To have an IP address for the printer you must either have a HP4200n or install a Jetdirect card into the printer. The Jetdirect or "N" version of the printer with the built in Jetdirect holds the network IP address. Subnet Mask, Gateway Derfault and handles the networking functions. If you have a 4200n or Jetdirect installed it will print out on the configuration page.

The standard HP 4200 doesn't have the networking capability without adding the card. In the event that you have a card installed and its not recognizing the card on the configutation page it may be bad. The HP 615n cards are known to have burn out issues. If you have to install a card to upgrade your printer, I recommend a HP 620n or better to get around the known bad issues with the 615n cards.

On your printer go through the menu until you see jetdirect EIO, you should be able to navigate to the IP from there.

    The 615n cards can be replaced for free before October if they are unresponsive or causing particular errors on the printer even if the device is out of warranty.

    Hope this helps, because the 620's are expensive if you have to buy one.

Print configuration page

From page 185 of the User's Guide:

1 Click Start ' All Programs ' Dell Printers ' Dell C2665dnf Color Laser Multifunction Printer ' Tool Box.
The screen to select the printer appears.
2 Click Network Connection or USB Connection, and then select the printer listed in Select From the Found
NOTE: If the printer is not listed in Select From the Found Printers when you click Network Connection, click Directly Input
IP Address/Host Name and enter the IP address of the printer. For details about how to verify the IP address of the printer,
see "Verifying the IP Settings."
NOTE: On Microsoft Windows XP or Windows Server 2003, printers using IPv6 addresses cannot be detected.
3 Click OK.
The Tool Box opens.
The Tool Box consists of the Printer Setting Reports, Printer Maintenance, and Diagnosis tabs.
This assumes, of course, that you have the software installed on the computer. I don't know if there's a way to force a config page from the front of the unit itself. Just through the software or a browser.

Lexmark Ed260 does not print

OK, if it's timing out that means the printer is not visible to the network. When you used the setup disc, you said it found the same address? What address does it detect? It will mostly likely start with 192.168.x.x. During the setup process does it offer to use DHCP vs a static IP address?

Do you know the IP addresses of the 8 machines on your network? You'll want to make sure the printer doesn't use the same address as that would cause an IP conflict and prevent it from working properly on the network. Preferably you'll want to use an address outside the scope. For example, if your DHCP server is set to give out addresses from then you should make the printer Hope this makes sense.

If that still doesn't get you anywhere, connect the printer directly to a PC via USB and make sure you can print. It's possible it's an issue with the printer, but my guess it's just a network config issue.

Print a config page and check the IP address.
On the PC right click the 4050, go to properties, go to ports.
Make sure the IP address is the same as the printer.
Also on the rear of the printer, make sure that the green light on the JetDirect is on.
Check the config page (the 2nd page) right below the EIO X - JetDirect heading.
It should say "I/O Card Ready"

Aficio 1515MF All-In-One Laser Printer: I don't know where to find my IP address on my 151...

If you're at the copier, go into User Tools, and then under System Settings there should be a Network section, and then in that Network section you should be able to find the IP address.

You can also print out a config page by going into User Tools and then Printer Settings, and selecting List/Test Print. The config page will have all of your network settings, including IP address.

If you're running Windows Vista and the 1515 is hooked up to your computer, you can view the IP address by hovering over the copier on the Network Map (from the Network and Sharing Center).

D-Link DP-311P Wireless print server reseting

Hi Luis,

Sorry, it had been my mistake, did not realise your model does not have ethernet port at the back.

On D-Link printer servers that do not have cable connections it requires a couple more operations, you must do the following to connect safely to the server and open configuration:

  • On the rear panel of the DP-311P you fiind a switch to set server to Config mode. Set the switch to
  • Now go to the computer that is connecting wirelessly to the D-Link, go to wireless adapter properties, for example using control panel, and set the adapter to Ad-Hoc mode.
  • Change manually the wireless adapter IP Address so that it is in the same IP Address range
  • as the DP-311P, set the wireless adapter to a static IP address comprised within and excluding
  • Always in wireless adapter settings >> IP configuration, set subnet mask to
  • Ensure you click OK, or Apply in network settings Window, and restart the computer to apply new network settings.
  • Open Internet Explorer and type the IP Address of your wireless print server in the address bar. The default IP Address is
You also find procedure explained at page 7 of the user manual here : D-Link DP-311P

Then follow instructions at page 15 to reset the server.

After you have finished configuring the DP-311P, to save the changes, you must toggle the mode switch on the rear panel of the print server back to “Normal” mode.

Cannot print with wirelessly networked printer


if printing from 2 other computer works fine, will i think its not an issue of IP address which changes somehow. but anyways, try to check if you still have other printer drivers under "PRINTERS" (see control panel). it should say HP Photosmart c6100 series. If you also have there a printer icon that says HP Photosmart c6100 series Copy1, try using it (right click on that icon and choose Set as Default Printer). If you only have HP Photosmart c6100 series under PRINTERS, try to right click, then choose properties. When Properties box is open, click on PORTS tab. then click on configure ports below. Try to type in the IP address of the printer under "Printer Name or Host name or IP address". make sure that you already printed network configuration page to get the exact ip address of the printer, Dont know how to print? do this.

1. press setup, then scroll down and look for Network.
2. press okay on network, it will give you the first option "VIew network settings".
3. press okay on it, and it will give you the first option "Print network configuration page."
4. choose that and press okay. it will print the network config page. from this document, you will be able to see the IP address of the printer.

Please let me know if the issue is still not resolve so that i can go ahead and give you another possible solution.

Thank you so much.
