Tip

Set up a Wireless printer on your Router for use with a wired PC


First install the Wireless printer driver using the Wizard by connecting either the Ethernet cable to the router during the install process when asked this will set up your wireless laptop with the correct printer port based on the Wireless Node Name it will also use the printers inbuilt MAC address. This is standard install and will work for all your Wireless PC's however if you have a Wired (ethernet) PC connected to your Router this process will not work a wireless port will not work with a wired computer.

Follow my 3 steps below to set up standard IP ports for Wired PC's also connected to your Router.

STEP 1: Find your MAC address for the wireless printer (all types of Network Cards will have one so this is no different) this will either be found under the LCD control panel or may even be printer on the bottom of the printer or Print server if it is seperate set this MAC address with an IP address as a reservation in your admin panel of your router 192.168.0.10 in this example.

You can normally enter your Router this using 192.168.0.1 typed in your browser (not the search engine) as all routers are different check here for your make and model http://www.routerpasswords.com if you can't find the MAC address try using ipconfig /all from them command prompt it will be the physical address aka the MAC address

STEP 2:
Install the Printer as a USB printer port by connecting the USB cable to the PC you want the wired printer driver installed on when finished go to the printer driver properties for the driver you have just added, click the port tab and click add standard IP port as shown below, then disconnect the USB lead this is only required to make sure the correct inf file is used on the driver install and connect your Ethernet cable from you computers NIC to a spare RJ45 socket on the Router.

STEP 3: To check that the Printer has the correct IP address then test using the tracert OR ping command for the IP address that you have reserved on your router, this is a necessary step otherwise when the lease expires it may take another IP address and your Printer driver will not work unless your printer has the reserved address, it will throw a printer error.

c:ping 192.168.0.10

(this example shows a Standard TCP/IP Port for a Brother DCP-340CW)

Also check in your routers admin panel to see if the Wireless Printer is set up with the correct IP and MAC address, if you still can't find it eliminate your known MAC addresses from all your network cards the one left will be your Printer Server NIC in your Wireless Printer.

If you have setup the incorrect IP and or MAC address you will get this window when you try to add the TCP/IP port

My canon mp240 wont scan or print. i have installed the cd on my mac. following all the instructions. i previously was using another canon printer with this mac. i cannot seem to add a new printer to...


That is alright , you need to re-install the drivers for it to work, shut down both machine, and connect the printer to the system, and power them back on, the system will recognize the printer it will also ask for the drivers please follow the instructions.

P1005 hp printer windows vista will not recognise


hmmmm i would first make sure all window vista driver are in first. then try installing the cd. or if you want to try the driver only and not all the extra software...

1st uninstall the driver and software and do not connect the printer. until it asks you.

2nd put the factory cd for the printer but do not let it run automatically. cancel the installation.

3 you go to the control panel add printer, etc. have look for the driver and say "have cd" or go to the cd drive where the vista folder is holding the driver file.

i know this can be tidious but its kinda old school for installing a driver instead of letting the cd do it automatically have the computer find the driver on the cd first. dont add all the extra software. try it and see if it works then try to add all the extra software.

personaly i think sometimes the vista updates stuff where it screws with the drivers and then your computer does not know what its looking for. i hope this kinda helps. sorry for your mishap.

have you also tried connecting to all the usb slots?

How come my printer icon is not in the corner of my start menu? (like by the clock and the battery level and other small icons in the right corner) I cannot get my printer to print whatsoever.


if the printer is not added then print will not work.
1st you need to add the printer to your system
go to
Start / Printers and Faxes / add printers on the left panel and add the printer of yours.) if already configured

Ensure that the printer is connected and switched on
Else...
if the system asks for the driver then insert the CD of the printer in the CD drive and let the printer be configured.
all the best...pls leave a feedback fro this solution...else let me know...
Thks and regards

Samsung ML-2510 will not print from MAC OS on Macbook


Hi, sorry to hear you are having problems,
OK, first of all, you can stop worrying about solution #3, this printer is a USB or Parallel, there is no networking on this printer so no possibility of an AppleTalk connection.
You say you have downloaded the latest version of the driver from the Samsung website.
And, the Mac is connected DIRECTLY to the printer via USB.... ( It won't work if it's connected to a PC and then shared.. well it might work but I have not been able to make this kind of connection work...)
Well, if this is the case and you are unable to print while the PC prints fine, I expect that it is over the Parallel port or do you plug and un-plug between the Mac and PC...
It might be that the printer needs to reset after switching between the Mac and the PC, Shut off the Printer, I mean really, shut it down, unplug it for 30 seconds then connect it to the Mac and restart the Mac and start up the printer....
If it still does not work, do you have another Mac you can connect to for testing?
Also, the first test should not be FireFox, open the Text Edit app and type ( TEST ) and just print that...
Give that a whirl..

I have a hp deskjet f2180 all in one printer scanner copier we have tried to add to my lap top but the lap top does not recognise the hp deskjet f2180 and we dont know what else is compatable with


What operating system are you running on your laptop? This model only supports Windows 2000/XP/Vista and Mac OS/X. Make sure you have installed the printer USB drivers (included on the printer software CD) first. If you are connecting the printer directly to the laptop, all you should then need to do is connect the printer to the mains power, turn it on, and connect the USB cable between the printer and the laptop. If you are connecting to a printer that is connected to another computer, you mus make sure printer sharing is enabled on the computer the printer is physically connected to.

I may be able to provide a better solution if you can provide more information on your Laptop operating system and how the printer will be connected.
