How to set up an HP to a NW directly

I am trying to figure out how to set up my HP 2420 to my internal network directly. It has a NIC and I figure that if I plug in my network cable directly to the printer there is some way I can put the printer on the network but I am not sure how and don't have a manual for the printer.

Yes, you can connect your printer to your network by plugging it into a hub, switch or router that is connected to your network.

The general HP site for your printer is here.
The Network manual is a little bit convoluted, but helpful. It is here.

You might have to re-install the printer software, which you'll find on the same page (first link). It is usually the biggest download you can find. Don't we all love HP...;-)

If you need any further assistance, please come back and I am happy to help.

First of all, routers come with static ips... (the default is usually 192.168.1.1). So I am going to assume you mean your internet ip is a dynamic ip. Now Im not an ISA expert, so I may be wrong... but ISA should work with a dynamic external IP. And lastly if you cant get it to work, a quick call to your ISP will get you a static IP.

or


Try to configure the IP address of the external NIC in the same network as your router with the default gateway pointing to your router´s IP address.

In the internal NIC, configure the IP address of the internal network in the same subnet as your internal clients, set no default gateway and set an internal DNS.

In the internal network definition, you should put only the networks behind ISA trust interface.

Create access rules according to your needs.

Can i connect my xbox to my laptop /w pc usb


Xbox Network Connection using Hub

This is the most common network configuration and is also the easiest to setup.
Step #1: Plug your network cable(RJ-45 cable) that comes from your cable/DSL modem into the uplink port of your hub. (Make sure that your uplink is switched to "on").
Step #2: Take an RJ-45 cable and run it from one of the ports of the hub, directly to the Network Interface Card (NIC) installed in your computer.
Step #3: Take another RJ-45 cable and run it from a different port of your hub directly to your xbox.
**NOTE** A switch may be used in place of a hub with the same basic setup.**

That's it! No other network changes should be needed for this configuration. Your Xbox is now on the same network as your PC.

Xbox Network Connection using Router

This is another common network configuration.
Step #1: Plug your network cable(RJ-45 cable) that comes from your modem into the WAN port of your router.
Step #2: Take an RJ-45 cable and run it from one of the ports of the router, directly to the Network Interface Card (NIC) installed in your computer.
Step #3: Take another RJ-45 cable and run it from a different port of your router directly to your xbox.

**NOTE** In steps #2 and #3, you should not use a port that is directly beside the "uplink" port on your router, if your uplink port is being used to connect to another routing device.** If your router has a built in firewall, you will need to forward ports 8602 both incoming and outgoing to the internal ip address of your pc. Consult your device manaul for port forwarding.

That's it! Your Xbox is now on the same network as your PC

Xbox Network Connection using Crossover Cable

This is the last network configuration. For this setup you need at least one NIC card.
Step #1: Plug your USB cable that comes from your modem into your PC's USB port. This should already be done, if you have a usb modem for your current internet connection.
Step #2: Take an RJ-45 cable and run it from an installed NIC card on your PC, directly to the Xbox.

**NOTE** A crossover cable is only needed if you are connecting the Xbox directly to the second NIC card. If you have a device such as a switch, hub or router in between you should use a standard RJ-45 cable. This type of network setup also requires "Winroute©", a program downloadable from the world wide web. Consult the manual for specific instructions on how to set this up. Also if you have a USB ethernet adapter, you may use any of the setups described herein. USB ethernet adapter basically converts a USB cable into an RJ-45 cable.

That's it! Your Xbox is now on the same network as your PC.

EIO 1 ERROR


There's probably a problem with the card in the printer. It may need a firmware upgrade, you may need to adjust settings or even change the slot. The EIO 1 means it is now in slot 1. Here are some steps to try from the HP website:

Press (Select) to enter the MENUS.
Press (Down arrow) to highlight INFORMATION.
Press (Select) to select INFORMATION.
Press (Down arrow) to highlight PRINT CONFIGURATION.
Press (Select) to select PRINT CONFIGURATION
Check if the I/O card is on ready state.
Make sure that TCP/IP status is ready.
Check the network statistics for any bad packets or bad transmition.
Try to use another slot then the one that the JD is installed on.
If the problem persist,try performing a cold reset with the JD inside.Warning: This will reset the printer's configuration to the default settings,and also to the JD so you will need to set again the network values.

This is not a printer problem. You have a computer problem. In ALL cases, the printer is told what to do from the computer, it does not report TO the computer.
