Hi im josh in cebu phils.please try this
Printers are mechanical devices with lots of moving parts. And any time you have moving parts, you have something that can break or wear out over time.
So when you click the old print button and nothing happens, what are the likely causes?
First, you might have the wrong printer driver installed in Windows. You might have either simply selected the wrong driver for your printer, or Windows might have mistaken your printer for another model, or the driver selected might be out of date. While we're in this area, it's also possible that various aspects of your printer setup might be incorrect, which can cause some highly unusual problems. You should also check your font setup because fonts themselves can cause perplexing problems if they're not installed correctly.
In addition, any new input or output device you've installed since you installed your main printer could have changed your printer's settings. (It's kind of like the last device installed gets dibs on key system settings.) If you've recently added a scanner or a digital camera or fax software or anything like that and then experienced printer problems, try uninstalling your printer (and all printer drivers) and then reinstalling your printer so that your printer is now the last device installed—and thus controls key system settings.
It's also possible that if you're printing large or graphically complex documents, you might not have enough disk space or memory to print. Make sure that you have plenty of both, because Windows needs all the space it can get to complete the printing operation.
Finally, you could have real printer hardware problems. These problems range from the mundane (you're out of paper, you forgot to turn on the printer, a cable came loose) to the fairly serious (your printer is broken!). Check all your cables and connections and make sure that your printer is actually turned on.
The bottom line is there are a lot of things you need to check if you have printer problems, both hardware- and software-related. So if you have printing problems, hunker down and plow through the problems/solutions section, coming up next.
good luck.

Hi, you have to set up your printer as a device that can be communicated in your LAN by the two PCs.

To set up your printer properly in the LAN, you need to assign a fixed IP to this printer such that whenever it is switch on again, both PC still communicate to this printer without changing the new IP assigned to this printer.

You need to set up this fixed IP properly in your DLink router. For guidance please check this in your user manual of the Dlink. Please let me know any problem you may have again in future.

Steps to Configure Static IP Address for Epson Wireless Printer


The IP address is a specific number allocated to a device, which is connected to your PC network. If you require configuring a static IP address for your Epson printer, it can be possible by using the network configuration menu that you can access via the Internet browser on a connected system. To do that, it's necessary to know your printer's existing IP address. If you have a password protected the device, then you must know the username and password credentials to access your Epson printer network configuration menu. You can call at the Epson Printer tech support phone number and get expert's assistance to do that in a proper way.

Find Epson Printer's IP Address

    1.Click the 'Windows Start' button and choose the 'Control Panel' on any system connected to the similar network as your Epson printer.
    2.Double-click the 'Printers and Faxes' option and then find the Epson printer that you want to configure a static IP address for in the printer list.
    3.Right-click on the Epson printer from the list and choose the 'Properties' option.
    4.Click the 'Ports' tab and find the printer to configure a static IP address. Click on the printer to select it.
    5.Click on the vertical bar between Description and Port and shift it to the right to expand the Port column. Find the Epson printer's IP address under the 'Port' column, which is a series of numbers divided by, resembles and periods 192.168.1.2.
    Configure Static IP Address

      1.Open up your favorite Internet browser on the system connected to the similar network connection as your printer for which you need to set up a static IP address.
      2.Input the printer's IP address into your browser address bar. Click the 'Enter' button.
      3.Enter your printer login information. If it's not password-protected, enter 'admin' text into the 'Username' box and leave the password field vacant. Click the 'OK' button, followed by the 'IP Configuration' tab to sign into the Epson wireless printer settings page.
      4.Find the 'IP Address Configuration' or 'TCP/IP' section and adjust the value from 'Auto' to 'Manual' or 'Static.'
      5.Input the static IP address that you need to allocate to the Epson wireless printer into the provided boxes. It forces the network to assign the selected IP address to the Epson printer every time it tries to connect to the computer.
      6.Click the 'Save' button to apply the settings and close the browser.
      Additional Tips:

      Configuring a static IP address for the Epson wireless printer is not a complicated process if you are a tech-savvy user. However, if you can't set static IP address for your printer even after following these steps, you must avail the help and guidance of technicians that can be possible via the Epson technical support phone number. They will assist you step-by-step to configure IP address of your printer in an efficient manner.

I have a hp pavilion dv7-2277cl laptop (64 bit) and a hp laserjet 2605dn. suddenly the communication between the two has gone missing. This is a wireless network and worked until last week. I have down...


The one that is missing in the network is the printer.So try to reconfigure the IP of the printer again using the wireless wizard in the printer manager. Or go to Using the HP Network Diagnostic Utility in Windows - HP Customer Care (United States - English)

Also ; Very seldom does the printer itself cause problems. To determine if you have printer trouble, do the following:
  • If you're using a wireless connection, see if the wireless indicator lamp is illuminated? Can you turn on the wireless radio from the control panel of the printer?
  • Print a Network Configuration page and a Wireless Network Test report from your printer's control panel, if available.
    • Does the Wireless Network Test report indicate trouble?
    • Does the report indicate that the printer is connected to your wireless router, and not to a neighbor's? The network name the printer is connected to will be shown on the both the Network Configuration page and Wireless Network Test report.
    • Compare the printer's IP address [X]
      IP address
      An IP address is a series of numbers by which computers, printers and other devices on a network are known. An IP address is usually issued by the local wireless router (network) from its DHCP service. A device is given an IP address that is similar to the wireless router's IP address. For example, if the wireless router's IP address is 192.168.1.1, a printer may be given an IP address of 192.168.1.5. to the gateway IP address [X]
      Gateway IP address
      This is the IP address of your wireless router. . They should have a similar format (for example, the gateway IP address might be 192.168.0.1 and the printer IP address 192.168.0.5). If the printer has an IP address similar to 169.254.XXX.XXX, it probably is not connected to your wireless network.
    • On some printers, the Network Configuration page will list all wireless networks detected in your area. Is your network listed among those found? Does it have good signal strength?
    • Are there several wireless networks on your same channel or using channels close to your channel? You should use a channel at least 5 channels away from the closest used channel. Consider changing your wireless router's channel to 1, 6 or 11.
  • Are there any error messages on the printer or unexpected blinking lights (consult your manual to determine what to expect)?
  • Reset your printer (usually by removing the power cord from the back of the printer, waiting 30 seconds and then reconnecting the cord. Consult your manual for specifics).
  • Restart your wireless router [X]
    Wireless router
    A wireless router is networking hardware that allows both wired and wireless devices to connect to a network. When connected to a wireless router, devices such as computers, printers, and other Wi-Fi enabled electronics can share one Internet connection AND connect to each other. Connections can be made to the wireless router through a wireless connection or a wired connection using an Ethernet cable. by unplugging the power cord, waiting 60 seconds, then reconnecting the cord to the wireless router.

To install a HP printer (with built-in Jetdirect print server) as a network printer you need to do the following -
1. Open the printer’s menu and enable the Network Card – then configure the IP address of the network card so it matches the IP range of your network. Eg. If your IP's are 192.168.0.xxx then set the network card to a high number say 100 then set the Subnet Mask IP address to 255.255.255.0

If you have a wireless router then check the IP addresses that the router issues to the computers on your network and configure the IP address in the printer accordingly.
2. Install the HP printer driver on your computer/s using the LPT printer port.
3. Connect the printer with a LAN cable to the network hub/router.
4. Click on Printers and Faxes - right click on the HP printer and click on Properties.
5. Click on Ports and click on Add Port.
6. In available ports - click on Standard TCP/IP Port and then Configure port.
7. Tick the IP box and type in the IP address of the HP's printer IP address.
8. Click OK and tick Enable bi-directional support and then OK

Install the HP printer driver on every computer on your network and configure the printer’s TCP/IP port as previously detailed.

Do a test print page to check the printer.
You can now print from any computer on your network.

HP P2015dn wirless connection stopped working


Hi,
There is not wireless netwrok card is HP LJ P2015dn, However as i can understand you r using External Wireless Router or Wireless network or jet-direct card if u r able to work fine on USB than printer printing mechanism is working fine.
If u connect the printer via wired network connection and it keeps on loosing IP address than it may be problem with onboard network card of the printer.
If printer keeps on loosing IP Address than try upgrading the firmware of the printer.
To check the firmware and IP Address of the printer print a configuration page by pressing and holding down green button for 6 to 7 seconds

Network adapter


Hi There!

Hope you are doing well.

As is understand you can not connect to the internet. Here is what you can try. As i can see from what you have written. Your network adapter is fine.

1. I see you are using a wireless router.
If it is configured in DHCP mode ---> Then set your laptop or computer IP configuration in DHCP mode.
If it is configured in NAT Mode ---> Then give a static IP configuration to your computer. depending on your local range e.g IP:192.168.0.30 Subnet:255.255.255.0 Default gateway:192.168.0.1 and also set you Primary and secondary DNS settings.

You could try any of the above setting and after saving the new configuration restart the computer. and reboot(turn off the power supply and turn it back on after 30 sec) the wireless router also.

2. Try Changing your wireless router , install a new one and try your old configuration.

Regards,

Olafsson.
