Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

We need to get the printer to recognize the network server name or IP address. At present it says "Unable to connect to (DC-260-795622). The server name or IP address may be invalid.


Ensure that all your network settings on the printer are correct, especially the DNS settings. Are you able to ping the printer from a workstation? Maybe you have a bad cable connecting the printer.

How i solve the blank print on a3 paper on autocad


It seems you are using a print server to connect the printer 1280 to your LAN. Uninstall the printer software and printer server driver. Connect the print server to the network and first re-install the print server driver. Then connect the printer to the print server and install the printer software. Refer user manual for assistance. Bot the print server and printer software should be compatible with your operating system.

How to make a printer wireless


Plug into a wireless print server.If your printer has a USB port, you can plug in a wireless print server, a small box into which you can connect your printer. The advantage of investing in a print server is that you don't have to connect the printer to a PC, which means you can use your laptop and print anywhere in your home.
.tmnAdsenseContainer{margin-bottom:10px;} We found plenty of print servers in the $50 range on Newegg.com, although many of the models cost closer to $75 or $100). Before you buy, make sure the print server is compatible with your printer (the printer's written materials are less likely to specify compatibility with print servers).
During the setup, you will have to plug the printer into the printer server, and connect that to the router using an Ethernet cable. Meanwhile, you'll have to install software on your computer and configure the connection, as you would when setting up a router.

How to connect my printer to a router


This model Canon printer has onlt an USB connection to a computer.
The only way to connect this printer to a router is to install a printer server with an USB connector, connect the printer to the print server and then connect the print server to the router using a LAN cable.
The printer driver needs to be installed on all the computers on your network and then to the printer properties then Port tab and add a TCP/IP port then configure this port with the print server's IP address.
Do a test print and if the test print is OK then printer is installed correctly.

Can the epson R220 print wireless


It can't print wirelessly with the native hardware. It has a USB 1.1 connection. You may be able to find a print server that can connect to a wireless router. However, you will need to check the specifications. Some print servers will only work with select printers or OS combinations.

The specifications for the R220 are here: http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/consumer/consDetail.jsp?BV_UseBVCookie=yes&infoType=Specs&oid=58654761&category=Products .

I hope this helps.

Cindy Wells
(note since this is an older printer with a USB 1.1 connection, you can expect the printer to be slow with a wireless connection. If your signal strength drops, you may need to reboot everything (computer, print server, router and printer).)

Losing connectivity on my OKI MICROLINE 3320 printer


Hi chris_tzo;

Without knowing your configuration on your servers, it sounds like a sharing issue on the printer. If one of the servers is set to be a print server, then you need to duplicate that on the other. If you don't have a print server, then you are sharing the printer from a workstation. In that case, what I would suggest, from the computer that you are having problems with. Drill down into the network to the computer/server that is sharing the printer and when you get to the printer, right click the printer and click connect. This will load a direct connection to your computer, and you shouldn't have any disconnect issues again. If you do, I'd say it's a network IP problem that is causing the disconnect, which is a whole other can of worms.

Good Luck

Mark

I have an Epson Stylus Photo R220 Printer connected to a linksys print server, but



Well, The first thing you should do is to try to test of the print server is properly connecting to the printer. Check the linksys printserver manual and look for how to print a status sheel from the print server. Once done, get the IP address of the print server. Go to your laptop and navigate to control panel/printer. See if you have the driver installed or download the Vista Drivers from Epson.com/support. During the installation, it will ask you what connection type your computer uses. cancel out of the installation or choose LPT1 as the port. Once done, go back to control panel/printers.Right click the R220 icon and navigate to properties. Select ports after that and add a new port. Select Standard TCP IP port after that. Once done, the wizard will appear. Input the IP address of the printer and finish the wizard. you should be good to go after this.

Connecting printer to SBS (Small Business Server)


You can physically connect the printers to the server and share it from there or leave the printers connected to your computer and have the server connect to them via a Local Port which routes to your computer!! To do the Create the local ports you'll need to 1.) share the printers on your pc 2.) Go to the server and go to printers in control panel 3.)Click on Add a new printer then next 4.)Select Local Printer connected to this computer; De-select Automatically Detect Printer 5.)Select Create new port and select Local Port 6.)In the enter a port name, enter the full network path to the printer i.e. \\your-pc-name\printer-share-name click ok 7.) Select the drivers for that specific printer(if its not there click on have disk then browse to the drivers to install them) 8.) Continue through the installation until finish) 9.) Repeat steps for additional printers Keep in mind that your computer still needs to be on! You can check to see if your printer support a network card to make them fully network printer you can add them to the server this way and only the server would need to be on! Or you can also get a print server(Device that makes regular printers into network printers). Now when it comes to the scanning, i don't know of any way to share a scanner with just windows alone, but there are third party software that allows you to do that Check out http://www.remote-scan.com/ There are also printers that sorta do the scanners sharing by automatically scanning and putting files in a designated area on the network! Hope this was helpful regards, babb
