Question about HP LaserJet 2300 Printer

Open Question

I have an hp laserjet 2300d printer connected to a windows xp(32bit) pc and shared to allow another windows xp pc to connect to the printer. No matter how i have the second pc connect to the printer (i.e as a network printer or configure a local port pointing to the unc name of the printer and connecting it as a local printer) it slows the whole pc down and printing takes an absolute age.

SOURCE: windows xp with not recongise HP Laserjet 6p when plugged into a usb port

To my knowledge, the 6P isn't a USB printer, it's parallel port only. Are you using a USB / parallel port adapter? If so, I believe that's the root of your problems - the adapter.

Try hooking it directly to the parallel port (shut the PC and printer down before doing so).

Upon restart, Windows will detect it, and may or may not "know" the model, so you may have to choose it from the dropdown boxes.

If it works when directly connected, you will need to either locate drivers for the adapter (if any), or manually configure it under the printer port properties.

If you need more help, let me know. These are great little printers - once you get them to work!

SOURCE: I would like to network

What model of HP LaserJet do you have?
You will have to go into the configuration menu on the printer itself and set up the network connection. 
I don't know what model you have, but here is a generic answer
Press the Menu Right until you find the HP MIO Menu - Select it. Next press the Item right button until you find the Cfg Network Card = No, - make it say yes by pushing the value right button, then push select to put an asterisk ( * ) next to it. Then press the item right button until you find Cfg TCP/IP = No, - make it say yes by pushing the value right button, then push select to put an asterisk ( * ) next to it. (assuming you are on a basic network) Last press the item right button and insert the following information.
IP Address: Not one already in use - generally 192.168.1.XXX (where XXX is some number between 2 - 253) Subnet Mask: generally 255.255.255.0 Gateway IP Address: Generally 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.1.0 or 192.168.1.254
Once you give it this information, print out the config page and it should be there. If this doesn't work, or you don't know how to find those numbers, I would be glad to help you further.

SOURCE: HP Laser 4L driver for USB port

Not all USB adapters are the same, you need the one that is made for your printer, I would try a different adapter before going too deep, because when you plug it in your computer should see it even without drivers.

SOURCE: HP Laserjet 4050Tn can't be found by network computers (XP)

To install the HP as a network printer you need to do the following -
1. Configure the HP's IP address so it matches the IP range of your network. eg if your IP's are 192.168.0.xxx then set the HP to a high number say 100.
2. Install the HP printer driver on your computer/s using the LPT printer port.
3. Connect the printer to the network hub/router and power up the printer.
4. Click on Printers an Faxes - right click on the HP printer and click on Properties.
5. Click on Ports and click on Add Port.
6. In available ports - click on Standart TCP/IP Port and then Configure port.
7. Tick the IP box and type in the IP address of the HP's IP address.
8. Click OK and tick Enable bidirectional support and then OK

You need to setup the HP printer the same way on every computer on your network.
You can now print from any computer on your network

Hi,

With that, you need to install the printer into your windows 7 computer and windows vista computer.
Even though the printer is installed into your windows xp computer wirelessly and set up as shared printer, you still need to install it on to your other computer because you need to install the driver and other printer's software to maximize the features.

Since the printer is already connected, you just need to run the appropriate installation package, the one that's compatible with your Operating System, and install it via Wireless or via Network. For the correct installation package. You can download it from the hp website and check the Support and Driver's section.

Cheers!

I have a HP Laserjet 1012 desktop printer. Are there any windows XP 64 drivers that will allow this printer to work with a XP 64 system?


Welcome to FixYa!

HP Laserjet 1012 does not have a driver for XP 64bit.
HP also does not have driver for Windows 7 32bit and 64bit with this particular printer.
They are urging their consumers to upgrade the printer(s) to a compatible operating system.

TIP: If you are going to install this printer to a Windows 7 operating system, try to using the Vista drivers and install it using the compatibility mode feature of Windows 7.

Thank you for using FixYa!
Keep me posted.

Instal only one printer driver on the PC it is physically connected to. Preferably the Windows 7 PC (Latest OS). Unshare the printer, remove drivers from other PC's., then reboot al PC,s and re-share the printer. The PC's sharing should allow the Windows 7 PC to use it's driver, although they may request a disc for basic information about the printer.

Cannot print on shared printer


I had the same problem with HP 1018 printer, when I had two computers connected to a domain and had Windows XP SP3 on them and when I shared the printer on one of them - I could only print from the network if the user belonged to the Local Administrators group on the host/server computer. Once the network user is removed from Administrators - the print jobs are stuck in print queue. I used the "HP LaserJet Host Based Print Driver Package" that is on HP web site for HP laserjet 1018 printer.
Then I tried to use a different driver for that printer and was successful with driver for HP LaserJet 1020. After forcing that printer to use the 1020 drivers, the regular users were able to print to that printer.

HP laserJet 3055 network connection


HOW TO CONNECT HP 3055 TO ROUTER/WIRELESS NETWORK. WINDOWS XP/WINDOWS VISTA.

I have just finished successfully connecting my HP 3055 to my router and using it over wireless on 2 computers, one with windows XP SP2 and one with VISTA.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR CONNECTING HP 3055 ON XP:

FIRST CONNECT THE PRINTER TO THE ROUTER WITH A ETHERNET CABLE. FIND OUT THE IP ADDRESS OF YOUR PRINTER. By me it was 192.168.0.66

Go to CONTROL PANEL and open "PRINTERS AND FAXES". on the top left choose "ADD A PRINTER" click "NEXT".

In the "LOCAL OR NETWORK PRINTER" window, choose "LOCAL PRINTER ATTACHED TO THIS COMPUTER" and uncheck "AUTOMATICALLY DETECT"... click "NEXT".

In the "SELECT A PRINTER PORT" window click the radio button "CREATE A NEW PORT", click the down arrow and choose "STANDARD TCP/IP PORT".

In the window that pops up click "NEXT"

In the ADD PORT window, where it says "PRINTER NAME OR IP ADDRESS, type in your printers IP address, by me it was 192.168.0.66. The bottom line will fill in automatically. Click "NEXT".

In the "INSTALL PRINTER SOFTWARE" window, if you have the disk just choose "HAVE DISK" and install from there. If not, in the left column choose "HP" and in the right column choose "HP LASERJET 3050" (by me it showed up in the list, you can download the driver from here http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareIndex.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodNameId=1140780&prodTypeId=18972&prodSeriesId=1161389&swLang=8&taskId=135&swEnvOID=228

click "NEXT"

In the "NAME YOUR PRINTER" window, choose a name and also choose if you want to set it as the default printer (recommended) Click "NEXT"

In the next window choose whether or not you want to share the printer, and if you do assign a printer name. Click NEXT. The next window is optional if you want to make a name, you can just click NEXT and your done! Print a test page to make sure that all is fine.
