I have a Xerox 6120N. My router config is 192.168.0.2 and my printer IP is 192.168.0.4. I've also did the TCP/IP printer setup with XP and it's setup as 192.168.0.4. Do I need to enable something in my router in order to print cause I this point I can't print anything.

Re: TCP/IP Printer on DLINK N Router
What is the current state of the printer under Printer and Faxes on the Control Panel? If it's offline after you setup TCP/IP printing just right click on the printer icon then change the status from offline to online your printer should say ready below it and to test if it's already associated to the network try to run a "ping" test from your computer and check if you will get a reply from 192.168.0.4 which is the IP address of your printer as you mentioned. If your gettings time outs try to disable all the firewall and antivirus on your computer usually that will do the trick.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Port-forwarding allows connections from the network, i.e., to TCP port #80 at the IP-address assigned to your router, to be "forwarded" (much like a switchboard operator at a university)
to any specific TCP port (but usually the identical port-number) on a SPECIFIC computer "inside" your network.
If your router is '192.168.0.1', then it probably will give-out IP-addresses like '192.168.0.100'
and '192.168.0.101', and '192.168.0.102' to the first 3 computers on your network.
So, "port-forwarding" is used to designate one of those 3 IP-addresses as the one to receive/process all the 'TCP port #80' traffic.
On the router's web-interface, on the "port-forwarding" page, just add an entry for 'TCP port #80'.
You can open the admin page of the dlink router to set up the SSID in the wireless section. To do that, you will need to connect a PC to it and set up an IP address for the PC in the same subnet of the admin IP address of the router. You may see the admin IP address on the back or the bottom of the router or from the manual or from the web site of the manufacturer. If the admin IP is 192.168.0.1, you can set up the IP address of your PC in the TCP/IP properties to use a static IP such as 192.168.0.10 or something and open the admin page of the router in a web browser by using the admin IP address of the router as the URL. Then you can login there and change the setting. After you get the SSID and maybe WPA password set, you can use it for wireless connection on your home network.
To install a HP printer (with built-in Jetdirect print server) as a network printer you need to do the following - 1.Open the printer’s menu and enable the Network Card – then configure the IP address of the network card so it matches the IP range of your network. Eg. If your IP's are 192.168.0.xxx then set the network card to a high number say 100 then set the Subnet Mask IP address to 255.255.255.0 If you have a wireless router then check the IP addresses that the router issues to the computers on your network and configure the IP address in the printer accordingly. 2.Install the HP printer driver on your computer/s using the LPT printer port. 3.Connect the printer with a LAN cable to the network hub/router. 4.Click on Printers and Faxes - right click on the HP printer and click on Properties. 5.Click on Ports and click on Add Port. 6.In available ports - click on Standard TCP/IP Port and then Configure port. 7.Tick the IP box and type in the IP address of the HP's printer IP address. 8.Click OK and tick Enable bi-directional support and then OK
Install the HP printer driver on every computer on your network and configure the printer’s TCP/IP port as previously detailed. Do a test print page to check the printer. You can now print from any computer on your network.
It sound like youe wireless card in the laptop is not configured correctly.
The TCP/IP settings on the laptop's wireless card should be as follows :-
In the wireless card's Properties - TCP/IP
Enablw - Obtain an IP Address automatically
Enable - Obtain DNS server address automatically
go to add a printer, set it as a local attached printer, and set the port to TCP/IP. From there enter in the IP Address of the printer that you are trying to print to from the config page i had you print out.
After that is completed install the print drivers and you are good to go.
Connect one end of an ethernet cable into the ethernet port on the printer and the other one into a free port on the router. Then, using the install CD, tell it that you are attaching a printer on the network. The software should automatically detect the printer on the network and set itself up for it.
for reseting the password of ur dlink router u have to press the rest button on the dlink router (genrallyit on the bottom or on the back of the router it is like a hole u have to use a pen or pin to reset the router back to its factory default settings after that password of the router will automatically back to admin or password login to ur router change the settings to static ip in the router so that u can provide the static ip of the other router to ur this router (example if primary router HL 2170 ip address is 192.168.1.1 then u will provide this dlink router the ip address as 192.168.1.5, subnet 255.255.255.0 default gateway 192.168.1.1 primary dns 192.168.1.1 now save the settings in the dlink router now the ethernet cable from ur other router will go directly in to the internetor wan port of this router. now connect wirelessly to any router both will work fine without any problem
The issue may be due to the existence of two (2) DHCP servers; 1 in the Cisco 675 and the 2nd in the DLink DI-524. You need to disable the Cisco's DHCP server function and assign static IP add & config to the DLink WAN config. This way it will only be the DLink handing out IP adds to the network.
The workaround. Install your original configuration/setting without the DLink DI-524 - PC direct to the Cisco 675 (I am assuming through Ethernet ports). Verify that indeed you are connected to the Internet and can surf the net, check e-mails, etc. Check your Networking Connection Status. Log down your PC's IP Add, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, DNS. For purposes of discussion, let's call this "N1".
After your Internet connection has been verified with your PC directly connected to the Cisco, remove the direct connection and connect the DLink DI-524 in between the Cisco router and your PC.
Log in to the DLink and modify WAN parameters using the "N1" configurations/settings.
It might be of help to disable any security (WEP WPA, MAC etc) at least while configuring.
Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.
make sure the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) of your system is set to "Obtain an IP address automatically". to check, follow this steps:
On your desktop you have the icon "My Network Places", right click it then select Properties, then on "Local Area Netwok" right click again then select Properties, Then select the "Internet Protocol" then clcik "Properties" then select "Obtain an IP address automatically".
pls make sure also that the IP Address of your DSL Modem is not the same with the IP Address of your router. If in case they have the same IP Address, change first the IP address of your Router before connecting to your DSL Modem.
