Question about HP DeskJet 6988 Printer

1 Answer

Just bought a NetGear WNDR 3400 router and used the set-up wizard. Set-up was successful and two my two laptops are commiunicating with the router and I am able to get on the internet. I can't get an HP 6988 Wireless Printer to print. It wouldn't set-up using the Easy Set-up method. I tried setting it up using the Wireless Set-up Wizard in the Control Panel using a flash drive and it said it was successful. The signal light and network light are on and not blinking but it still won't print. Any suggestions?

Is the printer software installed on the laptops? Are you trying to print from the laptop itself, or a phone or tablet?
Sounds like from what you said the devices are on the network, but they still need the correct software to communicate with each other.

Try to use a smartphone and install the HP mobile printing app, if that app is able to find your printer, it is indeed on the network correctly.

If you can print from the phone/tablet, but not the laptops, you need to install the software drivers for your printer to your laptop(s) you wish to print from.

Here is a link to the Windows Drivers

I discussed this with an HP tech & worked on the solution myself to verify his answer &, of course, he was right!
Your printer will only recognize one connection: either wireless or hardwired but NOT both. That is why it keeps switching back to hardwired mode.

SOURCE: I have a HP Photosmart B110A. The printer worked

Think I have sorted this one out. Download FULL drivers package (I went through HP printer diagnostics to get to this). When main install screen appears select 'ADD Device' and follow it through - my B110a now works perfectly, and wirelessly for both printing and scanning. Hope this solves your problem.

I have a new Netgear WNDR 3400 router. PS3 and iPods connect to internet. Toshiba laptop receives the router signal, but wont connect to internet. help!


Most likely a DHCP or DNS problem on the laptop. To confirm this open a command prompt Windows Button > type "cmd" <enter>. Now at the command prompt type "ipconfig". Scroll up to the top of your output and you should have an "Ethernet Local Area Connection". Your IPv4 address should start 192.168.x.x. If yes you are getting a valid assigned IP via DHCP, if you get 169.x.x.x then you are not. To fix Click windows button > All Programs > Accessories > right click command prompt and click "Run as Administrator". Now type "ipconfig /release" followed by "ipconfig /renew". Give it a few moments and check to make sure you get a 192.168.x.x IP now and you should be good.

How to instal


Hi,
You'll wanna check out: ftp://downloads.netgear.com/files/WNR1000_SM_WW_23Jan09.pdf
Look for "installation"..
To help you set up your router and get on the Internet quickly, the Resource CD contains a Smart Wizard™ Installation Assistant. The Installation Assistant walks you through the steps required to connect your router, modem, and PC(s); configure your wireless settings; and enable wireless security for your network. When you have finished, you will be Internet ready!
You can set up your wireless router using one of two methods:
• Smart Wizard Setup: The Smart Wizard Installation Assistant setup is available on your Resource CD. See "Installing Your Router Using the Smart Wizard" on page 9 to use the Smart Wizard Installation Assistant.
- This is the easiest option. The wizard guides you through the setup process. It automates many of the steps and verifies that the steps have been successfully completed.
- Smart Wizard requires a PC running Microsoft Windows.
• Manual Setup: If you cannot or prefer not to use the Smart Wizard Installation Assistant, see "Manually Installing Your Router" on page 13. For example, if you are connecting to a Mac, are using a Linux operating system, or are technically knowledgeable, select this option. If you choose to use this option and install your router manually, for best results, install and set up your router in this order:
Failure to follow these guidelines can result in significant performance degradation or an inability to wirelessly connect to the Internet.
NETGEAR does not recommend or support adding a NETGEAR router behind another router, or replacing a gateway with a a NETGEAR router.
If you have a Macintosh or Linux system, you must use the manual installation method (see "Manually Installing Your Router" on page 13).Getting to Know Your Wireless Router 7
1. Install and connect your wireless router to your network (see "Connecting Your Wireless Router" on page 14).
2. Set up your wireless router for Internet access (see "Setting Up Your Router for Internet Access" on page 18).
3. Configure your wireless network and select wireless security settings to protect your wireless network (see "Configuring Your Wireless Network" on page 21)

Where to get the smart wizard installation assistant disk for netgear n router wndr 3300. I have tried the manual but it is not working


Are you trying to set up router ?
You can set up your router manually, without the CD.
Make sure that your computer is able to go online directly through the modem.
If your computer is able to go online through the modem, that means the modem is working fine.
You will need to connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router.
open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP.

Wndr 3300 net gear router wont work with hn 9000 hughes net modem


I went to the Hughes web site to check out the modem. They say it is also a router. I think you will have to disable the router abilities of your WNDR 3300 Net Gear Router.

Get into the Netgear setup by loging on to it.In its WAN setup select Static IP Address and set the Static IP Address to the same as the hughes modem, except for the last number which should be about 50 greater. IE: Hughes 192.168.12.1 and Netgear 192.168.12.55.

In the DHCP setup, disable the DHCP Server

In the Wireless setup, Give your network a name is SSID. You should also set up security to keep others off you internet connection with a WEP key.

I hope this helps.
