Re: laserjet 2300 and wireless print server

the printer needs to be recognized and configured on the network so the pc can recognize it.have you set an IP address for the printer.how is the rest of the network?i mean, is there a multi purpose server that you can install a driver on and set to share it from there?

Re: laserjet 2300 and wireless print server

can you just temporarily attach the printer to the pc via a parallel or other cable and install and configure it then go back to the network?

Re: laserjet 2300 and wireless print server

plugging the printer directly into the computer is not an option at this time. But what gets me is the computer in question already has a laserjet 2300 installed on it through the wired network so the driver is already installed on the pc for the second printer

Hi

Go to the following link and download the HP network printer wizard 6.0. It is a software program used to install wired and wireless printers.Used it for the first time the other day, and it work very well on a HP print server.
