How do I find or give my printer an IP address?

I have a Dell AIO 962 printer connected to a Windows XP desktop PC. I can print from a laptop on my home network, and now would like to try printing from a new MacBook, and someone said to just plug in my printer's IP address. But the printer does not seem to have one, when I go into configure.

You have your printer set to sharing (it does not have an IP addres because it does not have network capabilities).

    Hi! Regarding this matter. The dell photo AIO 962 may not be compatible with windows 7 thats why it gives you the error message. You downloaded the driver using vista32 but you have a windows 7 on you machine, its not gonna work. It may work on the toshiba if you gonna downgrade from windows 7 to vista, but if you dont want that option you can wait for sometime to have an AIO 962 update for windows 7 for it to work. Hope this helps and have a good one!

    Dell 3300 adapter


    Hi,

    Let me recap, just one more time.
    Your wireless router,
    You updated the firmware(most have out dated firmware from sitting in the warehouse)
    Broadcast SSID
    Using WPA-PSK(TKIP) Security
    Mixed mode(b and g, n if available) This is needed for wireless devices to work properly.
    Channels 1, 6 or 11. These channels are the channels most wireless devices work on the best(I use channel 11)
    Now for the printer. Download and run this patch to completely remove the printer from your computer.

    The patch is password protected. The way around the password protected zip file is to open the zip file with Winrar or 7zip(.exe file)

    Restart your computer.

    After router is done, now setup your wireless print server/printer.
    3300 Utility
    3300 Firmware
    Attach the 3300 to your computer using the USB Cable and insert the 3300 disk. Follow the instructions. It should ask you for the network ID, type of security and password.
    Download the proper drivers.
    XP Drivers
    Vista 32-bit Drivers
    Install the drivers, choose network, choose I'm using a wireless print server(if you do not see this, then choose add printer and you should see it then) and follow the instructions.

    Thanks for contacting Fixya

    Vista is tricky when adding networked printers.  
    Add printer by using a local device, not a networked device.  Assume the printer is connected locally to the machine.

    Setting up a wireless printer


    Hi Rob,

    The situation seems very vague, First off, you have to identify if you're using this for a corporate environtment usage or are you using this on a home network? Next question would be,if the network you're connecting the dell wireless adaptor to has reserved the ip address for the allocation of the printer. If not, then there are a few possible reasons for your situation:

    • IP Mismatch. If you're connecting the dell wireless adaptor directly to your printer and network, ensure that the IP ADDRESS of the printer is matching that of the ipaddress of the printer driver in your computer (Control panel>Printers>Right click printer>properties)

    • Driver Error. Download the latest driver for your model printer and install it on your notebook. Once this is done, make sure you are able to "see" the printer by printing a test page.

    • Not conencted to the netwrok. Sometimes, this happens when you're not connected to the netwrok (but you think you are just casue you see a "connected" icon). Make sure you're conencitng to YOUR network everytime you reboot and not mooch on some other netwrok.
    Hope this helped. Please do let me know how it goes. Thank you.

    The Automatic Private IP Addressing (APIPA) protocol
    automatically assigns an IP address from the range:
    169.254.1.0 to 169.254.254.255. If the APIPA protocol is
    disabled, the default IP address of a Brother print server is
    192.0.0.192. To change it, use the printer control panel (if
    applicable), the BRAdmin Professional, Web BRAdmin software
    or let your DHCP server allocate an IP address to the printer.
    2 Refer to chapter 10 of this User’s Guide to learn how to
    configure the IP address on your printer.
    3 The default password for Brother print servers is access.
