You don't say whether you are trying to connect via an ethernet cable, or via a wireless connection. Try the following in order: Some of these may seem obvious, but it helps eliminate the more simple problems first: (general guidance, as I'm not sure which windows version you are working with. Did you upgrade from Vista to Win 7?)
Assume you have enabled the network on the laptop FN + number key or physical switch?
Check if you have the Ethernet and wireless drivers for this laptop first from the Toshiba support site and install them
In Control panel / device manager, see that the network devices for wireless and Ethernet Lan are appearing and have no warning mark next to them. If they have, you need to check what the problem is by clicking on the device shown and following the instructions given (repost your findings if you need more help)
See if you can connect to the internet using the ethernet lan connection cable (direct wired connection). If it does this ok, the problem lies with the wireless connection.
Assuming the wireless card in the laptop is present and is functioning, the next step is to check the router settings. Using the supplied CD that came with the router, or clicking on the router symbol in control panel / network and open the wireless security settings page, reset the wireless password and make a note of it. Save settings. When setting security, choose 128 bit security for more safety.
See if the laptop now picks up the network and when prompted enter the password you just created. If this works you are finished.
If it still does not work, try disabling Windows Firewall ( a common problem) and see if that then allows for connection.
If it STILL fails to work, try the laptop on a friends network. If it connects then, the problem is with your router. If it does not work, you have a failing wireless card in the laptop.
To confirm this, obtain a USB network dongle and test it on your laptop with your own network. You can get a replacement card off the likes off eBay and this is not difficult to fit.
If you unplug the cable from the printer to the PC and print the MENU MAP, does it print slow or at normal speed? If it prints slow, try following the directions below. If it prints at normal speed, try removing the printer from the print queue and reinstalling it. Also, download the PCL5 drivers and reinstall it. Good Luck.
Print a MENU MAP and a CONFIG page. You will need this info to put the settings back in the printer. 1. Turn the device off. 2. Turn the device on. When the memory count begins, press and hold the CHECK MARK button. Continue holding down this button until all three device control-panel lights flash once and then remain on. This might take up to 10 seconds. 3. After the message SELECT LANGUAGE appears on the display, press the ^ button until COLD RESET is highlighted. 4. Press CHECK MARK . The device performs a cold reset and then continues its power-on sequence. 5. Check all I/O settings and reset any customer-set device configuration values.
COLD RESET sets ALL control panel menu items, including network settings back to factory defaults. This is where the MENU MAP and CONFIG info come into play.
To reset the product settings, you must select Restore Factory Settings (or Restore Default Settings) in the Setup menu. Note: This function will reset all settings including Copy settings such as paper type, paper size, print quality, and brightness. For products with an integrated network interface (wired Ethernet or wireless) or Fax feature, this function will also reset the network and fax settings.

Using arp command (UNIX)
From UNIX you can use the arp command to assign the IP address to the network interface card.
Perform the following procedure:
1. Turn off the print controller and the main body printer.
2. Log in as superuser on a host on the same subnet as the network interface card. However, if
the server resides on another subnet, complete this procedure to store the IP address in the
network interface card.
3. Find the MAC address of the network interface card. The address is printed on the Status Page
each time you turn on the print controller and the main body printer.
4. Edit the hosts file (usually /etc/hosts) or use NIS or DIS to add IP address and node name of
the network interface card. See the network administrator for the IP address. For example, a
network interface card with a name of printfast and an IP address of 22.214.171.124 has the
5. Add an entry to the arp cache for IP address and Mac address of the network interface card,
arp -s 126.96.36.199 0:40:c8:0:0:ff
RS6000 (AIX) requires the ether option after arp -s. For example:
arp -s ether 188.8.131.52 0:40:c8:0:0:ff
6. Check the print controller and the main body printer to see that the network interface card is connected
to the network. Turn on the print controller and the main body printer.
7. Send a ping command to the network interface card to verify it is running on the network, as
ping 184.108.40.206 or ping printfast
The network interface card will not respond to this ping command but it will read its IP address
from the packets.
8. Turn off the print controller and the main body printer and back on again and then send the
ping command again to verify that the network interface card obtained its IP address. A confirmation
message displays as:
220.127.116.11 is alive
9. Remove the entry from the arp cache using the following command. Specify the network
interface card either by its IP address or by its name, for example:
arp -d printfast

Chapter 2 Setting Up the Network Interface Card
By using MAP (Management Access Program) included the CD-ROM that comes with the network
interface card, you can automatically identify the network interface card on the network and set it up
for TCP/IP by using Web Utilities. To use this method to assign the IP address to the network interface
card, the following procedure should be performed on computers in advance:
• TCP/IP correctly configured
• IPX/SPX-compatible protocol installed
• MAP installed and MAP setup correctly executed
About how to set up TCP/IP and how to install IPX/SPX-compatible protocol, refer to Windows Help
menus for example. For MAP, refer to “Using MAP (Management Access Program)” in this chapter.
To change an IP address already assigned to a network interface card, you can not use the
arp command. Use Web Utilities instead. These methods also allow you to set up subnet
mask and default gateway, etc.
Refer to “Chapter 7 AppleTalk Configuration”. Accessing Web Utilities
The network interface card is provided with an HTTP server having Web Utilities. By accessing this server,
you can change settings of the printing system. There are two ways to access Web Utilities, through a Web
Browser, either through Netscape Navigator, version 4.x or greater or through Internet Explorer, version 4.x
• Use MAP to have the network interface card on the networks identified automatically, thereby accessing
• Use a Web Browser to type the IP address assigned to the network interface card, and thereby access
the Web Utilities. For example:
If you designate the proxy setting in your Web Browser you cannot access the Web Utilities.
For more information see your network adminisrator.
Chapter 2 Setting Up the Network Interface Card
2-6 Konica Network Interface Card INSTRUCTION MANUAL Using MAP (Management Access Program)
A utility called MAP is provided on the CD-ROM that comes with the network interface card.
This program automatically identifies the network interface cards on the networks and lists them on Web
Browser screen. From this Web Browser list you can select a network interface card to change its settings
and control Web Utilities.
It looks like a communication issue. It seems that the printer is quiting to communicate with the computer intermittently.
If the printer is on network, you may want to reset the printer IP address and reinstall the printer driver to test.
Cold reset unlocks menus that have been previously locked and sets all control panel menu items (including EIO settings) back to the factory defaults. However, it does not clear the values in the
NOTE: Before performing a cold reset, print a menu map and a configuration page
1. Turn the device off.
2. Turn the device on. When the memory count begins, press and hold the check button. Continue holding down the check button until all three device control-panel lights flash once and then remain on. This might take up to 10 seconds
3. After the message SELECT LANGUAGE appears on the display, press the arrow up and arrow down buttons until COLD RESET is highlighted.
4. Press the check button. The device performs a cold reset and then continues its power-on sequence.
5. Check all I/O settings and reset any customer-set device configuration values.
Print a configuration page from the Printer INformation Menu after restarting the printer. The IP address would ideally be a different one if your network is a DHCP network. If not, you will have to manually configure the IP address on the printer. You may do that by accessing the Configure Menu on the PRinter control panel.
Try configureing the printer driver to the new IP address. It should solve the issue.
If that doesnt work, you may want to download a new driver from the website and install it.
If you press the test button once on the network interface (a small black button near the network port) This should print out the network settings, you can then confirm the IP Address etc set on the printer.
I belive the defult setting on the network card is for DHCP= OFF, so if you default the network card you may not get the result you required.
The netword card can be set to defult by holding down the test button for more than 10 seconds. This should reset the network settings to factory defults.
You can unlock the menu on the 6312 by pressing the MENU and ENTER buttons and keep them held down for 5 to 6 seconds you can then access the menu.
The IP Address, Sub Net Mask and Gateway can be set via the control pannel menu on the pritner.
If the IP Address set in the pritner is valid for the network you should be able to get to the printers web page, you can then make changes to the pritners and network card configurations.
Sounds like you don't have a print or print/scan option in stalled. All machines come with network port but only works if option is intalled. You can check if you have the option installed, maybe just not activated. At the back just abouve the network port there is a cover that covers 2 sd card slots. If the is no sd card installed you will not be able to print to the machine. If the is a sd card installed contact me again and i will help with activation
It has been a few months, so you probably have resolved this -- but just in case someone else is looking to find out the IP address on the internal print server of an HP Laserjet 4000n printer so they can set it up on their network, here are the steps to find the IP address on the HP JetDirect internal print server:
1. Have the Ethernet cable plugged in to the router and the JetDirect 600n card and power it on.
2. Make sure display screen on printer says "Ready".
3. Press the Menu button on the printer until you see Information Menu.
4, Press the Item button on the right (+) side until you see Print Configuration page.
5. Press the Select button and a configuration page should print.
One page is the printer's configuration and the other page is the print server configuration page. If you have a good JetDirect card, and good connection to your router, the IP address of the printer, plus its subnet mask and default gateway should be shown on the EIO configuration page.
If the printer has been manually set with a static IP address, subnet mask and default gateway that will not work on your network, you will see the settings will indicate "Configured by" User Specified.
To clear those settings and allow DHCP setting, perform a cold reset on the JetDirect card, by powering off the printer, holding down the green "Go" button and powering it back on until you see "COLD RESET," let go of the green Go button, wait a couple of minutes, then run another configuration page to see the freshly assigned DHCP address of the print server.
I was able to locate this information for you on tht Toshiba FAQ section of their tech support site. Here is it, verbatim:
