Verify your pc is in the same workgroup. You can do this in the control panel, systems. You will need to reboot after you make a change in workgroups. (If you need to make the change.) If you are in the same workgroup, go into your command prompt windows, and type "ipconfig /all" This will show you full configuration on your network. Good Luck.

Limited Connection Error


A limited connection on a Windows PC usually means that there is no connection to the internet on that segment. That is if you connect to the printer via a network switch or LAN. Newer printers can act as a DHCP server/router assigning IP addresses to LAN clients. It has no impact on your LAN if you do not want or need a connection to the internet. However if you want to access the internet from this PC I suggest you get a separate router and use that as the DHCP server on your LAN. Connect the PC and the printer to the router and disable the DHCP server on the printer. Also make sure that all devices (PCs and printer) are using the router as the default gateway. Once again if you don't need an internet connection the limited connection shouldn't worry you.

Hp laserjet P2055dn - print config report indicates IPv6 Address, will not network print. How can I clear this?


IPv6 is upgraded from IPv4 (Internet protocol).. Its implemented in 1994 this adres is stored in DNS, it is no way connection with the printer, when the printer is connected through lan net work, auto IP adress will assign by the DNS server depend up on the settings.. you can change the desire IP adress with the family range. If the printer is not showing IPv6 adress, system administrator can help you in this regards depens upon their permissions. Selected printer IP adress ahould be with in the family range and no IP conflict definately printer will work..

Hp pavilion a330n Internet Explorer won't connect.


check your IP Adress settings are correct for this machine,
Go to start ,then click on run,Type CMD,Then type IPCONFIG/ALL.it will show you a list of all the devices connected to your machine and your local network,

Have you got LAN & WLAN adaptors on board?
this will explain your message,
you will have to set the ip settings on each adaptor
ie LAN 192.168.1.2 and WLAN 192.168.1.3
This wiil help determine which adaptor is to be used when connecting to the network and the internet.

If your using wireless on computer to connect to the internet then run your wizard to help setup the connection

Same for the wired LAN ,use your wizard

The settings for your modem can be reset easily and your ISP will help get you connected to the net because you already have an account with them,

How can i established network connection with ir2800 and desktop


First of all you must have a local network hub.Connect your network hub with your computer and the Ir 2800,your IR have to be equip with a network card.(If only have to connect one computer and your computer is not connected to a LAN network,you can use a cross-over cable connected directly from the computer to the IR machine.Give your computer a ip address by right clicing on the local LAN select properties and select internet protocol ver 4,and select a ip address.If your computer is already connected to a network,dont change the ip address go to command prompt tipe in ipconfig/all.This dos command will show you what the ip address is of your computer.
Example the ip address is 192.168.1.10,Select a ip address for your IR by changing the last class to any number.But you must make sure this ip is not in use,lets say you select 25.In the command prompt tipe :ping 192.168.1.25.If you get a reply,dont use the number.Select a number untill you dont get a reply and a time out response.
Now use this IP address and program it on the IR2800 under additional funcktion system setings,network settings,TCP IP settings.
Switch the machine off for a minute and switch it back on.

Now load the printer drivers of the IR and add the port you selected.
Restart the computer,

And print to your computer.

If you have any trouble along the way,just send me a note

Network printing (network port)


The copier and the workstation should have IP addresses from the same LAN class.

Open any internet browser and try to see the printer's webpage - Command Center by typing the printer's IP address.
If you see it = OK if no then something is wrong with the network ...

If you are using a router/hub check if you have a green light for the printer port at the router/hub and at the printer - ussualy a green light indicate OK

If the cables and the rest of the network hardware is OK do a ping from your computer to the printer.
In windows XP: Start->Run-> type cmd
then: ping xxxx.xxxx.xxxx.xxxx
whre xxx = printer IP address
you should see a replay if everything is OK

A very simple check is to bypass the whole network infrastructure (which may be at fault) by connecting the PC or a laptop direct to the printer using a cross-over network cable. Give a static IP to the printer and a static IP to the computer. from the computer you shoould see the printer webpage (open any internet browser and typ the printer's IP Address)

Sometimes for security reasons routers have ON some filters - check any firewals about MAC / IP filters or ports. To print using the network printer you need to let open port 9100.

Connected on Wireless but unable to connect on Internet


If not done allready, setup the lan IP address and default gateway in win98 Click MyComputer-ControlPanel-Network-Double Click TCP/IP Adapter for your 3com device-insert LAN info for IP Adress-subnet mask, Gateway and your Internet service providors DNS Addresses info Tab's (3x different Tabs "IP Adress" "Gateway" "DNS Configuration") IP Adress will be at least one number higher than your gateway address and not allready being used by other PC's on your network and gateway address will same as your router interface address subnet mask will be the same for all PC's on your network. For 3com and Netgear routers LAN setup is usually Gateway = 192.168.1.1 Subnet Mask = 255.255.255.0 IP Adress = 192.168.1.10(choose alternate number than 10 if allready used by another PC on your network, try to use round numbers, must be a number higher than 1) Once all info is entered click OK (this may trigger a database info update message and task)now your LAN is setup and ready to talk to your network Restart PC and try browsing again. May possibly require reinstallation of the TCP/IP client (you double clicked this to setup your LAN in Win98) or reinstallation of the IIS(Internet Information Services)component found in, Add/Remove Programs-Add/Remove windows components and then try LAN setup again if this does not work first time round
