Re: putting right the ip address ?

Before you proceed you need to know the static IP, Subnet Mask and Gateway address for this printer. Once you have them: -Enter the menu mode by pressing the + button -Press the + button till you come to the Network Menu. -Press the Enter button. You should now see TCP/IP. Make sure it says Enabled which is the default setting. -Press the + button till you come to IP address then press the Enter button. - IP addresses (for now) consist of four octets or four groupings of three numbers such as in this example **. Using the + or - buttons (+ counts up 0,1,2,3?.; - counts down 255,254,253?..) you are going to set the number of the first octet or in the case of the example *192*. Once you?ve set it correctly hit the Enter button. -Do the same for the other three octets. Hitting the Enter button after setting the fourth octet will set the new IP and take you back to the TCP/IP menu. - Press the + button till you see Subnet Mask and press the enter button. - Just like the IP address the Subnet Mast consists of four octets. Set the value to you needs just as you did with the IP address. Again when you hit the enter button after setting the fourth octet you will be taken back to the TCP/IP menu. - Again press the + button till you come to Gateway Address and hit enter. Enter the Gateway IP address exactly like you did when setting the IP address. Don?t forget to hit the enter button to set the address. You should now be at the TCP/IP menu again. -To exit the menu press the On-line button on the printer. Your printer should now be configured with you IP address, subnet mask and gateway address. As an added check I would go back into the menu by pressing the + button, going into the Information Menu and printing selecting the Print Menu Map option. Verify the setting we just made with what is printed out at the top of the page. If everything matches you?re ready to go! Let us know how it goes and please don?t forget to rate this posting.

    How to reset the NIC to use DHCP

    If you press the test button once on the network interface (a small black button near the network port) This should print out the network settings, you can then confirm the IP Address etc set on the printer.

    I belive the defult setting on the network card is for DHCP= OFF, so if you default the network card you may not get the result you required.

    The netword card can be set to defult by holding down the test button for more than 10 seconds. This should reset the network settings to factory defults.

    You can unlock the menu on the 6312 by pressing the MENU and ENTER buttons and keep them held down for 5 to 6 seconds you can then access the menu.

    The IP Address, Sub Net Mask and Gateway can be set via the control pannel menu on the pritner.

    If the IP Address set in the pritner is valid for the network you should be able to get to the printers web page, you can then make changes to the pritners and network card configurations.

    My brother printer MFC-640CW has stopped taking comand to print documents from my computer, i can copy and scan, but not print . ink pads are full.

    Make sure the status and configuration of the print server. Check following:

    1 Make sure that the machine is powered on, is on-line and ready to print.

    2 Print the Network Configuration List of the machine and check if the settings such as IP address settings
    are correct for your network. The problem may be the result of mismatched or duplicate IP address.
    Verify that the IP address is correctly loaded into the print server. And make sure that no other nodes on
    the network have this IP address.

    3 Verify that the print server is on your network as follows:
    For Windows®
    (1) Try pinging the print server from the host operating system command prompt with the command:
    ping ipaddress
    Where ipaddress is the print server IP address (note that in some instances it can take up to two
    minutes for the print server to load its IP address after setting the IP address).
    (2) If a successful response is received, then proceed to Windows® 98/98SE/Me Peer-to-Peer print
    (LPR) troubleshooting
    . Otherwise, proceed to Step 4.

    4 Reset the print server back to the default factory settings and try from the initial setup again. For
    information how to reset to the default factory settings, see Restoring the network settings to factory in the manual.
