My Epson Label printer is showing as not connected when its connected, when trying to set up or add as new printer.

What shows mac and ip address ? printer or pc ?
If the printer displays them, it means the printer in connected to router electrically.
Check subnet mask and gateway address.
Could be set wrong if the router is not on DHCP.

I guess the issue is in the ethernet components / settings.
Start isolation by elimination of the following
1. Computer -
2. Wifi connection to the router (or)
3. Patch cable connecting computer to the wall -
4. Router -
5. Patch cable connecting the printer to the wall -
6. Printer -

The LAN printer cannot connect to Computer (PC/Mac) directly unless you use a Cross over cable.

Hi, does anyone know how to hook up a hp 4550n printer directly to a laptop with windows 7? It has a Jetdirect card (600n). I tried plugging a ethernet cable from the printer to the pc but nothing happens.

you need a crossover patch cable, then set ip address manually on printer in same range as your current IP e.g 192.168.0.x is your IP(use ipconfig), then set printer to 192.168.0.x+5 if no other devices are on network

Hi, I just took a router out of my system and now my HP 4000 N LaserJet is directly wired to my Mac G-5 via Ethernet, but when I try to print I get the message "printer not responding". Yes I've...

You will need to use a CROSSOVER patch cable.

If all IP addresses are manually set (i.e none obtained from a DHCP server), and the addresses are unchanged from when the router was in place, everything should work. But if you're using a normal patch cable, it won't - you need a crossoer cable.

There is a patch that you can download and run to resolve this issue.

  5. Try to scan again.
    If the problem still exists, follow Step 2 below.

Step 2:
Download the following patch:

  2. Reboot the PC.

  3. Unplug the power adapter from the back of the printer.

  4. Plug it back in after 30 seconds.

  5. Try to scan again.

If the problem is still the same

1.Get the printer ip address of the printer (ex:
-press settings on the printer panel.. go to network setup.. View TCP / IP, open a browser (IE or mozilla) and type in the printer ip address
-you will see the printer page and then go to configuration.. choose scan to network host
-delete all the computer name listed

2. Go to start, all program.. choose Lexmark 3500-4500 series and choose Lexmark Solution Center
-go to Advanced, click on networking and then click on Change PC name or PIN
--rename the PC name and then click on Ok

3. Turn off the printer, unplug it for 10 secs

4. Try to scan, it should work

if it's still the same you need to uninstall the printer driver and download the updated driver in

-reinstall it using the downloaded driver

Can't find the printer on my computer. Downloaded the software from Canon... nothing!

If you are connected via a network it should be plugged into some type of switch and it should have DHCP turned on to pull an IP address. (Unless you specify one for it)

If you are connected directly to the printer be sure you are using a crossover cable and not a standard networking patch cable.

6125N won't print in network

If you can address the printer through CentreWare then your halfway there. Is now possible to print a test print via CentreWare if that works look at your p.c, driver setup.
Good luck.

A change of configaration

Have you changed the IP address back to what the router used to be before the reset? If not then enter a new IP address in the machine and add new port in the driver for that same address then try.

95% sure that is all that is hope it helps
Thanks J
