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.

As one person suggested above, it is possible to share the printer between two machines. All you need to do is set it up as a TCP/IP printer and assign it an address (either through the DHCP server or by giving it a static IP address), then go into the two machines and add the printer as a network printer. When asked about the type of port to use, select Local TCP/IP port... and enter the IP address of the printer.

I recommend setting a reserved DHCP address through your router to insure that the printer keeps a constant address and to insure that the router does not accidentally try assigning the same address to something else and therefore cause an IP address conflict.

Hi, does anyone know how to hook up a hp 4550n printer directly to a laptop with windows 7? It has a Jetdirect card (600n). I tried plugging a ethernet cable from the printer to the pc but nothing happens.


you need a crossover patch cable, then set ip address manually on printer in same range as your current IP e.g 192.168.0.x is your IP(use ipconfig), then set printer to 192.168.0.x+5 if no other devices are on network

I need to find the IP address of my HP Laserjet 4200n printer. I've gone through all menus, printed a configuration page, and nothing. How can I find it??


First look at the back of the printer where the network cable plugs into the formatter. There should be a blinking green light. No green light no network!
That means printer is talking to the host.
Print out the config pages again. On the 2nd page top left side should be a line "I/O card Ready"
If it is READY, look down the page and you should see the IP address.
You can also push the left side of the menu switch twice. You will see EIO X JETDIRECT MENU
That is where you find the IP address.

I am trying to locate the ip address on an office hp 4200n


Usually you can print a configuration page and it will tell you the IP address that is assigned to the printer. You should be able to use the small menu screen on the printer to navigate to, and print a configuration page, or use it to navigate to the network settings to view and/or edit the current configuration. If all else fails, sometimes you can run Angry IP Scanner on a computer that is on the same network as the printer and see if any of the hosts come up with a name that matches the printer, then you will see the address of that host.

I have a HP LJ P2015n. Should be on our network


Hi,
As i understand your concern you have network printer which you want to setup with your network. And right now your printer is connected with the computer using a usb be cable. Thats the main reason why it is having different ip address because it don't required any ip address once you tried to connect your printer through usb cable. I can suggest you that once you connect your printer on the network and you will get the option to network setup on your printer where you can assigned static ip to you printer which is the range for your router or network device called DHCP.

I believe that will help your resolve your concern.

Thanks & Regards

HP Laserjet 4050Tn can't be found by network computers (XP)


To install the HP as a network printer you need to do the following -
1. Configure the HP's IP address so it matches the IP range of your network. eg if your IP's are 192.168.0.xxx then set the HP to a high number say 100.
2. Install the HP printer driver on your computer/s using the LPT printer port.
3. Connect the printer to the network hub/router and power up the printer.
4. Click on Printers an Faxes - right click on the HP printer and click on Properties.
5. Click on Ports and click on Add Port.
6. In available ports - click on Standart TCP/IP Port and then Configure port.
7. Tick the IP box and type in the IP address of the HP's IP address.
8. Click OK and tick Enable bidirectional support and then OK

You need to setup the HP printer the same way on every computer on your network.
You can now print from any computer on your network

Hp 4200 tn networking problems


I would suggest, print a diagnostic page from the printer, what IP address does it show? It is on the same network as your computers? If not then it will require changing the printer to either DHCP or giving it a static IP within the same range as your other workstations.
