How connect a tcp ip printer.


Hi Kumar,
You can modify or change port in the printer driver to connect it through LAN cable. Please notice whether you use static or dynamic ip address. Please follow below step.

In the following step we will modify your existing USB connection. Check it out!

Step:
  • Open printer driver list.
  • Right click on the printer drive name (e.g Canon IR2270).
  • Select Properties.
  • Click Ports tab.
  • Click Add Port, then select Standard TCP/IP Port.
  • Click New Port.
  • Click Next on add port wizard menu.
  • Type IP Address (for static ip setting) or Printer Name (DHCP), then click Next (computer will search the printer).
  • When the printer has been found, finish the wizard.
  • Close Add Port menu.
  • Now you have new port represented by IP Address or Printer Name (with checked box active) in port list .
  • Click Apply.
Bingo! Now your printer ready to print via LAN. Sometimes printing right after setting this new port not always succeed. Don't be panic. Restart both of printer and the computer.
Next time you want to connect the printer via USB port so you change port back to USB. Just simply check on the check box next to USB Port in port list and click apply. You may need to restart both printer and computer too :)

Have a nice day!

Canon mp620 not connecting to my wifi laptop


This could happen if the port that you are using is not the right one.

When you are using a printer wireless, you need to use the Standard TCP/IP port, to setup a printer port, do the following

Right click on printer icon, select properties
Click on Add port, select new port
Enter the IP address of the printer, this can be obtained by printing the settings page from the printer.

Note: please setup a static IP for your printer, else everytime you restart you may endup with a new IP

Let me know if this works,

Take Off Sleep Mode


(same response posted in another thread)

The issue is NOT the sleep mode)/

My first solotution was to reinstall the printer as a new printer. But that is uncessary. The fix is as easy as changing the IP address the in Port.

The problem is the the IP address for your wirelss is not static. and when it changes, the printer does not recognize the new IP address. When this occurs. go the the printer folder ( in the control panel) and click on 'add new priter'. Then select 'add a network wirless printer . NO NEED TO INSTALL THE PRINTER...you just want to see the IP address.

Note the IP address.

GO to the printer, click on the right mouse and select 'properties'
Click on Port
You will see the current port already highlighted.
Click on ' configure port' and change the IP address under "printer name or IP address.
Click OK.
Problem solved

Good luck.
