Im not a wis but I can try to help. I don't know how you have it hooked up in your network but if its hooked to the router, the router could be send a check to the port and the print may be responding to it by turning on. I leave my printer on all the time, I just set it to go to standby mode a few minutes after the last print.

Hope this helps.

- You may need to range the IP Address of your Network Printer accordingly to the IP Address that is being broadcast by your router.

Turning sharing on or off

The first time you connect to a network, you'll be asked if you want to turn on sharing between PCs and connect to network devices such as printers. Your answer automatically sets the appropriate firewall and security settings for the type of network that you connected to. You can turn sharing on or off at any time.

To turn sharing on or off

  1. hh_ppeic.pngTap or click to view available networks.

  2. Press and hold or right-click the network you're connected to, then tap or click Turn sharing on or off.

  3. Do one of the following:

    • Choose Yes, turn on sharing and connect to devices for home or small office networks, or when you know and trust the people and devices on the network. This setting allows your PC to connect to devices on the network, such as printers.

    • Choose No, don't turn on sharing or connect to devices for networks in public places (such as coffee shops or airports), or when you don't know or trust the people and devices on the network.

      Notes

      • Turning sharing on prepares your PC for sharing files and devices on a network. For more information about sharing with other people on your network, see Sharing files and folders on a network or a shared PC.

      • The network sharing setting is only available for WiFi, Ethernet, VPN (non-domain) and dial-up (non-domain) connections. It's unavailable for domain networks. On VPN or dial-up connections, you must connect to the network first, then press and hold or right-click the network name to change the network sharing setting.

      • Turning on sharing changes your firewall settings to allow some communication, which can be a security risk. If you know you won't need to share files or printers, the safest choice is No, don't share or connect to devices.

      • Choosing No, don't turn on sharing or connect to devices blocks the following applications and services from working: PlayTo, file sharing, network discovery and automatic setup of network devices.

About network discovery

Network discovery is a setting that affects whether your computer can see (find) other computers and devices on the network and whether other computers on the network can see your computer. It's one of several settings that are turned on when you turn on network sharing. You can turn network discovery on or off independently of network sharing, but we discourage this. Here's why. If you're connected to a network in a public location and you decide to turn on network discovery but leave network sharing turned off, the network discovery setting will be on for every public network you connect to from then on. This wouldn't be safe. That's why we recommend using the network sharing setting instead.

However, if for some reason you need to turn network discovery on or off independently of the network sharing setting, here's how to do it:

  1. hh_ppeic.pngTap or click to open Advanced sharing settings.

  2. Tap or click the chevron 7d2e0f87-bcfb-44a3-8422-5c9353bcde11_89.jpg to expand your current network profile.
  3. Tap or click Turn on network discovery or Turn off network discovery, then click Save changes. 1f9463c2-c968-47bf-9b4d-939c5d1af477_70.jpg You might be asked for an admin password or to confirm your choice.

I took my printer home from my workplace and i want to use it at home it is telling me it is offline it is adcp 585cw wireless


Hi,

You have to check whether your printer was set up as a network printer or just a one to one printer in your workplace.

If it is a network printer, please check with your IT administrator whether it was set up with a fixed IP or using dynamic IP. After get these details, just set it up same as in your home network.

I cant hook my Lexmark X3550 to a wireless network. How do I do this?


You will need a print server to do this. Many stand-alone USB print servers do not support the bi-directional communication needed for the scanner of an all-in-one. (Check the specs if you are using one of these.)

A better option would be to connect the printer via USB to one computer and then share it across the network. A Windows 7 Home Group for example would be a simple way to set the feature. You may need to set the firewall to Trust the other machines in the network.

Set up the printer on the first computer as you normally would. Get the software from http://www1.lexmark.com/products/view/All-in-Ones/Lexmark-X3550/catId=cat10004-category&prodId=3924-product;jsessionid=51301F9D038596164B244112F2F14143.node4 if needed; click on Download Drivers. Then install the software on the first computer and then connect the USB cable. Set the printer to be shared (Start > Devices and Printers and right click on the printer. Find Printer Properties and the Sharing Tab.)

Make sure that the Home Group is set up and all the computers have joined the Home Group if using that feature. For other Windows computers on the network, get the software and then add the printer as a network printer from the Devices and Printers Add a Printer Wizard. If the printer doesn't show up, check the firewall and sharing.

I hope this helps.

Cindy Wells
(I have never connected an all-in-one over a Home Group. I do not know if the scanner works in that case.)

How do I set it up for wireless


Install a printer on a home network The most common way to install a printer on a home network is to install it as a stand-alone device on the network, and then add a connection to the printer on each computer that is on the network.
If you're not sure what type of network printer to install, decide if you want to:
  • Use a wireless printer. These printers use a built-in wireless card and plug into a power source, not your network or computer. After you turn on the printer, you need to refer to the information that came with the printer to set up a wireless connection to each computer on a home network. Security options for wireless printing are determined by each printer manufacturer.
  • Connect a printer directly to the network. To do this, you need to plug in the printer to your network hub or router. How to install these printers depends on whether the printer and your network device use an Ethernet, universal serial bus (USB), or another type of connection. You also need to refer to any installation information or tools provided by the printer manufacturer.
  • Connect more than one printer directly to the network. To do this, your hub or router must be able to support more than one printer connection.

  1. Open Printers by clicking the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33.png, clicking Control Panel, clicking Hardware and Sound, and then clicking Printers.
  2. On the toolbar, click Add a printer.
  3. In the Add Printer Wizard, select Add a network, wireless or Bluetooth printer, and then follow the steps in the wizard.

I am trying to access an HP 1200 psc over a home network


Have you set up the printer to be shared via the network? You can usually set this up in printer options, through control panel. If the wifi is a closed network, so much the better. That way, nobody else can use the printer. You should be able to do this easily, as long as both computers are connected to the wireless network.

Laptops not connecting to the internet when the hp c4599 is on


Perhaps the printer is conflicting with the laptop by taking its "address" on the network...Do you know how to give your printer a diifferent IP address? Or your laptop? Its a bit complicated to explain but if you can make sure the laptops and the printer are all set to use "DHCP" then they should all each get an adress on your home network and work together.

In Windows Vista, click Start, Control Panel, Network & Internet, View Network Status and Tasks. Then view the status of your Wireless Network Connection and click details, if it says "DHCP Enabled" in there then your laptops are not the problem and should be sharing addresses.

You should be able to see in the printers control panel or by printing a self test page how its setup on the network, maybe it needs to be reconfigured while the laptops are turned on as well.

Epson Stylus CX9400 driver settings


Not sure how you're removing the driver, but if you go to control panel device manager remove the printer totally as an option; reboot and then reload the printer. You also need to identify the remote printer in the print sequence or as your default printer in set-up (device manager). Hope this helps.
