Question about HP Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Does anyone here know much about port forwarding on a computer? My HP laptop was doing just fine until a few days ago when I installed an HP printer and received a fatal error after installation. I then noticed that my bit torrent sites wouldn't allow downloads due to the message "listen port is unknown" along with a grey light. I hope there is someone out there familiar with my problem and who can walk me through the solution. Thanks so much to all of you who take the time to provide valuable advice to those of us who run into trouble. I'm sure "thank you" isn't said enough. Thanks again!

Port fowarding is usually done on your router's firewall, or on your computers software firewall. This sounds like the installer messed with firewall settings on your pc itself.

Check your torrent client to see what ports it wants open, and then make sure your software firewall isnt blocking the program from the net, or those ports.

If you are trying to access the DVR server from outside your network, you need to use port forward, in that way you will use your DVR client to connect to the router's public IP, the router will be forwarding the port the video system use to the computer, just configure the computer's IP in the router's port forwarding configuration.

My HP Deskjet F380 has the latest printing software installed; it spools and is attached to my laptop in the correct USB port; but it doesn't print. The message is "no connection." It printed...


Verify that the USB connection is fully inserted in the back of the printer itself. If all is well there, try to think if you've run any updates on your laptop recently, or installed any new software that could be conflicting. If yes, try removing the new software or recent updates, and try a test print. If this still does not work, try disconnecting the printer, powering down your machine, starting it back up and then reconnecting the printer to the USB port. Sometimes you have have a glitch in the USB port that causes your computer to stop recognizing a device seemingly out of nowhere. If none of the above seems to help, it might be as simple as a USB cable that's become faulty. Hope this helps!

Brothers MFC490CW won't print


try and shut down the printer by holding down the power button for a few seconds, then turn it back on. You can also try rebooting the router. You have to do that sometimes because it has the automatic sleep mode.

Usb malfunction


The USB ports have gone bad. Just because they show up in device manager as being recognized does not mean they are working correctly. They are controlled by chips onthe motherboard and if one of those chips has gone bad, then they just won't work. The cheapest solution would be to purchase a USB card and install it, bypassing the onboard ports. Thanks and please take a moment to give this solution a rating of fixya. Thanks! :c)

HP F4180 Printer printing small


Hi Lady Luxe,

Try running the Manual Uninstall solution (click link below):
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/genericDocument?docname=c00501015&cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en&jumpid=reg_R1002_USEN

Then run the HP Installer from your disk (v. 8.0). You may want to also restart your Mac after installation is successful (make sure you complete the Setup Assistant - don't skip it!).

Try to scan from the glass scanner bed to see that your connection is solid. Try to print now and it should be fine.
