Question about NetGear GS605 5x1000 Mbps Networking Switch

1 Answer

I have an ethernet cable coming into one of my offices that is coming off a switch at my front desk. I have an HP Office jet all in one printer and a computer in the office that I'm having problems with. I wanted to put the printer on the network. It works wirelessly with the ethernet cable plugged in to the printer. I said "a ha, I'll buy a switch and solve that problem". It did not! The computer worked but nothing happened to the printer. The light didn't even come on on the switch. I guess I don't quite understand why it doesn't work. Help! I have the GS605 5X1000 switch.

SOURCE: not able to connect to the internet

Please list the model of the network hub you are using.  Also is a "hub/switch" or a routher.  Also are you using a DSL or Cable internet connection?  Please provide a little more details.

SOURCE: no connection

the printer needs an IP address from dhcp server or in other words, the router. the switch just acts as a kind of repeater on network segment.

You must configure the other PCs in the same IP range of the netgear. fexample: if the netgear ip adress is 10.0.0.1 then the other PC should have an IP like 10.0.0.x (x = any number from 2 to 254)

SOURCE: use two computers with one printer

Printer Sharing (This is good for Windows 2000, XP and Vista)
Sharing will be very easy if your network is working.
You need to consider the computer where the printer connected as the "Host" and the other computer that wants to print to that printer as the "Client".
Before you do such sharing, you need to acquire each computer's IP address.
You can do it by accessing MSDOS Prompt and typing in ipconfig/all. Write down your IP addresses and the share name on a paper.
For your Host:
Install the driver, make sure that you can print on direct bi-directional connection (such as USB).
Go to Control Panel >Printers and Faxes* >Sharing >Share this printer >Type in your share name, good example is PRINTER (this is case sensitive).
For your Client:
Install the driver, make sure that you can print, same with the Host.
Go to Control Panel >Printers and Faxes* >Properties >Ports >Add Port >Add local port type in \\ (the IP Addressof the Host) \ (share name), click OK.
ex. \\192.168.1.3\PRINTER (watch your backslash, no spaces)
*Term used is "Printers" for Windows Vista and Windows 2000

I have an hp 1320 laser jet printer but it cant be recognized by all the computers in my office. i have tried to change both usb and parallel cables but nothing is happening . what could be the problem?...


Have you connected it via Ethernet and installed the software on your office's server? If not then you will have to set it up as a USB or parallel on one pc and then all the other computers on the network will have to print to the IP address on the network of the PC it is connected to and then set up each machine to access that printer.

I had to have work done on my computer. Then, when I tried to use the printer, it would not turn on, i received an error message that said I should rerun the set up program. HOwever, I can not find the CD....


Go to www.hp.com click on the download support tab, enter your printer model ... Office Jet 6500 ... when you get to the nuts and bolts of it, select your OS and download your driver software. I suggest you save it to the desktop so it will be easy to find.

I just got drivers for my Desk-jet less than 30 minutes ago ... this is the process I used.

I just bought a hp office jet 4540 and im trying to figure out a way to fax.I have a wireless hookup please help my computer is a compac pasario running windows vista.


The software you installed from the HP CD-ROM should let you "print" and then select the "FAX" component of your Office Jet as the output device.

Of course, you need a telephone-cable between your Office Jet and a working telephone-jack, in order to actually "send" over a telephone-line.
