MOST OF THE TIME AND I MEAN 90% OF THE TIME IT IS THE CABLING AND CONNECTOR ARE THE PROBLEM AND THAT IS EASY TO FIX.

SOFTWARE ISSUES ARE EVEN HARDER TO SOLVE BUT BEFORE I SEND YOU DOWN THAT WAY HERE ARE SOME OPTIONS TO INVESTAGATE BEFORE MAKING ANY TYPE OF SOFTWARE CODE CHAGING. TRY THE FOLLOWING OPTIONS FIRST...............:

1 CHECK EACH COMPUTER BY GOING INTO CONTROL PANEL OPEN FOLDER CALLED NETWORKING AND SHARING CENTER.

2. NIC CARD INSTALLED IN THE COMPUTER AND GO TO DEVICE MANAGER AND TEST THE CARD, UPDATE THE DRIVERS AND MAKE SURE EVERY THING IS WORKING PROPERLY.

3. IF THE NIC CARDS ARE CONSIDERED A PLUG AND PLAY DEVICE YOU CAN GO TO
SYNC CENTER AND IT WILL CHECK EVERYTHING AND TEST THE EQUIPMENT FOR YOU, LIKW WIZERD WOULD DO.

4. GO TO SECURITY CENTER AND MAKE SURE THERE IS NO CONFLICKS WITH ANTI-VIRUS PROGRAMS *****************
ON ALL THE COMPUTERS YOU ARE HAVING NIC ISSUES ONLY************************

5. CONTROL PANEL OPEN UP WINDOWS DEFENDER CHECK FOR ANY TYPE OF MARKS THAT SHOULD NOT BE THERE, YOU ONLY WANT xxxxxxxxxxxxxGREEN -MARKS******* IN THESE IMPORTANT AREAS

6. GO INTO CONTROL PANEL AND OPEN FIREWALL, THE FIREWALL ONLY GREEN IN THIS AREA TOO.
NO YELLOW, ORANGE, RED MARKS.

IF YOU FIND ANY ERRORS CLICK ON THE ERROR AND GO ON LINE IF YOU CAN TO RESOLVE THE ISSUES BECAUSE THEY ARE GOING TO USE EVERY VENDER OUT THERE TO RESOLVE THE ISSUES WITH YOUR SYSTEMS.

7. FIND A KNOWN NIC CARD THAT WORKS AND CHECK EACH COMPUTER AND GET IT TO WORK THAN SET THE CARD UP TO THE SETTING OF THE CARD AS THE SAME AS THE TEST CARD IS SET TO. *********** I KNOW EACH NIC CARD HAS TO HAVE ITS OWN CODE IN ORDER TO WORK PROPERLY,..USE THE HIGH NUMBERS SO YOU WILL NOT HAVE ALOT OF ISSUES AND EERORS WITH YOUR NETWORK.

8. LAST THING CALL IN A NETWORK SPECAILIST OR ADMINSTATOR OF THE NETWORK.

Hello I would like to buy a compatible print server for my hp officejet 4255 all in one, because I want to share it among several pc-desktops connected to a router in wi-fi. Netgear says they do not...


What you want is the HP 2101NW
Unfortunately, this product has been discontinued by HP themselves, but you may be able to find a store that has old stock, or find one on EBAY.
The easier solution is to share it across the network from a workstation that is always on, or make a print server workstation out of an old PC or laptop that will do nothing but share the printer across the network.
You can buy an older PC to use for this function cheaper in many cases than buying a standalone print server. I did this myself for ages using a laptop I picked up for $50. The laptop wasn't good for much more than a print server, but as a print server it worked flawlessly. The laptop would wirelessly connect to the network and was USB wired to the printer, which it shared across the network.
NOTE: you will be limited to PRINT ONLY under these situations.
If I recall correctly, the only way to have full functionality is with the 2101NW which as I said is now discontinued, but was an amazing product in it's day!

The printer (hp laserjet p2015) appears offline


Press and hol the green 'go' button until the lights flash, (about 4-5 seconds) and release the button,

Wait for the config pages to print out, and then check your network configuration, i.p address, Subnet mask and gateway.

If no network page prints out, you might have a dead Network Interface in the printer.

Difficulty: Moderately Easy
Instructions
Things You'll Need: · Wireless print server
· USB printer
· Ethernet cable
· Computer
1. Step 1
Obtain a wireless print server that is compatible with both your wireless network and your printer. While the printer’s documentation may not explicitly say that it is compatible with a print sever, many are compatible, and this can be verified by checking the website of the print server’s manufacturer. If you have a multifunction printer, only the print function will work with most wireless print servers, though a few have recently added support for scanning and the printer’s other functions.
Step 2 Read all of the documentation that came with the wireless print server. The manual will detail the specifics of the installation routine.
Step 3 Connect the printer to the wireless print server via the USB cable. Connect the print server’s Ac adapter and turn the unit on.
Step 4 Connect an Ethernet cable between the wireless print server and your computer. This will be used for the initial setup only.
Step 5 Insert the CD supplied with the print server into your CD-Rom drive. Start the software if it does not start automatically. The application will walk you through the installation process, which includes setting the unit’s IP address, setting an access password, configuring it to connect to the wireless network, installing the drivers that allow the print server to use the printer and installing the print drivers on your computers.
Step 6 Choose how your print server will be addressed. Most units are set up to use dynamic addressing by default, which means that your wireless router will assign an IP address to it. This allows the server to be easily installed on the network, but it also means that the IP address of the printer may change over time. The other option is to assign a static IP address to your print server. This option is more reliable, because the print server will always use the same IP address, making it easier for the computers to find the printer and easier to access the print server’s online configuration application. If your router has the IP address of 192.168.0.1, for instance, set the print server to something like 192.168.0.2 or 192.168.0.3, as long as another device does not use that address.
Step 7
Set a password to be used to access the unit’s online configuration application.
Step 8 Configure the print server to access your wireless network. Give it the same SSID network name as your router and set it to use the same wireless channel. If encryption is used on the router, enable encryption on the print server, and enter the encryption key or password.
Step 9 Follow the instructions given by the print server’s software for installing printer drivers on the unit.
Step 10
Disconnect the Ethernet cable and allow the unit to connect via the wireless network.
Step 11 Install the printing drivers on each computer that will use the printer.
Step 12 Access the print server’s online configuration application to verify all settings by entering the IP address of the unit into a web browser, using the “http://192.168.0.2” format. Enter the administrator name and password.
Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

Can HP 1410 printer support LAN.


HP 1410 is not a network printer. If you want network printing, you must purchase a printer that features network printing.

You can designate a pc to act as network server and plug printer into that server, and then print from another computer on the same network

Cannot print on shared printer


I had the same problem with HP 1018 printer, when I had two computers connected to a domain and had Windows XP SP3 on them and when I shared the printer on one of them - I could only print from the network if the user belonged to the Local Administrators group on the host/server computer. Once the network user is removed from Administrators - the print jobs are stuck in print queue. I used the "HP LaserJet Host Based Print Driver Package" that is on HP web site for HP laserjet 1018 printer.
Then I tried to use a different driver for that printer and was successful with driver for HP LaserJet 1020. After forcing that printer to use the 1020 drivers, the regular users were able to print to that printer.

What brand of print server would be compatible with a linksys broadband router and the HP printer?


You asked for any advice. If you want to use a server, you must already have at least a home network set up (it could be wireless or hard-wired). Yes, stand-alone "print servers" are notorious for only supporting certain printers. If you don't know this before you buy, you may find yourself returning your print server to the store. However, instead of a standalone print server, have you considered setting up one of the computers in your network as a "print server"? That's the way it used to be done. That's the way my own network is set up. You would set up your multifunction printer as connected directly to one of the computers in your network. Enable "printer sharing" on that computer. Then do the following on all other computers in the network for which you desire access to the printer: Add a network printer. If asked for drivers, get them off the printer's installation CD.
