Re: finding the network printer

Hello I have a challenge with printing. When i send to print across the network my document does not print but freeze the print queue for a HP Printer 1018

This could be a number of things. First thing to test is, does it happens with all documents. Suggest trying a Windows Test Print (assuming your using windows)

  • Go to Control Panel-->Printers
  • Locate the relevant printer
  • Right click on the printer and select Properties from the menu
  • Click on 'Print Test Page'

Does this cause the same problem. If not, then it may be a problem with the actual document you are trying to print so check if it is a large file. If it is a large file, then perhaps the 'stall' is actually just the printer taking time to process the file (how long have you left it?)

  • Try printing the same file from a different computer (if possible)
  • Check the system log on event viewer of your machine (Start-->Run, type eventvwr.msc click ok) for any error messages that may indicate the problem.
  • Try uninstalling the printer from your computer and re-installing.

Failing all that then please provide further information, such as how the printer is connected to the network, what OS you're using and what troubleshooting you may already have done.

hope this helps, good luck.

Please take the time to rate this answer. Many Thanks Don.

A impressora nao esta ativada, embora esteja conectada ao roteador, como liberar a impressao

When the printer is connected to the network the first time, the router will assign an IP address to it. To get the IP address that the printer was assigned, print a configuration page from the printer. It will show you the IP address on that page somewhere.
Using an Internet browser, type the IP address of the printer into the address line of the browser and press enter. It should bring up a printer configuration window.
Now, since each printer is different, I can't give you the exact steps, HOWEVER, here's what you are looking for:
Find a Network - TCP/IP configuration menu. Somewhere in that menu, it will give you the choice of setting a manual or static IP address versus a DHCP (Dynamic Host Control Protocol) assigned address.
You want to manually set the IP address to the address given on the configuration page. This would normally be where x is any number between 0 and 9. The subnet mask will normally be and the gateway will normally be the IP of the router, usually
Once the IP address is assigned permanently to the printer as a static address, you are now ready to add the printer to each computer on your network.
Add the Printer to Your Networked Computers
In Windows XP, follow these steps to add the wireless printer to your computer:
  1. Go to Start, Printers and Faxes.
  2. Double click on Add Printer
  3. Click Next.
  4. On the Local or Network Printer dialog box, choose Local Printer and UNCHECK the box that says "Automatically detect" the printer. Click Next.
  5. On the Select a Printer Port window, choose to Create a New Port, and then under Type of Port, choose Standard TCP/IP port. Click Next.
  6. Make sure the printer is On and Ready, and connected to the network. Click Next.
  7. Type in the static IP address of the printer that you set in the steps above. Click Next.
  8. It will then try to connect to that IP address. It you typed it wrong, or the printer is off, it will come back and give you an error.
  9. If all is well, it should then ask you for the printer driver. If it is an older printer, it may already be listed in Windows. Alternatively, you can insert the CD for the printer, and find the Windows XP English version of the driver. It will be an .inf file most likely.
  10. Double click on the appropriate INF file and then choose the driver you want to install. (the PCL 6 version is usually the one you should choose).
  11. Click Next. It will install the driver and ask you to name the printer.
  12. When it is done, click Finish. (You can choose to print a test page if you want).

How do I setup/install a printer on the DI-524UP?


Here I find your printer is not a network printer hence directly accessing is not possible . You need to configure the printer to one of the PC and share the printer access rights . Then take a another PC and search for the computer name ed : \\resdc
When you find the PC double click and you shall find the printer .Click on thee printer and connect.

You can see the SSID name from one of your wireless computer that is already connected to the wireless network. Just point your name over the wireless little computer icon down at bottom right hand by the time. It will say there "Wireless Network Connection, Connected to "name of the network". That "name of the network" is the wireless signal name like "Linksys" or whatever name you gave to your network when you setup the router. That's the SSID name as well. Wireless Network Name = SSID.

I am trying to share a printer.

Are they both under the same network? Can the pc find the laptop under network connections and vice versa? If not, then right-click my computer, go to properties, go to the tab 'Computer Name' click on the button change, and make it part of a workgroup of your choice of name. Do this for both making them part of the SAME workgroup.
Then, make your printer shared under that workgroup.

Trying to set up a network printer with DELL TRUEMIBILE 2350...please help

using windows xp on all the computers, when you connect to the printer windows should automatically install drivers.

1. Goto My Computer, Click My Network Places (Explorer Bar).
2. Click View Workgroup Computers (Explorer Bar)
3. Find the computer that has the printer physically connected to it, open it
4. Find the printer and right click it!
5 Select Connect... and wait for the drivers to install.

this should install the print drivers and install the printer on your computer. the printer should now be available in print dialogs i.e. word etc etc and from the Control Panel > Printers window.
