Question about HP DesignJet 750c plus InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Ethernet port-DHCP I cant figure out how to set the ethernet card to DHCP. I can only get the printer to work with a parallel cable. Even setting it to a static IP would be better than the parallel.

Friend,

First print a test page to determine the firmware version of the JetDirect card. If it's lower than A.05.05 it should be upgraded, first to A.05.05 (important!) and then to the latest version. Failing to do the "in-between" upgrade will render the JD card broken.

NOTE: If there's any doubt at all on how to do the JD firmware upgrade, contact your local HP support for help!

But after the upgrade you should be able to set the IP address (either fixed or DHCP) on the printer via the printer's control panel, if unsure your local HP Support should be able to help you. Then you need a HP Standard Port Monitor (can be found on HERE:) to get the best access to your printer. You don't need a new driver, ust install the HP Standard Port Monitor, go to the existing driver and create a new HP Standard TCP/IP port with the correct IP address.

Cannot ping ipf610


Many things could be the cause...

1st: Is the port you are plugging your Ethernet cable into live?
2nd: Is the Ethernet cable you are using a known good cable?
3rd: Do you have the IP address set in the right range of your network? If not sure of this it is best to first set it to DHCP and let the printer grab the proper scheme then go back and set the machine to static using the scheme that it pulled in DHCP.

Ethernet works with one router but wont work with any newer routers


Make sure the NIC card is set to DHCP. ipconfig /all will tell you if DHCP is enabled.


Go to Start > Search (Run in XP) and type cmd ENTER. In the command prompt type ipconfig /release ENTER. Then type ipconfig /renew ENTER. This just refreshes your IP. Test it.

It is located in TCP/IP Properties.

My dell computer suddenly is not connecting to the internet and is showing "network cable unplugged" error


  1. start the troubleshooting process by making sure that everything (routers,switches, hubs, modems, and computers) is firmlyplugged in.
  2. If your computer is on and the other end of the Ethernet cable isconnected to a network device, the link or activity LED should light.If the light remains dark after you plug in the cable, replace thecable. If replacing the cable gives the same result (no green light), then go to the next step.
  3. Once you’ve eliminated cabling as a source of the problem, it’s time tolook to your computer. Start by making sure that your computer is able toaccess your Ethernet card. A good tool for doing this, and subsequentnetwork troubleshooting, is the command prompt.
  4. Select Start, All Programs, Accessories, and then Command Prompt. When the Command Prompt window opens, type ipconfig –alland press ENTER. Various lines of information will display, dependingon how your system is configured. Look for a section labeled EthernetAdapter Local Area Connection. This section should include a linelabeled Description, which should be a description of your Ethernetcard. If you see it, then your computer knows about your Ethernet cardand has successfully loaded the necessary drivers. If the Descriptionline is blank or missing, you will need to reinstall the drivers foryour Ethernet card.
  5. Your Ethernet card doesn’t detect a connection to the Ethernet cable. Open a command prompt, type ipconfig –all,and press ENTER. If the section that starts with Ethernet adapter LocalArea Connection contains a line labeled Media, with a status of MediaDisconnected, then your computer is unable to detect that a link hasbeen made from your Ethernet card through the Ethernet cable to anothernetwork device, such as your computer or router. Recheck the cabling.Use a known good cable to connect your computer to a known good networkdevice and then perform the check again. If the status is still MediaDisconnected, and you are sure that the cable and the network devicethe cable connects to are good, then you may have a bad Ethernet card.Reinstall the Ethernet card. If the problem continues, you may need toreplace the card.
  6. Other things to check:
  7. Bad connection, bad cable, or wrong cable. The ports on arouter, hub, switch, wireless access point, and print server can, likeany other device, go bad. However, the most common problem is not a badport but a bad or loose connection, a bad Ethernet cable, or the wrongtype of cable. Refer to the Cabling section above, to eliminate thesepossibilities.
  8. Wrong port. One possible cause of Ethernet port problems isusing the wrong port on a network device. For example, routers have WAN(wide-area network) and LAN ports. These ports accept the same Ethernetcabling but are not interchangeable. The same is true of hubs andswitches that have uplink ports, which are specially wired LAN portsthat allow easy cascading of multiple hubs and switches. In some cases,the uplink port is also a normal LAN port controlled by a switch on thedevice. If you’re using the uplink port as a normal LAN port, make surethe device is configured properly for this type of use.

    If aport doesn’t appear to be working, you can use the link light toconfirm it. Port link lights should always be lit when a good cable isconnected between the port and another working network device. If youuse known good cable and a known good network device to test the portbut the link light isn’t lit, you may have a bad port. You can eitherreplace the network device, or in the case of a hub/switch, add a hubor switch to gain more LAN ports.
  9. You cannot connect to other computers or router/Internet. Whenother computers in your LAN can connect to each other, as well as tothe Internet or other services, and your computer cannot, this may bean indication that your computer did not receive an IP (InternetProtocol) assignment when you booted.
  10. Open a command prompt, type ipconfig –all, and press ENTER. Inthe section labeled Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection, look forthe line labeled IP. If it starts with 169, you have a self-assignedIP, which indicates that your computer was not able to acquire an IPassignment from the DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) server.

    Test your access to the DHCP server by using the ping command. Open a command prompt and type pingfollowed by the IP address of the DHCP server. Your DHCP server isprobably the same as your router. For example, if your router’s IP is192.168.1.1, then type ping 192.168.1.1 and press ENTER. Youshould see four lines of text, starting with Reply From 192.168.1.1:Bytes 32, followed by time values that indicate how much time elapsedbetween the ping command and the router’s response. If you see fourlines that say Request Timed Out, then your computer cannot reach yourrouter/DHCP server.

    Make sure the router is plugged in,turned on, and properly configured to provide DHCP services.
These are just a few things to try to help figure out if it is your cable, ethernet card, router, or some other problem.

I have just purchased a 4650EN Magicolor printer Aand want to know how to set it to work on a home network


Does the printer have an ethernet port? If so, just cable it into the network hub / switch. If you use a private network, and the printer was previously used, in a private or public network, then you will likely have to reset the static IP address of the printer. If the printer is new, then it may get an IP address from your DHCP Server. At some point, I recommend you give the printer a static IP address within your IP range, but outside the normal assignment range of the DHCP server to prevent conflicts.

If not, you can connect it via a parallel port to one of the computer systems currently on the network, and then set it as a shared device.

An 8400 prints with a USB or a cat 5 cable ( ethernet, regular internet cable). You can not print to a Phaser 8400 with a parallel cable. I really can't figure why you would get that message.You enter the network settgings and set an IP address, then configure your print driver to match.
There is no parallel port on a 8400.

Dell 3000cn Network Connection not working


First of, the ethernet must be 'on'. If dhcp available, set it to auto (or dhcp.. anyways..) and let it reboot, just in case :)
if not, try setting the IP-setting yourself. They should be somewhat similar to the settings on your local computer(s).

To add the printer to your computer, select 'Local' printer and specify 'tcp/ip' as which port its connected to. In the new window the ip to the printer should be entered. :) (at least for XP this is..)

Hope this gave you the correct solution..
