Question about Canon PIXMA MP830 All-In-One InkJet Printer
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...
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
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.
