Make sure you set the printer's IP address to a valid private IP address in the same range as that of your home router, and be sure you can ping it from your PC; you can check if the IP is saved, it is usually shown on the LCD.

SOURCE: HP LaserJet P2015n Printer IP adress

To Me it looks like your printer is set to automatically select an available IP address. If there is no IP available you get the 0:0:0:0 You need a static IP set up for the printer, this will make sure that no one can use the IP. If this is a company printer, get IT to set it up for you. If its your home network you can set this by yourself by either connecting your printer via usb and using the software from HP or if you have an IP you can log into your PC by entering the IP address in the address bar of your browser. You should get the HP page up for your printer. Set the IP from there in the networking section. I hope this helps a little

SOURCE: Does HP LJ 3055 printer scan over the wireless network?

Scan over wireless network is not supported with this printer. You can try set it up and get scanner to work with usb and then change port from usb to HP standard TCP/IP for the device, but I don't think it will work.

SOURCE: print from nokia E63 through WIFI

Try connecting your printer directly to the wifi router/switch in a shared network configuration. Then go to your router settings, find the local ip address add this as the 'host'. Your settings should be as follows:


Driver : HP Mobile Printing
Bearer: Socket/HP Jetdirect
Access Piont: My Home Wifi (kaba)
Host : ip address of you printer
user : Blank ( tried my windows username,no use)
port : 9100
Printer Model: Officejet Printers

You will have to reconfigure your drivers on your pc as well. Mine installed as a wireless shared printer even though the printer is not wireless but I have it connected to my wifi switch for sharing and it worked fine.

Good luck

Wired connection ps3 cant obtain ip address


If your home or office printer is part of a network, meaning it is connected to a networked computer or router, then it will have a TCP/IP address identifying it on the network. This address can be used to share the printer with new users on the network, or to get ink and paper levels on your computer. This address can be found whether using a simple printer, or a printer/scanner combo machine such as the HP Officejet 5610, which will be used as an example here. * Click your PC's "Start" button and choose "Control Panel."
* Choose "Printers and Faxes." Left-click "HP Officejet 5610" and choose "Properties."
* Click "Ports" then drag the divider between the first and second columns to the right to display further information about your printer, including the TCP/IP address.
* Open the "Applications" menu and choose "System Preferences."
* Click "Printers."
* Choose "HP Officejet 5610" and click "Options and Supplies." All network information for the printer will be displayed.

I have a hp pavilion dv7-2277cl laptop (64 bit) and a hp laserjet 2605dn. suddenly the communication between the two has gone missing. This is a wireless network and worked until last week. I have down...


The one that is missing in the network is the printer.So try to reconfigure the IP of the printer again using the wireless wizard in the printer manager. Or go to Using the HP Network Diagnostic Utility in Windows - HP Customer Care (United States - English)

Also ; Very seldom does the printer itself cause problems. To determine if you have printer trouble, do the following:
  • If you're using a wireless connection, see if the wireless indicator lamp is illuminated? Can you turn on the wireless radio from the control panel of the printer?
  • Print a Network Configuration page and a Wireless Network Test report from your printer's control panel, if available.
    • Does the Wireless Network Test report indicate trouble?
    • Does the report indicate that the printer is connected to your wireless router, and not to a neighbor's? The network name the printer is connected to will be shown on the both the Network Configuration page and Wireless Network Test report.
    • Compare the printer's IP address [X]
      IP address
      An IP address is a series of numbers by which computers, printers and other devices on a network are known. An IP address is usually issued by the local wireless router (network) from its DHCP service. A device is given an IP address that is similar to the wireless router's IP address. For example, if the wireless router's IP address is 192.168.1.1, a printer may be given an IP address of 192.168.1.5. to the gateway IP address [X]
      Gateway IP address
      This is the IP address of your wireless router. . They should have a similar format (for example, the gateway IP address might be 192.168.0.1 and the printer IP address 192.168.0.5). If the printer has an IP address similar to 169.254.XXX.XXX, it probably is not connected to your wireless network.
    • On some printers, the Network Configuration page will list all wireless networks detected in your area. Is your network listed among those found? Does it have good signal strength?
    • Are there several wireless networks on your same channel or using channels close to your channel? You should use a channel at least 5 channels away from the closest used channel. Consider changing your wireless router's channel to 1, 6 or 11.
  • Are there any error messages on the printer or unexpected blinking lights (consult your manual to determine what to expect)?
  • Reset your printer (usually by removing the power cord from the back of the printer, waiting 30 seconds and then reconnecting the cord. Consult your manual for specifics).
  • Restart your wireless router [X]
    Wireless router
    A wireless router is networking hardware that allows both wired and wireless devices to connect to a network. When connected to a wireless router, devices such as computers, printers, and other Wi-Fi enabled electronics can share one Internet connection AND connect to each other. Connections can be made to the wireless router through a wireless connection or a wired connection using an Ethernet cable. by unplugging the power cord, waiting 60 seconds, then reconnecting the cord to the wireless router.

To install a HP printer (with built-in Jetdirect print server) as a network printer you need to do the following -
1. Open the printer’s menu and enable the Network Card – then configure the IP address of the network card so it matches the IP range of your network. Eg. If your IP's are 192.168.0.xxx then set the network card to a high number say 100 then set the Subnet Mask IP address to 255.255.255.0

If you have a wireless router then check the IP addresses that the router issues to the computers on your network and configure the IP address in the printer accordingly.
2. Install the HP printer driver on your computer/s using the LPT printer port.
3. Connect the printer with a LAN cable to the network hub/router.
4. Click on Printers and Faxes - right click on the HP printer and click on Properties.
5. Click on Ports and click on Add Port.
6. In available ports - click on Standard TCP/IP Port and then Configure port.
7. Tick the IP box and type in the IP address of the HP's printer IP address.
8. Click OK and tick Enable bi-directional support and then OK

Install the HP printer driver on every computer on your network and configure the printer’s TCP/IP port as previously detailed.

Do a test print page to check the printer.
You can now print from any computer on your network.

HP P2015dn wirless connection stopped working


Hi,
There is not wireless netwrok card is HP LJ P2015dn, However as i can understand you r using External Wireless Router or Wireless network or jet-direct card if u r able to work fine on USB than printer printing mechanism is working fine.
If u connect the printer via wired network connection and it keeps on loosing IP address than it may be problem with onboard network card of the printer.
If printer keeps on loosing IP Address than try upgrading the firmware of the printer.
To check the firmware and IP Address of the printer print a configuration page by pressing and holding down green button for 6 to 7 seconds

this printer is (as per HP specs) only connected via USB or Wlan Print server.
Check connection using USB cable and be sure Printer driver are correctly working.
Check on Router your Print server IP address (Lock it out of DHCP)
Put both PRT and PC on same home network (normally HOME or MSWORK)
Put Printer server IP address into your printer properties/port tab/ IP.
OR check if you see your printer server in your Windows network/home network

Please Help! My IP is driving me crazy!


modem only transmits signal.

router talks to your provider and gets IP address from them, depending on your subscription, you may have a static or dynamic IP.

your computer gets internal (home network) IP from the router, you don't have to worry about that since it is the router's IP address that is seen on the internet (router splits / shares a single internet connection in home networks).

about wireless connection from computers/wi-fi gadgets to the router, must configure the router with the ff:

wireless network name (aka SSID)
security type (WPA/WEP) and password/passphrase/security key
channel (1-12)

the above info must be then set to the connecting computers/gadgets

about wired connection: a working ethernet cable (looks like a phone cord but fatter) and a working computer/gadget ethernet port.
