1 Answer

Ttrying to install a new HP deskjet printer on my network. only have etherrnet cable but if i plug it in to the router the installation program can't find it. maybe because of bitdefender firewall so it gives me the option to assign a static ip address to the printer but i need to know the address range for the autmatically assigned ip addresses of the dhcp server so i select an address outside that range. not able to use secure easy setup. not a pushable button on my router.

I have a Belkin router N300 do I just plug in the printer Lexmark cable to the router and that is it.


To make my Lexmark e250DN work on the network using my new Belkin N300, I had to do this:
1. Install router as per Belkin instructions. 2. Power off printer, then connect Lexmark printer to the router. Power on printer. 3. In a Browser, go to 192.168.2.1 which is the Router's IP address. 4. Click on DHCP Client List. You will see a list of the "computers" connected to the router, which includes the printer. Your printer will have a very long alphanumeric Host Name (mine began with E00000) Note the IP address (something like 192.168.2.4) That is the printer's IP address. 5. In Control Panel, Printers & Faxes, a) if the printer was previously installed with a different router, edit its settings to use the new IP address; b) if the printer was not previously installed, ADD a Network Printer at address http://192.168.2.x (x being whatever your DHCP client list showed).
That should do it.

Unstable connection


It sounds like an installation issue. Depeding on the printer, you have to install the software while the printer is connected to the network (sometimes, and sometimes you have to connect directly) and when you install the printer software, you have to tell the computer to find the printer on the network. If you don't install it this way, you will have problems. The problem is the printer/driver software on the computer that can't locate the printer on the 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.

Printer won´t work


The printers listed in here are older models. If you have purchased a printer in the last 2 years, your printer most likely will work with a print server. If your printer is not mentioned in this FAQ, it may work. If you are using a multi-function printer, only the printing function will work through the print server. Several kinds of printers are not supported on a network. These include host-based (sometimes referred to as GDI printers), and PPA printers. There are also printers designed for home use that are not intended for support on a traditional network, but that may work in a Home PNA network. In addition, several HP Officejets are not designed for or supported on networks. Host-based (sometimes referred to as GDI printers). A printer that relies on the computer´s processor to rasterize the print job. Most host-based printers use the GDI interface built into Windows (hence the "GDI printer" term), so there is no need to convert the data to PostScript, PCL, or other printer language. Some HP Deskjet printers are PPA (Printing Performance Architecture) printers. With this new printing system, the printer handles only basic printer functions while the printer software on the computer handles the formatting. All formatting, such as color matching and correction, half-toning, edge enhancement, tone correction, and ink management, are handled by the software driver. Furthermore, some of the printers listed below may work on a network, but only when they are connected to the parallel port of a Windows computer that has the correct printer driver installed and printer sharing properly configured. Contact the support group for you specific printer for details. Hewlett-Packard PPA or host-based printers: HP Deskjet 710C printer HP Deskjet 712C printer HP Deskjet 720C printer HP Deskjet 722C printer HP Deskjet 820Cxi or 820Cse printer HP Deskjet 825C HP Deskjet 1000C printer HP Deskjet 1000Cxi printer HP Deskjet 1000Cse printer HP Original Photosmart photo printer (C3804A) HP LaserJet 3100 product HP LaserJet 1000 product family The following printers are not supported on traditional networks: HP Deskjet 900 series 930C 932C 935C 940C 950C 952C 959C HP Deskjet 800 series 810C 812C 830C 832C 840C 842C 880C 882C NOTE: HP does not recommend the use of the HP Deskjet, HP Deskjet Plus, HP Deskjet 300, 400, 500, and 600 series printers, or the HP Deskjet 850C series printers for shared, high volume printing. These printers have a low duty cycle and are not designed for high volume network printing. The models listed below are not designed or supported on networks. HP Officejet 300 HP Officejet 500 HP Officejet 600 HP Officejet 700 HP Officejet K60 HP printer/scanner/copier 370/380 HP printer/scanner/copier (HP PSC) 700/900 HP Officejet V
