I have seen some reports of this problem, but I don't know of a definite 'cure", Seems like you've tried the obvious stuff already. My question would be, are you using PCL 5e, or PCL6 driver? The PCL 5e is the most compatible driver, and I know I have had a few strange things happen on different models using the PCL 6. It could just be a glitch in the driver, but I'd try the 5e just the same....that's my 2 cents worth.
For simplicity, you can download it here:

Please rate me if it helps :)

Im not the expert here ... still I would like to comment.

I think your printer should be 192.168. something . something. where the first something is the same as your compluter and the second something is a couple digits higher than your computer.

May I suggest you give Network Magic (a Cisco product) a try. You can work, on your printer through this program though they dont claim to support stand-a-lone printers yet. Download the free evaluation copy and give it a try. Alternatively, you could reattach your printer to a computer and share it with the network

Let me know if trhis works for you

SOURCE: 1022n print config is showing IP as 0.0.0.0 set in

I had the same problem with this printer. I tried cold resets and flashing the firmware on the printer and still came up with an IP of 0.0.0.0 and the printer still set to manual. Here's what worked for me.

When flashing the firmware the first time, I only had the usb connection from the computer to the printer. After a few other attempts, I tried flashing with the usb cable connected AND the network cable connected from the printer to the wall port. After this the configuration page gave me DHCP and a brand new IP Address.

Here is a working link to the firmware for Windows.
So just simply have the network cable connected while flashing the firmware on the printer, hope this helps.

Need to hard reset westell 7500 modem to factory defaults..cust chngd admin password and can't remember what they chngd it to and i need to get into modem


  • Note: Resetting your router to the factory defaults not only changes your router user name and password to the factory default values, but it also deletes all your home network settings. This includes the SSID and network encryption key. After you reset your router to the factory defaults, your home network won't be accessible until you reconfigure your router and all your network devices to use the same SSID and encryption key.
To reset your VersaLink 7500 gateway to the factory settings:

  1. Hold the reset button on the back panel of the VersaLink 7500 gateway for 30 seconds.
    • All your settings will be lost including network encryption information and any SSID information you have entered.
    • The gateway user name and password will revert to the default of Admin as the user name and Password as the password.

  2. Your VersaLink 7500 gateway is now using the default settings for the network configuration. This includes the default SSID and network encryption key. You must re-configure your VersaLink gateway to match your previous settings that were assigned to all other devices on your wireless network. Otherwise, no other network devices will be recognized.

How do i put a password on my internet


Hi,

Welcome to Fixya. If you want to make your connection secure by using a password you need to access the router settings page and change the security type. Follow the instruction below on how to make the connection secure.

- You need to know the ipaddress of your router. You can refer to the manual or check the Default Gateway of your computer (Make sure that you connect the computer to the router using an ethernet cable for you to get the Default Gateway). Click on START then RUN. Type CMD on the small box on the lower left of the screen. Type IPCONFIG on the black window and get the value of your DEFAULT GATEWAY (it starts with 192.168.x.x).

- Open a Browser, Type the DEFAULT GATEWAY or the Ipaddress of the router on the address bar of your Browser. It will ask you for a username and password. For Belkin Router it usually ask for a Password. If it ask you for a username and password just leave it blank

- Click on Encryption, You can select either WEP, WPA or WPA2 to make it secure. Then personalize a password. Then confirm the changes try you wireless machine to connect.

Make sure you connect to your SSID and enter the personalize network key. Network key serves as a password on the network so that no one can access the internet unless they knw the password.

Thanks for using Fixya.

I have the HERMO packard bell model. I can hardly access internet and the sound is not heard. Please hhelp


For internet
Resolution:
First check ipaddress
Click Start -run- type cmd hit enter for XP or Start -search-type cmd hit enter in Vista. On the DOS black screen after the blinking cursor type ipconfig hit enter check the ipaddress if are getting ipaddress other than (169........) it is proper ipaddress for e.g 147.14.48.478
Ping the default gateway e.g ping 147.11.445.478 if you are able to get packets send 4 received 4 loss zero is with Internet explorer or operating system.
If unable to ping or getting 169..... ipaddress . you are having static ip address
On the black screen at the blinking cursor type ipconfig /release hit enter
then type ipconfig /renew hit enter .check ip address
Ping default gateway then ping www.google.com if you are able to get packets send 4 received 4 loss 0. Try connect to internet using internet explorer or other browser. if still unable to connect then issue with firewall or antivirus or IE corruption .
Create new administrative account in XP and do MSconfig .Restart the system and logon to new account and try connecting to internet.
If issue persist might have to repair IE or operating system as it is software issue or virus issue.
You can connect a different computer if you have one and check internet.
If unable to get any ipaddress or still getting static ip address ,reset modem or check ethernet cable ,do a hard reset on the internet modem.Shutdown and restart computer and check ipaddress then try connecting to internet.

NO sound : Check the sound driver .Try reinstalling sound drivers

Laser printer keeps printing hp ads


Hello,
Please perform the following:
If the printer is connected via network, unplug the network cable and perform cold reset.

Cold reset A cold reset changes most system parameters in NVRAM to the factory defaults. However, unlike NVRAM initialization, a cold reset does not reset the page count, the paper tray sizes, language, or formatter number.
A cold reset also resets all the HP Jetdirect settings as well as the printer settings. Use the following procedure to perform a cold reset.
  1. Turn off the printer.
  2. Press and hold the Go button.
  3. Turn the printer on, and continue to hold the Go button for at least 5 seconds, but not longer than 15 seconds. During this process, the Attention LED turns on.
  4. Release the Go button.
    If both the Attention and the Ready LEDs turn on before you release the Go button, you must start the procedure again with step 1.
The printer's LEDs begin cycling. The cold-reset process runs until completion, and the printer returns to the ready state.


Then uninstall / delete the previous drivers and install the drivers from the following link:

Hello,

Your printer is a dn model, which means it is duplex + network. Please unplug the network cable and perform the following:

Cold reset A cold reset changes most system parameters in NVRAM to the factory defaults. However, unlike NVRAM initialization, a cold reset does not reset the page count, the paper tray sizes, language, or formatter number.
A cold reset also resets all the HP Jetdirect settings as well as the printer settings. Use the following procedure to perform a cold reset.

  2. Press and hold the Go button.
  3. Turn the printer on, and continue to hold the Go button for at least 5 seconds, but not longer than 15 seconds. During this process, the Attention LED turns on.
  4. Release the Go button.
    If both the Attention and the Ready LEDs turn on before you release the Go button, you must start the procedure again with step 1.
The printer's LEDs begin cycling. The cold-reset process runs until completion, and the printer returns to the ready state.

Network reset A network reset changes all network system parameters in NVRAM to the factory defaults. During the network-reset process, all button presses are ignored.
Use the following procedure to perform a network reset.
  1. Turn off the printer.
  2. Simultaneously Press and hold the Go and Job Cancel buttons.
  3. Turn on the printer and continue to hold the Go and Job Cancel buttons for approximately 10 seconds, but no longer than 20 seconds. During this process, the Attention light turns on.
  4. Release the Go and Job Cancel buttons. The Attention , Ready , and Go lights begin cycling from front to back. After the network-reset process is complete, the device returns to the ready state.
    If the Attention and Ready lights illuminate before you release the Job Cancel button, start again at step 1.

Now connect the netowrk cable and wait for 5-mins. After that print a configuration page and confirm the IP address.

My brother printer MFC-640CW has stopped taking comand to print documents from my computer, i can copy and scan, but not print . ink pads are full.


Make sure the status and configuration of the print server. Check following:

1 Make sure that the machine is powered on, is on-line and ready to print.

2 Print the Network Configuration List of the machine and check if the settings such as IP address settings
are correct for your network. The problem may be the result of mismatched or duplicate IP address.
Verify that the IP address is correctly loaded into the print server. And make sure that no other nodes on
the network have this IP address.

3 Verify that the print server is on your network as follows:
For Windows®
(1) Try pinging the print server from the host operating system command prompt with the command:
ping ipaddress
Where ipaddress is the print server IP address (note that in some instances it can take up to two
minutes for the print server to load its IP address after setting the IP address).
(2) If a successful response is received, then proceed to Windows® 98/98SE/Me Peer-to-Peer print
(LPR) troubleshooting
. Otherwise, proceed to Step 4.

4 Reset the print server back to the default factory settings and try from the initial setup again. For
information how to reset to the default factory settings, see Restoring the network settings to factory in the manual.

Printer Password


If you reset the network card on the 8008 back to factory defaults it will reset the web password back to 'sysadm'
To reset factory defaults power the pritner on holding down CLEAR, keep CLEAR held down whilst you power the printer ON, keep the clear button held down untill you see RESETT on the display.

Resetting factory defaults will reset all network settings EXCEPT - IP, Sub net and Gateway address
