Network copier I have an e-studio 65 that needs to be network. I set the static IP into the copier by following the handbook. At the end of the instruction it said to reset by selecting the reset on the copier. I reset but the IP does not stay in the copier. I set the password and it stay in the copier. I'm not sure how to make the static IP stay in the copier. I also can not ping to the copier either. Any help would be great.

Make sure that the IP address is fixed into the copier and not setup for auto DHCP. If it is, it can change the IP address during power up causing a big mess to unfold.

Then you can ping to it or go into internet explorer or any web browser and type in the IP address to the copier.

You can also set it up on the internet as well.

Star micronic sp700 ethernet problem


10.x.x.x subnet can't see 192.x.x.x network. There must be manufacture reset button on the Star micronics sp700?. You can configured your laptop/computer IP to 192.168.2.100 (not the same as printer) than use crossover ethernet cable (you can find it in best buy), connected directly between your laptop and printer, you should be able to see it on your browser now.

Most people big mistake when assigned static ip. First you need to reserve that IP on your router so it doesn't get pickup by DHCP and assigned to another devices.

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.

Shut down all the printers and computers.
Boot all the printers first to establishe their IP addresses.
Then turn on a computer and search the network group for what is online. All the printers should show as long as they have theit IP address.
Once their static IP is established the rest shall follow with what ever IP addresses are left. A dynamic IP setup grabs the available ip address and can conflict with a device that has that static IP if the static IP device is powered up after.

How can I connect wireless G print server to a 65bits windows vista without a problem, it just works for WIN XP


Hi, it appears that many are having problems with the WPS54G Print Server. I too have always found it hard to get pc to connect to it. My latest problem was with a Win 7, 64bit pc.

Setting up a printer with a print server is a two part configuration. First you need to configure the print server and then add a printer in your OS.

The following instructions are for a linksys wireless router and the linksys wirless print server model # WPS54G.

To set up the print server correctly go to this link.....http://www6.nohold.net/Cisco2/ukp.aspx?pid=80&login=1&app=search&vw=1&articleid=4142&donelr=1

Following is the instructions from the above link:
Title: Connecting the PrintServer Wirelessly to a Wireless Router Article ID: 4142 Before configuring the wireless settings of the PrintServer, make sure to know the following settings on your linksys router: SSID, and wireless security. To check the wireless settings on the linksys router, click here.
Configuring the Wireless Settings on the PrintServer
The wireless settings of the PrintServer can be configured using its web-based utility. Make sure the PrintServer is set to a static IP on the network.

Record the Print Servers IP address you will need it later.

NOTE: Make sure the PrintServer is already working when hardwired to the linksys router before attempting to use it wirelessly on your network.
Step 1:
Access the PrintServer’s web-based setup page. Open a web-browser such as Internet Explorer.
NOTE: If you're using Mac, use Safari to access the PrintServer's web-based setup page.
Step 2:
Go to the address bar and enter the IP address you've assigned to the PrintServer.
NOTE: To assign the PrintServer a static IP address, click here.
Step 3:
When the PrintServer setup page appears, click Wireless.
Step 4:
Enter the same SSID you have on the linksys router. Make sure the Network Type is set to Infrastructure then click Save to apply your changes.
Step 5:
Click Security and look under the Security Mode field. Select the type of wireless security your router is currently using then enter the corresponding security keys.
Step 6:
Click Save to apply the settings then close the PrintServer setup page.
Step 7:
Unplug the Ethernet cable connecting the PrintServer to the linksys router. Power it off for 30 seconds then power it on.
Step 8:
Make sure the Wireless LED on the PrintServer is lit and the Ethernet LED is off to indicate that the PrintServer is in wireless mode then try to print wirelessly.

Stop if you can print at this point. If not continue. The following instructions are for Windows 7, 64 bit OS.


Once the above steps are completed open windows file explore. Click Network and you should see a "print server" listed. Click on PRINT SERVER and you will see a network icon labeled p1.

You should now be able to add a printer.

In win 7 open the add printer and click "Add a network, wireless or Bluetooth printer", and click next. A searching for printer window pops up. It will list any network printers or print servers it see's on your network. You should see a listing titled "p1 on Print Server".

At this point you need to click "The printer that I want isn't listed. This is just below the "Select a printer" box.

Next a "Find a printer by nane or TCP/IP address" window opens. Select "Add a printer using a TCP/IP address or hostname. Click next.

Another window pops up which ask for a printer host name or IP address. Enter the IP address of your print server (the one you recorded when setting up your print server), and click next.

The next windows states the device is of unknown type. Under Device Type, make sure Standard is checked. Out to the right is a down arrow, click it and you should see many different devices displayed. Scroll until you find "Hewlet Packard Jet Direct", click on it to select it and click next.

Finally a "Install the printer Driver" window should open. Select your printer and follwing the instructions. If your printer is not listed you can click "Window Update" which will look for new printer divers. Once the printer driver is installed you should be able to print.

As you can see this in not a simple printer install. Good luck!

Your print server has to have its own IP address. If you have your computer as 198.168.1.1 then your print server would be 198.168.1.2.
You cant have the same IP address on any 2 items on your network.

Useing Linksys wpsm54g with tcp/ip


that will depend on the IP address of the print-server and the network, specially if the printerver is not set to a static IP, you may get communication errors when you try to use or install the printserver.

you may try to set the PS to have a static IP address or you may use the printserver name instead of its IP address.

use custom settings then use "RAW" after that chnage the queue name to p1 or l1.

there are many work arounds for this kind of limited configuration, but i would strongly suggest you call Linksys Toll Free Tech support for more configuration

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

DPR-1260 ... prints but cannot access web config page


To get into the web configuration you need to know your firmware on the DPR-1260. If it is 1.12, us http://dlinkps-xxxxxx where the X's are the last 6 number of the mac address. If it is 1.20 and up, use http://dlink-xxxxxx, where the x's are the last 6 number of the mac address. If you do set it up as DHCP or static and know the ip address of the print server just type in the ip address of the print server on the address bar.

Can't find printserver on the network


Most Print Servers are by default on DHCP and if the PS is still on its factory defaults, it won't get an IP address because your computer won't have a DHCP server (unless u have set up one). Now, you can ask the person you got it from if he had ever assigned a static IP Address to the PS. Also, one of the reasons why your laptop won't detect the PS might be a software firewall installed. Please revert back with any other questions or observations. good luck

Cannot find print server at all


How this works: Restoring the PocketPrintServer to Factory Defaults In most cases, the best way to restore the PocketPrintServer to factory defaults is through "telnet". However, if you are unable to connect to the device because of a configuration error, use the following method which does not require a network connection. To restore the PocketPrintServer to factory defaults, complete the following steps: 1. Disconnect the PocketPrintServer from the network and power cycle it. When it powers up, the LED will rapidly blink orange for five seconds. 2. Power down the device during the rapid orange blink period. Power up the device and power it down during that orange blink period two more times. 3. Reconnect the network cable and power up the PocketPrintServer. It will have restored itself to factory defaults and will rapidly blink green as it searches for a RARP or BOOTP server to find an IP address. Gleaning If an IP address has not been permanently assigned when the PocketPrintServer is powered on or reset, it will look for a "ping" packet on the network. If the PocketPrintServer receives a "ping" packet within two minutes, it will accept the IP address in the "ping" packet as its own address. To use Gleaning, you must have super-user privileges on a UNIX system. Gleaning also works under Windows 95 and Windows NT. 1. Add an entry in the ARP table that assigns an IP address to the Ethernet address of the PocketPrintServer. To do this, use the "arp" command. arp -s temp Example: arp -s 192.168.42.24 00:02:16:00:00:01 temp 2. Start a continuous "ping" to the PocketPrintServer. ping Example: ping 192.168.42.24 On some systems, this may require an additional parameter. Some implementations of "ping" only send out one "ping" packet which could get lost in transit. Check your system documentation for more information. 3. Connect power to the PocketPrintServer. The PocketPrintServer will "glean" its IP address from the "ping" packet. This IP address will remain in effect until the PocketPrintServer is power cycled or reset. Therefore, a permanent IP address should be assigned by running the ExtendView TCP/IP utility or via "telnet".
