Question about HP Laserjet 2605 Printer

Computer can't find printer

I moved my printer from my office to my home office. In my work office I was hooked to the entire (network) system. I used 1 cord to plug into the wall where my lap top was plugged into as well. I could operate my HP 2605 printer from there. When I brought it home I plugged the same cord straight from the printer to my lap top and tried to print and the computer says that it can't find the printer. The cord I am using has a snap on end like what a phone cord would have. Is there suppose to be another cord and what can I do to start printing?

When connected to a network you use "straight cables (cat 5 or 6 )". To go directly to a printer from your computer with no routers, switchs, or networking you use a "cross-over cable". Be sure your computer and printer are still on the same IP-address scheme. If your on auto IP, or DHCP it might have changed. Hope this helps

Your using an Ethernet cable and your not on a network. You most likely need a USB cable, or connect the computer and printer together with a router. How are you accessing the internet from home?

Make my Lexmark x5340 be wireless'


Is this a wireless printer? Is it being used for a large office or a small home type office? If you are using it for a home office and have multiple pcs, then you can setup a homegroup. A homegroup is like building your own personal small network. You will be able to share and print documents between your computers. Once you setup the homegroup, on one computer, then you will have to add the other computers to the group using the access code that the first computer will provide. Be sure to enable printer and file sharing when setting-up the homegroup. Once setup, you will be able to print your documents from any connected printer on your network. It's not wireless but it might help to solve a print sharing problem. Good luck. How To Set Up Homegroup Sharing Plus Printer Sharing

The printer (hp laserjet p2015) appears offline


Press and hol the green 'go' button until the lights flash, (about 4-5 seconds) and release the button,

Wait for the config pages to print out, and then check your network configuration, i.p address, Subnet mask and gateway.

If no network page prints out, you might have a dead Network Interface in the printer.

IR2200 as a printer/scanner - wireless network configuration


You need to hook an ethernet cable into your network. You could get a wireless router to extend another one and connect via ethernet into that if you prefer.

For setting up network settings, do you have the Network Guide?

Go to page 2-11 and follow the instructions there.

You can click the DHCP icon and hopefully you'll get an IP address etc. (you may have to restart using switch on right hand side of copier to turn off, wait a while then turn back on). Once you have an IP address click on the DHCP icon again to make sure it's not filled in with black and save settings.

IP address must be in same range as other devices on your network e.g 192.168.1.x or 192.168.0.x (only specify a number for x between 1 and 254, must not be used by another device). Subnet mask must be same as for other devices. It's probably 255.255.255.0 Canon Network ScanGear 2.21 (don't get the colour version) can be found on the Canon website (google it). Instructions for scanning are in the manual included with the download.

My printer canon ir2022n network printer does not print from my new vista business OS computer


Windows sharing based printers are dependent on the computer where the printer is attached. This means that if the computer is turned off, or is in the sleep/hibernate mode, then all the computers that can print through that server will not be able to print. To solve this issue you can use external print servers to share printers in the home/office. External print servers are connected to the router which allows it to be available on the network without being dependent on any other computer system. External print servers are available in both wireless and wired versions, and the choice between those options is based on the needs of the home or office.get more information and help for Network Printer Configuration .Hope this helps you.

Printer won't work on wireless home network after being installed on laptop. We have installed it on two different laptops and selected it and it still won't print from either????? Any ideas would be...


Usually this is a networking and firewall problem. Is the computer that is physically connected to the printer set to allow sharing the printer? Have you set the name of the printer to be exactly the same on all three computers? If you are using a better firewall than the basic one in Windows XP, have you set that to accept network traffic from the other computers in your home network? (This has to be done on all of the computers on the network so that they are in the same Workgroup.) Check that you allow bidirectional network traffic.

Sharing cannon printer MP170


If you want to make your printer a Stand-alone device (no need to be connected to a computer, just directly to the router) you may want to look at getting a Print-Server.

But if you just want to share the printers, you will have to install the printer separately on both computers (since they use 2 diff drivers for the printer), then share it on the vista computer. at this point you should now be able to print on both machines

Printer will not network


Hi Stukie, Something you can try. Install the downloaded "newest" driver in all you PCs and laptops even if they cannot see or share with the PC print server. If you can successfully install on each PC, then you try changing the port setting of the printer on each PC. Go to Start, Printers and Faxes, Right click on the HP LaserJet 1000 (assuming you were able to install on every PC), click on Properties, click on Ports Tab, Click on Add Port, Double click Standard TCP/IP Port. A new window will pop up > Add Standard TCP/IP Printer Port Wizard, in the IP Address, type in the IP add of the PC where the printer is installed, Port Name can be any name but try the Shared Name of the Printer, Next and follow all other instructions. Hope this works for you and pls post again how things turn up. Kind regards.
