Printer IP needs to be in the same range as the computers and router. All should have the same first 3 sets of numbers....

192.168.1.

the last set of numbers identifies the individual address of the piece of equipment.

Change the IP address on the printer to 192.168.1.251 and see if you can see it in the internet explorer address bar...(should bring up a web page that displays the printers status) The other numbers should look like this:

255.255.255.0 (or similiar)
192.168.1.254 (Gateway ?)

Make sure the PC's all have the same first 3 sets also...or they won't see the printer.

Printer offline and not printing


Since this is a network printer there are a few potential sources for problems.
  1. IP address conflict. When items on a network are powered on and off sometimes the auto-assigned IP addresses aren't refreshed. The router may think the printer isn't there and re-uses the IP address for a new device on the network, but the printer is still trying to connect with the original IP address.
    1. Log onto your router. See if the printer shows up in the DHCP Client Table of your Local Network - it may have names or just MAC addresses depending on the router. You can print out a test sheet from your printer and see what *it* has as it's IP address and see if that's assigned to something else.
    2. If you do find a conflict, the easiest solution, IMO, is to assign a static IP address to the printer.
  2. Bad cable or hub. Both can go bad and a problem with either will cause the printer to appear to be offline.
    1. Check for lights at both ends of the ethernet cable.
    2. Try a different port in the hub or router
    3. Try a different cable
  3. An recent update corrupted your printer settings.
    1. Uninstall the printer, then reinstall it

Set up wirelessprinter hp


INSTALLING A NETWORK PRINTER These instructions generally apply to all network printers with built-in network cards (print servers) such as HP LaserJet printers, IBM Infoprint laser printers etc. This example is for a network HP LaserJet printer. To install a HP printer (with built-in Jetdirect print server) as a network printer on a wireless network . You need to do the following -
1. Open the printer\'s menu and enable the Network Card - these print servers use a static IP address therefore, configure the IP address of the network card so it matches the IP range of your network. Eg. If your IP\'s are 192.168.0.xxx then set the network card to a high number say 100. (This is to prevent a conflict with the router issuing the same IP address to a computer on your network). Then set the Subnet Mask IP address to 255.255.255.0 If you have a wireless router then check the IP address range that the router issues to the computers on your network and configure the static IP address in the printer\'s network configuration accordingly.
2. Install the HP printer driver on your computer/s using the LPT printer port.
3. Connect the printer with a LAN cable to the network hub/router.
4. Click on Printers and Faxes - right click on the HP printer and click on Properties.
5. Click on Ports and click on Add Port.
6. In available ports - click on Standard TCP/IP Port and then Configure port.
7. Tick the IP box and type in the IP address of the HP\'s printer IP address.
8. Click OK and tick Enable bi-directional support and then OK
9. Remove the printer cable, then do a test print to see if the printer prints correctly.
Install the HP printer driver on every computer on your network and configure the printer\'s TCP/IP port as previously detailed. Do a test print page to check the printer.
You can now print from any computer on your network.

We have a networked HP Laserjet 4100; a new PC was added and the printer does not show as available on the network for this new Dell Vostro 460. The driver was installed and still nothing. Can you suggest...


Thank you for contacting FixYa with your printer inquiry.
This is usually a pretty common network problem for printers and other devices on a network. If you network uses DHCP that automatically assigns IP address's you may have developed a conflict when you installed your new printer.
You will want to print a configuration page from both printers to determine what the IP address of each is then manually configure independent IP address for each to preclude further conflicts.
Refer to this excellent HP document page on the LJ4100 Jet Direct Card for manual configuration:
http://www.printerhacks.com/how-to-setup-an-hp-laserjet-printer-with-the-built-in-jetdirect-network-card/

How do I change the printer address on my optra t614


I only work on HP printers, but I believe I've seen this model before, if it is simply a network printer, it should have it's own web administrator console. Basically, if you type in 192.168.0.251 it should bring you to a control panel for the printer where you will be able to change the IP address. (Note: You will lose connection to the printer when the IP address is changed, but you can simply access it by entering the new IP address in your web browser)
