Can't use MFP Features with Network Printer - Windows 7

Hi, I've got this printer installed on the network. I managed to get the drivers installed form the Kyocera site. Printing works fine. I tired to install both Twain / WIA drivers for the scanner. I got WIA driver installed, but does not seem to find network printer. The Twian drivers I eventually got one installed, but in the control-panel driver list it says 'Device not started'. I've tried, updating, uninentalling reinstalling but with no joy. I imagine this is because its over network, rtaher than USB. Then I found the document on the Kyocera site of how to configure the scanner for network use. Seems like you can create accoutns on the printed via the webserver console. I enabled SMB, then set up an account called 'PC' where I specifed my PC name as the server name, and an existsing network share as the path - under the SMB section. I followed the advice on scanning from the MFP directly, selecting the destination - PC, and then tried to send. The scan occurs, but produces an error on sending. It then prints a summary page says that an error occured but not whatthe error was - so I have no way to debug it. It seems to me that some 'authentication' to connect to my PC is missing. Surely it needs to know a username and password to connect to on my PC. I tried specifying both a valid user on my PC as well an internal printer user that I created (but those are more to do with physical access to the printer I imagaine) rather than authentication to a SMB location. How on earth can I make this work? The document above suggests it should be possible. Also then considered even maybe using a physical print server, but the descriptions appear so vague. Many say spports Multi Function - for most devices, but hard to find a dveice list or know that it support Win7. Can anyone tell me of one of these print servers that actually works for this device on Win7? Also, how do these print-servers work, since I will still have to address the printer as if it were a nework printer even though its connected from the print-server to the device as USB. Does the server effectively install a generic device driver for MFP's to allow this functionality to work and thn somehow convert that to send over TCP/IP back to the computer? Would I have to have some kind of a bridge driver installed on my PC to understand that message? Regards Grant

You din't wrote what's the model of your printer, but I think we can find a solution:
1. Try to ping the IP adress you assigned to the printer. If that works, please download the latest drivers or installation software from the manufacturer of your printer (or second option use the installation disk that came with your printer). If it does not reply to ping, be sure the IP adress you assigned to the printer is in same range as the IP adresses on your network.
2. It is possible that the installation software itself manage to find the printer on the network, and that means the problem is solved
3. If not, install the printer as it is local attached (e.g USB or LPT port)
4. After installing as local printer, please go to printer proprieties, go to port, choose add a new port, choose standard tcp/ip port and write for the port the IP adress you assigned to the printer.
5. Apply changes and ...that's it.

Please let me know if it helped,

Good luck!

With that, you need to install the printer into your windows 7 computer and windows vista computer.
Even though the printer is installed into your windows xp computer wirelessly and set up as shared printer, you still need to install it on to your other computer because you need to install the driver and other printer's software to maximize the features.

Since the printer is already connected, you just need to run the appropriate installation package, the one that's compatible with your Operating System, and install it via Wireless or via Network. For the correct installation package. You can download it from the hp website and check the Support and Driver's section.

I can't find drivers for my Konica Minolta Di1611 printer for windows 7 64 bit

Hey all, after a load of grief, and NO help from the INTERWEB, I have chanced upon a solution. Firstly I installed a new local printer with IP number for network printer and associated network address/port (\\server\konicami). Then I installed the win7 64 bit bizhub162 drivers. Then I installed the win7 64bit BH 164 drivers and put an additional driver of x86 win2000 on the properties (server has win2000). Then, when I selected the BH162 driver in printer properties driver pull down menu, it worked. wahey.
