Connect fuji xerox printer - mac pro computer as it was


Hi Lindsay. Was the fuji xerox printer plugged into the old modem by a blue ethernet cable ?
When you changed your modem it would have had a device inside it called a dhcp server that allocated the IP addresses to your computers automatically.
Now I suspect that the new modem has a device inside it called a DHCP server that is allocating a different range of IP addresses to your computers from waht it used to be.

Here comes the technical part
On the printer menu screen there should be a network setting option . Take a note of the IP address of the printer it will be 192.168.0.x or 10.0.0.x x being the unknown number. also take a note of the subnet mask . it will most likely be 255.255.255.0
next but I have no idea how to look that up on a MAC IOS system.
you may see the ip address in the printer settings properties in the MAC
you may be able to get your ISP to remotely set up your DHCP server in your router to work in the appropriate ip range to match your printer IP address and to avoid allocating the printers ip address to your computers. Then restart the computers to get new ip addresses.
If you tell them the printers IP address and Subnet mask they should be able to alter the modem's settings DHCP settings for you.

The other option is to get the DCHP IP address range of the modem and subnet mask and change the printers IP address setting and subnet mask to match the DHCP leases range by giving it a much higher number than the computers are most likely to be running on.
so if the range was 10.0.0.1 to 10.0.0.254 with subnet mask of 255.255.255.0 then the printer would be set to 10.0.0.254 and subnet mask 255.255.255.0 The first three left numbers must match they are known as the network component of the ip address 10.0.0.0 or it may be 192.168.0.0 the zero end number is the network address so you can't allocate it to a device. 192.168.0.1 or 10.0.0.1 is usually the modem address.
ISP may be able to guide you how to change the setting on the printer .

I had a client that had a lot of trouble getting a tech to come out and set up their printer to an APPLE system. I was the final Tech that eventually came out and set up the printer .

Wireless printer goes offline


Let's set a static IP address for the printer:<br /><br />- Print a Network Config Page from the front of the printer. Note the printer's IP address.<br />- Type that IP address into a browser to reveal the printer's internal settings.<br />- Choose the Networking tab, then Wireless along the left side, then the IPv4 tab.<br />- On this screen you want to set a Manual IP. You need to set an IP address outside the range that the router automatically sets (called the DHCP range). You can change the DHCP range of the router using its internal settings page.<br />- Use 255.255.255.0 for the subnet (unless you know it is different, if so, use that)<br />- Enter your router's IP (on the Network Config Page) for the gateway and first DNS. Leave the second one blank.<br />- Click 'Apply'.<br /><br />Now, shut down the router and printer, start the router, wait, then start the printer.<br /><br />After this you may need to redo 'Add a Printer' using the new IP address.

  • While holding down the Report Page button, press the Cancel button three times.
  • Release the Report Page button.
Now, re-connect your printer to you new router.

Hi there,\r\nWe have a Linksys WPS54G print server and I'm trying to re-connect it to the new Veridon Fios router. The print server has a default ip address of IP Address:169.254.53.156 but the new router...


The problem is that your printer can't obtain an IP address from your router so it is kicking back the IP address 169.x.x.x which indicates it can't reach the router. You need to go into the IP address configuration on your printer and set a static IP address on the same subnet as the router. For example your router's IP is 192.168.1.1 so set your printer's IP address to 192.168.1.5 and set the default gateway on the printer to the router's IP address (192.168.1.1) next you need to enter in the DNS Server address which is also the router's IP address (192.168.1.1). Once you do that you will be on the same network as your router. From there you can add the printer on your computer through devices and printers if its a Windows pc. Cheers! J the Guru

I followed this suggestion and now the IP address is 0.0.0.0. I can not get to the printer setting. I don't know if the DHCP setting still remained as static instead of dynamic. ANY SUGGESTION?


I had the same problem, after removing the DHCP settings, maybe for an error during the configuration the printer didn't assume the new IP address and it resulted 0.0.0.0 from the configuration page.
No way to connect to the printer until I did a network card reset following this procedure:

************************************
7. Network Card Reset:
a. Turn the printer off.
b. Open the front cover.
c. Hold down the Continue and the Cancel button while powering the printer on.
d. Release the buttons when the Error light (bottom light) stays on solid.
e. Close the front cover and the printer should return to a READY state.
f. Press and release the continue button to print a network settings page.
g. On the page that prints verify the following:
�� Status = Not Connected
�� Active = Yes
�� DHCP,BOOTP,RARP Enabled = Yes, Yes, Yes
�� Address Source = Manual
�� Address = 0.0.0.0
************************************

The printer took a new IP address from the DHCP server.
Since my goal was to set a fixed IP address, I entered the printer configuration through Internet explorer, typing the newly assumed IP address and going to TCP/IP settings where I removed The 'Auto DHCP' and I set the IP address I wanted.

Router sends my printer invalid ip address


Wow what a mess, this is hard to explain easily?

All network printers should be set to a Static IP address. (Fixed address). Somewhere in your Printers network settings you will find this, it should not be set to DHCP...

Your router is probably set to DHCP, which reassigns all address.

Your computer will send out a communication telling everyone on the network the PCs new address...

Your network printer will not do this.

In your PC in the Print Driver Properties you will see Ports which should have the IP address of your printer, which is a TCP/IP port.
Which will stay the same as when you installed the printer.

When your printer reboots and a new is address assigned if set to DHCP, the pc will still look for the old address, while the printer has a new address.

That is why the printer should have a static IP address assigned from within the machine
The gateway, subnet mask should reflect the same as your network. (The gateway does not have to be in there to work by the way, if you’re using it on the same router)

If you reinstalled the printer after your system rebooted, you probably have the printer installed more than once.

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 electricity.

Hooking 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 settings.

USB and Network use different protocols. TCP/IP uses a completely different addressing system.

I don’t think your problem was with your network, as much as it is with the Static address of the printer.

If it is printing for you now the easiest thing to do here to prevent future hassle...
print the network settings

go into your printers IP Networking settings and set the IP address and Subnet as what the printed page is ( I usually turn off DHCP, IPV4, IPV6, NetBIOS etc, and only have tcp/ip on, if your machine offers this?)

Good Luck

About n/w printer


If you have the network enabled 1022 you need to find out it's current IP address. To do this press & hold the Go button on the top of the printer (the large button) for 5 - 10 seconds or until the printer starts to print. This prints out the configuration page.
The printer is set to get an IP address via DHCP from the factory, but once you have it's IP address you need to give it a static IP address. You can do this by typing the IP address into a web browser & go to the network tab. choose an IP address that has not been allocated already & apply the changes.
You will need to type the new IP address into the browser if you want access to change further settings.
You can then add the printer using the new static IP address.

Printer unable to obtain IP address


Reset the TCP/IP information. To do so, Turn off the printer power. With the cartridge door open, hold down both cancel and continue buttons and power the printer on. Hold the buttons until the lights cycle. The TCP/IP information should be cleared. Wait a few minutes.The printer should pick up a new IP address from the network, or should set a default IP. Press the Continue button to print a new test page, and you should see the new address.
