Hi, sorry for late answer, I have been offline for a while.

Connect RJ45 to router and parallel to computer
You need to download Software here first selecting 300x and windows version.
Then you can use the HP JetDirect Wireless Setup Wizard
to setup your printer on network.
You may also be required to install printer drivers, to do this use printer CD or download them from the Internet.

How do I set up an HP JetDirect 170X Print Server with Windows 8.1 Operating System?


Connect the printer to the print server. Push the test button on the test button on the print server. Two pages will print. One of the pages will contain the IP address for the print server. Connect the print server to the router. Now you need to go to the Control Panel and select "Devices and Printers". Select "Add a Printer". When it searches for a printer, select "The printer I want isn't listed". Next, select "Add a printer using TCP/IP address or hostname" and click "Next". Now, enter the IP address from the test print and click next. That will do it.

Why would my Trendnet Print server TE100-P1U not be seen by all computers on the network even though it can be pinged. I can't install it on these computers even though it can be pinged


May requires software loaded on every computer - software that will create the non-std print server "port".
More expensive print servers like the HP jetdirect print server use std tcp/ip ports.

Connect the print server to the router with an ethernet cable and connect the server to the printer. Find the IP address for the printer/server by pushing the "test" button on the print server. The IP address will be listed on the paper printed during the test.

Trouble with wireless connection JetDirect ew2400 on Dlink DIR855


I found that the EW2400 Jetdirect will not work UNLESS you use WEP security. I have tried several times setting up using the WPA, but with no luck. Once I changed my wireless router to WEP and configured the EW2400 with the WEP settings, it worked with no issues - hope this helps

HP750c Plus, with Jetdirect j2552a or j4100n not working.


Here's a few troubleshooting steps that should help you out.

1. Are you getting a link light? If not, check the cable and the switch - if these are OK then you have a bad JetDirect.

2. Print a test sheet from the 750 and check the IP configuration. Be sure that you have an IP address that is on the same subnet as the computer you want to print from. If not, then you either need to configure an appropriate static IP or configure DHCP for the MIO and make sure it is working.

3. Once you have the IP worked out, try to ping the MIO from your PC. You can also try to connect to the MIO using the embedded web server if the firmware is recent enough. If either of these work then you should be in good shape. Try to re-install and see if it works.

One last thing, if you are printing directly to the plotter from the client computer without using a print server then one part of the setup is non-intuitive. When you are asked if the printer is local or network, you have to select "local" even though this is clearly not the case. Then when you get to choose a port, create a new TCP port.

Good luck and if the above doesn't help, post an update and we'll take it from there.

I am not sure if you need the setup.exe file to configure the JetDirect 170x.If you take a look the manual for the JetDirect 170x (http://bizsupport1.austin.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c00758101/c00758101.pdf) it mentions that this is a "Test" button on the back of the print server. If you press that button when the printer is connect, then it should print out a configuration page. The configuration page will have an IP address that you can browse to with Internet Explorer to configure the JetDirect.

My HP office Jet 5610 all in one only prints on the left side.


First try printing directly from the PC to the printer without using the JD. If the problem persists, then factory reset the print server and reinstall the appropriate print drivers onto it before reconnecting to it.
