The printer has no wireless device installed, so that is not possible. since the printer needs a wired network to work then go on wired.

Run a cnet cnp430 on windows 7


I hope you are connecting the print server to a network hub or switch and not trying to connect directly to your Win 7 machine.
There are no drivers, a print server is a network device. Connect the ethernet cable from print server to your router. connect your printer to the switch. Search the network for the printer.

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.

Can i hook my printer to this router Linksys wireless-g 2.4ghz


You want to connect a printer to the network.
If you have Ethernet port on the printer then you can connect it to the router with the ethernet cable. IF it is wireless printer then you will need to connect to the wireless network on the printer. In both the cases you will need to set up your printer as a network printer. If you contact the manufacturer of the printer they will tell you how to do it.
If you do not have ethernet port on the printer and it has only USB port and it is not a wireless printer then you will need a print server. You can purchase a wireless print server and you can set it up so that all the computers will be able to print onthe same printer.
If you have only the USB port and you don't want to use print server, then you can connect your printer to one of your computer. Enable File and printer sharing on all the computer. If you go to microsoft.com and search for file and printer sharing, you will get steps to enable file and printer sharing.
If you want to check the wireless settings of the router, you will need to open the set up page of the router .

I am using my install disc and got as far as USB connection, which I did and now my continue window is grayed out. Trying to add my Lexmark 5600-6600 to my wireless network.


You're trying to do what?
Are you using a router that is also a print server?
Are you using a USB print server?
Printers don't hook up to routers unless it's a network connection with an ethernet cable.
Print servers hook up to printers with a USB cable, but are attached to the network with an ethernet cable in most cases.

The printer and print server has to be connected to the wireless router by a network cable for you to print wirelessly from the laptop.
If possible connect a long network cable between the print server and the wireless router or move the router next to the print server and printer.
You maybe able to use a wireless repeater/extender but is it worth the added costs and complication. The extended range would invite hackers unless you secure your system.

How can I connect my printer directly to the router and share it? There are 4 computer hook up to the same router, we want to share a printer through the router, the printer is not connected directly to...


Without knowing the models of your equipment I can just give you some general instructions.

First your printer needs to have an Ethernet port. If it does then you can just connect it to your router/switch with an Ethernet cable.

If you don't want to manually configure network settings on every device on you LAN then you need to turn on one (and only one) DHCP server on your LAN. This is the thing that hands out the network configuration to all your your devices on the LAN.

Your router / switch will probably have a dhcp server built in. Find the manual for your router / switch to learn how to enable and configure it.

When you turn your printer on it should get it's network settings from the dhcp server on your switch / router automatically.

You might want to hard code the mac address for your printer on your DHCP server so your printer always gets the same IP number.

You then need to configure a connection on each of your pc's to connect to the print queue on your printer. You will be able to follow the instructions that came with your printer for this.

I know there is a lot of jargon here. There are a few concepts to learn but once you have those sorted out you can apply the same principles to many networking situations.

Just google the terms you don't understand to get a better understanding of what it means and why you need it.

DPR-1260 ... prints but cannot access web config page


To get into the web configuration you need to know your firmware on the DPR-1260. If it is 1.12, us http://dlinkps-xxxxxx where the X's are the last 6 number of the mac address. If it is 1.20 and up, use http://dlink-xxxxxx, where the x's are the last 6 number of the mac address. If you do set it up as DHCP or static and know the ip address of the print server just type in the ip address of the print server on the address bar.
