Hi, you have to set up your printer as a device that can be communicated in your LAN by the two PCs.
To set up your printer properly in the LAN, you need to assign a fixed IP to this printer such that whenever it is switch on again, both PC still communicate to this printer without changing the new IP assigned to this printer.
You need to set up this fixed IP properly in your DLink router. For guidance please check this in your user manual of the Dlink. Please let me know any problem you may have again in future.
The first step in the
troubleshooting process is to check the TCP/IP settings. You can check
it by using the IPCONFIG/All command on the command prompt. You will
see the configuration results. If you see a blank configuration for a
card this means then the card is not assigned any IP address. You can
assign the IP address manually or via DHCP server. If you are using the
DHCP server for assigning the IP addresses then you can use the
following commands to get and release the IP address.
If the computer is still
unable to obtain an IP address, then there are several things that can
causing this problem such as bad network cable or NIC card, DHCP server
might have assigned all the IP addresses from its pool, mis-configured
TCP/IP settings, incorrect user name and password. You can try to add a
new well configured machine to the replace the malfunctioning machine
to see if the new machine is working with its settings. Also see if the
driver of the NIC is properly installed or not. In case of driver's
problem go to the vendor's website and install a new exact driver for
I had the same problem with a DLINK DAP-1160, it did not seem to reset and I could not connect, nor PING it. It turned out that the box WAS resetting, and although the default IP address 192.168.0.50 and subnet 255.255.255.0 was being set, my computer was assigning itself up a private IP address and subnet 255.255.0.0. In the manual, it does say that you must be on the same subnet, so I changed my alternate IP address for my ethernet to be static and set the subnet to 255.255.255.0 and everything sprung in to life.
To summarise: make sure the computer you are using to configure the DAP-1160 has its subnet to 255.255.255.0.
Verify that you haven't manually set the IP address of the desktop machine to an IP address that conflicts with another device on your network.
If this is the case, change the network settings to use Automatic or DHCP IP address assignment.
If this doesn't fix the issue, I suggest trying a different network card than the QHM8100R3D to see if that addresses the issue.
Normally most internal LAN addressing is carried out by a DHCP server which issues IP addresses to anything that is connected to the network. IE your computer. most switches are set to obtain an IP address from them as a default. to find the IP address of youe switch you need to look at your DHCP server ( possibly your router/modem) and see what addresses have been issued. Once you have found the address it is a simple task to open your internet browser and type in the ip address of your switch. once there you should be able to configure your switch as per your requirements.
Initially check whether the ip address is assigned in the computer in which internet is not browsing using the command ipconfig/all for windows and ifconfig for linux.If ip is present try to ping the default gateway ip address,if ping is success there is no issue in the cable you used and also with ip address.If ip is not assigned assign ip by manually or by using dhcp of router.Enable and disable the lan card in the router so that sometimes the problem get resolved.After ip is assigned and ping with router is ok .Ensure dns servers are correct else give google public dns server 220.127.116.11.Then try to ping www.google.com in command prompt if ping is success then you can browse.
Networks can be a little complicated and very picky.
Much of it depends on how the network is set up. Many will allow you to use DHCP, which means you set the device to accept whatever IP configuration that the network assigns. Some require a set IP address, subnet make, gateway and DNS numbers.
You must know the IP address for the Gateway ( which is usually the main network connection device that connects the network to the internet) and DNS, which is often the same as the gateway, and the subnet ( which will often fill in when you tab from the IP address for the device), in order to manually fill in IP configuration on your laptop.
You need to speak to the person who set up your network so you can see how your device needs to be configured.
I hope you find this information helpful and informative. If you found it helpful, please leave postivie feedback for me.
It sound like youe wireless card in the laptop is not configured correctly.
The TCP/IP settings on the laptop's wireless card should be as follows :-
In the wireless card's Properties - TCP/IP
Enablw - Obtain an IP Address automatically
Enable - Obtain DNS server address automatically
First thing to do is to check the other ports on the router if you will have connection, second is to check if the other computer has its LAN card installed (this is where you plugged in the cable from the router to the back of computer. try also to check if the lights on the router port and at the back of your computer is blinking. After that go to the computer that is not connecting. On the desktop you can see my computer or just computer>right click on the computer icon then left click on propoerties> click on hardware tab> then click on device manager> try to look for network adapter and click on the plus sign on its side to expand it. Examine if the icons have any yellow question mark or exclamation point or an x mark on it.
If it does, The yellow question mark means that the drivers for the LAN card is not yet installed. The exclamation point means The driver is not correct or is corrupted. And the X mark is disabled.
For the first symptom, you need to install the driver for the LAN card using a cd that came with it, or try to check its brand and model name so you can just download it. Second symptom, you need to uninstall its drivers then reinstall the correct and updated one. To uninstall you just need to right click on the sub network icons then uninstall. Reboot/Restart your pc, Install the correct one. Third symptom, you just need to right click on it then left click on enable. If it happens that the lights are not lit on the router try using the other ports or changing the cables. If the LAN card is not litting up it means it is already defective
