Network Connection (LAN) for HP 650C

I just started a small office and need to install an HP Designjet 650C plotter. I do not have a server but use the cable network already installed in the office with a router for my computer, high-speed cable access, and VOIP telephone service. I want to connect the plotter so multiple users can plot via the router. It has a network card but I cannot set up using my computer because it does not have a USB connection. Can someone help me and/or explain the procedure for getting the plotter to work from my computer via the network router? Thanks in advance.

I have a HP 650C, I just bought a Parallel to USB adapter on Ebay. It can plug straight into a computer and then be shared. I also have network card on a HP 750C+ and have it connected straight to my router through an Ethernet connection and it works fine.

Plug it directly into the router and set the printer up on your Win2k/Xp as a network printer via the new printer wizard. The router will allow it to pull an IP number and you will find it on the network that way. It does not have USB because it was meant as an office printer and the option was network adaptor when purchased. If you look at the card in it, you can see it can be swapped out for another adaptor.

Trying to connect a hp designjet t610 to a network using a usb

You cant from a network on a USB connection. USB connections are for "local" printers. "add" the Designjet T610 printer to your other PC under "printers and devices" tab. Good luck !

How can i install hp designjet 5500 PS on my com puter using network cable? My plotter (hp designjet 5500) do not have USB port instead it has netwok port from which one can install via the local network...

You are doing some mistake.

All peripherals will attach directly to the main server or main system.

Then from the main system you attach the network switch and share the peripherals with other
system.

you connect the printer, plotter, scanner etc to your computer directly through the aproprite cable /
port.

There are free software you can download for this designjet 750c by finding at websearch like yahoo.com or msn.com. Just type the driver name for this printer and you can download it for free. Most of the printer driver now can be downloaded online with free cd key. Just let it try. or Maybe the printer you are installing is not compatible with windows 7. try to read you printer's user manual.
