How to change network printer ip address

How to change network printer ip address
Views: 15

How do I change the ip address that windows is looking for in regards to my wireless printer? My printer keeps changing its ip address ie yesterday the address was 192.168.0.2 and now it is 102.168.0.5 and every time it does so, windows doesn't understand that and keeps trying to print to the wring ip address causing me to install the printer as a new one from the new ip address giving me two of the same printers when I look at devices and printers.

I would like to know how to just change the ip address that is being referenced for the one printer instead of installing it separately as an entirely new printer.

Network printer not shown: attached directly to router

Network printer not shown: attached directly to router Icon

My Windows 7 Home Version 64 bit computer is attached to an Ativa router which assigns a dynamic ip address to it, 192.168.2.x. The printer, which is a Konica Minolta, is also connected to the Ativa router directly with a network cable (no host or server computer).

The printer has its own static ip address, which is in the 66.x.x.x range, the same range as the DSL modem (a Netopia) to which the Ativa router is attached.

The printer is installed with current drivers from Windows 7 Update. In this configuration, the printer will not print. If I change the ip address on the computer to a static ip in the same range (66.x.x.x) as the modem and printer, I can print, but it does something to the network settings which makes it "unidentified" and then there is no Internet access.

As soon as I change back to DHCP on the computer, Internet access is restored but I can't print again.

I have a Mac connected to the same network that is able to use the printer just fine (and which also has a DHCP assigned address), so I feel there is nothing wrong with the network itself.

It seems like it must be a problem with the network setup on the Windows 7 machine, but I have tried evey suggestion I can find in researching Windows 7 connection problems and nothing has worked. I have worked on this for 3 days.

 

Assigning Static IP Address to Printer

Assigning Static IP Address to Printer Icon

During tax season we go to the local library to do free tax preparation. We use an online program. We plug in our Ethernet cable to the library's system and each laptop has a static IP to identify it to the network.

What we would like to do now is bring in a wireless printer to use for tax forms. Attached directly to this printer is a small router we have used before. But if we simply pressed the print button, I suspect it might look on the libraries wireless network for that printer.

Besides assigning a static IP to this printer, I'm thinking we might also have to include the MAC address as well so it finds that router connected to the printer.

 

Laptop can not connect to Brother MFC 820CW printer with new router

Laptop can not connect to Brother MFC 820CW printer with new router Icon

I just updated my wifi router and can get web access on my network including my laptop. I can see the network name on my printer when I go through the WLAN set-up. But the printer does not appear on the wireless laptop.

I have access to the printer from the wired computers. Everything worked fine before the update wifi. I have tried putting the Ip address of the printer directly into the laptop when trying to find a printer but it doesn't work.

I'm on HP laptop and the printer is a Brother MFC 820CW. I've tried every configuration (firewalls, homegroups, etc) and can't seem to get the printer to do what it did before, which is show up as an option.

I followed the direction on the printer to reset up a wireless network (even though it is plugged into Cat 5 I thought I'd try.)

Configuring Deskjet 6988 wireless printer to Windows 7 Icon

I ddnt know weate to post this question in networking or hardware but, I do think it is a networking issue. the details area follows:

Windows 7 on mini laptop
Deskjet 6988 wireless printer
Driver downloaded and installed
Printer works wired
Printer connected to access point
HPsetup showing in network so the computer sees the printer
Windows says network nidenrtifiedfor hpsetup.
Printer does not print wireless

I don't understand. The printer is showing up as a network but not printing. in networking it does say network unidentified and also it will not allow me to change network from public to home.

 

How to change HP officejet J4680 printer IP address

How to change HP officejet J4680 printer IP address Icon

I moved from dsl to cable and of course changed routers. I have three computers on a network and and an HP officejet J4680 which had a ip of 192.168.1.68 on the old network and everything worked well. On the new network the printer ip has changed to 192.168.1.2 and the computers can print to the printer ok however I cannot scan a document.

The paperport software seems to be looking for 192.168.1.68 and I cannot find a way to get paperport to look to 198.168.1.2. The exact same problem exists with irfranview.

 

Printer Goes Offline - Need to reset wireless adapter

Printer Goes Offline - Need to reset wireless adapter Icon

I am running Windows 7 and have an HP LaserJet which is connected to my wireless network using an adapter. The printer goes offline everyday when I restart my computer (or it comes out of sleep mode), but even if I get the printer to show as "Ready" (by unchecking or checking SNMP setting), it won't print until I reset the adpater (by unplugging the power).

Then it will work for additional print jobs as well.

The IP address of the printer does not change and I have even tried using a fixed IP address (including one outside the range I set for the wireless router). Is this more likely an issue with the router than with Windows 7?

 

Wireless Vs. Wired network printer?

Wireless Vs. Wired network printer? Icon

Someone I know is looking for a printer and wants one with wireless capability so their son can print from his laptop from anywhere in the house.

If a printer has Network connectivity (LAN port), can't it be connected to the router so anyone on the home network could use the printer?

Are there any advantages to using Wireless rather than a Wired network printer?

 

Epson Artisan 835 Scan Problem and Resolution

Epson Artisan 835 Scan Problem and Resolution Icon

I wonder if anyone is using the Epson Artisan 835 (multi-function network printer)? It's a wonderful printer with excellent features and works a treat. however. The printer is a wired connection (ethernet) to my router.

All features (except Scan to PC) works perfectly. The laptop also connects to it wirelessly without a problem. The issue is that the printers Scan to PC. only shows USB and not the network PC as what the manual claims it does.

* I have installed the Windows 7 64 Bit Combo Drivers and Utilities;
* Epson Event Manager is running in the background and buttons are setup;
* I ran the Scan Settings Utility and everything reports back with successful communications, picks up the printer model and its IP address, etc.
* The Network Settings area (via the Printers Control Panel) has also picked up the network settings ok.
* Even my router has picked up the printer's IP/MAC address, Host Name, etc in its DHCP List.
* I have also white-listed Epson components in Windows Firewall.

But unless the printer is connected via USB the darn thing won't Scan over ethernet.

 

Install a printer on a home network

Install a printer on a home network Icon
There are two basic ways to make a printer available to the computers on your home network: (1)Attach it directly to one computer and share it with all the others on a network. (2)Connect the printer as a stand-alone device on the network itself. This article explains how to do both in Windows. However, you should always first consult the information that came with your model for specific installation and setup instructions.
