    Try to ping the computer's loopback address ->

    If you get 4 replies (no loss), computer's ethernet is ok. As it worked before via direct pc to printer direct ethernet connection, I'm concerned with the printer's ethernet port. And you already changed ethernet cable (regular and crosscable).

    Standard network setup is the printer to be connected to a router/gateway or a hub, not a good option for troubleshooting if you have to buy the mentioned equipment but better for us if you can borrow one. Got to mention that the printer's network settings requires you to key-in a Gateway address which make the printer look for it for network communication. View this documentation for your reference about network setup ->

    As I checked all documentation Minolta's site have, no in-depth networking information can be found (probably their tech support have access to those information) at 1

    Update me.

My Hp office-jet Pro X576 printer is connected via a network and if l send a print job it displays printer error switch off machine and the printer restarts .if l use usd it works fine

I would ensure that you have the current firmware installed on the printer and make sure that you are sending the job via network with a correct driver. If you manually set the IP address on your computer and the printer you should be able to connect direct using a crossover cable, I do that in the shop all the time.

Having trouble adding printer canon ir3300 thru ethnet connection. directly to laptop. This printer isn't on the current network. So, I'm not sure if I need to add it first. Can you please advise.

You will need to buy a "Crossover Ethernet Cable". A ordinary straight through ethernet cable will not work. When you connect the crossover cable the laptop will see it and assign an IP address as though it was on a network. You then need to create a standard IP Port. take a config printout and look for the ip address. Add a single digit one to the address and make that you std IP Port.

Install your network driver and it will look for the printer on your new network (your laptop and printer). providing it does then all should work ok.

Good luck.

We have recently purchased the iPF8000S. When the printer is networked it pauses on each line of the print job. When the printer is connected directly to the computer with a crossover cable the printer...

It may be a NW protocol/switch/router/driver issue. I print to my 8000s on USB 2.0, since the 8000s has no Gig E. But I had a few problems trying to connect to the Remote UI on separate network card with dedicated address. So in the end I left printer with dedicated address and plugged it into my el cheapo NW switch. The remote UI connected straight away via browsers URL to printers IP address. This way I can move files amongst mailboxes and rename them etc without affecting the print spools flowing via USB. Crossover cable should not be needed either on a modern device, since it should be more intelligent and realize the direct connection, auto switching pairs as needed. If you really need to drive 8000s on NW then I'd remove driver and try setting printer IP first via LCD, then forcing Garo driver installer to search and find the printer IP when re-installing its Garo driver.

Not printing from network.All cables connected. Also when searching for printer it still shows up.I've tried turning it off and on i printed an IP Config Page to check adress but all seems fine.

plug first printer on pc using usb cable, if no encountered problem setup next in network connection,
Step 1 To set up a network printer, it is important to initially take note of its manufacturer, model, and IP address. In some instances, network administrators assign a different IP address to the network printer instead of using the default manufacturer settings. Normally, these bits of information can be found on a sticker or label on the printer hardware itself. It is assumed that the necessary device drivers are present either on a disc or stored locally on the hard drive. Step 2 To begin the setup process for an SCO UNIX-based system, jump to Step 12. For computer systems using the Mac OS X Operating System platform, continue to Step 17. Machines running on Microsoft Windows XP or Windows Vista environments can begin setting up the network printer from the next step. Step 3 Click on the “Start” button and select the “Printer and Faxes” options if you are using Windows XP. Under Windows Vista, click the Windows icon, choose the “Control Panel” option, select the “Hardware and Sound” category and then click on the Printer module. Step 4 Double click on the “Add a Printer” option to launch the Add Printer Wizard and then click on the “Next” button. Step 5 In the succeeding window, make sure you select the “Local Printer” option and do not select the “Automatically detect…” feature. Click on the “Next” button. Step 6 Choose the “Create a new port” category under the Type field and use the “Standard TCP/IP Port” option. Click the “Next” button twice for Windows XP machines. Step 7 In the Printer Name or IP Address box, type in the IP address assigned to the printer hardware by the manufacturer or the name designated by the network administrator whichever is applicable. Click on the “Next” button and then the “Finish” button to complete the process. Step 8 In the Select the Printer Port window, choose the “Use the following port” option and make sure that the Standard TCP/IP Port is selected from the list. Click on the “Next” button. Step 9 Choose the appropriate name of the manufacturer and the model of the printer. If the device driver is present, simply click on the “Have Disk” button and then click on the “Next” button. Step 10 For the Name box, type in any name you prefer which will identify the printer hardware to the network environment. Also, specify if this will be used as the default printer of the network. Click on the “Next” button. Step 11 In the next screen, make sure that the “Do not share printer” option is chosen. Click on the “Next” button twice and click the “Finish” button to finalize the setup process. The network printer should now be accessible to all clients. Step 12 For SCO UNIX machines, the user must log in as root and execute the sysadmsh command. Step 13 Select “Printers”, followed by “Configure”, and then the “Add” from the “sysadmsh” option. Step 14 Make sure that the Connection Property should have the direct value. The Device Property must be equal to Hardwired. The /dev/null should be the value assigned to the Device name for a TCP/IP network.

Connect kyocera fs680 to laptop

it depends on what laptop you have. the fs680 only has a parallel connection so your laptop needs to have a parallel port or you need a usb to parallel converter.
