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.

I bought a new AR675W router and I'd like to configure this module as an access point to connect my blu ray in my existent wireless network. I tried all different configurations and didn't have sucess. Do...

It is a relatively simple process to use the router as an access point. Follow these procedures:

1. Assuming the router is still at the default settings, connect the router to your computer using a patch cable from your computer to any of the lan ports on your new router, then enter in your browser's url window and press enter (your computer must be setup to pick up ip addresses automatically). You might need to restart your computer.
2. enter admin for both user name and password in the router's logon window
3. click on network on the left and then select lan
4. enter a new unique ip address for the router that is the same as your local network (e.g. if your local ip is then enter
5. make sure the subnet is the same as your local network (e.g.
6. disable DHCP on the router and click on Apply
Now connect the router to your network using a patch cable from your existing router to any of the lan ports on the new router. Connect your computer to the network. Thats it, you are done.

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.

  2. Reboot the PC.

  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

Changed from AT&T to a cable company for DSL. Trying to set up

You need to "fool" your cable box into thinking that the wireless router is the computer. This just means that the modem is locking into the first ip address it can get... it tends to block out all others. Here's how to remedy and allow everything to get access...

1 Shut off computers, routers, everything.
2. Turn on your wireless router FIRST... leave everything else off until you see it's completely booted.
3. Then with the cable connected to the modem/cable box and the router, turn on the cable box/modem and let it cycle up. This should allow the cable modem to "find" the wifi ip address as the main ip.
After that, turn on any other routers, and the computers...
This should allow you access to the net by any of your computers because the wifi router should give all the other comptuers and routers on the system inddividual ip addresses and all should be well...
Give it a try and let me know!

Alert msg from syamantec endpoint protection MS RPCSS attack

So lets just clarify what this is.

The Intrusion Prevention Engine in SEP is detecting network based attack traffic for a Microsoft vulnerabity - this will correspond to a security patch from Microsoft.

Whether you want to blindly ignore it is your choice, but you should at least confirm it is EITHER a false positive OR that your machines are patched against the vulnerability BEFORE you simply allow the traffic and potentially put yourself at risk.

Think about, do you know what machine the attack is coming from - is it on your network (it looks like it is), is it running SEP, is patched, etc.

Router sends my printer invalid ip address

Wow what a mess, this is hard to explain easily?

All network printers should be set to a Static IP address. (Fixed address). Somewhere in your Printers network settings you will find this, it should not be set to DHCP...

Your router is probably set to DHCP, which reassigns all address.

Your computer will send out a communication telling everyone on the network the PCs new address...

Your network printer will not do this.

In your PC in the Print Driver Properties you will see Ports which should have the IP address of your printer, which is a TCP/IP port.
Which will stay the same as when you installed the printer.

When your printer reboots and a new is address assigned if set to DHCP, the pc will still look for the old address, while the printer has a new address.

That is why the printer should have a static IP address assigned from within the machine
The gateway, subnet mask should reflect the same as your network. (The gateway does not have to be in there to work by the way, if you’re using it on the same router)

If you reinstalled the printer after your system rebooted, you probably have the printer installed more than once.

If you do not set the printer to a static IP address this probably will happen again when it is restarted or there is a loss of electricity.

Hooking a patch cable directly from your PC to Your printer will not work; it will work with a crossover cable and a few minor changes to the settings.

USB and Network use different protocols. TCP/IP uses a completely different addressing system.

I don’t think your problem was with your network, as much as it is with the Static address of the printer.

If it is printing for you now the easiest thing to do here to prevent future hassle...
print the network settings

go into your printers IP Networking settings and set the IP address and Subnet as what the printed page is ( I usually turn off DHCP, IPV4, IPV6, NetBIOS etc, and only have tcp/ip on, if your machine offers this?)

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
