Dell 3000cn Network Connection not working

Unable to get network connection working - on printer settings report Ethernet Settings show as Unknown (Auto). Printer works fine on USB but does nothing when connected via ethernet cable - lights do not even flash on router to show there's a connection between the two

    Tried all that before - when connecting ethernet port on printer to router there should at least be some form of connection between the 2 - no lights flash on router. Beginning to wonder if printer even has a live ethernet port.

First of, the ethernet must be 'on'. If dhcp available, set it to auto (or dhcp.. anyways..) and let it reboot, just in case :)
if not, try setting the IP-setting yourself. They should be somewhat similar to the settings on your local computer(s).

To add the printer to your computer, select 'Local' printer and specify 'tcp/ip' as which port its connected to. In the new window the ip to the printer should be entered. :) (at least for XP this is..)

Hope this gave you the correct solution..

    Perhaps a firmware upgrade could fix things?

We just got two brother hl 2170w printers from a lab across campus, they were configured for a wireless connection and now we are trying to connect them to the network via a wired connection. the test page...


hi there, this should work for you:

When you disconnect an Ethernet cable from the printer, wireless network will be enabled.
On the other hand, when the Ethernet cable is connected to the printer, wired network is enabled.

If you press the Go button for approx. 13 seconds, the network setting page will be printed out. Then release the Go button, wired network will be switched to wireless network even if the Ethernet cable is still connected.

You can then verify your network settings and change between wired and wireless setups.

Unable to connect Dell 3000cn to wireless network (cable from printer to Linksys router). Printer shows ICP address, laptops set to share files, but computers do not "see" printer at all. Ideas?


The printer driver needs to be installed and the printer port changed from LPT1 or USB to a TCP/IP port.
Please refer to my tip on Setting up HP network printer. the principles are the same for setting up network printers with a print server.

How can I tell how many prints have been done on my dell 3000cn printer


All of the following is done on the Printer, not your computer keyboard.
Press the printer's Menu button. Then press the down arrow until Configure appears. Press return. Press the down arrow until Reports appears. Press Return. Press the down arrow until Printer Settings appears. Press return again. You will now get a report sheet printed which will include the Total number of sheets printed, the total Colour sheets and the total B/W sheets plus other information.

Ricoh Aficio 1027 network connection problem with vista x86


It will not work to directly connect a network cable directly from the network port of the printer directly to your computer. You will have to use a cross-over cable and configure your TCP/IP settings manually. However, to utilize network printing and have internet access, you will want to get a router and connect your modem to the ethernet port of the router, then a network cable from pc to switch port on router, and a network cable from printer to a differnt switch port on router. Most consumer routers have a built in 4-port switch, so that should allow enough connections. You may want to consult a local IT company or Ricoh dealer for the rest of the setup. This will allow the framework for network printing and/or scanning.

Printer hooked up right but reads on the screen check network connection


If the unit states check network connection:
Check the network settings: additional functions, report settings, network, user data list, yes. Check the settings shown here. update and power cycle the unit if needed. You much power cycle after changing IP settings.
Examine the network cable. Look for link lights on the unit and where it connects to the network. Consider also taking the network cable and plug it into another device. If the other device cannot access your network, you know that it is the network side. If the other device works fine, you know that you have an issue on the copier.
