Re: Error #57 unable to connect DHCP Svr

Sometimes you can unplug the printer for approximately 20 to 30 minutes to allow the memory to clear and everything should go back to normal. If not try the next steps I have given you. Error 57 is a main motor error. Remove the toner cartridge and see if the error goes away. If not then remove the fuser in the back with the power off. Lower back cover and remove two screws and slide out carefully. Turn the gear on the fuser to see if the rollers turn. If it is binded then the fuser is the issue and needs to be replaced. Check the gears on the right side to make sure nothing has fallen in and stops them from turning. If all ok, then the main motor needs to be replaced.

Change ip address

The IP address is configured through your DHCP server in your router. You're going to have to either look in your router for connected devices or use a tool like netscan.exe (free) to find the assigned IPs in your network, If you don't have too many connected devices, you can keep putting the IPs that are there into your web browser until the device page comes up. They SHOULD HAVE put a reset button on this thing, but they didn't.

I am trying to install a wpsm54g v1.1 print server. All goes well until step 14 and I get a "Connect Fail" error message. Both my husband and I have tried this several times and we keep getting the error...

try this, you need to turn OFF DHCP, START>>RUN>>services,msc press enter. Now scroll down until you see DHCP, Disable it, and set to OFF & Stop it, reboot. You see ths Printer will hand out address, at the moment BOTH are, and they are getting mixed up. Also ensure you are doing everything as Administrator.

HP Jetdirect and Embedded Jetdirect Inside Print Servers - TCP/IP, Messages on Configuration Page or Self-Test Page

Get the IP address subnet and gateway address of a computer in the same network.

Usingthe LJ5's control panel, setup a static IP for the Jet Direct using thenumbers you got from the Laptop, except change the last number of theIP to one that is not being currently being used. Perhaps adding 5 or10 to the highest number in use.
Here are the steps to configure the LJ5.

1.Press MENU, repeatedly, until the following message appears on thecontrol panel: HP LaserJet 5/5n/5m and the original Color LaserJet: HPMIO MENU
2. Press ITEM. CFG NETWORK=NO* will appear.
3. Press the PLUS button once. CFG NETWORK=YES* will appear.
4. Press ENTER or SELECT.
5. Press ITEM repeatedly until CFG TCP/IP=NO* appears.
6. Press the PLUS button. CFG TCP/IP=YES* will appear.
7. Press ENTER or SELECT.
8. Press ITEM until BOOTP=YES* appears.
9. Press the PLUS button. BOOTP=NO will appear.
o When using BootP or DHCP, keep the setting BOOTP=YES*.
o The BootP or DHCP server will configure the TCP/IP parameters on the HP Jetdirect.
o No other TCP/IP configuring is necessary.
10. Press ENTER or SELECT.
11. Press ITEM. IP BYTE 1 = (value) will appear.
12.Press the PLUS button until the value of the first byte of the IPaddress appears on the control-panel display. By pressing SHIFT and thePLUS button, the value will decrease.
13. Press ENTER or SELECT.
14. Press ITEM to continue. Repeat Steps 11-13 to configure the remaining bytes of the IP address.
15.Repeat Steps 11-13 to configure the subnet mask bytes (SM BYTE 1=),syslog server IP address (LG BYTE 1=), default gateway (GW BYTE 1=),and timeout (TIMEOUT=).
16. Press ONLINE. Print a self-test page to verify the IP settings.
17. If the test page does not show the correct settings, power cycle the printer and reprint the test page.

How do I connect with my WGPS606 if there is no setup cd and the default ip does not work? My router has encryption and the WGPS needs the info.

you need to set your print server for dhcp, you need to log in and verify the settings OR just set it back to default because dhcp is default. gl

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.

Need to install network printer to DLink Router

It has been a few months, so you probably have resolved this -- but just in case someone else is looking to find out the IP address on the internal print server of an HP Laserjet 4000n printer so they can set it up on their network, here are the steps to find the IP address on the HP JetDirect internal print server:

1. Have the Ethernet cable plugged in to the router and the JetDirect 600n card and power it on.
2. Make sure display screen on printer says "Ready".
3. Press the Menu button on the printer until you see Information Menu.
4, Press the Item button on the right (+) side until you see Print Configuration page.
5. Press the Select button and a configuration page should print.

One page is the printer's configuration and the other page is the print server configuration page. If you have a good JetDirect card, and good connection to your router, the IP address of the printer, plus its subnet mask and default gateway should be shown on the EIO configuration page.

If the printer has been manually set with a static IP address, subnet mask and default gateway that will not work on your network, you will see the settings will indicate "Configured by" User Specified.

To clear those settings and allow DHCP setting, perform a cold reset on the JetDirect card, by powering off the printer, holding down the green "Go" button and powering it back on until you see "COLD RESET," let go of the green Go button, wait a couple of minutes, then run another configuration page to see the freshly assigned DHCP address of the print server.

Hope this helps someone.

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.

Emulex NetQue Pro2 Print Server how do I connect to it

Your DHCP server will keep track of which MAC Addresses have been given what IP addresses. From there, find the IP address of your Print Server. Ping the IP address to confirm IP connectivity between your computer and the print server. You should then be able to upgrade the firmware.
