Hooking up wireless computer to printer

I have a HP portable computer that I have hooked up to a wireless router and a printer. I've been able to print out pictures without any problem. I recently went on vacation and took my portable computer with me. When I came back I was unable to print out pictures via the wireless computer. I got a note saying that the RVC service was unavailable. I unhooked the wireless router and the printer and left them off for a minute and then turned them back on to try to reset the connection but that didn't work. How do I solve this problem. Thanks for your help.

HP has a problem solving or troubleshooting software you can use. Also maybe your port settings changed. 168.06.01 is a typical port. Check that. Also use the WPS method to connect.

SOURCE: HP laserjet 1020 one page only when usinga printserver.

I have same problem and have just learned that HP LaserJet 1020 is a host-based (i.e. GDI-based) printer that makes use of the processing power of the host it is hooked up locally to. No GDI based printers works with print servers.

Hi jjank740;

First off, did you try to recycle your printer? Turn it off and back on again. Sometimes power outages can disconnect that printer. If that doesn't work. Go to the printer and access the system network configuration on the led panel. Type in the WEP number and password again, and let it search for the connection. That should do it. Once it's connected you'll see the blue wireless indicator turn on.

Good Luck

Mark

SOURCE: Printing wirelessly using ethernet from printer to router.

You need to get IP address from the printer, and enter it in the router. Or sometimes the software will do it on installation

Make sure your router is set to accept Wireless-B connections...most aren't. Log into your router and setup wireless, using an SSID and security. Then connect with your laptop and you're good to go.

All you should need to do is connect the HP printer to your wireless router via Ethernet cable (which should be included with the printer). Follow the instructions that came with your printer to set it up on your computer.

Setting up printer on home network


Because your printer is not either wireless or network capable, the only way to get the results you need is to purchase a usb print server, hook it to your router, set it up through it's management console, and if your router is wireless, you can hook up to your router and print to your printer with your desktop turned on or off.
