Question about Dell Office Equipment & Supplies

I have a Dell Printer 5100cn it is tied into ten PC's through a router, no Server. The IP address keeps changing, and I can not figure out how to set it manually. The other Dell printers let me set-up manually. This one does not give me the option?

Dell 5100cn data violation


I would check if there are any printing restrictions set for the printer. Most current printers offer the option of either restricting based on user name or Ip address. The later intended to prevent Ip direct printing to bypass pay for print systems. That or your non-admin user has the incorrect driver installed and that is triggering the erro.

Connect motorola modemsbSB6121 to Belink N600 wireless router with out losing internet signal


Step one turn on PC directly connected to ModemsbSB6121 without Wi FI router being involved.
Step two go to Command prompt type in ipconfig (press enter)
Step three note IP address of default gateway and ip address issued to P.C.
Step four type in default gateway address into browser and log into Modem.
Step five look for DHCP Server and allocate IP addresses from at least 50 for example 192.168.0.50 starting ip lease ending ip lease 192.168.0.254
Step six connect Wi Router to P.C. via ethernet cable only - remove ModemSB6121
Step Seven shutdown and restart p.c
Step Eight go to Command prompt type in ipconfig (press enter)
Step Nine note IP address of default gateway and ip address issued to P.C.
Step Ten type in default gateway address into browser and log into Wi Fi Router
Step Eleven Change IP address on Router to 2 as example 192.168.0.2. (it has to match in that modem device would have been 192,168.0.1)
(if it was 10.0.0.1 make wi fi 10.0.0.2 make sure subnet mask is the same like 255.255.255.0)
Step twelve Change DHCP Server to off
Step Thirteen may need to set default gateway to MODEM IP address for example 192.168.0.1
Step Fourteen plug modem router into Wi Fi router may need to plug into WAN port on WI FI router .
Step Fifteen shutdown and Restart Computer
Step Sixteen go to Command prompt type in ipconfig (press enter)
Step Seventeen type in PING 192.168.0.1 (if this is modem IP address and default gateway IP addess)
All this above is to avoid IP address conflicts or mismatching
Subnet mask should be 255.255.255.0
either it uses 192.168.0.1 or it uses 10.0.0.1 make sure Wi FI router is set to different address to Modem Router.
I suspect either a clash occurs or your P.C gets a different IP range from ther WI FI DHCP server.
Happy troubleshooting !

Asus fonnepad does not conect automatically to wifi router


1. Launch a browser and access router settings by keying in http://192.168.1.1 on the address bar.
2. To set up the VPN server:
1) Click "VPN Server" on the Advanced Settings menu on the left panel.
2) On the "Enable PPTP Server" item, select "Enable".
3) Select type of Broadcast Support.
4) Select type of Force MPPE Encyrption.
5) Type a range of IP addresses for the VPN clients. The example on the screenshot below shows an IP address range of "192.168.10.11" to "192.168.10.20".
*The specified IP address range can be from 192.168.10.2 to 192.168.10.254. As a VPN server, the ASUS router can assign only a maximum number of ten IP addresses.
6) Input a username and password for VPN clients. A maximum of ten usernames and passwords can be added.

Dell 5100cn as a netwok printer via my LAN


Connect it to the router. It should hopefully be set to get an ip address from the router. On each computer that you want to print from you need to select Add Printer in the Printers section of Control Panel and select a "Network Printer". You should be able to either browse for it or put the ip address in (depends on the router, printer settings etc). It should then ask you for the drivers etc.

If stuck there is a comprehensive how to on the Dell website.

Dell 5100cn change ip address


Changing Printer's IP Address isn't that complicated. There are two ways on how to change the printer's IP Address.

If you know the old printer's IP address, you can simply type that old IP address on the Address Bar of your Internet Explorer or any other browser (ex: http://192.168.1.101). It should redirect you to the printer's User Interface. From there you can go to Network then TCP/IP settings. You can change the IP address of the printer. Make sure to use an IP address within the same range of your network.

The other way to change the printer's IP address is by its own Menu/Settings on the printer's LCD panel.
On your printer, press Menu then got Settings. Look for Network or LAN settings and click on Advance. Select TCP/IP and click on Edit. You can now change the IP address of the printer from there. Click on Done or Save after that.

Note: Make sure the use the correct IP address within the network's range.

Need IP address for Dell 5100cn printer


You will need to print off a printer settings page. Usually found under the Reports menu or something similar. It will list the IP address. Once you have the IP Address, make sure it is set correctly in your printer drivers in the Control Panel on your computer.

Changing a Dell 3010cn IP address and Storecenter


Print a settings page from the printer. If you are not sure on how to get the settings page, download the user manual from support.dell.com, there should be instructions in there on how to get this. Once you have the settings page locate the IP address on the print out. Take this IP address (which may be different then the one you want to use) and open internet explorer, put the IP address in where you would normally type a web address, hit enter. This will take you to the embedded web server of the printer. Once you are there, you can look for printer settings, ip address or TCP/IP address. Once you have found this, you can set a static (meaning it will not change, unless you change it) IP address (the IP address your tech person gave you) and submit the information to the printer. The printer must be on and in the ready state for this to take hold. If you are prompted for a username and password for the embedded web server, dell default username in small case is admin, leave password blank or username admin, password is password. To confirm that the address has taken, print another settings page from the printer.

Very strange problem with Dell 5100cn


Hi Dejoda89,

Unfortunately, the problem is not with the printer, but rather the computer that you are trying to access it with.

It could be a corrupt Print Driver, corrupt registry file, your firewall, or even the security settings on the print server.

The network card of the printer doesnt care where the source of the request is coming from. If you can address the printer via tcp/ip, then the port is active and working.

Check with the system administrator of the print server to see if they can help resolve the issue.

Wireless printing


  • I presume that the printer is not directly connected to the PC. Now if the Printer is connected to the USB port on the router, you have to check if the router detects it and the printer server is online. Also since u changed the router, you will have to change the settings in your PC to reflect the IP address of the printer server (the router.)
  • If the MP830 is connected wirelessly to the router, make sure that the IP address of the printer is in the same subnet as your laptop. (Check the configuration settings, they can be configured using a browser by pointing it to the IP address of your printer)
