connecting a canon mg2950 to a 4g modem

Q: connecting a canon mg2950 to a 4g modem

hi guys,

trying to connect a canon mg2950 printer to a vodafone portable modem via wifi to allow phones and laptops to print to it...

i have setup other wireless printers to a broadband modem where the printer has a control panel that was easy enough to connect to the existing ssid then install the printer driver...this particular printer has no control panel...i googled the manual and the instructions are pathetic...

under connect to wireless modem it says to check instructions for your wireless equipment.

is there a program you can install to talk to the printer to configure network settings...i havent a clue

there is a function called access point mode which says you can connect directly to the printer if no wifi / network system exists...but i cant see this is the right way to do it as surely then you will have no internet connection...your wifi will be connected straight to the printer and thats all...

very frustrated,please help point me in the right direction

i do remember having to setup an adhoc network to a printer before, but this has no instructions regarding this

thanks

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: connecting a canon mg2950 to a 4g modem

According to the Canon website you can use the WPS method: http://www.canon.co.uk/support/cons...setup/pixma_mg2950_wireless_connection_setup/

Or the standard method for these type of printers is to run through the setup on a computer to get it connected to the wireless.

Hi - I have a wireless cable modem from Time Warner in my bedroom and the signal was really weak in the living room, so I ran an ethernet network cable through the aprtment and hooked it up to the line in on a TP-LINK TL-WR841N modem. Could someone suggest how I set up the tp link to use the other wireless modem's network? I'm kind of new to this but can work my way through. Will it have the same network name and ip? Thanks for any help!

Hi All...

I just got a new PC on Monday - here are the specs off the top of my head (I am at work, PC is at home) - HP Pavillion 764, 2.6 Ghz., 512 MB DDR Ram, Lucent Modem, 120 GB hard drive, 128 MB nVidia GeForce MX 440 video card, Windows XP Home.

I connect via MSN 8 dial up. No cable/dsl in my area at all.

Ok, with my old PC I would get a consistent connection of 32000 bps. Now, with the new PC I am connecting at 21.6 or 24000 bps - which makes for a huge performance hit since I am an online gamer.

I was ok with the 32k connection - a lot of latency - but this is worse with the 21 & 24k connection.

I am still using the same phone lines, dialing the same #'s and using the same version software for internet connection.
The only difference is the PC, OS & Modem really.

Why am I connecting slower now and how can I fix this?
Do you think I should swap modems?

Thanks

Hi

My hard drive died so i am having to reinstall everything and my printer won't reinstall !! It is connected to the wireless and i've printed out the network config and everything appears OK.

When i try and install it using the installation disc the printer cannot be detected.

I tried manually installing it through "Add Hardware" this worked, yet it won't print so i guess it hasn't installed correctly :-(

Any help would be greatly appreciated as this is driving me crazy as it worked perfectly before my hard drive had to be replaced !!

I have had this wireless printer for a few months hooked up to my router and it's worked perfectly printing from 2 ipads, my laptop and my wife's laptop.

Now it will not print from my laptop. The other three devices are all working just fine but my laptop give an error when I try to print.

It says:

"The printer is offline.
Check that the printer cable is connected and the printer power is on."

I know that my laptop is connected to the router because I'm typing on this website. I know my printer is connected because it's printing from other devices.

I tried several different changes including removing the printer and re-installing the drivers/software from the website and also the original disk. When doing that I was getting an error saying that I need to logon as administrator to install software...I am logged in as admin so I don't know what's wrong.

I did a restore last night because I had changed so may things and nothing worked.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hello guys. I have a rather unusual problem without an apparent solution and it drives me crazy because I tried everything possible.

- Canon MG5550 Wireless Printer
- Desktop PC with Windows 10 PRO
- Old laptop with Windows 10
- Wireless Router ZTE F668

In the past, I had an old router for which I paid 15$(second hand from a friend). I had that router for a gazillion years and it worked perfectly. I could connect the printer, laptop and 3 smartphones to it no difficulty.
Now I purchased 300mbs internet service and I was given a router by my ISP(ZTE F668), and I cannot connect the printer to the PC anymore. The old laptop works just fine with the new configuration, but the desktop PC cannot find the printer. I must mention the fact that the desktop is connected with the router via fiber-link cable, but the laptop is connected to the router wirelessly.
I tried messing with the IP of the printer, I reset the printer, I reset the router, I even reinstalled my Windows and nothing works. I cannot keep my printer connected via USB cable to the desktop because I would like them to be in separate rooms.
After all this trouble, I realized that probably the issue is coming from the router because I cannot find another explanation. Since I cannot use the old router because it doesn't support high speeds, what are my options?

I'm running WinXP Home on an HP Pavilion and have connected a Canon BJC-210 printer via a Cables to Go USB to Parallel Adapter cable.

I have followed the instructions and set the port to USB001 during the running of the Install Printer Wizard. When the Wizard finishes and tells me all is honkey-dorey it asks if I want to print a test page. I click yes but the page never prints.

I have opened the printer folder and gone to the Troubleshooter which I have followed to the end, doing everything from re-starting and re-installing to attempting to change drivers &c. It will not allow me to delete the current driver (which is the Microsoft Driver) and it will not allow me to upgrade (because it says I already have the best driver installed).

I tried the Cables to Go online technical support but either the tech got tired of talking to me or the connection just up and quit. I also tried resolving it by email with Cables to Go but I am now three days into it and all that has happened is that we are on step two of the troubleshooter. At this rate the posatronic brain will have been invented before I can print something on my computer.

So I come to the one place where I have NEVER been disappointed (sometimes frustrated, but never disappointed).

I see two answers: 1. Some little switch someplace that I just have not found or 2. Cables to Go has my thirty bucks and I have a piece on non-functional crap that will never do what I want it to do.

I am having an issue that just popped up when I connect my Canon SX200IS digicam to my Win7 x64 HP Pavilion PC via USB. 1 or 2 seconds after the default sound Windows makes when connecting a device, the screen goes black with a colored distortion and then the PC reboots. According to the HP site my BIOS and all drivers for my hardware are up to date. I suspect some kind of video issue only because of the weird things happening with the display right before the crash. I don't connect my cam that often but it last worked on 2/25/10 the last time I downloaded pictures. I need help I guess, figuring out what has changed on my PC since then because it did work before without issue. I did remove the SD card and insert it directly into the PC's SD Card slot and that works without issue.

This is my first time to this site - if my full specs aren't shown from my profile please let me know and I will add them to this message.

Thanks,

A:MTP USB Device Error When Connecting Canon Camera

I am not familiar with your camera and I do not have an answer to your specific question; but, I will tell you what I do to transfer pictures from my camera to my computer and it avoids all the device recognition problems one might encounter.

I remove the flash memory from my camera and do my transfers directly through the card reader. If the flash memory is good, the read is always 100% successful. Also, the transfer, itself, is usually faster and depending on the camera, sometimes a lot faster.

I have several cameras and each one has its own proprietary, camera-to-computer connecting cable. Using my computer's in-built card reader also eliminates the desktop clutter of several cables. Once you try it that way, you may decide the same as I -- that those interface cables are clunky, cluttery and unnecessary.

Hope this helps.

In a few weeks my contract with my local cable ISP will be up and I am seriously thinking about going to AT&T DSL. AT&T has a nice package deal - they provide a modem & I have to hook it up (they charge $200 for a serviceman to come out).

My question: Is there much, if any difference in connecting a DSL modem as opposed to my current cable modem? My thinking is just to swap out the wires and carry on.

Any suggestion or input is appreciated!

A:Connecting DSL Modem

a few months ago I switched from cable to DSL.(ATT).The package came with an installation CD and very straight forward installation instructions.I was up and running in about 15 mins.
One thing about DSL though.Generally the further away you are from the main telco office,the slower the speed.The outer limit,I believe is 18,000 feet.So that might be a good thing to know.I am two blocks from the telco office so my bandwidth is pretty good(paying for 3mb's and get consistantly about 2.7(close enough).

A:modem not connecting

It could be a number of things but the most probable from your description is a feature that disconnects you if there is too much idle time. There is a setting for 15 minutes as an example that would kick in after 15 minutes of no activity. That's one half the other may be noise on the line. That could cause your not being able to log on without a reboot.

You didn't say if you have a dial up modem ISP or high speed internet but I'm assuming dial up from your description. Also, do you have Call Waiting ?? Last would be a firmware upgrade for your modem but tell us this, did it ever work right, no disconnects, no time outs, etc. ???

Is there other way to solve this problem without bothering the client pc?
 

A:Connecting new modem

JohnWill's procedure for configuring a secondary router as a switch and, optionally, wireless access point follows.

Connecting two SOHO broadband routers together.

Configure the IP address of the secondary router to be in the same subnet as the primary router, but out of the range of the DHCP server in the primary router. For instance DHCP server addresses 192.168.0.2 through 192.168.0.100, I'd assign the secondary router 192.168.0.254 as it's IP address.

Note: Do this first, as you will have to reboot the computer to connect to the router again for the remaining changes.

Disable the DHCP server in the secondary router.

Setup the wireless section just the way you would if it was the primary router.

Connect from the primary router's LAN port to one of the LAN ports on the secondary router. If there is no uplink port and neither of the routers have auto-sensing ports, use a cross-over cable. Leave the WAN port unconnected!

Cable comes into the modem and goes to the router. The router then feeds my Vonage phone system and all my computers. The only computer that connects wireless is my wife's laptop, everything else is hard wired.

99% of the time this setup works flawlessly, but there are times I want to hook my main pc directly to the modem (for troubleshooting). It will not connect to internet that way. I suspect the reason is that when I installed Win 7 Pro I told it that it would connect to my local network.

There has to a way to connect that one pc directly to the modem. This where I need the help.

Thanks for any help.

A:Connecting Modem to PC

Every time you attempt to connect to the Internet, your ISP checks the MAC address of the 1st component that's connected to the modem, which normally is your router.
However, if you did not clone the MAC address of your main PC's network card to the router when you set up the router, then your ISP will be seeing your network card's MAC address when you connect the modem directly to your main PC. And since your ISP does not recognize the network card's MAC address, it will not allow you to access the Internet.
If that's the case, then just clone the MAC address of your network card to the router at the router's online administrative site.
You can find your network card's MAC address by doing this:
Click Start, type system information in the Search box, click on System Information, click the + next to Components and then Network, and scroll down to MAC Address.

A:Connecting a usb modem to a router

You need a modem/router my friend. With 4 ports on the back and preferably wireless
You can get them for as little as 20, then you just configure it with the settings that you received with your pipex installation.
Then you'd either hardwire your pc downstairs to it via an uber long cat5e cable, or put a wireless card in it and connect to the router wirelessly.

All the above benefits, plus you're getting a better firewall that what windows has to offer.

Does anyone have any experience with this? I am thinking that the modem got a jolt through the phone line, which damaged it.

Do you think this will have to be replaced? are they expensive/hard to install?

A:Modem stopped connecting

Debby,

The problem you have is a Telephone Type of problem usually refered to as, 'inability to break dial tone'.

It can be either the dialing device, OR the phone line itself.

If you can dial out on a regular Phone, then the problem is with your Modem's Phone circuitry. A new Modem will be required.

Replacing a (PCI Slot) Modem in other than a Laptop is a rather simple choir. It's basically unplug the old one and plug in the new one. AND if you get an exact duplicate of the current one....no setup would be required!

AND PCI Modems are Cheap!!!

I'd like to be able to connect to my modem wirelessly because with recent rearranging, I just don't have an ethernet cable long enough to reach my PC. If a problem ever comes up with my connection (which frequently happens), I just power cycle my modem and router instead of just going in the modem settings to see if there's any abnormalities. I was wondering if it is possible to connect to my modem and troubleshoot through my wireless router.

Router model is NETGEAR WGR614v9
Modem model is AMBIT U10C018

I read the modem manual and the IP for the modem is 192.168.1.1, but that's also the IP address to access the router settings. So when I type in 192.168.1.1 in my address bar, it brings me to the router only.

Any help is appreciated!

I have a sierra wireless compass 597 usb modem through sprint. I have 2 computers one running xp the other vista. I already have a router netgear wpn824v2 that I am using right now to connect a regular modem to the 2 computers. I want to switch to the usb modem and have both computers use the one usb modem. What kind of equipment do I need to get to do this? Thanks.
 

A:Connecting a usb modem to 2 computers

There are 3G routers that are compatible with that unit, see this article.

You can also do it with ICS on the machine that has the modem connection to share the connection with the other machine.

Take a look at this Microsoft ICS (Internet Connection Sharing tutorial.

Hello

We have a Buffalo WBMR-G54 Wireless ADSL2+ Modem Router connected via Ethernet cable to our main pc. We also have a Gateway laptop which we can use on the wireless network created by the Buffalo Router and we use the internet through the Buffalo Router through the network cable. This has worked fine for weeks now, but this morning the main pc will not connect to the internet. The router is still working ok as the laptop connects through the wireless connection. I have hooked up the laptopt through the network cable and accessed the admin page of the router, so the cable is working fine. I can see the network card on the pc using ipconfig. I have tried repairing the connection and have uninstalled and re-installed the network card in the pc and have also tried several network cables but to no avail. I cannot ping from the main pc to the router. I think thats all i have tried. Anyone any ideas why it suddenly has stopped accessing the internet.

Thanks in advance

Stuart
 

A:Modem Router not Connecting

The problem could be firewall, hardware or viral in nature. The first thing I'd do because it's easy would be to restart all the devices involved. So unplug the router and modem from the wall wait thirty seconds and plug the modem back into the wall. Let the modem fully boot and then plug the router back into the wall and let it fully boot and then boot your computer. Check to see if you have internet access.

If that didn't work then I'd try removing the router from the equation. Connect your PC directly to the modem with the ethernet cable. If that didn't work then at least we pretty much know that your computer is the source of the problem, but you did fairly well in establishing that with your first post.

If you'd tell us the make/model of the router, the modem, and the details of the ISP service, we could probably be more help. It would be nice to know what version of Windows you run too.

Hello,

I've tried using the search function but could not find anything related to my specific problem.

When I connect my Alcatel 330 speedtouch modem to my PC it reboots. When I then try to start the PC I am unable to start windows XP (it just hangs). After many experiments I found that if I disconnect my modem (connected via UCB) then XP boots no problem.

I have done a full windows re-install but the problem stil persists.

In the BSOD I am given the following error:

DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

STOP: 0X000000D1 (0X00000000, 0X00000005, 0X00000001, 0XF74C2C19)

atapi.sys - Address F84C6C85 base at F84C10000, DateStamp 41107b4d.

Has anyone experienced this before?

Any ideas?

Many thanks

I want to connect two computers together with a wireless router. I have a computer with an internet connection via a DSL modem downstairs and want to be able to access the same internet connection on my other computer upstairs. It is not practical to run a CAT cable from one to the other so I will use a wireless router. The computer upstairs doesn't have an ethernet card. I am not sure exactly what I need to do this beside the wireless router. Can anyone help?

Thank you.

Installed 98se and was able to connect....installed a firewall and download manager...could not connect again, error 650, isp does not respond to request.....

I checked my password and modem properties...tried changing compression, fifo speed, and error control...

NOW, when 98os installed it installed two modems!...i disabled one that was on com 2 because it would not connect.
the one that connected is on com 3...NO conflicts shown.

In this computer on the other hd w 95, modem is on com 3 and is working as i type!!!

I do not see any difference in installations between 95 and 98 modems.

hd w 98 is unplugged at the moment...will unplug this hd w95 and plug in 98 hd to check it...

what should i try next?

thank you...

Hi There.
Afew days ago i was trying to connect my laptop to my ps3.
To do this i was changing setting etc but never got it to work anyway..
The next day i turn the computer on and can't connect to the internet.
I think it was something to do with dns
I uninstalled and reinstalled my usb modem and software and always get full connection bars and says its connected, but in the bottom right hand corner it says network "no internet access" with a yellow triangle over it .
This is driving me nuts!
It was because i was changing all of the settings in network and sharing senter, but being the wally i am, never wrote down the original settings. Whatever i did i am fairly certain i did it in the change adapter settings.

I hope any of that made sense to you.
If you need any extra info let me know.
Thankyou for trying to help my problem!

I am running windows 7.. i did a quick ipconfig /all and it says my dns servers are:
139.130.4.4
203.50.2.71

I really hope you can help me..
