SOURCE: Cannot print to Deskjet using JetDirect 175x

What model Deskjet is it?

Some models of USB printer are what is known as "host-based", which means that the printing functions are all handled by the computer. These printers won't communicate through an external JetDirect device at all. The most notorious is HP's Laserjet 1020 series, but a lot of the DeskJet series are host-based as well.

If the JetDirect test page isn't getting communicated, chances are you are out of luck.

Without an ethernet port, you can't connect to a router. However, adapters are available which can adapt usb to ethernet. Check your local computer store.

How to setup JetDirect Plus (J2591A)


Hi Sam,

I had a similar problem and solved it, so here is a step by step. Connected to a Linksys 54G wirekess router/hub it works fine on Vista and XP, the approach is the same but some windows might look different. You may not even need the HP software at all, as Windows recognizes the HP JetDirect. Also, depending on your PC software configuration, e.g Firewall settings and router settings you may have to permanently permit various communication request. The steps below are to be understood as a guide line and may vary form yours as there are different ways to achieve the settings. On Vista, Telnet is disabled by default and needs to be enabled frist. On XP telnet is enabled by default. If you use a Linksys or similar router, you may need to enable DHCP for some addresses or range that will be used. In such case see you router manual how to do that.


Step 1:

you need to know what your LAN address is, to find out you can open a DOS window and enter IPCONFIG, this will give you the current IP address and subnet mask. On a small home network it may be 192.168.1.xxx and sbunet mask may be 255. 255. 255. 0, yous may be different. Take note of these values (IP: aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd) as you will have to set the HP JetDirect J2591A to the same address range.

Step 2:

connect the printer to the HP JetDirect, have paper in the printer, power the HP JetDirect and hold the test button on the HP JetDirect for about 7 seconds, the printer will then print the current HP JetDirect settings. You may notice the address range the HP JetDirect is set to may not be the same address range as you need it to be (your noted once)

Step 3:

connect a PC computer directly to the HP JetDirect using an Ethernet CROSSOVER cable OR connect a PC via a hub and tow standard Ethernet cables to the HP JetDirect.

Step 4:

TEMPORARELY change this PC computer network address to the same address range as the HP JetDirect address range (www.xxx.yyy.zzz) currently is set to and reboot the PC.

Step 5:

after reboot, the Status LED on the HP JetDirect should be solid on and the activity LED should be off or flashing occasionally, idicating some network traffic. Open a DOS window on the PC and run a telnet session by entering TELNET www.xxx.yyy.zzz [ENTER]. You may have to hit the Enter key tow times for a connection to start. You will then see a screen as follow:



Please type [Return] two times, to initialize telnet configuration
For HELP type "?"
> >
===JetDirect Telnet Configuration===
Present Config : DHCP
MAC Address : 00:60:b0:ab:cb:4e

IP Address : 192.168.1.8
Subnet Mask : 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway : 192.168.1.1
Syslog Server : 0.0.0.0
Idle Timeout : 90 Seconds
Set Cmnty Name : Not Specified
Host Name : HP_PRINTER_SERVER

DHCP Config : Enabled
Passwd : Disabled
Novell : Disabled
DLC/LLC : Disabled
Ethertalk : Disabled
Banner page : Enabled
>
To Change/Configure Parameters Enter:
Parameter-name: value <Carriage Return>

Parameter-name Type of value
ip: IP-address in dotted notation
subnet-mask: address in dotted notation
default-gw: address in dotted notation
syslog-svr: address in dotted notation
idle-timeout: seconds in integers
set-cmnty-name: alpha-numeric string (32 chars max)
host-name: alpha-numeric string (upper case only, 32 chars max)
dhcp-config: 0 to disable, 1 to enable
novell: 0 to disable, 1 to enable
dlc-llc: 0 to disable, 1 to enable
ethertalk: 0 to disable, 1 to enable
banner: 0 to disable, 1 to enable

Type passwd to change the password.

Type "?" for HELP, "/" for current settings or "quit" to save-and-exit.
Or type "exit" to exit without saving configuration parameter entries
>

Step 6:

Now you can change (likely neccessary) the HP JetDirect settings, make sure the HP JetDirect IP address is in the same range as you need it to be (for example aaa.bbb.ccc.25), also be sure to set the DHCP Config to Enabled. Optional you may want to enter a Host Name, for example: HP_PRINTER_SERVER, once you are done these new settings must be saved by entering 'quit' [Enter]. You may want to repeat Step 2 and print the new settings to convice youself the settings are retained and correct. (power cycle the JetDirect of course)

Step 7:

Connect your HP JetDirect to the intended network.

Step 8;

On the PC used to do the HP JetDirect configuration setup, restore the PC's initial network IP sddress and reboot it so it can be used again with its original settings.

Step 9:

On a PC connected to the same network as the HP JetDirect, open a DOS window and run a ping by entering: ping aaa.bbb.ccc.25 [Enter] depending on firewall settings you may have to grant permission to allow the ping to come through. You should then see a screen similar to this:


C:UsersHW_Dude>ping 192.168.1.8

Pinging 192.168.1.8 with 32 bytes of data:
Reply from 192.168.1.8: bytes=32 time=5ms TTL=60
Reply from 192.168.1.8: bytes=32 time=3ms TTL=60
Reply from 192.168.1.8: bytes=32 time=3ms TTL=60
Reply from 192.168.1.8: bytes=32 time=3ms TTL=60

Ping statistics for 192.168.1.8:
Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 4, Lost = 0 (0% loss),
Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
Minimum = 3ms, Maximum = 5ms, Average = 3ms

C:UsersHW_Dude>

Note, there are 4 packets send and received without any loss. This is what you expect to see and great confirmation the HP JetDirect is on the network and ready. If you don't get that then there may be an issue with cabling and/or the firewall settings, you may want to double check these in such case.

Step 10:

On any PC connected to this network one can now insatll/connect to the printer that is connected to the HP JetDirect, using the Windows Add Printer Dialog, click to open the add printer wizard. Check the button for LOCAL printer (yes local, not networked !!! Who would have thought of that !? Thanks Bill G.) On the next screen that opens check the 'create new port' option and select 'Standard TCP/IP Port' OR (if available) 'HP Standard TCP/IP Port) and ckick Next. Another windows opens with TCP/IP setup wizard, click Next. An window opens, enter the HP JetDirect IP address (aaa.bbb.ccc.25) and click Next. Follow the Windows guide and finish entering the requested information. You may then want to print a Test Page once the dialog is completed, you may have to permanently allow requested traffic in the firewall settings again.

Step 11:

Your done, congratulations !

610N dissapeared no lights, empty EIO, reset no help


If you're seeing it intermittently, try the following:

-remove it completely
-power cycle the printer with it out
-check your contacts (be sure no bent pins, etc)
-Try it in a different slot if you have one (most HP's with an internal jetdirect have 2-3 EIO slots, but since you don't mention what model printer you have I don't know for sure).

If it's not talking after all that, likely the jetdirect is actually dead. It's been known to happen. I wouldn't waste the money on a replacement, you'll have better luck getting an external card and it'll be cheaper, too.

HP sells both the JetDirect 170X and 175X externals; there's also the Linksys PSUS4, D-Link DP-300U, TrendNet TE100-P1P, or Netgear PS101NA. Price will vary between $45-80.
