Re: Printer Pinging problem?
Make sure your wireless workgroup/domain are the same as your wired network. If they are, you should reinstall the printer from control panel. Choose add network printer, choose the proper workgroup/domain, you should see the available printer, select it, it may need to download drivers and install them.

u need to set the ip on printer it self..then what u need to do le..put the cd in...go to computers>>right click on the cd icon>>explore>>utill>>ccc>>uninstall l2...then restart the computer..dnt connect the usb..reinstall the printer...
The LaserJet 2600N has a built-in print server and can be connected to the local network (normal ethernet cable) directly. While printer sharing via Windows should work, I found it much more convenient to access it without the need of a hosting computer - you do not need to switch on the desktop PC for printing from the Laptop, for example, its also printing faster.
Print internal configuration page and check for IP address in printed sheet and try to compare with the driver information Check for LED at network card if it’s on Try to send ping command to IP address to verify connection and if reply is confirm Uninstall driver and reload and try to search the printer with IP or hardware address while loading driver If still any problem it could be network card have problem need to be replaced
The last time I checked, you cannot set up a local printer using a TCP/IP port. A local printer is physically connected to a computer via a parallel, serial (very old), or USB cable. If the printer is connected to a switch, hub, or router via an Ethernet cable, it is by definition a network printer and the driver install must reflect this. I don't understand why it is able to print out the test page after the install. If you open up Control Panel -> Printers and double-click on the HP Laserjet 2600n in there, it will bring up the local spooler for the printer. You may have a bunch of print jobs queued up in there that it cannot currently send to the printer. You may want to clear the queue first (cancel all print jobs). Let me know if you have problems clearing the queue & I can give you instructions on how to do that one too.
Try connecting this printer to a different network wall point in the building. If still no change then move back to original wall point and try changing the connection at the Switch end in the comms room.
If still having problems then try pinging the printer to see if it gives time out or execessively high pings. Got a PC on the network and in windows open a "command" prompt and type ping -t XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX where the address of the printer should be place of the x's.
If linux open a console and type the same thing ping -t XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX.
I am having a similiar network problem, I setup the 2600n on my small-office network, plugging it into an 8 port switch along with a computer and IP camera....then connected the switch to the default router...this worked for a while as my router provided the printer an internal IP, but somehow the IP reset itself to an external IP,and print jobs I send now to the 2600n from my network will not print. I can't seem to access a configuration window to set a static IP address my router will recognize.
Sounds like low toner to me.
If the printer is connected by USB or parallel cable to one computer, go to that one. Click start-programs-HewlettPackard-HPlaserjet utility. The utility should let you see how much of each toner color remains.
