HPlaserjet 2600n without IP

INSTALLING A NETWORK PRINTER These instructions generally apply to all network printers with built-in network cards (print servers) such as HP LaserJet printers, IBM Infoprint laser printers etc. This example is for a network HP LaserJet printer. To install a HP printer (with built-in Jetdirect print server) as a network printer on a wireless network . You need to do the following -
1. Open the printer\'s menu and enable the Network Card - these print servers use a static IP address therefore, configure the IP address of the network card so it matches the IP range of your network. Eg. If your IP\'s are then set the network card to a high number say 100. (This is to prevent a conflict with the router issuing the same IP address to a computer on your network). Then set the Subnet Mask IP address to If you have a wireless router then check the IP address range that the router issues to the computers on your network and configure the static IP address in the printer\'s network configuration accordingly.
2. Install the HP printer driver on your computer/s using the LPT printer port.
3. Connect the printer with a LAN cable to the network hub/router.
4. Click on Printers and Faxes - right click on the HP printer and click on Properties.
5. Click on Ports and click on Add Port.
6. In available ports - click on Standard TCP/IP Port and then Configure port.
7. Tick the IP box and type in the IP address of the HP\'s printer IP address.
8. Click OK and tick Enable bi-directional support and then OK
9. Remove the printer cable, then do a test print to see if the printer prints correctly.
Install the HP printer driver on every computer on your network and configure the printer\'s TCP/IP port as previously detailed. Do a test print page to check the printer.
You can now print from any computer on your network.

Can you doubleside print on an HP 2600n? If so, how?

You can but it would have to a manual. Meaning you print out the document and load it into the manual feeder to print the other side.
Your installed driver should support duplex printing so once the document print on the one side the machine will prompt you to place the document in the manual feed tray.

Strange Printer Issue - HP Laserjet 2600n

The last time I checked, you cannot set up a local printer using a TCP/IP port. A local printer is physically connected to a computer via a parallel, serial (very old), or USB cable. If the printer is connected to a switch, hub, or router via an Ethernet cable, it is by definition a network printer and the driver install must reflect this. I don't understand why it is able to print out the test page after the install. If you open up Control Panel -> Printers and double-click on the HP Laserjet 2600n in there, it will bring up the local spooler for the printer. You may have a bunch of print jobs queued up in there that it cannot currently send to the printer. You may want to clear the queue first (cancel all print jobs). Let me know if you have problems clearing the queue & I can give you instructions on how to do that one too.

Is the driver the same as a 2550? Maybe you should download a 2600N driver from HP.

HP Laserjet 2600n networking

When you print a test page from the general tab of the printer properties dialogue, it completely bypasses the print spooler. Since your test pages print correctly, this tells us quite a bit. Some of it good and some of it bad.

The Good:

The printers, base driver install, connections and protocols are all functioning correctly.

The Bad:

The printers, base driver install, connections and protocols are all functioning correctly making it much more difficult to pinpoint the problem.

JetDirect printing through the print spooler can be trouble prone with no clear solution. The fact that the 2600n is a host based GDI printer can make it even more so however I still have a couple of things to try.

1-Search for Localspl.dll and check the version number, file size etc. etc. If it is anything other than:

(32 bit x86)
Localspl.dll 5.2.3790.4046 342,016 23-Mar-2007 20:24 x86


(64 bit x64)
Localspl.dll 5.2.3790.4046 750,080 23-Mar-2007 22:15 x64

then request a copy of this file from Microsoft here:;[LN];1414&from=KBHotfix&WS=hotfix

See KB934885
for more info. You may want to try the registry tweak there to see if it can help pinpoint the problem as well.

2-Download the latest firmware for the 2600n from HP. There have been at least 2 firmware updates that I know of for this printer. I don't know if any of the updates fixed issues with network printing but at this point it can't hurt.
