    Some clarificationa-- I am not interested in using this as a remote printer for Internet connection, only as a networked printer for the computers at my home, 2 of which are hooked up to Ethernet ports on the Cisco router already plus 1 is hooked up through the wireless connection. I have already established printing capablilty when I bypass the router and hook up to the printer directly to the single Ethernet port on my "prime" computer a Dell with Windows Vista 64-bit operating system. Of course, using this port uses up the pathway to the internet from this same Dell computer. The problem resides with the printer not working off the Ethernet port on the Cisco router. It appears to be a firewall or communication issue, incorrect configuration, or other ? related to the router.

  • rgranvold Jul 25, 2009

    Attempted solution with just Vista and printer attached to Cisco-- still no printing.



    No - a cross over cable was not used, just a standard Cat. 5E cable from store.



    If "reflash your fimrware" means to reboot power to Cisco also done with no result.

  • rgranvold Jul 25, 2009

    This will be my last attempt today-- I have an appointment I need to leave for in 20 minutes.



    IP addresses: router 191.168.1.1; printer jet direct 10.62.2.39; Vista computer 9.192.140.68



    I did cmd ping (ip address)-- Response immediately "request timed out"



    No changes were made to factory default on Cisco.



    Yes I have internet connectivity when printer and Vista are both hooked up to router.



    One more shot for today.

  • rgranvold Jul 25, 2009

    Correction to Vista computer IP address--missed a character earlier: 79.192.140.68

  • rgranvold Jul 25, 2009

    Also, I have no idea what the "subnet mask" is!

  • rgranvold Jul 25, 2009

    Thanks Ted1430-- I will try this later and accept the above solution for now.

Check to see if the JetDirect has a static IP; you can do this by printing a test sheet. If so, it must be in the same subnet as the Cisco and must have a unique address. JetDirects are more often than not set to static as it's simpler to set up drivers when the IP doesn't change from day to day. The bad news is that it makes them a bit more work to move from one network to another.

If you get to a point where you can ping the JetDirect then you should be able to print to it. If you have up to date firmware it will most likely have an embedded web server as well that can be used for testing connectivity. Either way, once you know you have connectiivity, if you have the right driver and it's configured properly and you still can't print then it's most likely going to be bad hardware. You can try to re-flash the firmware before you give up though.

    Try hooking up just your VIsta computer and the printer to the Cisco and see if it works. If so, then you probably have a duplicate IP, possibly with another computer. In any case, try pinging it if it doesn't work.



    Were you using a cross-over cable when you direct connected the printer and Dell?

  • ted1430
    ted1430 Jul 25, 2009

    What are the ip addresses of the router, printer, and Vista machine? Also, what is the subnet mask?



    Did you try to ping the printer from the computer during the last test?



    Do you know what changes were made from the factory default for the router(beyond setting passwords) or is it a stock configuration?



    Do you have internet connectivity when the printer is connected to the router?

  • ted1430
    ted1430 Jul 25, 2009

    Change the addresses for the printer and the computer to be in the same subnet as the router, i.e.



    Computer - 192.168.1.2



    Printer - 192.168.1.3



    Additional computer - 192.168.1.4



    etc.



    Use a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0 for all devices.



    Set the gateway to 192.168.1.1



    Not sure on DNS, depends on the router setup but you can try 192.168.1.1 or whatever it's set to now. If all else fails, here are a few universal ones that will work:




    • 208.67.222.222
    • 208.67.220.220


    • 156.154.70.1
    • 156.154.71.1

    If 192.168.1.1 doesn't work for DNS, set DNS server to be at least one, preferably two of the above.

    This will almost certainly fix you up.

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 192.168.0.xxx 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 255.255.255.0 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.

After moving to a new house/ new state, I can not get my HP 2035n to connect wirelessly to the router. It will print from any of our computers, but must stay connected to the router. I can find no...


The HP P2035N doesn't have a built-in wireless ethernet connection. It has a wired ethernet port. To connect to a wireless router, you need the HP Jetdirect ew2400 802.11g Wireless Print Server or the HP Wireless Printing Upgrade Kit or a similar device (note: not all third-party wireless print servers will work with the HP printer). Did you have something like this and misplace it during your move? If you did, try to find the print server to use the wireless option. Otherwise, continue wired ethernet option since it is working.

HP support for the printer (manuals, set up infomation, and drivers) is available here: http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Home.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=18972&prodSeriesId=3662025&lang=en&cc=us .

I hope this helps.

Connecting the HP Laserjet 9500 hdn


This unit is meant to be used on a Parallel connection or an JetDirect Network adapter, for use over the local network.

If you want to use the Parallel port, you would need a computer which has a Parallel port on it and a Parallel printer cable.

According to the specs, this unit came standard with a HP Jetdirect 620n Fast Ethernet .

You can conect it to your router. This way all the computers can use it via the network.
Here is the user guide:

Need to install network printer to DLink Router


It has been a few months, so you probably have resolved this -- but just in case someone else is looking to find out the IP address on the internal print server of an HP Laserjet 4000n printer so they can set it up on their network, here are the steps to find the IP address on the HP JetDirect internal print server:

1. Have the Ethernet cable plugged in to the router and the JetDirect 600n card and power it on.
2. Make sure display screen on printer says "Ready".
3. Press the Menu button on the printer until you see Information Menu.
4, Press the Item button on the right (+) side until you see Print Configuration page.
5. Press the Select button and a configuration page should print.

One page is the printer's configuration and the other page is the print server configuration page. If you have a good JetDirect card, and good connection to your router, the IP address of the printer, plus its subnet mask and default gateway should be shown on the EIO configuration page.

If the printer has been manually set with a static IP address, subnet mask and default gateway that will not work on your network, you will see the settings will indicate "Configured by" User Specified.

To clear those settings and allow DHCP setting, perform a cold reset on the JetDirect card, by powering off the printer, holding down the green "Go" button and powering it back on until you see "COLD RESET," let go of the green Go button, wait a couple of minutes, then run another configuration page to see the freshly assigned DHCP address of the print server.

Hope this helps someone.

Connecting a new computer to an older printer


Does this Laptop have a docking station? If so then on the back of the docking station should be a parallel port.

Is you laptop connected to a router/firewall/switch? Then you can get a device that will make the printer become networkable and connect to you firewall switch...this unit is called HP jetdirect. It will make your parralel printer become more useful and connected to the network.

Problem is the printer is "old school" and the laptop is "new school", the JetDirect will bridge this...
