I want to set up my new HP PHOTOSMART eSTATION C510 series Printer. Where I bought my printer said I would need a router. So I bought a new CISCO linksys E1000. When I got home and started to get everything set up. Discovered my DSL is hooked up with a router. How do I hookup and install my printer. Did I really need the new router? I can't seem to get everything in my head as how to began. Everyone has me so confused. My computer is a new IMAC "APPLE" running Firefox with Century Tel DSL. Can you help ME.

. The printer's instruction guide should show you how to set the printer's IP address ?
it has to be in the range of what the modem / router you already have is.
If set to auto ip address on the printer
The existing modem / router would have a DCHP server most likely you could log into this router and look sat the ip leases and when it allocates a lease to the printer you set it as Static or permanent lease. There would be an ethernet port on the back of the router to plug in your printer to.
If manual setup then log into router / modem and set the dchp leases to start above 10 . it would be xx.xx.xx.1 to xx.xx.xx.254 just change it to xx.xx.xx.10 to xx.xx.xx.254 and xx means whatever it is set to for its network address. eg - . Set the printer to ip address to eg

On your MAC you may need to download and install a printer driver .
Mac is very clever and may set up the printer once you do this automatically by detecting the printer and setting it up in the MAC

If it is a wi fi printer you need to know the encryption settings by logging into the wi fi router and then set this up on the printer ?

SOURCE: Can't install new home printer

No problem JLW63.

Did you follow the instructions (how to unpack the printer).
There are many parts that must be removed before you can hook up & run the printer?

1. Click the start button, & open Control Panel. Once opend click Add/Remove programs. In the list of programs (one at a time), uninstall your old printers ( ones not connected to your PC). Re-start the PC once all old printer have been uninstalled.

2. When windows has finished loading take your CD for the Brother HL-2170W & put it into the cdrom. ( if the Brother screen does not open don't worry about it).

3. Click the Start button, than click Run. Click the Browse button. The Browse window will open. See the words, Look in: to it's right is a window & to the right of the window is a drop down button, click it once. A list will open, you will see some folders & some icons. One Icon will have what looks like a CD on it & it may have the word Brother listed under it or to it's right. (Click it once.)

4. Another list of folders will show up. Click once on the file that reads, setup.exe. Than click ( Open ) in the bottom right hand corner of that window.

5. Sit back & the CD will start installing the Brother CD software. Stay at your computer because you will need to enter information from time to time when asked. Follow the on-screen instructions.

Have a good day & enjoy your new printer!

SOURCE: network printer

Connect one end of an ethernet cable into the ethernet port on the printer and the other one into a free port on the router. Then, using the install CD, tell it that you are attaching a printer on the network. The software should automatically detect the printer on the network and set itself up for it.

SOURCE: trying to install printer

Two issues, you can go to the HP site and download the latest printer driver for that model:

Or check what version of windows you are running. Click on START, SETTINGS, CONTROL PANEL, SYSTEM.

It should tell you on the first page your OS and what patch it is at.

Hp photosmart won't print in color

Blocked print head nozzles
Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent blocked print head nozzles. You may have blocked print head nozzles.
Try the printer maintenance to clear the printer nozzles.
After several deep cleaning attempts and there is no improvements in the print then a new print head is required.
A new print head maybe expensive and it maybe more cost effective to purchase a new printer.

    I have a CISCO Basic Wireless Router. Can this particular Router be connected to an HP Photosmart wireless printer? There is no WPS easy button on the router.

    The router is capable of at least Wireless B (11MB) and possibly Wireless G (54MB) or Wireless N standard speeds. The HP Photosmart will do at least Wireless B speeds (and depending on which model - even possibly the faster "G" or "N" standards, too), so yes; it can be connected wirelessly.

    You'll have to set up the the HP Photosmart printer the same way you set up other wireless devices to connect to the router. You'll need to input the SSID, Security Encryption Type (WEP or WPA) and associated security "Key" to match those settings that are in the router.

    If you can't remember those settings, or never set up the wireless options, you'll have to access the Cisco Router's built in web set up page. Since you didn't include your particular model number, you'll have to look up this info at Cisco's web site yourself.

    If you have trouble, include the model of your router and I'll see what additional info I can get for you.

    Computer is not finding printer blue tooth, what do I do?

    Hi Good day!!!

    Press the wireless button on the printer
    Then press the button that scrolls through the options
    Until print configuration appears
    Then print it
    (the above is just an example - as I do not know your printer)

    Now you can install the printer through Windows Printers

    Go to Control Panel
    - Printers
    Select add printer
    Select a local printer (top one) and untick automatically detect
    Select create a new port
    Select HP ...TCP/IP (if exists) If it doesn't exist select Standard TCP/IP
    Printer Name: HP Photosmart
    Port Name: (enter your IP address ie Next
    And after this not sure - but it's probably: Next then Finish

    Now print a test page to the new "HP Photosmart" printer, you just created

    My HP printer will not print pages from the desktop. I ran a test report from the printer itself and it said that the Access point could not be found and that it was in fact turned off. How do I fix this?

    If this problem arises check for updated printer drivers, compatibility between your wireless printer and Windows Vista and firewall settings. All or any of this could prevent your HP wireless printer from printing documents. Setting up wireless printers is very easy; however, sometimes certain settings can create hassles for you. get more help for HP Wireless Printer Problems.
