I can ping the device, scan from the network, get to it from the network via http but I cannot print to it. I created a local TCP port using RAW and even LPR and still have problems printing to it. Any ideas?
What drivers are you using? try both PCL and UFRII. also, check thru WWW interface(will be faster) if there's a department managment turned on. i it is, disable it.
i assume you are creating local tcp/ip port with printer ip, raw mode, port 9100 and device is canon network printer. also did you noticed is windows discovers the device as canon network printer, raw mode etc, or you have to enter it manually? if it can't discover it, there's some connection problem.

Did you give the machine a static IP address or DHCP meaning let the network decide what IP address is issued this machine LOVE static YOU telling it via admin setting on the copier, admin, admin 1, network, basic . set ip, mask etc.
Drivers are for print functions only (or twain scan via USB). Check for bad cable, port, or jack. Could be another device on the network is being handed the IP of the copier via dhcp (or vice versa) can you ping it from a workstation? I have also seen the dell network assistant utilities on some dell workstations cause issues like this.
Be sure that you have network option installed. On top cover of the printer itself (under the scanner) you can see a floppy drive, can you? OK, then it is capable of network printing. Also parallel (Mini-Centronics) port will work. You may try parallel printing first, it is easier. Download from www.xerox.com/support drivers for your DC440ST.
Install driver. Connect parallel port to computer via Cenntronics cable and you'll be ready.
If you want to print from network you must have UNIX printing installed in Windows. You have to create a new port in the printer driver and create a print queue and name it "lp". Port address is also needed. For example 192.168.0.1.
To set up network address on the printer you have to log into the printer as administrator.
Press (key) button on the top right part of the keyboard. On the touch screen enter: #22222 (hash sign and five 5's) Enter "Networks settings" "TCP/IP" "network address" "STATIC" "192.168.0.!" for example" "SAVE" "QUIT" and the printer will boot.
You may have to ping for the network address to see if it responds. If the copier/printer prints out a config sheet in five minutes you can check the address and other setting you just did.
If the printer DOES NOT PRINT the config sheet it may be disabled in settings. You can log in again (key) #22222 and enable "print config sheet" + reboot again.
First, try to do a test print on the printer. This helps to determine the status of the printer and narrow down the problem. If it does print then change the network cable and/or the port where it is attached to the wireless router. Good luck
