Re: hp laserjet 4200 printer- how to find the current ip...
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.

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.
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 192.168.1.1-.20 then you should make the printer 192.168.1.21. 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"
please do not assign dynamic IP on the network printer. give a static IP on it base on your network config. and also, please do assign all you computers on the network with static IP's so that every time they boot there will be no IP conflict or problem on the network connection.
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.
PRINTING NETWORK CONFIGURATION PAGE
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.
