Hp photosmart won't print in color


Blocked print head nozzles
Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent blocked print head nozzles. You may have blocked print head nozzles.
Try the printer maintenance to clear the printer nozzles.
After several deep cleaning attempts and there is no improvements in the print then a new print head is required.
A new print head maybe expensive and it maybe more cost effective to purchase a new printer.

Connecting to a Wireless Network with SSID Broadcast Disabled when using Windows Vista & Windows 7 Article ID: 5451
Disabling SSID broadcast is another way to secure your wireless network. This will ensure that your SSID will not be detected whenever someone does a scan. When connecting to a wireless network with SSID broadcast disabled, you will have to create a profile.

Creating a Profile

NOTE: Disabling SSID broadcast is another way to secure your wireless network. This will ensure that your SSID will not be detected whenever someone does a scan. When connecting to a wireless network with SSID broadcast disabled you have to create a profile.
Step 1:
Right-click this icon kb_5451-001_en.png at the bottom right-hand corner of the screen, then select Network and Sharing Center.

NOTE: If you are using Windows 7, just click once on this icon kb_5451-003_en.png at the bottom-right of the screen then select Open Network and Sharing Center.

On the Network and Sharing Center window, click Manage wireless networks.

Step 3:
Click Add. NOTE: You have to remove your preferred network before before you proceed to click Add a new connection. If you see your network has changed from Automatic to Manual, you will face difficulties to connect your computer on the network because the SSID is not broadcasting into the available network connection. After removing your preferred network and adding it back, the network will turn to Automatic and you will be able to connect automatically into your network. Make sure to look at network properties/Connection and check "Connect when this network is in range".

TCP/IP Printer on DLINK N Router


What is the current state of the printer under Printer and Faxes on the Control Panel? If it's offline after you setup TCP/IP printing just right click on the printer icon then change the status from offline to online your printer should say ready below it and to test if it's already associated to the network try to run a "ping" test from your computer and check if you will get a reply from 192.168.0.4 which is the IP address of your printer as you mentioned. If your gettings time outs try to disable all the firewall and antivirus on your computer usually that will do the trick.

Macintoshes and Print Servers, the PS110 in Particular


Topic 1. What do I need to connect a Macintosh to the PS110 Print Server? A PostScript printer with a parallel interface, a Mac running MacOS 8.6, 9.x, or 10.x. (NETGEAR products are not supported for earlier versions.), and Ethernet cables to connect the Print Server to the printer, and the Print Server to your Macs, and to a router. NETGEAR's RP614 router is known to work connecting the PS110 to the Internet with Macs. Topic 2. How do I avoid losing my network configuration when restarting my Mac? When changing theMacOS configuration it is best to use Configurations (MacOS 8.x or 9.x) or Network Location (MacOS 10.x) settings instead of changing settings for each category (TCP/IP, AppleTalk, AirPort, etc.). That way you can be sure the changes will not be lost after rebooting. To Create a Configuration in MacOS 8.x or 9.x 1. Open AppleTalk (or TCP/IP) from the Apple Menu in the upper left-hand corner of the screen. 2. Select File > Configurations > New Configuration. 3 . Type a meaningful name for your new configuration (e.g., NETGEAR Wireless Router). 4 . Make your changes to the AppleTalk or TCP/IP settings. 5 . When closing AppleTalk or TCP/IP choose Save Changes. Whenever making Configuration changes for settings in MacOS 8.x or 9.x, open File > Configurations or press Command-K. Changes in Configurations are saved after rebooting. To Create a Network Location in MacOS 10.x 1. Open the Apple Menu by clicking the Apple icon in the upper left of the screen. 2. Select System Preferences. The System Preferences window displays. 3. Click Internet & Network > Network. The Network Settings window displays. 4. If the window is locked, click the Lock icon in the lower left to unlock the Network window. (You may be asked for a username and password.) 5. Click the pull down menu next to Location at the top of the Network window. 6. Select New Location. 7. Type a name for your new location and click OK. 8. Make your changes to the TCP/IP, AppleTalk, and AirPort settings. 9. Click the Lock icon in the lower left to prevent further changes. The Apply configuration changes window displays. 10. Click Apply to keep the configuration changes for the newly-created location. 11. Close the Network window. Topic 3. How do I connect a Mac to the PS110 Print Server? For MacOS 8.6 and 9.x 1. Follow the instructions in the NETGEAR PS110 Installation Guide coming with the Print Server. (The CD is not needed unless you need the Reference Guide.) 2. Connect the PS110 Print Server to the PostScript printer with a parallel interface. (You cannot use non-PostScript printers with Macs on the PS110 Print Server.) 3. Connect the Print Server to the Mac. 4. Install the Printer Driver for the printer to be used with the PS110 Print Server on your Mac. 5. Open Chooser from Apple Menu. 6. Select LaserWriter 8. 7. Select the PostScript Printer to use. (This is probably the description for the PS110 Print Server and may have a name like ?PSD90335?. This name may be different on your computer.) 8. Click Setup. 9. Click Select PPD. 10. Select your printer from the Printer Descriptions list. 11. Close the Chooser. 12. Click OK. A message displays: ?You have changed your Desktop Printer.? You can now connect to the RP614 Router Gateway, and to the Internet. For MacOS 10.x 1. Follow the instructions in the printed NETGEAR PS110 Installation Guide coming with the Print Server. (The CD is not needed unless you need the Reference Guide.) 2. Connect the PS110 Print Server to the PostScript printer with a parallel interface. (You cannot use non-Post Script printers with the Mac and the PS110.) 3. Connect the Print Server to the Mac. 4. Install the Printer Driver for the printer you will be using with the PS110 Print Server on your Mac. 5. Open Utilities > Print Center in the MacOS 10.2 Applications folder. The Printer List appears. 6. Click Add. The Printer Selection window appears. 7. From the top of the Printer Selection window, select AppleTalk from the first pull down menu. 8. Select Local AppleTalk Zone from the second pull down menu below. 9. Click the Print Server from the list in the window. PSD90335 ? PostScript Printer in the case of this test. 10. Click the pull down Printer Model, and select the model of printer connected to your Print Server. A list of printers displays. 11. From the scrolling list select the Model Name of the printer connected to your Print Server. 12. Click Add. 13. Printer List displays with the list of printers and print servers connected to your Mac. Select the name of the Print Server from the Printer List. 14. Click Make Default. 15. Close the Printer List. 16. Open a file and try printing it. You can now connect to the RP614 Router Gateway, and to the Internet.
