Question about HP LaserJet 2300N Printer
First let me state that the network cards on these printers are notoriously bad and fail very often. Before attempting any settings, use the arrow keys to bring up the information menu and then printer a configuration. If you have a network cable plugged in then the configuraiton page will print both the basic pirnter configuration page and the Jet Direct status pages which will show the currently set network information. If only one page pirnts then the card is not working, if three pages print the card is working and you will be able to follow the instructions below.
Press the menu button and then use the up and down arrow buttons until "configure device" is shown and press the checkmark. Use the up and down arrows until display reads "EIO" jet direct menu then follow these menu options
Arrow down until display reads TCPip press check.
Arrow down until it reads enable, press checkmark and change option to yes, press checkmark.
Next arrow down to config method press check and then choose DHCP or manual and press check. If you have a router it will automatically assgin an address to your printer when you set it for DHCP, if not, you will need to select manual and then manually input IP address, subnet and gateway.
Once you select manual you will have the option to input the IP address, subnet and gateway using the arrow keys and the checkmark.
