HP 7280 interrupts Internet

Before I proceed with your suggestion, do I need to remove Ping blocking from my router and do you want me to connect wirelessly or with ethernet cable?
I will have to purchase a cable to otherwise.
Thanks for you help so far.

Wirelessly at first. The results of this will determine whether or not you need to connect via an ethernet cable. Note however, if you've never connected to this router via an ethernet cable, it's very likely that it's simply not correctly setup for this. You can of course, also try connecting the printer via an ethernet cable and monitor whether or not the problem persists (this will also help allow you to determine the source of the problem).

Printer is offline

What type of printer are you having a problem with? Is it on and do you see any error messages on the printer? How is it connected to the computer? Do you have the driver installed? Some printers need to have the driver installed with a USB connection before moving to a network install. (For all-in-ones, the driver/software must be installed before you connect the data cable.)

If a wired connection, try new cables (fully seated) and different ports. If it is a USB connection, try a direct connection if the printer is connected to a USB hub or print server. Make sure that the cord is 6' or shorter. Check if other devices work. (I've seen a few computers loose their USB ports for no apparent reason. On desktops, try rebooting the computer and uninstalling the USB drivers and rebooting again. This is in the Device Manager for Windows machines. On a few laptops, sometimes removing the battery and the power adapter will reset the ports.)

For network connections, make sure that your network is up and that you aren't getting signal loss issues (for wireless networks). Try a wired connection to check for network loss. To check a network, I tend to check a few points with the ping command. For Windows, launch the Command prompt and ping the numerical IP location of your router. Then ping the IP location of the DNS server. Can you see the printer on your list of network places. (The format for ping is
ping or ping followed by enter. The returned message will be either the time for a small packet of data to go to the location and return or a connection timed out.)

If you are losing your network connection, reboot your router and broadband modem. (Try rebooting the router first.) Make sure your firewall is not blocking access to the printer.

I hope this helps. Please write back for more information with specifics for your printer.

Have a D-Link EBR2310 How can I test it to see if the port to the to the computer is working? The port gren does not light.

You are saying you cannot connect through the router ... Change the ethernet cable and/or try other portson the router.

Does your computer connect to the WWW when you wire it directly? If it will work when connected directly then it should work through the router. That is your test.

HP 7280 printer/internet access

It's just the printer she cannot access? Is she able to ping the printer? or possibly, connect to the printer via your computer? You can also try adding the printer manually. It's share name can be found either via your own computer (in the printer properties), or via the printers web interface (192.168.x.x). To do so, click Start > Printers and Faxes > Add Printer Select "Local printer attached to this computer". Click Next and select "Create new port", then from the dropdown list, select "Standard TCP/IP Port" and click Next. Click Next on the dialog that appears, then enter the printers IP address, and a port name for it (for example for my own I entered "" as that is my printers IP address, and "IP_192.168.0.100" for the port name (Windows enters this itself when you put in the IP address - you can change this to whatever you like)), and click Next. You will now see a dialog showing you the printer it is going to add. Click Next on this screen.

Have a HP C7280 Photosmart all in one for wireless connection with Belkin 54g Router. Finds router and everything works correctly but when the device is active (switched on) it disrupts attempts to access...

You mentioned it's disrupting internet access when turned on. Can you post the results of a ping and tracert (with it connected via ethernet and turned on)? To ping: 1. Start > Run and type: cmd 2. At the prompt, enter the following and press enter (after each line); cd c:\ ping >> ping.txt ping.txt The last line of the above, will open ping.txt in Notepad, for you to post here. To Tracert: 1. Click Start > Run and type: cmd 2. At the prompt, enter the following (again, press enter after each line) cd c:\ tracert >> tracert.txt tracert.txt The last line of the above, will open ping.txt in Notepad, for you to post here.
