Star micronic sp700 ethernet problem

Star Micronic SP700 ethernet connected via local area network. Set static ip address to and it works most of the time. However, sometimes it won't print and it has to be turned off and back on - then it prints what it was supposed to and works again for a bit. Once I set the ip address to the static, I saved the configuration at the Star ip set up address However, now I am not able to get into anymore. I can't ping it on any computer. I want to set the host disconnect message for the kitchen to enable so they know when a ticket hasn't come in. However, I can't get into the ip address. Help! Thanks. Peace. Michele

    Found the solution! I was on the phone with StarMicros for an hour. He was in my pc and noted that all settings were correct. We tried everything and right before he said I could try downgrading the software or firmware, he suggested UNCHECKING BI-DIRECTIONAL - Voila! It works beatifully! Thanks for all the help!

10.x.x.x subnet can't see 192.x.x.x network. There must be manufacture reset button on the Star micronics sp700?. You can configured your laptop/computer IP to (not the same as printer) than use crossover ethernet cable (you can find it in best buy), connected directly between your laptop and printer, you should be able to see it on your browser now.

Most people big mistake when assigned static ip. First you need to reserve that IP on your router so it doesn't get pickup by DHCP and assigned to another devices.

    Well, that makes sense. However, my pc is one of our restaurant POS terminals. It has both a wireless network for our guests and a lan ( for the inside terminals to talk to each other for the POS system. My other ethernet (Epson) printer works fine for years and then all of a sudden stops printing sometimes. However, it happens a lot less than the brand new Star Micronics. Yes, there is a reset button. However, when I reset it and enter that IP in the utility, still nothing. My pc already has a 192.168.x.x for the wifi, but it still can go to the printer site. As to reserving, I don't know what that means. I've disconnected the new printer, reconnected the old Epson and at least that one only stops on occasion. What is happening is that the printer is constantly going offline. When it does, I turn it off and back on. It stays online for a bit and then goes offline again. Does that information change anything? Thanks

We have a wifi at home.. But every time a connect to it it doesn't work or connect either it always says "DISCONNECTED!"

Try using a static ip address and use the information from the router's ip address. (ip address, dns, subnet, gateway etc.)

Another option is to reconfigure your router by going to the router's ip address(which you can find [if on a computer] in control panel> networking>change adapter settings>local network>properties>ipv4 address)

your printer is printing garbage because the file you tried to print corupt or the printer driver is corupt restart printer and pc then try printing a test page from the printer driver if this works then that file you printed and did come out properly is corrupt suggest you delete or if it a word file copy and paste into a fresh word document should sort out the corrupt file if the test page also comes out as garbage the uninstall the printer driver and reinstall it then test again

Connecting both ethernet and wireless

Yes, you should be able to do that. Check to see if your Network Card is set for DHCP and not a static IP. Click on Network Connection in the control panel and then right click and go to properties on your Local Area Connection. Then click on TCP/IP and then Properties.

Make sure both are set to obtain an IP address and DNS automatically. Also try all Lan Ports and a different network cable just in case.

How to set a static IP address in Windows behind a Linksys Router

Sorry mate but you have kinda lost me here, if you need a static IP address for the internet you need to contact you isp and they will provide you one, if you want to set your machine to set IP Address just go into properties for local network connection and use somthing like and leave the dns to obtain. but you wont be able to set a internet static ip address by doing this, only way is to contact your isp.. All the best John
