Only if you want to print by way of the network rather than by directly connecting to a single computer. Otherwise you can safely leave this alone.

HP DeisgnJet T770 - 24 InchThe network link light is solid amber. There is not activity indicator illuminated. The device will print all internal demo prints but cannot access from the network. I have...

not sure this will help but heregoes,
If you can see that the plotter believes there is network communication when no network cables are connected then the fault must lie within the plotter. ( I've had Carriage PCA's give me a similar fault with network issues) and the only way forward is to replace 1 part at a time using logical faullt deduction to identify the next part.
If you see an orange com light only after you connect the lead the network card is telling you there is a com fault in the line to the router/switch ( make sure your NOT using a crossover cable if connected to a router/switch as this is often the case for this fault) replace the cable then switch/router
if the plotter has been defaulted then it should be set to DHCP and should automatically find a working IP address and subnet,
another way of checking the plotters external comms device is to connect via USB, which may help decide if the replacement Main PCA was functional to begin with,
My experience would suggest in order the fault will lie:
external Net cables
external router/switch comms
Main Pca
Power supply ( comes with Main PCA)
Display panel
and finally the Carriage Pca,
thankfully the ISS Pwb has never given me any issues.
Good luck

Trying to connect a hp designjet t610 to a network using a usb

You cant from a network on a USB connection. USB connections are for "local" printers. "add" the Designjet T610 printer to your other PC under "printers and devices" tab. Good luck !

How can i install hp designjet 5500 PS on my com puter using network cable? My plotter (hp designjet 5500) do not have USB port instead it has netwok port from which one can install via the local network...

You are doing some mistake.

All peripherals will attach directly to the main server or main system.

Then from the main system you attach the network switch and share the peripherals with other

you connect the printer, plotter, scanner etc to your computer directly through the aproprite cable /

Bought the HP750C/Plus from work (it worked fine)

Can be tricky... DO NOT use a USB/parallel convertor. Either use USB only or parallel only to connect to your computer. I would NOT attemp to use a USB/serial convertor either.

If your computer does not have a parallel then best plan is to get an old PC with parallel connector and transfer data to it to be sent to the Designjet.

HP750c Plus, with Jetdirect j2552a or j4100n not working.

Here's a few troubleshooting steps that should help you out.

1. Are you getting a link light? If not, check the cable and the switch - if these are OK then you have a bad JetDirect.

2. Print a test sheet from the 750 and check the IP configuration. Be sure that you have an IP address that is on the same subnet as the computer you want to print from. If not, then you either need to configure an appropriate static IP or configure DHCP for the MIO and make sure it is working.

3. Once you have the IP worked out, try to ping the MIO from your PC. You can also try to connect to the MIO using the embedded web server if the firmware is recent enough. If either of these work then you should be in good shape. Try to re-install and see if it works.

One last thing, if you are printing directly to the plotter from the client computer without using a print server then one part of the setup is non-intuitive. When you are asked if the printer is local or network, you have to select "local" even though this is clearly not the case. Then when you get to choose a port, create a new TCP port.

Good luck and if the above doesn't help, post an update and we'll take it from there.

IP Assignment....

No, a tranceiver cannot be assigned an IP address. It just converts the signal between two types of lines (fiber, copper, etc.). This is mainly used for connecting together networking equipments such as switches or routers.

Depending on the type of interface you plotter have, you may need a device called a Print Server. This device has an IP address and allows a conventional printer signal to travel through an IP network. If your plotter is designed to be connected using a LPT (Parallel) cable, like old printers, you may look for the D-Link DP-301P+ or DP-300U.

Network Connection (LAN) for HP 650C

Plug it directly into the router and set the printer up on your Win2k/Xp as a network printer via the new printer wizard. The router will allow it to pull an IP number and you will find it on the network that way. It does not have USB because it was meant as an office printer and the option was network adaptor when purchased. If you look at the card in it, you can see it can be swapped out for another adaptor.
