    Hey Guys,

    I just got a 4 port belkin router and am trying to get my hp laser jet network printer to be seen on this network. It is plugged in with network cable but nothing.. I have just gotten a new laptop, so the printer never was installed on the laptop to even go in a change any properties, but nonetheless, shouldn't the router pick up or assign an IP to the network printer?

    any help is GREATLY appreciated..
    thanks

    you can email me at: [email protected]

    Kind of helps to know which model printer. I would think that the printer would be set with a static IP address right off the bat. At least that has been my experience with them.

    Looking at some info on the internet it looks like most HP printers are set to the IP address of 192.0.0.192 by default. But you can find out the IP address of the printer by printing a configuration page from the Printer itself.

    Looks like you can set it back to the factory default:
    Then you can change the IP address to whatever you want by telenetting into the Machine or gleaning the IP address with the arp -s command.
