    I can connect with my mac if i use the ip in the printer setup. but if my router is reset the ip is reset on the printer and i have to re-print the setup info and re setup the printer on the computer. The Win computers in the net just see it and attach. is there a setting or way to set the mac to see it without a specific ip?

Plug an ethernet cable into one of the ethernet jacks on the router and the other end into the printer. run driver installation setup on your computer that is connected to the wireless network and choose peer-to-peer networking. let your computer search for the network printer. follow installation instructions to complete.

Can the Epson CX6000 printer be connected wirelessly? Epson says no!


By itself the answer is NO. You would need to add a print server to your wireless router. They are not that expensive. See these links.

The wireless router needs to configured with the wireless settings, SSID, encryption etc. Then the wireless card in the Toshiba needs to be configured with the wireless router's SSID, encryption etc.

Sometimes this problem occures when you install a later model wireless router.
Try installing the latest Wireless card driver on the XP computer and the LAN card drivers on the other computers except the MAC.

HOW DO I USE A WIRELESS PRINTER WITH NO ROUTER. I WANT TO PRINT FROM TWO COMPUTERS, THAT BOTH USE DIAL UP INTERNET


You can attach the printer directly through USB cable to your computer and print, or you can connect the printer and your computer to the same wireless network and then print using the wireless and your connection.
Internet is not necessary, only a communication path needs to be established. For this whether its your neighbor's wifi network, your own wifi network, a usb cable connection between your pc and printer etc printing will be accomplished.

HP C8180 has built in wireless adapter and Ethernet according the Website at HP.

If this is connecting to the network wirelessly, check to see that it is connected to the Network, is your router using secure passwords for a connection to the network,
Your printer will need these passwords just as your computers would
If you connect the printer with a Lan Cable, it will be more reliable, and shouldn’t need a password to be on the network. And makes life a little easier...

Your internet provider has nothing to do with your Printer not printing; this is an Internal Network Problem. The settings or your network has changed.

The Printer should have a static IP address

Can't add a printer to network


Hold reset on the router for about a min and a half while disconnected from power. You should be able to connect with both the PC and printer when powering up again.

Networking a Printer on a wireless network


Deanna, if the mfc is not that old, take it back to the dealer and ask for changing it to a wireless printer (extension: CW). Do you really need the fax function? If not, try this printer: DCP 750CW. If yes, get the MFC 845 CW. The CN printer have to be connected directly to router or pc/laptop.
