Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Offhand, it would seem that the network/IP address of the shared computer or printer has changed since you changed routers. This would hold true since both models of routers are DHCP enabled meaning both provides their own batch of IP addresses. Two ways to go about this:

  • re-install the shared printer/computer to all the PCs attached to the network;
  • manually configure the IP address to follow the old setup.
Post back updates/developments. Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Try disable BiDirectional Communication on the PC

ALSO make sure you have the latest drivers and updates. Make sure your linksys is open for shared printing

load
driver as local to LPT1 first and then change the port over to the network

also remember to
Update the firmware after installtion from linksys's site after setup. ...

Hi, is the hp6400 connected to the network wirelessly? You will most likely have to configure it again, possibly by connecting it with usb to your computer and runing the configuration software again. or reinstalling it.

Five computers networked with Linksys WRT320N router. Operating systems: Win 7.0 on 3 computers (two hardwired)(one laptop - wireless), Snow Leopard 10.8 on 1 (wireless), and XP on one (wireless). Also...


Sometimes this problem occures when you install a later model wireless router.
Try installing the latest Wireless card driver on the XP computer and the LAN card drivers on the other computers except the MAC.

HP printer cannot find access point and I'm not sure what to do.


You must first connect your printer to the pc using usb cable, then run installation wizard that is on the CD that came with the printer.

Wizard will guide you through the setup orcess where you will provider your routers ssid (linksys) to your printer, and your printer will use that ssid to connect to your router.

After the Wizard setup is done, it will tell you to disconnect the usb cable and only then your printer will work on wireless.

Good luck,

I have an Epson Stylus Photo R220 Printer connected to a linksys print server, but



Well, The first thing you should do is to try to test of the print server is properly connecting to the printer. Check the linksys printserver manual and look for how to print a status sheel from the print server. Once done, get the IP address of the print server. Go to your laptop and navigate to control panel/printer. See if you have the driver installed or download the Vista Drivers from Epson.com/support. During the installation, it will ask you what connection type your computer uses. cancel out of the installation or choose LPT1 as the port. Once done, go back to control panel/printers.Right click the R220 icon and navigate to properties. Select ports after that and add a new port. Select Standard TCP IP port after that. Once done, the wizard will appear. Input the IP address of the printer and finish the wizard. you should be good to go after this.

What brand of print server would be compatible with a linksys broadband router and the HP printer?


You asked for any advice. If you want to use a server, you must already have at least a home network set up (it could be wireless or hard-wired). Yes, stand-alone "print servers" are notorious for only supporting certain printers. If you don't know this before you buy, you may find yourself returning your print server to the store. However, instead of a standalone print server, have you considered setting up one of the computers in your network as a "print server"? That's the way it used to be done. That's the way my own network is set up. You would set up your multifunction printer as connected directly to one of the computers in your network. Enable "printer sharing" on that computer. Then do the following on all other computers in the network for which you desire access to the printer: Add a network printer. If asked for drivers, get them off the printer's installation CD.
