    First thing to do would be to verify the IP address of the printer and make sure all your PC's are using the correct IP. Are you using a print server?

Its a configuration problem on those computers. Go onto one of the computers that the printer is working. Look at the network path to the printer. You can find it out in the control panel under the properties of the printer. Then just go to the other computers and point them to the right printer.

SETTING UP A SHARED NETWORK PRINTER

Any printer that is connected to a computer and is connected on a LAN can be configured so all other computers on the same network can print to this printer. This means the computer with the printer attached to it MUST be booted up at all times when other computers want to access the printer.
You need to install the printer driver on the computer and configure it as a Shared printer.
The other computers on the network need to add this printer to their computer.
Follow these steps to set-up a shared network printer -
1. Connect the printer to the computer and install the printer driver.
2. Open Printers and Faxes - right click on this printer and click Sharing - click Sharing tab and click
Share this printer, and then if you wish you could change the Share name, then click OK
3. Right click on the printer - click Properties - click Print Test Page to confirm printer installation.
Follow these steps to configure the computers on your network :-
1. Open Printers and Faxes - click Add a printer - Next - select a network printer, or a printer attached
to another computer - Next.
2. Select Browser for a printer - Next
3. Click on and expand the Microsoft Windows Network down to the computer with the printer - Next
4. Select Yes for - Use this printer as the default printer - Next - Finish
5. Right click on the printer - click Properties - click Print Test Page to confirm printer installation.

Xerox Work Centre 7545 won't print from my computer


The problem may lie in the print server, and not your pc. Have an IT administrator check the drivers and ports.

Dell 2155cn Installs without error, but won't print


Most router (DHCP servicer) issue an IP to any device on the network, is your PC on the the same subset of the network? Can you ping the printer? Check your printer and device property, make sure you have the same IP address and you're on the same subset.

The printer won't print any print jobs sent to it. When checking it shows that it is off-Line and I have tryed retyping my network password into it with no results. I end up going back into it and...


Hi

1. This can happen if the printer is set to "USE PRINTER OFFLINE" under printer menu.
(Goto Printer & faxes+double click your printer+check in the printer menu)

2. The usb cable may be bad and needs to be replaced.

3. Try to use other USB port on your computer. (This will install another printer driver but will work)

4. Your USB port on your printer may be bad (This requires your Printer's formatter replacement)

Try step 1, 2 & 3 first to rule out the problem.

Is it possible to install the Post Script drivers for a Laserjet 5000 printer? Also how can I use that printer within my network to print from other PC's


Yes, hp provides a Universal Postcript Driver.

1) Go to hp.com and click on Support & Drivers at the top of the home page. In Step 1, select Dowload Drivers & Software. In Step 2, Type into the window LJ5000 and click Go.

2) Select Laserjet 5000

3) Select your operating system, e.g. Windows XP, or Vista, etc.

4) Scroll down to the driver tables. Look for Universal Postscript Driver for Windows and click on Download.

5) Install the driver.

As for the network, I assume this is a Laserjet 5000, NOT a 5000N (which means it has an Embedded network card inside). If this is the case, you will need to add a JetDirect card into the printer. Then you will be able to install it to the network and print from other PCs.

On the other hand, if yours IS a network printer, you will merely need to install the printer to your network.

1) Plug you network cable into the printer.
2) Power the printer on.
3) After the printer comes to READY, wait for about 3 minutes.
4) Go to the printer's onboard menu and scroll to INFORMATION and select that menu.
5) Scroll down to "PRINT CONFIGURATION PAGE".
6) On the Config Page, look for the Embedded JetDirect page, and look in the left column for IP Address. It should be from your network.
7) Look next for Configured by: DHCP.

8) If you go to a PC that is on the same network, type the IP address for the config page into the web browser address window and press Enter key. You should see your printer "Laserjet 5000", and can from here do all knids of settings if you choose.

You will need to install the driver on each PC, or install the driver onto the network server as well.

Can i add my canon pixma 240 to a wireless network


Hi,
Your printer does not have ethernet or wireless adaptor and therefore it cannot be connected directly to your network.
Basically, you have two options. The first is to install it on a pc that will be always on and all the other computers in the network will be able to print through that. You just have to share that printer. Rightl click on your printer, select properties and then under the share tab click to share your printer.
The other option (if you are printing all the time) is to buy a print server. A print server is a device that is between the network router and the printer. You connect the usb cable to the print server and then the print server on the router. This way your printer will become available to the entire network.

Regards,
nicolasiac

Toshiba Estudio166 networking issue


Toshiba es166 is local USB printer. You can print from designated PC and you have to share printer if you want to print from other printer in your network. Because of low machine memory (16Mb) it could be some conflicts,if you use more than 2 PC in network. That is why Toshiba has es167 model on which you can add network print controller. You can also use USB hub if you want to print from more PC's. (only 2 brands of USB hubs provide this, see toshiba site)

Wireless printing


The MP830 does not include the ability to do Wireless Network printing. You can however, connect this printer to one of your Windows or Mac PCs and share it on the network, which is wireless, therefore accomplishing the same thing.

1) Install the Drivers and Software that came with your Printer.
2) Go to the Control Panel > Printers & Faxes
3) Right-click your printer and click "Sharing"
4) Choose Share this Printer, and give it a name.
5) You can then on, use the Add Printer Wizard on any other Windows PC and install it by searching for network printers.

Step 1 is the same for Mac
2) Go to System Preferences > Sharing
3) Check the box for Printer Sharing
4) Any Mac on the network can see it!!
5) Added treat: go to http://apple.com/bonjour to install bonjour for Windows, using this software you can print using any Mac printer on any PC
