    Is there a work around to connect my mac os 10.5.x to my hp4600n? It prints from my mac, but it just prints the first page 50 times. I feel like I'm close, but need to make an adjustment somewhere.

  • romanfitz Sep 25, 2009

    Right now I am focusing on the HP 4600N to work with my Mac. I think I downloaded all the drivers that I found on the web and the best result I get is that it prints page 1, 50 times.

    I;m sorry. I am trying to set up my HP4600n printer with my mac os 10.5.x. I have downloaded all the drivers I can find. When I send to print, it prints the first page 50 times,

    I am trying to get my HP4600n printer to configure correctly with my mac os 10.5.x. I have downloaded all the drivers I can find, but it just prints the first page 50 times.

  • romanfitz Sep 25, 2009

    same result. page 1 50 times. what is the driver name once it is downloaded?

  • romanfitz Sep 28, 2009

    Thank you, but after I set it up exactly as it said through HP jetsocket and put the IP address in, it appeared to install correctly. However, It printer page one 50 times again. I feel like I'm so close.............what do you think?

  • romanfitz Sep 29, 2009

    I have triple checked all the settings and there is no indication why 50 pages would be printing. In fact, I remember seeing something online as to someone else having the same proble, but of course I can not find it now. I thought by putting in the IP address and setting it for jet socket would work. Obviously I'm missing something. And yes, I have had the same result when plugging in directly.????????

  • romanfitz Sep 29, 2009

    I really thought I was on the right path. I was able to upgrade the firmware.........no luck. Same result.

In the hp software there's a place that says how many copies and you put 0. I think I remember seeing the same problem as you.

    Arwe you sure that there is no default to print 50 copies set on the printer or inthe application as there is nothing that should cause this in the printer logic. I have not come acorss this issue witha ny other Mac OS 10.5. or 10.6 users. The only other thing to do is reflash the printer firmware, again avilable from the link that I sent to you.

    Does this problem occur if you print directly to the printer instead of using the net coonection?

You have 2 options:

1. it is either you install the MAC drivers of the printer to your Mac and the Windows drivers to your Dell and make it work both ways by unplugging or replugging the printer from one computer to another,

or

2. you can get a printserver and connect the printer to that device which will be connected to your network where the MAC and the Dell is connected. This way you can print on both machine without unplug and replugging of the printer.

below are some resources you need.

you can use this device to connect your computers in the network plus the printer.

extreme is a router, printerserver and a network attached storage in one.

hope this helps, if you need more info, please let me know

Is there a driver for the SMC2870W and Mac OS X?

This is a standard wireless ethernet bridge and does not need a special driver for MAC OS. It is a Plug n Play device and should self configure using TCP/IP . Here is the manual : http://www.manualslib.com/manual/154817/Smc-Networks-Smc2870w.html?page=20#manual. Your Mac should see the wireless signal. You could use Safari browser to configure if needed. Apparently the Configuration utility is for older windows systems up to XP. You may need some networking skills to do the configuration without it. Good luck.

How to use telephone modem in mac ? Can you guide me through step by step to use telephone modem in macbook ?

Unfortunately dial-up modems are no longer made by Apple. However, there are still a number of dial-up modems available from third parties - Zoom and Belkin still make USB-based dialup modems, I believe, and Apple did at one point make a modem that may still be available through third-party retailers such as Amazon or Ebay.

Whichever you choose, install the software that it comes with and then follow these instructions:

  1. From the Apple menu, choose System Preferences.
  2. From the View menu, choose Network.
  3. Choose "Internal Modem" from the Show pop-up menu (or the "Configure" pop-up menu prior to Mac OS X v10.1).
    If your computer does not have a built-in modem, select your external modem.
  4. Mac OS X v10.5 or later: From the Configuration pop-up menu, choose Add Configuration.
    Mac OS X 10.4.x or earlier: Click the PPP tab.
  5. Enter your information into the relevant fields. Your username goes in the Account Name field, for example. If you want to copy this connection information to other user accounts on this computer, select "Save password".
  6. You should now be able to connect. If you need to configure DNS servers or other advanced settings, continue to the next step.
  7. Mac OS X v10.5 or later: Click the Advanced button, then click the DNS tab.
    Mac OS X v10.4 or earlier: Click the TCP/IP tab. Choose either PPP or Manually from the Configure pop-up menu, as instructed by your Internet service provider. If configuring manually, type the IP address in the matching field.
  8. Type the DNS server addresses in their field if necessary (click the "+" button first in Mac OS X v10.5 or later).
  9. Click OK.
  10. Click Apply (or Apply Now for Mac OS X v10.4 or earlier).
Good luck!

Is the belkin f5d7230-4 for macs

Hi! Absolutely, the Gateway Router is OS independent. All you need is a computer with a properly configured Ethernet LAN adapter and a web browser to configure the Gateway Router. Any platform that supports Ethernet & TCP/IP is compatible with the router. You may need to provide additional hardware & software (i.e. Ethernet cards and/or software drivers) to ensure that all clients operate with the router.

Installing a later version of mac to to get the printer to work

Here is a link for the Mac OS 9 driver for the MFC-420cn:

http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/bsc/public/us/us/en/dlf/dlf/000000/000600/dlf000680.html?reg=us&c=us&lang=en&prod=mfc420cn_us&type2=1&os=9&flang=4&dlid=dlf000680



If you need a newer version of Mac OS , you would have to purchase it. Mac OS does not update from 9.1 to 10.X
Mac 9.1 is about 10 years old.

In May 2002, at Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference in San Jose, California, Steve Jobs, accompanied by a coffin, held a mock funeral[5] to announce that Apple had stopped development of Mac OS 9. Mac OS 9.2.2, introduced in December 2001, was the final version of Mac OS 9, and the end of the classic Mac OS.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Dell 3300 with OS X 10.4?

I've had a similar issue with a Netgear wireless print server. I had to configure it via Windows but was finally able to get it all working by using the Mac CUPS interface. http://shanecrawford.org/2007/27/cups-for-mac/

Connecting to Mac OS 10.4.3

The installtion disk would not work since the the installation disk is developed to work only in windows based computers, however, there are always alternate ways to configure routers. You can try using the user guide to configure the router manually. If you are unable to configure it, try the live assistance. all the best
