Question about Sharp MX-2300N Color Copier

Cannot change network settings - Admin password unknown

Previous employee left with all passwords, and cannot contact to recover them. Need to modify network (alter static IP address and subnet mask), but cannot see any way into that setting, other than (I assume) via the "administrator", for which we dont know password (tried 00000000, 12345678, etc, etc..).
Is there a maintenance mode through which we can re-set the admin password (and I assume wipe out email address book).. but anyhting is better than nothing.

Got in with random trialling passwords for the Administrator... finally found the default password for Administrator on the Sharp MX2300N was "admin". Should have known...

Got in, set up the IP's and away we go again. Did not have to go in with any maintenance mode or re-setting the whole system.

    There is a simulation mode which will reset the admin password if this has been changed, Make sure you are on the copy screen and then select # * C + = hash star the RED C button and then Star. This must be done in a fluent motion and not hesitant finger movement. You should see a big list of simulation numbers. Plese dont mess with any of these if you dont know what you are doing. OK now type in number 24 then press the copy button (as to make a copy) then hit 31 this should say service password initialisation. click on execute and yes then press CA button. and it should either restart or go back to the copy screen. the password is reset !! enjoy.

Yes, the default admin on MOST MX model Sharp machines is admin

On the old Sharp models the username is admin and the password is Sharp from the webpage, and the key operator code at the copier's touch screen is 00000.

Why Subnet Mask is used with IP address


In networking the subnet mask is used with IP address to get the Network ID. The Network ID is used to identify that the particular IP address belongs to which network. To get the network ID the Subnet Mask is AND ed with the IP address in binary format.

Example:-

IPv4 address contains 4 fields and each field is 8bit

IP Address - 192.168.10.2

Subnet Mask (Default)- 255.255.255.0

Binary

192 -> 11000000

168 -> 10101000

10 -> 00001010

2 -> 00000010

255 -> 11111111

Logical AND (formula)

* 0 AND 0 = 0
* 0 AND 1 = 0
* 1 AND 0 = 0
* 1 AND 1 = 1

192.168.10.2 ------> 11000000.10101000.00001010.00000010

255.255.255.0 ------> 11111111.11111111.11111111.11111111
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
11000000.10101000.00001010.00000000 (AND ing)
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hence after AND ing we get the network ID that is 192.168.10.0, so the IP address 192.168.10.2 belongs to this network.

Enjoy networking.

How to figure out your default subnet mask


A subnet mask is a 32-bit binary number, very similar to an IP address. And like an IP address, the subnet mask is usually expressed as a set of four octets written in decimal form, with each octet separated by a period.

The subnet mask is used by routers and switches to determine which part of a computer or other device's IP address is the network identifier, and which part is the host identifier. There are three default subnet masks, one for each of the IP classes A, B, or C. The default subnet masks are:

Class A = 255.0.0.0
Class B = 255.255.0.0
Class C = 255.255.255.0

To determine the default subnet mask for your network, all you need to do is see which class your network falls into. A network's class is assigned based on the first octet (the set of digits before the first period) of the IP address. For example, to find out which class the network 123.22.8.0 belongs to, you would see where "123" fits into the following table:

First Octet: Class:
1-126 = Class A
128-191 = Class B
192-223 = Class C

So for the example above, 123.22.8.0 is a Class A network, which means it would have a default subnet mask of 255.0.0.0.

Most home and office networks will be Class C networks, so your default subnet mask will typically be (you guessed it) 255.255.255.0. Not all networks use the default subnets, but for those that do, figuring it out is easy once you know which class your network fits into.

10 rca tablet keeps losing connection have to shut down to get it to connect


Try setting it to a static IP address.
open router settings (type your routers ip address in web browser I.e.192.168.1.1)the admin name and password are normally on the router)then lan settings
set the MAC address of tablet as static noting the IP address (192.168.1.4 for example),subnet mask (normally something like 255,255,255,0),etc.( to find your tablets MAC address settings then about)
when you have set the router up, on tablet tap the settings then wifi, modifiy settings tick use static scroll down and enter new ip address ,subnet mask default gateway(your routers in address).
its easy then it looks.

LD335c Networking causing SC990


You need to check the network address of the newly connected network. you said it was connected to a network A (e.g. 192.168.1.0 subnet mask 255.255.255.0 or /24) and now you are connected to network B (e.g. 192.168.2.0 subnet mask 255.255.255.0 or /24). Your device had an ip address assigned in the old network, could be 192.168.1.99 this ip can not communicate with the new network 192.168.2.0, you need fir to find out what is the new network address and subnet you need to ask your network admin. and then modify the setting of your router to be part of the new network.

Ip address dynamic


Dynamic and Static addressing are the two main methods used for IP address assignments. Dynamic IP addresses are automatically obtained and nothing needs to be done on the user end. However, Static IP address information must be configured manually. If you do not have a router, you need to input your static IP information directly into your Apple Macintosh.

Click "Apple > System Preferences." Click the "Network" icon. Click the "TCP/IP" tab. Choose "Manually" in the Configure drop-down menu. Click in "Show" and choose your Ethernet device. This is usually called Built-in Ethernet. Enter your IP address into the IP Address field. Enter the Subnet Mask into the Subnet Mask field. If your service provider did not provide you with one, use the default of "255.255.255.0". Enter the Gateway address into the Router field. Enter the DNS Server into the DNS Servers field. Two should have been provided to you. Push the "Apply Now" button to confirm changes.

I lost my net gear n150 cd and i want to change my password..


How to View or Change Your Wireless Network Password Symptoms:
  • You have lost or forgotten the password to your wireless network
  • You have lost or forgotten the password for the router, access point or other network device
  • You left the default password or used a weak password and someone has hijacked your network

Depending on the router, you can either view or reset the wireless network password (also referred to as the passphrase or security key) if you can log into the router. Some routers mask the wireless network password, so while you cannot recover it, you can enter and save a new password.

If you cannot log into your router because you have forgotten the router password or your network has been hijacked, please refer to "Lost or forgotten password for router or other device" below.

To view or reset a wireless network password:

  1. Log in to your NETGEAR router by browsing to http://www.routerlogin.net or http://www.routerlogin.com. Enter the username (admin) and password. By default, the password is password or 1234 unless it has already been changed.
  2. From the left-hand navigation menu of the Router Manager, select Set Up > Wireless Settings.
  3. From the center screen, select your encryption type from under the Security Options heading.
    • If the wireless network passphrase is visible, review it and use it to log devices onto your network.
    • If it is not visible, you can change your wireless passphrase; however, changing the passphrase will cause you to lose your wireless connection. Connect your computer to the router with an Ethernet cable before entering a new passphrase into the text box and clicking Apply.
If you cannot log into your router:

Unfortunately, there is no way to recover a lost or forgotten password from a router or access point; you will need to reset the device to factory defaults. However, once the device is reset to factory defaults, you can use the default username ("admin") and password (either "password" or "1234" depending on your router) to reconfigure your router settings.

NOTE: Restoring factory defaults on a device will erase any customizations you have made. You will lose any configurations saved to the device!
