How to connect a 3 computers to one photocopier machine using an IP address.


As all your PCs have Internet connection, I'm assuming that you have some kind of "network" already installed.
On each PC connected to LAN (Local Area Network) use "add printer wizard" and choose "add network printer" option. The wizard should be able to find your Canon device.

Where is IP address for the MFC-7220 printer


Network printers do not have a set IP address, you need to configure the printer with an IP address that uses the same range of IP addresses as your network.
The IP configuration is normally done through the printer's Menu on the printer's buttons.
If your are using a network IP range 192.168.0.*** that your wireless router issues automatically then select a fixed IP address on your printer above the number of computers that is installed on your network. (ie if you have 10 computers the make the printer's fixed IP address say 192.168.0.30) so the wireless router cannot issue a conflicting IP address.
When you install the printer driver on each computer then go to the Printer Properties - Port tab - click Add Port - IP port and enter the printer's fixed IP address and printer name.
Do a test print to check if your computer connects to the network printer.

Brother MFC-8460N network printing, local scanning


Yes this is possible. Depending on the type of installation that has been done on the computer, you can even scan documents to your computer as a network scanner.

You can check and see if all the features have been installed on your computer. Click on start, all programs, and look for the folder called brother. If you can find brother you can look for the sub category for Conrtrol Center. From Control Center you can scan by clicking on one of the icons. Like file or image.

If none of this is installed, get your installation disk and install the software, you can do a network installation or a Local (USB) installation.

If you decide to do a Local installtion remember to only plug in the USB cable when promted to.

If you decide to do a network installation, the machine should already be installed on the network, which I assume it is since its being used as a network Printer.

Please let me know if any of this info was usefull, and if you require more info about this.

Trying to connect printer to computer wireless


  1. Step 1 Check if your printer is network ready. Many newer models are designed to work on networks. Examine the documentation to see if your printer supports Wi-Fi (802.11x) or Bluetooth.
  2. Step 2 Add network support to your printer. If your printer is not already wireless you can connect it to a wireless routermag-glass_10x10.gif using the RJ-45 Jack (it resembles a large telephone jack). You can also buy an expansion card that will add a jack or buy an external print server that will connect to the USB or parallel port.
  3. Step 3 Connect your printer to the network. If your printer is not wired, you’ll have to connect it directly to your wireless router. Connect a networking cable from the RJ-45 Jack on the printer (or adapter) to the router. Plug it into any jack except the UPLINK. The printer should automatically connect to the network when turned on.
  4. Step 4 Install printer drivers on all computers. Using the disc that came with the printer or drivers downloaded from the manufacturer, install the printer’s drivers onto each computer on the network.
  5. Step 5 Print. You should be able to access the printer just like any other wireless device. Select the printer from the Print menu when you print.
  6. Share Your Printer in Windows
  7. Step 1 Install the printer. Set up the printer as normal on a machine that is already connected to the wireless network. Connect all necessary cables and install all necessary drivers.
  8. Step 2 Open the printers and faxes folder. Click "Start," then "Control Panel," then "Printers and Other Hardware" and then "Printers and Faxes."
  9. Step 3 Share your printer. Find the icon for the printer you just installed. Click the icon once and then select SHARE THIS PRINTER in the tasks pane on the left. Now, right click the icon, select properties and go to the SHARING tab. Click "Share Name," and then click "Okay."
  10. Step 4 Connect to the printer. On the other computers within the network, open the control panel and click "Printers and Other Hardware." Select "Add a Printer."
  11. Step 5 Select "Printer Connection." When prompted, select this option instead of the local printer. Find and select the printer you just installed and select it.
  12. Step 6 Print as normal. Next time you print a page, send it to your networked printer.

Hope this Help.

Cheers!!!!

DP-190 Network Printer


I succeeded in printing via network to the Panasonic Workio DP-190.  Here is a brief summary of what needed to be done...
* HP laptop w/ Windows XP SP2 installed * requires LPR support via "Print Services for Unix" to be installed from Windows Components (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb457002.aspx) * Installed using GDI printer driver (http://panasonic.co.jp/pcc/products/en/mfp/download/dp-190/list.html)
During the GDI installation I choose a 'Network printer' and the printer was already setup for proper IP addressing, etc...
I created a new printer port of type LPR, doing so required me to input the printer's IP address and a queue name -- the queue name was left blank.
Hope this helps, John
