My connection is via a parallel to parallel cable, and I am also having a similar problem. I'm reading that usb to usb cable is the only way it will properly function. good luck with it!

The problem is the firewall of your computer because its blocking the scanner to work better. Check the firewall of your computer from it is control panel if its on. If it is on, click the exception tab then check the network scanner tool and scan to pc box. Just put acheck on all scan or scanner word.

Installed the scanner program for bjc-80 onto a Netbook with only USB ports...wont recognize printer/scanner,,,help

Netbooks usually doesn't have PCMCIA capability. what you sould do is to disable the bidirectional function of the printer. To disable the bidirectional support You have to open the printers properties. In the "printers and faxes" map, right click on the printer and choose properties. then on the "Ports" tab, down below there is a tick mark choice with some text like: "Enable bi-directional support " you have to clear the tick mark!

Good luck!

Using the LPT port is not the same as using the network port. The LPT port does not utulise an IP address.
Plug in a network cable to network port and the printer wil usually aquire an ip address via DHCP.
I repeat the LPT port is not a network port and cant initialise an ip address
