Question about HP Color LaserJet 2600n Printer

1 Answer

Hi there, looks like there is a hardware issue on the machine. The Jet direct defaults continuously to Dhcp changing the address to some random ip. nobody in the office can print to this printer. This is the issue here where this unit looses the settings and go back to default. What our IT guy has now done was to pair an ip with the physical network card in the machine via the server address leases. This will force the unit to use the 205 address, but is not standard practise and only a work around that he figured out now.

What your IT tech has done is use an address reservation to ensure that the printer always gets the same IP. This is a fairly common practice to ensure when one needs to ensure that a machine always gets the same address. We use that on our network almost exclusively. I would recommend that you perform a cold reset on this machine, also called an NVRAM init. This how it is done:

Use the following procedure to execute an NVRAM-init.

1 Turn off the printer.

2 Press and hold the (SELECT) and (CANCEL JOB) buttons simultaneously.

3 Turn on the printer.

4 When you see the message Permanent storage init displays, release the (SELECT) and

(CANCEL JOB) buttons.
When the NVRAM init is complete, the printer will return to the Ready state.

After you have done that you will need to to reset your network card settings. Also ensure that the firmware on the printer is 20070716. You will find the firmware version printed on the configuration page of the machine.

How to configure huawei hg533 router for home network


William the more information you can provide the more accurate can be our brain trust community's answer.
What I have to guess is you added the cameras to an existing network.
What you need to provide is how are the camera's getting their IP addresses ?
How are the PC getting their IP addresses.
My guess
Go into the router settings and look for DCHP server. Look at the leases issued and change the IP addresses that are assigned to the cameras to Static rather than Dynamic. if the cameras are getting IP address from DHCP. server rather than being set up manually..

If you manually set up the IP addresses on the cameras then alter the available ip range on the DHCP server to avoid the IP addresses assigned to the cameras. As an example say the DCHP range was 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.1.254 then alter it to be 192.168.1.21 to 192.168.1.254 and then hence the ip addresses 192.168.1.2 to 192.168.1.20 are used on static ip addresses like printers and cameras devices.

How do you log into the router
go to the internet browser and type in 192.168.1.1 and it should bring up your router The user name is most likely admin and the password will be admin by default. If no one has changed them.
I have looked at the usre manual but it does not spell out how to change the DCHP ip address ranges leases out or the way to change the ip addresses leased out to static for the cameras. I think you will find some sort of setting in thew dhcp menu option of the router.

What
I think is happening is called an ip address conflict. And the above suggestions should stop this from occurring when you reboot the IP address is re assigned and the DCHP server could be issuing ip address leases to your p.cs that are already staticly assigned to your cameras.

DHCP Server configuration in Linux


Linux is a UNIX based operating system. It is a server operating system. REDHAT Linux is Enterprise version of Linux. Now a day's Most of corporate sectors use red hat Linux as server in their company because it is secure very much.

Full form of DHCP "Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol. DHCP server assigns IP addresses and other network configuration information like subnet mask, broadcast address, etc to computers on a network. The DHCP assignments are the following.

Lease Request: Client broadcasts their request to DHCP server with a source address of 0.0.0.0 and a destination address of 255.255.255.255.
IP lease offer: DHCP server replies with an IP address, subnet mask, network gateway, name of the domain, name servers, duration of the lease and the IP address of the DHCP server.

Lease Selection: Client receives offer and broadcasts to al DHCP servers that will accept given offer so that other DHCP server need not make an offer.

The DHCP server then sends an ack to the client. The client is configured to use TCP/IP. Lease Renewal: When half of the lease time has expired, the client will issue a new request to the DHCP server.

Installation of DHCP server: First of all while install the RedHat Linux enterprise version server be careful about the ports and the services must be turned on. To create DHCP server in Linux first download DHCP RPM package and install with "rpm-ivh" command. Where I have done it there I have create YUM server, so easily I have download and install it by YUM (yum install dhcp version). DHCP package will locate in /usr/share/doc/at Linux file system. I copied the DHCP's files from /usr/share/doc/ to /etc/dhcpd.conf.. Then I started to configure the dhcpd.conf file to route the DHCP server in there local network. I have open the configuration file with "vi" command. Then commented out the lines from "default gateway to option netbios" because system don't read the commented lines. After that I set the range of IP address in dynamic- bootp of their local assumption of system. I have change the "next-server" with the dhcp server name and have also change the fixed address with the dhcp server IP address (end range of dynamic IP). It is very easy job to configure DHCP server. After configure the .conf file of dhcp just turn on the service with "chkconfig" command and restart the dhcp service. After that entire job I reboot the system. And after rebooting of server I turned on the other client system. While startup the client system without static IP address all of those picked up IP from dhcp server and going on successfully. I have prefer the command line mode to do the total job.
The DHCP server configure file is following:

ddns-update-style interim
ignore client-updates

subnet 192.168.1.0 netmask 255.255.255.0 {
# The range of IP addresses the server
# will issue to DHCP enabled PC clients
# booting up on the network

range 192.168.1.201 192.168.1.220;
# Set the amount of time in seconds that
# a client may keep the IP address

default-lease-time 86400;
max-lease-time 86400;

# Set the default gateway to be used by
# the PC clients

option routers 192.168.1.1;
# Don't forward DHCP requests from this
# NIC interface to any other NIC
# interfaces

option ip-forwarding off;

# Set the broadcast address and subnet mask
# to be used by the DHCP clients

option broadcast-address 192.168.1.255;
option subnet-mask 255.255.255.0;

# Set the NTP server to be used by the
# DHCP clients

option ntp-servers 192.168.1.100;

# Set the DNS server to be used by the
# DHCP clients

option domain-name-servers 192.168.1.100;

# If you specify a WINS server for your Windows clients,
# you need to include the following option in the dhcpd.conf file:

option netbios-name-servers 192.168.1.100;

# You can also assign specific IP addresses based on the clients'
# ethernet MAC address as follows (Host's name is "laser-printer":

host laser-printer {
hardware ethernet 08:00:2b:4c:59:23;
fixed-address 192.168.1.222;
}
}
#
# List an unused interface here

Connect motorola modemsbSB6121 to Belink N600 wireless router with out losing internet signal


Step one turn on PC directly connected to ModemsbSB6121 without Wi FI router being involved.
Step two go to Command prompt type in ipconfig (press enter)
Step three note IP address of default gateway and ip address issued to P.C.
Step four type in default gateway address into browser and log into Modem.
Step five look for DHCP Server and allocate IP addresses from at least 50 for example 192.168.0.50 starting ip lease ending ip lease 192.168.0.254
Step six connect Wi Router to P.C. via ethernet cable only - remove ModemSB6121
Step Seven shutdown and restart p.c
Step Eight go to Command prompt type in ipconfig (press enter)
Step Nine note IP address of default gateway and ip address issued to P.C.
Step Ten type in default gateway address into browser and log into Wi Fi Router
Step Eleven Change IP address on Router to 2 as example 192.168.0.2. (it has to match in that modem device would have been 192,168.0.1)
(if it was 10.0.0.1 make wi fi 10.0.0.2 make sure subnet mask is the same like 255.255.255.0)
Step twelve Change DHCP Server to off
Step Thirteen may need to set default gateway to MODEM IP address for example 192.168.0.1
Step Fourteen plug modem router into Wi Fi router may need to plug into WAN port on WI FI router .
Step Fifteen shutdown and Restart Computer
Step Sixteen go to Command prompt type in ipconfig (press enter)
Step Seventeen type in PING 192.168.0.1 (if this is modem IP address and default gateway IP addess)
All this above is to avoid IP address conflicts or mismatching
Subnet mask should be 255.255.255.0
either it uses 192.168.0.1 or it uses 10.0.0.1 make sure Wi FI router is set to different address to Modem Router.
I suspect either a clash occurs or your P.C gets a different IP range from ther WI FI DHCP server.
Happy troubleshooting !

What is the default ip address for powerconnect 5212


You must assign an IP address to the switch to gain management access over the network. You may also need to a establish a default gateway between the switch and management stations that exist on another network segment. You can statically configure a specific IP address or direct the switch to obtain an address from a Boot Protocol (BOOTP) or Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server when it is powered on. Valid IP addresses consist of four decimal numbers, 0 to 255, separated by periods. Anything outside this format is not accepted by the CLI program. notice.gif NOTICE: By default, the IP address is assigned to VLAN 1 through DHCP. If you select the bootp or dhcp option, IP is enabled but does not function until a BOOTP or DHCP reply has been received. Requests are broadcast periodically by the switch in an effort to learn its IP address. (BOOTP and DHCP values can include the IP address, default gateway, and subnet mask).
To display assigned IP settings using the CLI:
  1. From the Privileged Exec or Normal Exec level mode, type show ip interface and press <Enter>.

The assigned IP address and subnet mask displays.

  1. From the Privileged Exec mode, type show ip redirects to display the assigned gateway IP address. Press <Enter>.

The following example displays IP settings assigned by bootp or dhcp using the CLI.

Console#show ip interface

IP address and netmask: 10.1.0.1 255.255.252.0 on VLAN 1,

and address mode: User specified.

Console# show ip redirects

ip default gateway 10.1.0.254

Console#
Before you can assign a static IP address to the switch, you must obtain the following information from your network administrator:

  • IP address for the switch

  • Default gateway for the network

  • Network mask for the network

To assign a static IP address to the switch:
  1. From the Privileged Exec level global configuration mode prompt, type interface vlan 1 to access the interface-configuration mode. Press <Enter>.

  2. Type ip address ip-address netmask, where ip-address is the switch IP address and netmask is the network mask for the network.

  3. Type exit to return to the global configuration mode prompt. Press <Enter>.

  4. To set the IP address of the default gateway for the network to which the switch belongs, type ip default-gateway gateway, where gateway is the IP address of the default gateway. Press <Enter>.

  5. To save your configuration changes, type copy running-config startup-config and then press <Enter>.

notice.gif NOTICE: Only one VLAN can be assigned an IP address. If you assign an address to any other VLAN, the new address overrides the original IP address. The following example shows how to set a static IP address using the CLI.

Console(config)# interface vlan 1

Console(config-if)# ip address 192.168.1.5 255.255.255.0

Console(config-if)# exit

Console(config)# ip default-gateway 192.168.1.254

Console(config)#
To configure the switch for DHCP or BOOTP:

  1. From the Privileged Exec level global configuration mode prompt, type interface vlan 1 to access the interface-configuration mode. Press <Enter>.

  2. At the next prompt, use one of the following commands:

    • To obtain IP settings through DHCP, type ip address dhcp

    • To obtain IP setting through BOOTP, type ip address bootp

  3. Press <Enter>.

  4. To save your configuration changes, type copy running-config startup-config, and then press <Enter>.

HI, I have D-link DES 3026 manageable switch. i want to configure this switch.........In that we have to assign our IP....... I dont know how to assign the IP........ I have WAN IP, Subnet Mask, Gateway...


Normally most internal LAN addressing is carried out by a DHCP server which issues IP addresses to anything that is connected to the network.
IE your computer. most switches are set to obtain an IP address from them as a default. to find the IP address of youe switch you need to look at your DHCP server ( possibly your router/modem) and see what addresses have been issued. Once you have found the address it is a simple task to open your internet browser and type in the ip address of your switch. once there you should be able to configure your switch as per your requirements.

I had to assign my router a new IP address and that made the wireless computer loose its connection, how do i reassign the wireless computer to the new IP address?


That is easy. You have to change the Default Gateway. Make sure you are running DHCP in the Router as well. Otherwise you may have to change the IP Address of the Computer to suite the New IP Address and its Subnet.
  1. You have to go to "Network Connections" in the Control panel.
  2. Go to the Wireless Adapter Section and Choose the Local Connection.
  3. Right Click on Properties and the Double Click on Internet Protocol (TCP/IP).
  4. If you are using a "Static IP Address", Please change the IP Address of your Machine to suite the IP Address and Change the Default Gateway to the New Address (And then the DNS Server Address as well, if you are running DNS from your Router).
  5. If you are running DHCP (You will see that the boxes are Blank and "Obtain IP Address Automatically" and "Obtain DNS Address Automatically" selected) this cannot happen. Then you have to check your Router's DNS Settings for the Internal Network. Make Suitable Changes.
  6. If you have tried this only once and if you have the DHCP running try changing only the DNS in the TCP/IP settings. It may work. Or try to Release the IP and Renewing it.
  7. Use ipconfig /release and then ipconfig / renew on a Command Prompt.
  8. If you are running DNS and DHCP Locally, then you have to change their settings to Point to the Router.
Hope this will solve the issue. If it helped you so, please be kind enough to Rate the answer with a Testimonial.

I have a yellow machine p400t and i need to give it a static IP address and do this through a linksys router. how do i go about this? do i need to attach it to a computer?


Yes, it must be attached to the network 0. Install the yellow machine software on the PC 1.Log on to the Yellow Machine Manager. Go to “Logging On To Yellow Machine Manager” on page 8. 2.From the Yellow Machine Manager, click Network > Network Interfaces. The Network Interfaces window appears. 3.Click Edit. 4.Select Yes to Enable LAN Interface. Default: Yes (Enabled) • If you select No, all other LAN option fields are blocked. • If you disable the LAN Interface, the only access to the Yellow Machine appliance is through the WAN port. Anthology Solutions does not recommend this configuration. 5.Check Enable DHCP Service if the DHCP service is needed for the PCs attached to the Yellow Machine appliance’s LAN ports. This setting makes the Yellow Machine appliance the DHCP server for your LAN (or sub-network), providing IP addresses dynamically for the clients connected to the LAN ports. Default: Checked (Disabled) 6.Select either Obtain IP Address Automatically from DHCP Server, or Static IP Address. Default: Static IP Address • Choose Obtain IP Address Automatically from DHCP Server if your Yellow Machine appliance connects to either a router that has DHCP service enabled or to a cable modem. This setting makes the Yellow Machine appliance a DHCP client on your network. • Obtain IP Address from ADSL provider is greyed out. • Choose Static IP Address if your network is locally defined and controlled and does not use DHCP services. Type the IP address manually. 7.Specify IP address and Subnet mask if you selected a Static IP Address, and click Apply. 8.Click Yes to confirm, No to abort. The changes takes affect within five seconds after the network interface change notice appears.

2wire 1800hg random no internet/random access, repair/wait fixes


It seems that you said your computer gets the ip address from your router,, which means thru DHCP of the router but if you look at the DHCP settings of your wireless card inside your computer ---the DHCP is OFF -- check your ipconfig/all command as shown in your problem too,,, your wless card does not accept the new IP which comes from your router --as DHCP is OFF on your wless card and sticks with the old ip address whereas the router maintains a new ip for your computer in its table and a mismatch occurs and you loose the internet connection ,,,,thats why repair works and then again the IP changes in the router for your computer and your computer's wless card lags behind and use the old ip adress ..... DHCP--- IS DYNAMIC , WHICH MEANS IT RENEWS THE IP address after some time and you computer gets stuck to the old one ,,, hence mismatch. "you make the DHCP -ON on your wless card too. it will be fine."
