First impression is try to do an install on another computer.
uninstall unit from computer, delete completely all drivers and its printer software from computer. if VISTA OS make sure a VISTA driver is loaded for that unit.

if a fairly new unit, return too store, possible short.

My p.c. keeps going offline and I have to unplug and re plug in the ethernet cable for the p.c. to reconize the internet conection/go back online?


try to reinstall the driver off the manufactures website, and if that doesn't work it might be the chip on the Ethernet card over heating meaning the card is bad and need to be replaced, if so they are quite cheep and many plug into usb ports or you can go wirless

I have a MacIntosh computer and wanted to install NetGear WGPS606 54 Mbps Wireless Print Server w/4 Port Switch to serve a Canon Pixma MP830. The hangup is the IP address assigned to the printer. I had...


You can assign ip with 2 method 1 is manually and other is automatic .
If you set manualy ip you must need to set gateway as your printers and other computer's gateway.
Subnetmask is same in all system.
For example if your netgear lan ip is 192.168.1.1 then your printer ip 192.168.1.5 sunet mask as 255.255.255.0 and gateway is 192.168.1.1
Other computer's ip 192.168.1.6 subnet mask 255.255.255.0 gateway 192.168.1.1
Make sure the printer driver installed and it is in network.
IF you want ip from netgear then you need to enable dhcp in it.
Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link.
http://192.168.1.1 or
http://192.168.0.1 or
http://192.168.15.1
or
http://192.168.2.1
If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it.
Then it ask for user name and password.
Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank.
Then you can see configuration page of router.

Then click on dhcp then enable save settings and restart netgear.
Then in printer set ip get automatic from router.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Your right on the money. What your referring to is damage or dislodged cable. Even quite possible damage due to mishandling or static electricity. Most Best Buys will be able to take a peek inside and tell you.

I have an Hp Pavillion a170n System by can't


Go to Printers . Put curser over the Printer icon . Press Right button on mouse . Go to bottom of meue PROPERTIES> when open at top menue selct ports. Configure port. other approach deleat printer and reinstall new printer. during set up will ask what port. USB sometimes uses virtual printing Ports. Another aproach is if USB ..Just pull cable from computer and stick in some other USB port forcing computer to reload driver to that port.

Computers wont connect to the server


When you replace the hard drives with new/other ones you lose the drivers for that machine. Get the Service tag#'s off the back and go to dell's website http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/ and click on the Enter a tag button in the middle. Then you will be able to download the correct drivers for that model. This is one of the things I absolutely love about DELL. I have been able to go to their website and get drivers for DELL's that were over 10 years old.
On almost every dell I have worked on the Network card does not work after re-installing the OS. Downloading the drivers fixes it every time.

This printer can print wirelessly across a network, and/or across a USB cable to one printer. The printer is set up for wireless use by connecting it to a computer with USB, and after it is set up you SHOULD be able to access it across your wireless router. If you look at items on the router, you will see this printer there too, with its own IP address. When you set the printer up in Windows, set it up as though it is a network printer. Looking under Ports, making sure that the correct item is checkmarked.

If you have windows service pack 2 running on your computer you will need to download new drivers for this to work Had the same issue a few years ago with same printer, drivers are incompatiable with SP2. Copy this link and click on external mirror to download drivers. See how you go, you might need to search for some more if this one doesn't work. http://drivers.softpedia.com/progDownload/Canon-PIXMA-MP160-MP-Drivers-xp64-101-Download-50482.html
