MP830 and JetDirect 175x print server

I am setting up a Canon MP830 on a HP JetDirect 175x external network print server.

I have two problems. The first problem is I cannot print the test page/config page from the print server to the MP830. The second problem is I cannot add this printer from my windows XP PC. The first problem could be causing the second problem I guess.

I can see the print server on the network with my network magic software. When I log into the printserver with network magic, I can see the the print server sees the MP830 through the USB connection (gets a serial number back and so on).

But that's all I can do so far...

Re: MP830 and JetDirect 175x print server

Just to throw my 2 cents in here:

When I set up a small laserjet on an old PONY print server, I had to assign the IP manually in the port settings.

The problem with this is every time the power went out, etc, I would have to go to my routers configuration page to see what IP it was assigned each time, and change it so it would work.

To do this, and if you know the print servers IP:

Go to printers and Faxes
Right click on the printer
Click 'properties'
Choose the 'ports' tab
Scroll all the way to the bottom to 'standard TCP/IP Port' and check the box next to it.
Click on "configure port"
You can manually enter the ports IP in there.

Ok, I'm just gonna throw some things out there..

Is the default printer the Canon Pixma ?

Verify network connectivity.
Make sure you can acces the server.
Make sure the printer availability time is right.
Using the Add Printer Wizard, search for the printer.

Well, that's all I got for now.

How to add NIC in HP color laserjet CP1215 Printer?

If this model HP does not have an expansion slot for a HP Jetdirect Print server, then to use this printer on your network you have two options.
1. Connect the printer to a desktop computer on your network and set it uo as a shared printer. This means this computer and printer needs to be powered up for the other computer on your network to print to the shared printer.
2. Connect the printer to a print server that is connected to your network.

Can the Canon MP830 be set up as a network printer. If so, how do I do it?

It can be done two ways. First, you can purchase a Silex Print Server C-6700WG and connect the MP830 to your network through this server. Second, you can connect the MP830 to one computer in your network and use that computer as a server to handle print jobs from other computers (clients) on the network (called print sharing).

Information on how to do either of these can be found here. Type "network printing" in the small search window in the center of the screen and click the Search button. You will find several links related to network printing/printer sharing.

I have a hp PSC 1610 all in one printer, connected to a hp desktop computer. I have a lynsys wireless router connected for a wireless network in the house, the desktop is the main computer for this...

Two ways to do this:
Since this is a USB printer and not a network printer you have to create a "share":

1. On the main computer that has the printer attached, go to the printer properties (START, PRINTERS AND FAXES, Right-click on the printer icon and select "sharing"
2. Select the Sharing" tab and select "Share this printer" radial.
3. Enter a short name for the printer in the "Share Name" box, such as: HP1610
4. Save that configuration and remember the "Name" you gave the share.

At each computer on your network:
1. Go to the printer setup sceeen (see #1 above)... and "ADD A PRINTER"
2. Select "Network" printer (not local printer)
3. Select "search for printers and the HP1610 will appear on the list.
4. Select it and follow the instructions from there...

Hope this helps!

configure basic networking parameters using the EIO menu. These and other parameters can also
be configured through HP Web JetAdmin.

HP DesignJet 450c printer issues.

You can purchase a External JetDirect card from any reputable HP (or computer) agent. This will allow you to plug the 450 directly into the network. The problem with the large format printers not being supported is strange to me. I have never had a problem, simply load the drivers and away you go. If the 450 drivers dont work for you, you can select any of the older drivers (750c recomended) and they will work on the 450c

Printer Stopped Printing

If you can get a test page this indicates that there is nothing wrong with your printer there should be a little button on the jetdirect box press that and that will give you the jetdirect settings and IP code. Check this with you computer system as your IP host license may of expired and change the jetdirect to suit.

If the network IP code is still the same the cheapest this is to fit a new jetdirect box if this still doesn't work then I'm affrayed that the machine formatter board has become faulty and would probberly out way the cost to repair it that buy a new machine.

I do hope this has helped you
Thanks J
