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.

Ethernet on DELL 4550 with TP-link doesn't work


Hi there,

pinging 127.0.0.1 just tells you that your network card is operational and reacheable by your system.

I have a couple of suggestions - check them out and let me know what you found out.

  • Go to Network Connections / Local Area Connection / General Tab / Properties / Internet Protocol (TCPIP) (from the list)/ Properties. Are all settings set to "Obtain automatacally..."?
  • Is your operating system Windows XP Home or Professional (with Service Pack 2 installed)?
  • Have you installed the AirPort Utility software that came on the CD? (Check Start > All Programs > AirPort)
  • You have to have the software installed in order to setup the router.
  • What is your internet connection: Cable or DSL?
  • Take a look at this document "Designing AirPort Networks" which is also on the CD that came with the device. If you don't have it, here is the download (link). Go to page 25 and follow the instructions for PPPoE (if you have DSL service) or DHCP (if you have cable service).

Let me know how that works for you and if you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to look further into that if this did not work for you.

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.

Trouble connecting wireless


first thing to do is to dissable the ethernet connection in network connections on your notebook so as the ip address does not conflict.

assuming it's XP and assuming DHCP is enabled in the router settings, right click on your wireless conection in network connections, properties>TCP/IP line, highlight it and then click properties again, then ensure obtain an ip address automatically is ticked, apply and ok, close window.

If neccasary run the wireless network wizard in new connections in network connections.

Open internet explorer>tools>internet options>connections tab and ensure that 'never dial a connection' is ticked, ok and close IE.
Open IE and click refresh a few times.

Unable to detect my router


This is because your router is setting your pc at a different IP address than your original modem. Make sure router is set to enable DHCP which gives out an automatic ip address and check your wireless card and network cards are set to obtain ip address automatically. It may take a few re-starts to get on the internet as your systems will need to clear their previous DNS settings. Also i assume you have set up the home network wizard (XP) as you are now using a router and not a direct modem. Also try Start>Run, then type ipconfig /flushdns then press enter.
