Question about Xerox DocuColor 12 Printer

Open Question

The printer attempted to join the network but in not receiving any data. This may be caused by MAC address filtering. If MAC address filtering is enabled and you would like to keep it enabled, add the MAC address of your printer to the list of permitted devices for your wireless access point or router before continuing. Print the Wireless Network Test report from your printer to find the MAC address of your printer.

Then select "Add printer" and choose the first option (Local printer attached to this computer)
An errormessage will appear saying they were unable to find printer. Click next to find the printer manually...

Now select "Create a new port" and choose standard TCP/IP... Ignore the list of different types of printers, now select "From Disk" and then click next... Once The computer recognizes the printer, it all should be in order...

SOURCE: My new HP - Officejet

I tried everything, even called HP and they tried to sell me a new printer. So about 6 hours into trying to fix it, I decided to just reset my router (unplugged it and let it reboot). It was fixed.

How to Unlock Addresses on your iPod Wi-Fi


<p>The iPod touch has a built-in wireless network adapter that allows you to join Wi-Fi networks; however, in some cases the wireless access point to implement a Wi-Fi network can be configured to an iPod touch join the network. You can configure the access point so that it no longer blocks the iPod from the wireless network. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Tap "Settings," then "General" on the iPod touch. Touch "About" then scroll down to "Wi-Fi address." Make a note of the 12-digit hexadecimal number listed under that title, which is the address of Medium Access Control encoded in iPod. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Connect your computer to a numbered port on the back of the wireless router using an Ethernet cable. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Log on to the computer. <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. Start a Web browser on your computer. Directly to the router's configuration utility. The tool is listening on a specific web address that depends on the router. For example, if your router is a Linksys WRT54GS, navigate to the address "192.168.1.1". <br /> <p><br /> <p>5. Open the configuration menu for the MAC address filtering. For example, in a WRT54GS, click on "Wireless" then "Wireless MAC Filter". <br /> <p><br /> <p>6. Remove the iPod's MAC address in the list of prohibitions aimed at the router's configuration utility. For example, in a WRT54GS, click "Edit MAC Filter List". A new window will appear. Double-click the field that the iPod has the MAC address, then press "Backspace" to make the contents of the field. Click "Save Settings". The window is closed. Click "Save Settings" in the main browser window. At this point, your router will be configured for iPod touch for the network. <br />

My laptop is connected to my unsecured wireless network via my linksys router, but my iPad and other laptop will not connect. I am getting an error message that says, "Unable to join the network...


I would try to set up the network with a new SSID due to settings being saved in some devices, and because someone else may have a linksys network set up that you may accidentally be connecting to.

After that, try basic security settings.

Also, make sure you don't have MAC address filtering enabled on the router. To check this, you will have to login to the admin area and look for MAC address filtering.

I need to either block certain ip or mac addresses or only allow a select few. how can i do this.


Well, when it comes to ip addresses, you must either turn off dhcp (which automatically gives out ip addresses to devices joining the network) and assign static ip addresses to each individual device on the network, or simply decrease the number of ip addresses your router's dhcp gives out by narrowing the dhcp range. Blocking ip addresses is an ineffective way of preventing access to the network. MAC Address filtering, on the other hand, is much more secure. Usually this is locating under Wireless - MAC Filter in the router's configuration page. When you get to the menu, you usually have the option of making an allow or deny list. If you are having problems with unknown devices, I would go with allow only option, and enter each of your device's MAC addresses. The one main problem is that you will have to do this every time a new device is added to the network, but it makes the network much more secure.

When trying to connect my iphone 3g to the wireless router i am getting the error message unable to join the network USR5461 even though I am using the correct password. what do i need to do to correct...


I wonder if your router is set to perform MAC address filtering. If so, you have to either find the MAC address of the iPhone's wireless card and add it to your router's appropriate list, or set your router to not filter by MAC addresses.
Just my 2 cents... Carlos

MAC ADDRESS FILTERING MAY BE ENABLED ON MY WIRELESS ROUTER?


should be an option in the console (in browser go to 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1, etc)

MAC Filtering just means that you can set up a set of MAC addresses (Machine Address) of units you want to be able to access your network. If you didnt set the MAC of a unit it will not be able to join the network. So mac filtering is a way to limit connection with your network.

Need To Secue Network


hello!

there are so many way you can secure your wireless network.

CHANGE THE SSID AND CHANNEL

1: Open the router page 192.168.1.1 >> type this in the internet explorer address bar.
2: Click Wireless from the left menu
3: The settings to Wireless section of Router appear.Click Channel and SSID.
4: Change the Wireless Network Name (SSID) To identify your wireless network. To change the SSID, type in the SSID that you want to use in the SSID field and click Apply Changes.
5: Change the Wireless Channel to 1, 6 or 11. If there are other wireless networks operating in your area, your network should be set to operate on a channel that is different than the other wireless networks. Select channel from Wireless Channel drop-down menu. Click Apply Changes.

CHANGE THE WIRELESS MODE

Using the Wireless Mode Switch. This switch allows you to set the Router’s wireless modes. There are several modes. Note: Some modes may require firmware updates to be enabled. Select wireless mode from Wireless Mode drop-down menu. Click Apply Changes.

a) 802.11g only - this mode will allow only 802.11g-compliant devices to join the network, keeping out any slower 802.11b devices.

b) 802.11g & 802.11b - this mode will let 802.11g- and 802.11b-compliant devices to join the network.

c) 802.11n & 802.11g - this mode will allow N1/draft 802.11n- and 802.11g-compliant devices to join the network, keeping out any slower 802.11b devices.

d) 802.11n only - this mode will allow only N1/draft 802.11n-compliant devices to join the network, keeping out 802.11g and 802.11b devices.

e) Off - This mode will turn OFF the Router’s access point, so no wireless devices can join the network. Turning off the wireless function of your Router is a great way to secure your network when you are away from home for a long period of time, or don’t want to use the wireless feature of the Router at a certain time.

DISABLE SSID BROADCAST

This advanced feature will not broadcast your network’s SSID. Doing so will keep your network name hidden from computers that are scanning for the presence of wireless networks. To turn off the broadcast of the SSID, remove the check mark from the box next to Broadcast SSID, and then click Apply Changes.

ENABLE WIRELESS SECURITY
To access the security settings, click Security.

Setting WPA Security

Note: To use WPA security, your wireless network cards must be equipped with software that supports WPA. WPA-PSK uses what is known as a pre-shared key as the security key. A pre-shared key is basically a password that is between eight and 39 characters long. It can be a combination of letters, numbers, or characters.

a) From the Security Mode drop-down menu, select WPA-PSK (no server).
b) For Encryption Technique, select TKIP or AES. This setting will have to be identical on the clients that you set up.
c) Enter your pre-shared key. This can be from eight to 39 characters and can be letters, numbers, or symbols. This same key must be used on all of the clients that you set up.
d) Click Apply Changes to finish. You must now set all clients to match these settings.

ENABLE WIRELESS MAC ADDRESS FILTERING

The MAC address filter is a powerful security feature that allows you to specify which computers are allowed on the wireless network. This list applies only to wireless computers. This list can be configured so any computer attempting to access the wireless network that is not specified in the filter list will be denied access. When you enable this feature, you must enter the MAC address of each client (computer) to which you want to allow network access. The Block feature lets you turn on and off access to the network easily for any computer without having to add and remove the computer’s MAC address from the list.

Setting up an Allow Access List

1. Click MAC Access Control.

2. Select the Allow radio button to begin setting up a list of computers allowed to connect to the wireless network.

3. Next, in the MAC Address field that is blank, type in the MAC address of the wireless computer you want to be able to access the wireless network, then click Add.

4. Continue to do this until all of the computers you want to add have been entered.
