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.
Here are possible solutions to your problem. Are you trying to install new printer on the network or it is already installed but not detected.
1.Check the printer or the computer is if turn on. 2.Check the printer cable if connected. 3.Make sure you are properly configure the printer using their network ID or the computer is being shared or not.
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.
are you still on the network, ping the printer ip address or eg Ping 192.168.10.4 -a -t, if you get a reply and you have an administrative access to configure the printer then you are done, but ensure you are on the same domain, same subnet mask and within the IP range for this network,
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.
Add network support to your printer. If your printer is not already wireless you can connect it to a wireless router
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.
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.
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.
You should be able to access the printer just like any other wireless
device. Select the printer from the Print menu when you print.
Share Your Printer in Windows
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.

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

to the printer. On the other computers within the network, open the
control panel and click "Printers and Other Hardware." Select "Add a
"Printer Connection." When prompted, select this option instead of the
local printer. Find and select the printer you just installed and
Print as normal. Next time you print a page, send it to your networked printer.
to clarify this, you need to install the printer in a computer that is connected to a Local Area Network lets call it computer 1. Once the printer is connected to the computer 1, share the printer by going to the start/settings/ printers. Right click on the lexmark e120 printer and click share. Click share this printer. Once done the printer that is connect to computer 1 is now on the network. on the other computer lets call it computer 2, to to start/settings/printer and click add printer/ select network printer and then browse the printer in the network and select it so that it will be added. Now you computer 2 has a network printer installed. try printing, make sure not to turn off the computer 1 when printing, or else it wont print.
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,
