Re: wireless stupid printer

I had the same problem with a Hp 3300 and a Hp960c, both of them plugged and recongnized by the unit, there was no way to print.

Then I upgraded the unit firmware to version 1.3 and now both printers are working!

Re: wireless stupid printer

Hello Cat,

Have to describe a little the problem. If your PC's too far from the printer, I suggest Netgear Print device, wich you attache between the printer and the internet modem/Router.

So, your printer appears in the network and can be reacher wifi or via cable, by any computer in that network.

My experience, I don't advice the use of wifi devices. Cable is the best solution.

Have a nice day. Peter

When I print nothing shows up on the paper. I haven't used the printer for about 8 months and only printed out maybe 10 copies then. Has the ink dried up?

The ink can definitely dry up if left too long. You can try and tun the cleaning routine to see if that will make a difference. IF it doesn't then you'll have to replace your in.

Thank you for the opportunity to assist you in resolving your issue. Should you need further information or assistance please do not hesitate to let us know.

Hello. I have a new Windows 7 machine and cannot figure out how to connect the dp-311p print server to it. The old directions for Windows XP don't seem to work. Help, please?

The wireless printer is somewhere on your "local network".

Access "Control Panel", and access "Printers".
Click "Add Networked Printer", and "browse" your local network to locate the print-server.

Tell us any error-messages that you get, if any.

Trying to install HP 2101nw wirelss print server but get message can't find the print server on the wirless network form this machine. I am trying to set this up stand alone , not via a router

The server maybe enabled but you need to navigate on the printer and select a wireless network you want to connect to (just like you would when you connect a computer to a wireless netowrk). Once the printer is connected to the wireless network. try it again

I wanted to set up the printserver wirelessly but everytime my computer searches for the printer server, it only registers in the wizard if i connect the WPS54G to the router. If i do this, i am able to...

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.

Netgear wireless ps121 won't connect to cannon MFP 4100

Try to disable Zone Alarm temporarily and print.
Also, can you login in to your wireless router and see if print server is on the IP list?

Print Server Advice, Please!

I suggest that you just buy an HP printer that supports wireless or ethernet so it can just get itself an IP address and will not rely on any Windows Network Shares to let you print. A print server will be over the top for just one printer.

Wireless printer connection with at&t u-verse

OK I FINALLY figured out how to fix this. You need to program your router to allow your printer to connect to it. Do this by going to your 2Wire router setting homepage by entering in your address bar. Now sross to the bottom and click wireless. Go down to MAC Filtering and click Edit Blocked/Allowed Device List. You need your printers MAC address now. You can get this by turning your printer on and press the button that has a check mark on it. It will print out a report page. Your MAC address should be called the hardware address and should be 12 digits. Now go back to your computer and enter this address in the form xx.xx.xx.xx.xx.xx where it says MAC address and click add to list. You might need to enter your password now mich should be on a sticker on the bottom of your router. Voila! Now make sure you have uninstalled the HP software from your previous install attempts if you have any, and turn off your firewall. (Control panel--security---turn off firewall) Now use the provided HP install disk and follow the instructions. Click install a wireless printer. It will not find it now but thats okay. When it asks what type of connection you want to have click wireless. Now select the basic setup where you connect an ethernet cable to your printer and router. Now connect the printer and router with the ethernet cable. Now click refresh. It should find it now. You'll need to select your network name and enter your WPA network key (located on the bottom of the router if you didnt change it). It should find it now!! Remember to turn your firewall back on! Happy printing!!

I've had a similar issue with a Netgear wireless print server. I had to configure it via Windows but was finally able to get it all working by using the Mac CUPS interface.
