Question about HP Officejet Pro L7650 Printer
I have a 2005 HP Pavilion Notebook running on XP & my wife has a new HPG60-243CL Notebook. We formerly printed & scanned with our HPOfficejet Pro L7650 through a USB cable and everything worked fine. Then we installed a new Lynksys WRT54G2 VI router and put it all onto a local area network so that we could print and scan without swapping the USB cable. Printing via ethernet cable and router now works fine for both of us, but our computers sense no connection to the scanner and vice-versa.
Please help us scan using our new router. Thanks!
Scanning over network usually requires software to connect. First go to the drivers page as below.
Windows Vista | Windows XP, download the latest drivers (the Full Feature one) as well as the firmware update for the OfficeJet. Plus the "Update" files that's dated newer than the Drivers.
Upgrade the firmware (this will reset all custom settings in the OfficeJet like IP address) with a USB connection.
Run the full feature installer and if there is an option for Networked OfficeJet, then tick it. Also you may need to change/disable firewall for the installer to pick up the networked OfficeJet.
Scanning over the network usually connects with a customized TCP port. And most likely the Windows "Scanners and Cameras" will not pick up network scanners unless it's been defined manually (installer can do this part).
