Hi,

The only possibility that I can think of is that the printer is not being assigned an IP add by your router. This could probably be cause by the DHCP not working right possibly due to another DHCP that from your new modem. Shouold this be the case, may I suggest that the DHCP function/feature of the modem be disabled and assigned an appropriate static IP add to the WAN of your router.

Alternately, you can assign a static IP add to your printer say 192.168.1.200 following the other IP configuration of your PC/network. Of course, you would have to reconfigure the shared TCP/IP add of the printer to be known/recognized by your PCs.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

My lexmark printer will not print recently moved using new provider for internet computer is mac os x


If your printer was connected wireless to your system prior to changing internet provider, you may need to reset your printer's wireless network adapter first and then reconfigure it to reconnect to your new wireless network.
If you need the Lexmark printer driver for your Mac, please visit www.lexmark.com.

I have changed my Internet provider and it has a different IP address than before and my bizhub 250 cannot print now


Press Utility/Counter
Press Administrator
Input code 12345678 or 00000000
Select admin 2
Select Network
Here you can change the network settings to match you new Network scheme. You will have to reinstall the print drivers after you correct the network settings. If you have the driver disk it will auto run and find the machine, if you don't have the disk you can download the drivers at kmbs.konicaminolta.com where you can also download the user manuals in PDF format that will go into more detail on changing the network settings.

I have a sony vaio VGN-FZ430E for a year now. It is set up on a new printer, a lexmark X4690 wireless. Right now we don't have wireless internet so we have to computer hooked up to a non-wireless network....


If you're on a wired network now and the Printer used to be on a wireless network, your computer may not know where to print to anymore. You might want to try uninstalling the printer in full and then reinstalling it making sure to do it directly connected to the computer you want to print from.

I just changed from DSL to FIOS, and now my fax/printer/scanner (all-in-one) will not print. I have an ethernet cable connected from the printer to the FIOS router, and who knows where to plug in the phone...


First, the phone connection to the fax simply needs to come from a regular phone jack. You will need to have a regular telephone number in order for it to work. As I understand it, FIOS is a fiber network, which means everything is comming to you via the internet. Faxing does not work over internet telephony
On to your printer.
If you had connected the printer through ethernet before, the IP your computer thinks the printer is on is most likely no longer valid. You will need to either reinstall your printer (easiest solution - recommended), or re-connect to it manually (requires much greater skill and knowledge).
I cannot assist you with re-connecting it manually, so your best bet is to simply re-install the printer.
Good Luck!

HP printer will not print over wireless network using Belkin hub


Try turning everything off, wait a couple of seconds and then turn it back on.  Also try disabling McAffee to test.  When you go to printers and faxes on the PC, what is the status of your printer?

Sounds like your machine is using DHCP, not a static IP address?

Print your network settings from the Printer, then try to Ping from a computer on the network.

Check the Network setting of the machine, make sure it is set to a fixed (static) IP Address.

If this is the problem, you can go into your PC printers port and change the port to the reassigned IP Address of the machine.

If you reinstall the drivers then you will have this installed twice, one will work one will not, so delete it from the printers folder before you reinstall before you reinstall
