Connect the printer to the print server. Push the test button on the test button on the print server. Two pages will print. One of the pages will contain the IP address for the print server. Connect the print server to the router. Now you need to go to the Control Panel and select "Devices and Printers". Select "Add a Printer". When it searches for a printer, select "The printer I want isn't listed". Next, select "Add a printer using TCP/IP address or hostname" and click "Next". Now, enter the IP address from the test print and click next. That will do it.
INSTALLING A NETWORK PRINTER These instructions generally apply to all network printers with built-in network cards (print servers) such as HP Laserjet printers, IBM Infoprint laser printers etc. This example is for a network HP Laserjet printer. 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 – these print servers use a static IP address therefore, 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. (This is to prevent a conflict with the router issuing the same IP address to a computer on your network). Then set the Subnet Mask IP address to 255.255.255.0 If you have a wireless router then check the IP address range that the router issues to the computers on your network and configure the static IP address in the printer’s network configuration 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.
An easy way would be to download and install nmap. For the IP address to scan, if your computer ip is say, 192.168.0.52 then enter 192.168.0.0/24 and select the quick scan. Whichever device comes back with an open port of 9100 is most likely the print server.
Check you firewalls. Sometimes you will have to allow certain mac addresses or certain ip addresses (may be less secure than the mac address), then change sharing level to full, before things begin to work.
If you know the IP of the printer & the printer is connected to the network, try pinging the IP address of the printer. After that, open a command prompt & type the following command then press Enter: arp -a This will display the arp cache on your computer. Check the list & find your printer's IP, & opposite to it, you will find its MAC address listed.
The problem is you want to have the printer on a fixed IP address. This can be done by reserving the IP for the mac address of the printer in the router OR simpler just set the IP address in the printer.
Change IP settings The default setting for the IP settings is Automatic, which sets the IP settings automatically. However, if you are an advanced user, you might want to manually change the IP address, subnet mask, or the default gateway. To see the IP address and subnet mask of the HP All-in-One, print a network configuration page from the HP All-in-One. NOTE: When manually entering an IP Setting, you must already be connected to an active Network, otherwise the setting will not stay when you exit from the menu. CAUTION: Be careful when manually assigning an IP address. If you enter an invalid IP address during the installation, your network components will not be able to connect with the HP All-in-One. To change IP settings 1. Press Setup. 2. Press until Network is highlighted, then press OK. The Network menu appears. 3. Press until Advanced Setup is highlighted, and then press OK. 4. Press until IP Settings is highlighted, and then press OK. If the HP All-in-One is already connected to a wired network, you are prompted to confirm that you want to change the IP settings. Press OK. 5. Press until Manual is highlighted, and then press OK. 6. Press to highlight one of the following IP settings, and then press OK. • IP Address • Subnet Mask • Default Gateway 7. Enter your changes, and then press OK to confirm the setting.
It has been a few months, so you probably have resolved this -- but just in case someone else is looking to find out the IP address on the internal print server of an HP Laserjet 4000n printer so they can set it up on their network, here are the steps to find the IP address on the HP JetDirect internal print server:
1. Have the Ethernet cable plugged in to the router and the JetDirect 600n card and power it on.
2. Make sure display screen on printer says "Ready".
3. Press the Menu button on the printer until you see Information Menu.
4, Press the Item button on the right (+) side until you see Print Configuration page.
5. Press the Select button and a configuration page should print.
One page is the printer's configuration and the other page is the print server configuration page. If you have a good JetDirect card, and good connection to your router, the IP address of the printer, plus its subnet mask and default gateway should be shown on the EIO configuration page.
If the printer has been manually set with a static IP address, subnet mask and default gateway that will not work on your network, you will see the settings will indicate "Configured by" User Specified.
To clear those settings and allow DHCP setting, perform a cold reset on the JetDirect card, by powering off the printer, holding down the green "Go" button and powering it back on until you see "COLD RESET," let go of the green Go button, wait a couple of minutes, then run another configuration page to see the freshly assigned DHCP address of the print server.
Reinstall the printer on your operating system. For example, Windows XP is probably still trying to print to the old IP address. You will need to find out the new IP address of the printer and tell your operating system to print to that new ip address.
How to check the print server is in the wireless network or not!!
Check under the Router Setup page Router's ip address...
Check if you are able to ping the Print Server Ip address....Since it the router will assign a ip address from DHCP range..
If you are able to ping the router's ip address and the print server ip address then the print server is in the Wireless LAN...
Try the following steps.
1. Go to run and type "cmd" press enter
2. type ipconfig.
3. Check the range of ip address...if its 192.168.0.XX
4. Try pinging that ip address..
5. If able to ping the router and print server.. Then the wireless network is fine...
Somehow some of the printer's don't work with some of the print servers.. Check if D-link does support the printer or not!!!! for this particular model of the router...
