Network Connected Printer Not Printing


TCP/IP Lan
Network Printer...this does not apply to USB / Parallel Cable connected printers.

This is a brief explanation of why a network printer might not be printing; this is not a simple explanation. There are many variables, this is the most common.

This is one of the most common mistakes with Network printers.

A Network printer should bet set to a Static IP address (or fixed address)

Terms:
Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP)
The Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) automates the assignment of IP addresses, subnet masks, default gateway, and other IP parameters.

Static IP addresses
When a computer / printer is configured to use the same IP address each time it powers up, this is known as a Static IP address.

Regardless if you printer is Wireless, or connected with a LAN cable to the Network.

The PC has a specific fixed location / address to find your printer; this was assigned when the printer was installed
(This can be found in the print driver under ports tab, something similar to 192.168.x.xxx, this is the IP address of the printer when it was installed)

If your printer is set to use DHCP, it will reassign a new address every time you reboot, shut down or there is a power loss.
(You might get lucky and it assigns the same address as previously assigned)

The PC will look to the address it was assigned at the time of the install and not the new reassigned address.
This assigned port in your printer driver is not capable of searching and updating the IP address of the Printer. This is not a Plug and Play item; it is not directly attached to the PC through Parallel Cable or USB.

If you reinstalled the printer after your system rebooted, you probably have the printer installed more than once. One works the other doesn’t! One has the correct address; the one that doesn’t work has the incorrect address.

If you do not set the printer to a static IP address this probably will happen again when it is restarted or there is a loss of power.


How to Fix this Problem:
1. Assign the printer with a Static IP address.
Read the manual specific to your machine, sometimes this can be found in the Set up Guide, or Administrators guide.
This setting can usually be found in the network settings of the printer.
You will also want to set the subnet mask, and the default gateway.
Which can be found using a PC? Click start, Run, type in CMD, and new black window will pop up, type ipconfig/all press enter, this will show all the network information you will need for this.

2. Making your PC communicate with Printer:
There are a few ways to do this, the easiest is to delete the old driver / printer and reinstall the driver. Most manufactures provide an automated click next type of install software. (Search their website for this)

You can also go into the printer ports of the driver and create a new port using standard TCP/IP port, and reassign to the new port.

A patch cable directly from your PC to Your printer will not work; it will work with a crossover cable and a few minor changes to the TCP/IP settings. (You might get lucky using DCHP on the PC Side)


There are several ways to Network a printer.

Printer connected to Router etc…

The other way is P2P, or a shared printer
The Printer is shared from a PC / Server, which the printer can be connected directly to the Sharing PC via Parallel Cable, USB, or Networked through a router as discussed above.

In this Shared connection an administrator has control over the printing abilities of others that are using the printer.
The down side to this type of connection: if that PC / Sever is not powered on, having printer connection problems, or not connected to the network. Any PC which is using this shared connection will not be able to print.

I hope this helps, if you need any further assistance, let me know.

Cannot print from computer. printer will print test pages, though


How the printer is connected to PC Via USB or using Network Cable. If it is connected Netwrok cable than printer configuration page and on netwrok configuration there will be IP Address if this is valid IP Address than reinstall drivers and upgrade the Firmware of the printer.

If Printer is connected USB than try different USB Cable and try different USB Port on the computer
If USB port on the computer is working fine and check in Device Manager if the printer has detected as unknown device or not detected at all.
If detected as unknown device than reinstall printer driver if not detected at all than USB Port on the printer is faulty you need to set up hardware repair of the printer.

Cant connect to internet


Configuring router for Cable Internet (LINKSYS)

To configure your router for Cable you will need to set your router's WAN (INTERNET) port to 'Dynamic IP' (DHCP) option. The router is set to this option by default.

Configuration Steps:

Step 1
Connect the cable modem to the WAN (INTERNET) port of your router. If the modem has USB connection make sure that it is NOT connected to any computers via the USB cable and that the modem is switched to Ethernet (not USB). Only the modem's Ethernet port should be connected to the router's WAN (INTERNET) port.
Connect your computer(s) to the router's LAN port(s) or establish connection to it wirelessly.

Step 2
Open your Internet Explorer and log into your router by typing in its IP address (in most cases the default IP is http://192.168.1.1 ). Note that you do not have to be on the Internet in order to access this address because you are just connecting to your router's address. Specify username and password for your router, default is `admin' for password and username is blank (nothing).

Step 3
After logging into the router select Setup. Set Internet Connection Type to 'Automatic Configuration (DHCP)' option. Under Setup, click on MAC Address Clone tab. Enable it and click on "Clone My PC's MAC". Do this from the computer which the cable modem was directly connected the last time. This will place the MAC address of your computer into the router. Save settings and reboot the router.
Step 4

Click on SAVE SETTINGS and then on REBOOT THE DEVICE including the cable modem to apply the new configuration.

If you are having difficulties accessing the Internet, you need to:

- Log into the router and go to Status page. Note what IP address it is getting on the WAN (INTERNET) interface. If the IP address you see under WAN (INTERNET) appears to be in the same range you are using on your network (e.g. 192.168.1.x), you will need to change the range you are using on your LAN to something different, e.g. 192.168.88.1. You can do this on your router under Setup > Basic Setup. Note that after changing the IP of your router you will only be able to access it through its new IP, e.g. 192.168.88.1.

- Uninstall your antivirus/firewall software (sometimes disabling or closing the software is not enough) and reboot your PC. After establishing the Internet connection through the router, reinstall your antivirus/firewall software.

TRENDnet TEW-432BRP router cannot obtain IP through DHCP


it seems that ur PC & cable modem configuration is ok, now the problem is with ur router WAN interface configuration. the problem would be one out of 2 - first to check whether ur router wan interface is configured properly to obtain IP address from DHCP (if possible, u can give the static ip address with same series as cable modem) second to check with ur ISP.

Wireless set up problem - no gateway ip or limited connectivity


Connect using Lan Cable
be sure to enable java on your Browser.
Use ONLY IE: some router refuse other browser.
SET your PC on a static IP address on SAME subnet as your router (but of course different IP).
If subnet concept is NOT clear to just just ask here.
When connected with router (on Lan Cable) check every setting (WPA-PSK) TKIP key, Broadcast / Channel etc.
You can also disable every WLAN protection and restore it later.
Activate WLAN connection WHEN you are STILL connected.
Last but not least: SET your DNS IP address = your gateway IP (router)

i assume that your printer is connected to a network. if so, it could be that the printer is set to use dhcp for the ip address. and if that's the case, it's better to set the printer to use static ip address since there would come a time that the dhcp server (a router most of the time) would provide another ip addresses to all the devices connected to it. that could be the reason why you are getting a "no connection" message (disconnecting and reconnecting it at times would solve the problem temporarily).

here are the steps on how to set static ip on the printer using a windows computer.(Note: the installation cd can automatically assign a static IP address as long as the printer does not obtain a dynamic (dhcp) address)

- boot up your computer the normal way so it'll get an ip address from your dhcp server
- then turn off your dhcp server so that the printer will not get any ip address via dhcp
- reset the printer to set its factory default configuration (with no dhcp address)
* unplug the printer from the power
* plug the power cord back in while holding in the printer’s
report button (it will try to find a dhcp server; after about three
minutes of no dhcp response, the printer will default to a static ip address of 192.0.0.192

- then print a configuration page to confirm that the ip address of the printer is set to 192.0.0.192

- then press the report button (wait until IP address is 192.0.0.192 before proceeding. if it remains set to 0.0.0.0, check the network cable connection to the printer and to the network is secure. If some other address appears repeat steps 3 and 4 until the default address appears
- you can now start the software installation cd

*during the installtion, follow these steps:
- select the model of the printer that you are using which is hp officejet before clicking on "next"
- then select "do network settings for me, then press "next
*follow the instructions on the remaining install screens
- the software will pick an ip address in the private 169.254.x.x range (not available on the open Internet) and permanently assign it to the printer. it will also set up a static route to that address in the computer’s printer configuration
- turn the dhcp server back on by turning on the dhcp server by
connecting your cable/dsl modem or dhcp to the network. because the hp now has a permanent static ip address, it will
no longer try to use dhcp server to get an address
- install the software on the other computers on the network who will be using the printer. the installation software will discover the hp printer at the 169.254.x.x address, and will add the static IP address in each computer’s printer configuration

Note: if the installation cd will permit you to change th private ip address from 169.24.x.x, it's better to set it on the same range as of the ip address given by your dhcp server (for example your dhcp server provides ip addresses starting from 192.168.1.100-192.168.1.250, set the printer's ip address to 192.168.1.59-below or any ip address that will not compromise any ip addresses that were already being used by your other devices)

hope this'll help you but if you'll have other concerns just ask me.

ciao!
