Question about HP Photosmart C6100 All-In-One Printer
I used to previously print over my wifi network to my wireless HP Photosmart C6100 printer. However, I had not printed anything for a few weeks and suddenly, when I tried to print yesterday, it did not work at all. I do not understand why. I restarted my computer and the printer (seperately) twice. Sometimes restarting works.
I also ran the troubleshooting for the printer but they don't have any useful advice.
Can you please help?
Thank you so much!
The HP C6100 series has had some ip setting issues. One day my printer didn't print. I checked the ip settings on the printer and got some 6184.108.40.2064 address. I had no clue where this ip number came from, because my router's ip is 192.168.0.1. I went into the settings of my printer and set my ip settings manual. Then I went into the router settings and reserved the ip setting I previously setting on the printer to the printers MAC address. I also set static ip address for each computer on my network. This network response issue started about one year after I purchased the printer. I still lose connection every once in a while, but rebooting the router reconnects the printer and everything sitting in the que to print starts to print. To stablize the issue: upgrade router firmware, set static ip address on your network devices, reserve those ip address in your router, , if all else fails reboot router.

I went through three steps that solved the problem.
1. Make sure you are not using a com port, but are using the hp printer port under the printer set up tab and,
2. Turn off the computer, unplug the router, unplug the cable box. Wat 1 minute. Plug in the cable box, plug in the router, turn on your computer.
3. Run the wireless setup wizard on the printer.
That solved it for me, I hope it helps you, too. Good luck.

Try checking the IP addess of your printer and then reset the IP set in the printer dialog box for the printe on your computer. This can be found by right clicking oing to properties then Port Settings

I had the same problem, and then realized it was because I had changed my wireless router. Going back to the old router fixed it.
