Hi there,

What king of network cable are you using?

If your using a ethernet cable, try using a crossover cable instead. this is the prob i have come across a few time.

You can also check the printer networking settings by going to:
Start => Control panel => Printers => then left click and press propites,

this way you can check all your network connection settings for your printer.

If problem still presists, then i suggest trying to link the printer up with another system and trying the network card on that.

Please rate my solution.

Hope this helps

Try a different cable and ping the printer.

    Try also unplugging the printer from power for a while.

    If it shows cable not connected with all cable and restarting does not fix the printer then the printer network card may need replacement.

    If the problem is on computer side instead, reinstall network driver.

The network and connectivity button is not working


if the machine has been set up prior to this fault and you could print to it then the connection is faulty or the password or ip address has changed.. go to the printer panel on your desktop and right click on the printer then go to ports and check the connection mode if you have ausb connection on the printer this should show up if it is set to anything else the fault lies in the port settings.. you can also print a test page from here as well on the general settings page there is a tab for test page do this and see the result.. if no page the connection to the printer is wrong or the cable faulty. if you have a network cable look at the printer input panel .. where the cable goes in there should be two small lights on aone green and a yellow below probably of no light at the connection point on the panel you have no connection.. as a last resort uninstall the copier fron=m the server/computer and reinstall use the same ip address for the copier and you should be ok.. you might need the gateway address too if you have a hub set up.Good luck A

Ricoh Aficio 1027 network connection problem with vista x86


It will not work to directly connect a network cable directly from the network port of the printer directly to your computer. You will have to use a cross-over cable and configure your TCP/IP settings manually. However, to utilize network printing and have internet access, you will want to get a router and connect your modem to the ethernet port of the router, then a network cable from pc to switch port on router, and a network cable from printer to a differnt switch port on router. Most consumer routers have a built in 4-port switch, so that should allow enough connections. You may want to consult a local IT company or Ricoh dealer for the rest of the setup. This will allow the framework for network printing and/or scanning.
