Hello ZIMKHAN

Please, correct me if I am wrong. Do you mean that you believe there is an IP conflict or IP assignment issue w/ your PP9100 N?

If the IP address of the printer keeps changing then it is most likely not remaining powered on all the time AND it is configured for "dynamic" IP assignment by your router (as opposed to a "static" (unchanging) IP address).

This can be remedied by assigning a static IP address to your printer (or the print server device it is connected to). This is usually done at the control panel of your printer or through the print server device software.

If you are not in a Domain or "larger network", the IP address of the printer or print server device should be w/in the same subnet as the rest of the nodes on your LAN.

I have a few questions for you:

(01) Is your printer connected to a "print server" or are you using its on-board Ethernet port?

This printer model is "network ready". That is what the "N" stands for in the printer model number. I would like to make sure that you are using the printer's Ethernet connection and not a print server device.

(02) Is the "Crown Port+" you referred to your router?

(03) Please, provide the manufacturer and model number of your router.

(04) Please, provide the manufacturer and model number of the "Crown Port+" device you referred to (if it is different than your router).

(05) If you are not using the printer's Ethernet port but are using a print server device instead, please, provide us w/ the manufacturer and model number of that device.

Please, click on THIS link. You will find the documentation that is available for this printer on this web site.

Please, download the Installation Guide (document name: 9100g_e.pdf) and refer to page 52 for instructions on setting up your printer for networking in a "Windows" environment.

This, of course, is assuming that yours is a "Windows" networking environment. If it is not, please, let us know what operating systems are installed on the computers w/in your LAN.

Setting up (HP Jetdirect print server) Printers on a network


To install the HP printers with a built-in Jetdirect print server as a network printer you need to do the following -
1. Configure the HP's IP address using the printer's Menu options.
Enable the Network and configure the Network settings 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, set the Subnet Mask to 255.255.255.0
2. Install the HP printer driver on your computer/s using the LPT printer port.
3. Connect the printer to the network hub/router with a LAN cable 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 Standard 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 install the printer driver and configure the TCP/IP port for HP printer the same way on every computer on your network.
Now any computer on your network can print to this printer.

For detailed instructions on configuring the Jetdirect card, go to this WEB site.

INSTALLING A NETWORK PRINTER These instructions generally apply to all network printers with built-in network cards (print servers) such as HP LaserJet printers, IBM Infoprint laser printers etc. This example is for a network HP LaserJet printer. To install a HP printer (with built-in Jetdirect print server) as a network printer on a wireless network . You need to do the following -
1. Open the printer\'s menu and enable the Network Card - these print servers use a static IP address therefore, configure the IP address of the network card so it matches the IP range of your network. Eg. If your IP\'s are 192.168.0.xxx then set the network card to a high number say 100. (This is to prevent a conflict with the router issuing the same IP address to a computer on your network). Then set the Subnet Mask IP address to 255.255.255.0 If you have a wireless router then check the IP address range that the router issues to the computers on your network and configure the static IP address in the printer\'s network configuration accordingly.
2. Install the HP printer driver on your computer/s using the LPT printer port.
3. Connect the printer with a LAN cable to the network hub/router.
4. Click on Printers and 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 Standard TCP/IP Port and then Configure port.
7. Tick the IP box and type in the IP address of the HP\'s printer IP address.
8. Click OK and tick Enable bi-directional support and then OK
9. Remove the printer cable, then do a test print to see if the printer prints correctly.
Install the HP printer driver on every computer on your network and configure the printer\'s TCP/IP port as previously detailed. Do a test print page to check the printer.
You can now print from any computer on your network.

Where is IP address for the MFC-7220 printer


Network printers do not have a set IP address, you need to configure the printer with an IP address that uses the same range of IP addresses as your network.
The IP configuration is normally done through the printer's Menu on the printer's buttons.
If your are using a network IP range 192.168.0.*** that your wireless router issues automatically then select a fixed IP address on your printer above the number of computers that is installed on your network. (ie if you have 10 computers the make the printer's fixed IP address say 192.168.0.30) so the wireless router cannot issue a conflicting IP address.
When you install the printer driver on each computer then go to the Printer Properties - Port tab - click Add Port - IP port and enter the printer's fixed IP address and printer name.
Do a test print to check if your computer connects to the network printer.

I am on a network with a brand new HP 8500. I have searched for the printer and my laptop doesn't pick it up. What amI missing?


Have you checked that the IP range for the printer is on the same IP range for your network? you could always cold reset the printer which will reset the network card back to zero's. You attach it to the network and your server should issue an IP address via DHCP. You should be able to see it on the network then.If not, the jetdirect network card may be at fault.Has the printer got a Jetdirect network card installed?

Brother HL-4040CN successfully installed but shows offline


I assume it's turned on and connected to the router.
Sometimes with DHCP, the IP address on the printer will change. I end up going into the router table to see what IP addresses are assigned where. Invariably I'll find my network printer has changed. Find the printer and write it down.

In Windows, Go into Printers> choose the Brother and right click to check Properties. Look for Ports and change the IP address as needed. It will come back online.

Brand new Brother MFC-685CW won't print via wireless


First, I would recommend NOT trying to manually install this printer by using the add printer wizard in windows and selecting the the port and drivers to use. I would use the install cd to set this all up, it makes setting up this printer MUCH easier. If you are unable to use the install cd then get the IP address for the printer from your router admin page then with the printer "installed" go into the printer properties, go into the port, add a port, and instead of using a printer name just type the IP address for the printer in. Also for any networked printer make sure you don't have a firewall blocking it (this would include making sure that if the printer requires a port opened in the router that all requests for that port are routed to the IP address of the printer).
