Question about HP LaserJet 1000 Printer

1 Answer

Printer will not network

I have an HP LaserJet 1000 in my home office. A couple years ago, in another home office, I had it networked so both my computers would print from it, so I know it is possible to do. Now, in my new office, I have several computers hardwired through a workgroup - router box. We also have three personal laptops that we use wireless. Issue: only the computer physically hooked to the printer will print. Have enabled sharing and all that, but cannot make it work with the downloaded "newest" driver. Have been told the 1000 is a single-user machine but that there is a workaround - possibly a "general" driver? I know there is a way because I have made it work in the past. I just don't know how I did it, grins. We run Windows XP pro or home on all our machines. Thank you in advance for any assistance you can lend.

Hi Stukie, Something you can try. Install the downloaded "newest" driver in all you PCs and laptops even if they cannot see or share with the PC print server. If you can successfully install on each PC, then you try changing the port setting of the printer on each PC. Go to Start, Printers and Faxes, Right click on the HP LaserJet 1000 (assuming you were able to install on every PC), click on Properties, click on Ports Tab, Click on Add Port, Double click Standard TCP/IP Port. A new window will pop up > Add Standard TCP/IP Printer Port Wizard, in the IP Address, type in the IP add of the PC where the printer is installed, Port Name can be any name but try the Shared Name of the Printer, Next and follow all other instructions. Hope this works for you and pls post again how things turn up. Kind regards.

The printer (hp laserjet p2015) appears offline


Press and hol the green 'go' button until the lights flash, (about 4-5 seconds) and release the button,

Wait for the config pages to print out, and then check your network configuration, i.p address, Subnet mask and gateway.

If no network page prints out, you might have a dead Network Interface in the printer.

How to wirelessly access HP Laserjet 1320n via Apple iBook


You need to disconnect the USB cable and set it up wireless on both units:
Since it is plugged into the router, it should already have an IP address.
Un-install the printer from the computers.
Then re-install the printer from the cd or from HP's website. When you get to the point where it ask you is the printer is attached to the computer or is it over the network. Choose over the net work and the software will find the printer IP and finish setting it up wireless.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Computer can't find printer


Your using an Ethernet cable and your not on a network. You most likely need a USB cable, or connect the computer and printer together with a router. How are you accessing the internet from home?

Hp laserjet 1000 series problem


Time to clear some space on your hard drive. That's where virtual memory is paged to and from. Delete some files you don't need, and run defrag. Then your operating system will have more room to buffer the pages to the printer.

How do I set up a home network without internet?


Hi

By default, your wireless connection for your 2wire 1000HW is enabled.Assuming that everything is installed properly in your laptop ie wireless cards etc. than you can view your wireless connection using Dell Wireless connection tool and HP wireless tool. Your know its your network when it says 2wirexxxx {x=combined numbers}. To locate the built-in, 10-digit wireless encryption key for your system, please look at the bottom of the product [2wire] near the bar code label - looks like this : [xxxxxxxxxx].

If you want to access the 2wire Graphic Unit Interface ,you can access it by opening your browser and on your address bar type in homeportal- assuming you are able to connect to your 2wire wirelessly. You can view your network and change you wireless settings. This may also help you :

http://shastademo.2wire.com/rgw3-3/rgw/3-3/homeportal/network/wireless_settings.html

To connect your printer you must have a Print Server [ dep[ends on what model of laserjet you are using } and connected to your printer. Again you will need the encryption key to get it running. You must share your printer on each laptop by going to control panel and share it . In there you willl have the chance to change and modify the settings. You can also use the Windows File and Sharing Wizard. to get it both running.

Hope that would help you a bit. Pls feel free to post your questions in Fixya for further assistance.

Wish you all the best.

Cheers.
