Question about HP LaserJet 5000 Printer
I have a Dell Desktop and a MacPro networked through an AT&T Gateway modem/router with an HP LaserJet 5000n. The MacPro and Dell see each other fine, and the Mac can print as normal to the HP Printer. But I can not connect the Dell (WinXP) to the printer at all. I've printed a config page, and HP says the IP is 10.1.0.1 and I followed all the steps through The Wizard, but nothing lets me even print a Test Page. Its as if the Printer doesn't exist. Everything is hard wired using ethernet (no wireless for this set up)
Any help would be greatly appreicated.
In XP go to START > CONTROL PANEL > NETWORK CONNECTIONS > LOCAL AREA CONNECTION
you should see a menu showing your network card and a window that says stuff like Client for Microsoft Windows. Below that window is an INSTALL button. Click on that and double click PROTOCOL. Select IPX/SPX NetBios and hit OK. You'll probably need the WindowsXP CD to finish installing the protocol.
The LJ5000 is a very old printer and if I remember correctly, it uses the IPX/SPX Netbios language to communicate through a network. Netbios is not installed by default in XP.
