Re: Setting IP Address

Really need a bit more information, like operating system for a start, but here goes: I am guessing that your subnet mask is different from your printers. What address that you set are you getting from the printer? On your PC, what is your IP and subnetmask set to?

Jetdirect ex default ip

Usually it it set to pick up IP from DHCP/BootP.
If someone had assigned a fixed IP and it is now unknown. It is better to reset the print server to factory default by pushing the little reset button,
Then check you DHCP server for the newly assigned IP address.

You will need a version of HP Jetadmin or HP webjetadmin to configure this print server

Change ip address on extendnet mpx

There should be a software program that allows you to change the IP Address that came with the unit. If you don't have that, you would need to reset the unit to factory defaults (which may not be possible without the software) set the device in the same subnet as your DNS router, change the BOOTP/DHCP table with the MAC Address and new IP Address.

You can reset the router to factory default settings, press the reset button at the back of the router.

Please note that after RESETTING THE ROUTER to defaults, ALL SETTINGS WILL BE LOST AND YOU HAVE TO RECONFIGURE IT. Generally, after hard reset you get the connectivity, however, you have to make the connection secure etc.
Reset the router to factory default setting, press and hold the reset button for few seconds (It is at the back of the router near the DC Power Jack). The LEDs will then blink and the routers factory settings would be restored. Please note that, after resetting the router you should be able to see the router and connect to it via LAN Cable or Wirelessly as the router automatic assigns the IP Address and gateway etc. Before proceeding to the next step please make sure that you are getting the signals as well as internet. However, the internet connection would not be secure, which can be done later.

Now, all you have to do is connect to the router and secure the connection follow the following steps: -
First you have to access the router through web browser (Internet Explorer) by typing the IP address of your router in the address bar, which is (Default router settings are written under the router)
(unless you've configured otherwise, the default username is admin and the password "leave it blank") and lookup for the options to do the following: -
1. Change the SSID (Name) of the router
2. Change the default administrative user name and password
(The above step would prevent unauthorized access to your router)

Next step is to secure it:
1.On the left-hand side, under Setup, click "Wireless Setup" 2.Under "Wireless Security Mode", select your desired encryption method (preferably WPA2-PSK)
3.Choose a Network Key - it can be anything, as long as it's 8-63 characters in length
4. Click Save Settings.
Now your router and your connection would become secure and the user has to provide the network key to access the internet.

Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.
Hope it helps! Good Luck!
Don't forget to convey your feedback and approciate the efforts.

I have Windows XP Pro, SP2, Office 2007, and an HP Photosmart C7280 off a wireless router. Printer scans OK but 9 times out of ten it can't see the PC. DHCP is "on" but printer IP address is sometimes Auto...

The problem is you want to have the printer on a fixed IP address. This can be done by reserving the IP for the mac address of the printer in the router OR simpler just set the IP address in the printer.

Change IP settings
The default setting for the IP settings is Automatic, which sets the IP settings
automatically. However, if you are an advanced user, you might want to manually change
the IP address, subnet mask, or the default gateway. To see the IP address and subnet
mask of the HP All-in-One, print a network configuration page from the HP All-in-One.
NOTE: When manually entering an IP Setting, you must already be connected to an
active Network, otherwise the setting will not stay when you exit from the menu.
CAUTION: Be careful when manually assigning an IP address. If you enter an invalid
IP address during the installation, your network components will not be able to connect
with the HP All-in-One.
To change IP settings
1. Press Setup.
2. Press until Network is highlighted, then press OK.
The Network menu appears.
3. Press until Advanced Setup is highlighted, and then press OK.
4. Press until IP Settings is highlighted, and then press OK.
If the HP All-in-One is already connected to a wired network, you are prompted to
confirm that you want to change the IP settings. Press OK.
5. Press until Manual is highlighted, and then press OK.
6. Press to highlight one of the following IP settings, and then press OK.
• IP Address
• Subnet Mask
• Default Gateway
7. Enter your changes, and then press OK to confirm the setting.

Unable to connect

On the back side of the adapter there is a small button. If you depress if for a very long time, it resets the adapter back to factory defaults. If you depress it for a shor period of time, it will print a settings page. On this settings page, look for the IP address. If the print out has, then it does not have a valid IP address. If it has, it does not have a good address. If it has an address, it has a good address. Once you are able to verify the address it has, then you can check on the computer and compare them. If the address don't match, then there will be no communication between the printer and the computer. The way to check this click start>Printers and Faxes>Right click Printer Icon>Click Properties>Choose Ports tab>scroll thur this list until you see which port the printer is using>If it does not show the IP address in this window>Highlight this port>click configure>The port will show in this windows box.

Another reason it may not join the network is because of incorrect security settings from the orginal set up of the adapter. Another reason why it may not join the network is because of fire wall settings. One way to test the fire wall settings is to temporaryily disable firewall and see if it joins. If it does, then you know you need to make some firewall setting changes.

Windows defender and Spybot are known to block certain files needed by dell printers in order to operate/print correctly.

NetPrint 1000

Hello everyone,

I've spent the past several hours getting my NetPrint print servers to work on my network & print from Windows XP.

Guess what? I've got the solution.

I have both the NetPrint 50 model and the NetPrint 1000 model. I only got the NetPrint 50 to work. I think my NetPrint 1000 may be shot. Also realize that there were a number of company acquisitions (DPI / Digital Product Inc., Osicom, Sorrento), so there is little to no information left on the Internet regarding these print servers.

Here is what you need to know:

1.) Take the cover off the print server. On the left and right sides there is a little tab that holds the case together. Get a flat-head screwdriver and apply it to either the left or right side along the seam.
2.) Jumper pins. On the NetPrint 50 you want: Auto; 10BaseT. On the NetPrint 1000 you want: 10BaseT; Auto; Tx; Factory (Jumper 10). Remember, I couldn't get my NetPrint 1000 working.
3.) IP Address. The NetPrint print servers use BOOTP to obtain an IP address. Realize - this is an older version of DHCP, but NOT the same thing as DHCP. Some DHCP servers are backwards compatible and support BOOTP. Fat chance, though. My wireless router only has a DHCP server. So, obtaining an IP address automatically is likely far too difficult / impossible. What you will need to do is assign an IP address to the unit. We cannot use DHCP to do this, and we cannot remotely access the unit (web server / Port 80 is not listening on my units). To assign an IP address to your unit, open up a DOS / CMD prompt (Start->Run; type: "cmd" and hit OK). We will be using the ARP command, which stands for Address Resolution Protocol. This is the protocol that translates between IP addresses and MAC addresses.
a.) Select an IP address you want to assign to the unit
b.) Ok, now look at the bottom of your unit and find the MAC address; it begins with two zeros.

Now enter this command:

arp -s 00-40-AF-18-61-40

replace with the IP address you want to assign to the unit. Replace 00-40-AF-18-61-40 with the MAC address found on the bottom of our unit.

What we just did was tell your computer that anytime we send data to that IP address, it will actually send it to that MAC address, which is your unit. Ok, good job.

Now type: arp -a
and you should see and verify your entry. If you made a mistake, type: arp -d to remove your entry.

Now, your NetPrint print server has no idea it's just been assigned an address. And it won't know to respond to that IP address unless we make it listen on that IP address. This is easy to do. All you have to do is ping the unit. Don't worry if the unit does not reply to your pings. Simply pinging it will make it realize it needs to listen on that IP address. So, type this command:


Done. It's now listening on the IP address you just assigned it.

4.) Setup Printer in Windows XP. Ok, go to Control Panel -> Printers and Faxes. Add a Printer, select a Local Printer (uncheck plug-and-play). When it asks you to select a Printer Port (it will default to LPT1)... select Create New Port -> Standard TCP/IP Port. Hit Next. Now it will ask you for the Printer IP Address and Port Name: Enter the IP address you just assigned to your unit; the Port Name can be anything you want... this is just a string that uniquely identifies this printer port on your computer and it has nothing to do with the printer or print server itself (I used "RyansNetPrint"). If it asks you for what type of Network card, just select Generic. Select the Printer driver for the printer you have hooked up to your NetPrint print server.

5.) Setup LPR & Queue Name. We need to reconfigure this for it to work. Ok, Now under Control Panel->Printers and Faxes - right-click on your newly created printer and hit Properties. Click on the Ports tab. Highlight your newly created printer port (ie, RyansNetPrint) and the Configure Port button. Windows defaults the Protocol to RAW. This won't work on your NetPrint print servers. You need to select LPR. Now, the one last thing you need to do is enter the proper Queue Name. The Queue Name format is: "PORTn" Where n is the Port Number (probably 1 or 2) on your NetPrint print server where you connected your printer cable. My NetPrint 50 only has one port, so my Queue Name is "PORT1". This is where I found the Queue Name information: "". Realize - I couldn't get my NetPrint 1000 to work properly. I think it uses different Queue Names. For instance, I tried "PORT10001", "10001", etc... to no avail. I gave up and used my NetPrint 50 since it worked easily with the instructions I just gave you.

Now hit OK, click on the General tab, and click Print Test Page. Walaa!

Hope this helps you. Took me a long time to figure all this out.


PS. the arp -s command is only peformed on your local computer. When you ping your unit. When you reboot yoru computer, the arp -s record your created will disappear. So, they key here is - my wireless router remembers what IP address goes to what MAC address (because I pinged it). Now, if my wireless router is powered off - it forgets that information. So - if you reboot your wireless router / network router / switch / hub... you will need to reenter the arp -s command and ping your NetPrint print server again to assign the IP address again. Not perfect, but it works.

DPR-1260 ... prints but cannot access web config page

To get into the web configuration you need to know your firmware on the DPR-1260. If it is 1.12, us http://dlinkps-xxxxxx where the X's are the last 6 number of the mac address. If it is 1.20 and up, use http://dlink-xxxxxx, where the x's are the last 6 number of the mac address. If you do set it up as DHCP or static and know the ip address of the print server just type in the ip address of the print server on the address bar.

Cannot find print server at all

How this works: Restoring the PocketPrintServer to Factory Defaults In most cases, the best way to restore the PocketPrintServer to factory defaults is through "telnet". However, if you are unable to connect to the device because of a configuration error, use the following method which does not require a network connection. To restore the PocketPrintServer to factory defaults, complete the following steps: 1. Disconnect the PocketPrintServer from the network and power cycle it. When it powers up, the LED will rapidly blink orange for five seconds. 2. Power down the device during the rapid orange blink period. Power up the device and power it down during that orange blink period two more times. 3. Reconnect the network cable and power up the PocketPrintServer. It will have restored itself to factory defaults and will rapidly blink green as it searches for a RARP or BOOTP server to find an IP address. Gleaning If an IP address has not been permanently assigned when the PocketPrintServer is powered on or reset, it will look for a "ping" packet on the network. If the PocketPrintServer receives a "ping" packet within two minutes, it will accept the IP address in the "ping" packet as its own address. To use Gleaning, you must have super-user privileges on a UNIX system. Gleaning also works under Windows 95 and Windows NT. 1. Add an entry in the ARP table that assigns an IP address to the Ethernet address of the PocketPrintServer. To do this, use the "arp" command. arp -s temp Example: arp -s 00:02:16:00:00:01 temp 2. Start a continuous "ping" to the PocketPrintServer. ping Example: ping On some systems, this may require an additional parameter. Some implementations of "ping" only send out one "ping" packet which could get lost in transit. Check your system documentation for more information. 3. Connect power to the PocketPrintServer. The PocketPrintServer will "glean" its IP address from the "ping" packet. This IP address will remain in effect until the PocketPrintServer is power cycled or reset. Therefore, a permanent IP address should be assigned by running the ExtendView TCP/IP utility or via "telnet".
