Question about Belkin (F5D7230-4) Router (587009)

1 Answer

I can't networt to a printer

I have a Brother MFC 465cn printer. I cannot get it to connect to my MacBook Pro through my Belkin G router. I connected the printer to the router with an ethernet cable and the printer got an IP address. I use the router to wirelessly go on line everyday but the only way I was able to print was to connect an ethernet cable from the router to the computer. Now that doesn't work either. Do I have to buy a new router?

It sounds like a software configration issue. try and access the Network menu on your MFC and remove any static IP that might have been setup by your software and retry to configure the printer.

I have changed my router and my networked printer no longer works


Hello Warren !

What happened is that when you replace the router, the IP Address for your printer changed as well. Your network printer connects to your computer through a number called the "IP address" wich is assigned by your router, since you replace your router, the new router assign a new Ip address for the printer, so you will need to change that IP address on the printer driver on your computer as well.

What you need to do is print a configuration report directly from the printer to figure out what the new IP.
When you have this number ( it will look something like "192.168.0.1")
you need to go to "printer and faxes" under control panel, make a right click on the MFC-465 icon, go to properties, then go to the ports tab a click on "Add Port" select Standard TCP/IP and type in the new ip address.

This should reentablish the communication between your printer and computer.

Good Luck

Networking a Printer on a wireless network


Deanna, if the mfc is not that old, take it back to the dealer and ask for changing it to a wireless printer (extension: CW). Do you really need the fax function? If not, try this printer: DCP 750CW. If yes, get the MFC 845 CW. The CN printer have to be connected directly to router or pc/laptop.
