Please let me know whether the printer is connected drirectly to a swtich with a print server or through any client pc in the network.

if its a print server you to get the IP address for the printer and add printer->choose local printer attached to this computer uncheck automatically then create a port ->type of the port standard TCP/IP give the ip address and then follow the step and its driver files etc.....

if its connected to the pc check the pc ip address ping it and know the pc is alive on the network and the printer is shared over the network then go to add printer you will choose network printer and browse for the pc under the pc u will find the printer
click over it and do the rest ...

Easy way go to the My Network places ->View workgroup computers -> choose the computer with printer double click then you will see that printer right click on the printer and choose connect - problem solved

Thanks

Kodak printer junked and replaced with hp printer but error for the kodak printer pops up on every startup


It sounds like your computer is still trying to communicate with the old printer. In the control panel, under "Programs" / "Uninstall a Program" find anything referring to the Kodak printer or Kodak printer software and uninstall it. That should also free up resources on your computer. You may also want to check under Printers to make sure the computer doesn't still have a profile for the old Kodak.

I have a T-41 IBM Thinkpad trying to install a wireless printer. The laptop cannot find the Brother wireless printer!


Sometimes during the installation of some wireless products, especially printers, you will have to configure the connection by first connecting the printer via USB, then after removing the USB the wireless will be allowed to be found...

Computer unable to communicate with wireless printer


Hi


If you can't connect to your wireless printer, you may have the wrong driver installed. Printer drivers are updated when new versions of operating systems are released, or when security updates are necessary. If you're trying to connect a new wireless printer, check the manufacturer's website to find out if a new driver has been released for your model number and operating system.

Download the latest print driver to your desktop. Print drivers allow the computer and printer to communicate, so the wrong driver will make connectivity impossible.

Go to "All Programs" in the Start menu. Find your wireless printer and right-click to select "Uninstall." The driver will be uninstalled. Close out the programs window.

Double-click the new driver on your desktop to unzip and install it. This should take only a second, and you may not see any dialog box or pop-up menu.

Open a document and choose "File" and "Print." The print dialog box will open.

Click "Add a printer." The add printer wizard will begin. Browse to the driver you just installed and select it when prompted.

Print the document you opened. It should print to the wireless printer. You can click the "Make default printer" box before you print if you want.

Install the driver in the same manner on all the other network computers. You can copy the driver onto a flash drive and copy it from computer to computer to avoid downloading it multiple times.

I upgraded to windows 7, now my hp laserjet 1000 series will not work, how to get and download compatible driver for this new system?


Ok. The following method may or may not work for you. Please remember that only HP can provide correct drivers. Any other unofficial workarounds may work for some configurations and fail for some. this procedure helped a few users to install their HP 1000 on Win 7 32 bit only (sorry no 64 bit support).

If you find that this procedure did not help you, the only other way would be to purchase a new Laserjet or perform a dual boot with Win XP.

  1. Remove any other HP driver fro this printer.
  2. Download HP Laserjet 1000 Host Based Driver from this website and install it. Ensure that you can find it in C:/lj1000hb
  3. Connect the printer now. It should try to auto install but will fail.
  4. Go to Device Manager. the printer should have a yellow exclamation mark against it.
  5. Right lick the HP Laserjet 1000 icon.
  6. Select the "Update drivers" for the printer
  7. Point the Printer to the location C:/lj1000hb. Or if it is another folder, point it to that folder.
  8. The Printer should install and work at this point.
  9. The icon for the printer will not be correct (it looks like an all-in-one),.. but the Laserjet 1000 will function 100%.
Now open any application like Word, notepad etc and try to print from it. If it prints then the printer is working. If there is an error, check if you haven't missed a step or try to look it up online or put it as a question on fixya.

Note that you only have basic print functionality (if it is that is) unlike the advanced features in a full printer driver. Remember to tell others if the solution worked.

I have an HP photosmart 8200 series printer. It


Try installing the printer as a LPT Port or USB Port connection. Do not allow it search for any printers.
You can change port access later.
This is how I install my HP4050N Network printer.
ALSO, Is your network connection working properly?

Installing printer


Hi there!

1. Try another USB port at the laptop (if you have other USB ports in it).
2. Try a known working USB cable.
3. Try a different laptop/ computer.

This should further isolate your problem.

Hope this helps!

NEW AIR CARD HAS SIGNAL BUT NOT CONNECTING TO NETWORK


i have had three aircards due to many problems including not being able to install the communication manager program from the aircard to not being able to connect to the att network. well, i got a laptop the other day and figured i was going to have problems with the aircard UNTIL i went to the sierra wireless website and did some investigating!! i think the problems lie with the communication manager rather than the aircard itself. >>>download the 3GWatcher program directly from sierra wireless and use that instead of the communication manager. it offers all the same functions and worked right off the bat....i took my laptop with the aircard out on a golf course in the middle of nowhere to test and everything worked beautifully!!
i, too, spent many hours on the phone with att....very frustrating!
and no reps even suggested that i try the 3GWatcher program...they all blamed the problems on a "bad batch" of aircards.... hmmmmm!!
try it, you'll like it!
