HP Wireless Network printer No longer Works from only Dell Desktop

Q: HP Wireless Network printer No longer Works from only Dell Desktop

I have been living with this issue for a couple of months and wish to now resolve issue with your help.

Issue:
HP OfficeJet 4630 wireless printer no longer prints with my Dell D531 Desktop computer via WLAN, however works with all other WLAN connected devices, e.g., cellphones, netbook, laptop, and tablets. The print spooler indicates print finishes ok but nothing actually prints to
Dell desktop..

What I have done to fix issue without success:
1) Uninstalled/re-installed wifi printer several times on Desktop;
2) Reconnected HP printer to WLAN couple of times;
3) Properties for both desktop and printer show the same internet address;
4) Tried using MS Fixit printer trouble/diagnostic tools with no success (doesn't find issue); and
5) Read through this and other forums with no help so far.

System:
OS Name Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 6.1.7601 Service Pack 1 Build 7601
RAM 4Gb
BIOS Version/Date Dell Inc. 1.0.13, 2/9/2009 (Latest)
Graphics Name NVIDIA GeForce 210
Any reasonable advice is appreciated.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

My Brother MFC 640CW printer used to work when I logged into Windows XP but now it only works when I log into Linux, how can I make it work again in Windows?

I am convinced the problem is with the printer configuration in Windows but I cannot work it out. I am sure the network and printer are configured correctly because I can both print and access the internet under Linux. And under windows I can use the internet and even ping the printer’s dynamically assigned IP address (allocated: 192.168.1.102) but the printer does not work. It would not work even when I turned off my firewall (ZoneAlarm) so I don’t think that is the problem.

I am not sure if it means anything but when I go into the printer configuration under Windows the Port the printer is set to use is something link “dhcpp0”. Could the problem be caused by a mismatch between this name and the actual IP address?

Here’s some background:

I recently purchased a wireless Brother MFC 640CW printer/scanner/fax and connected it to my existing (DHCP) wireless network. The network consists of a PC laptop and wireless router. The IP address of the router is 192.168.1.254 with DHCP addresses starting at 192.168.1.100 (the laptop usually gets assigned this address).

I installed the Brother MFC on the existing network using Windows XP Home and managed to successfully use all print/scan/fax functions. I then decided to give Linux a go and installed the latest Ubuntu version on my laptop (dual booting with WinXP). I had n... Read more

Hello, I don't know where to begin. When I log on and my start programs run, I receive a couple different messages about something not being in the library. I would check right now before writing this, but I'm afraid my wireless connection would take too long to fix again. I've been having problems for the past week. Very irritating. Lots of time spent trying to unfold this disaster.1) I do have a hijack this log if someone would look at it. 2) Maybe two or three months ago, I updated Internet Explorer7 to IE8 and now it doesn't work at all. I'm stuck, forced to use Mozilla. 3) The wireless router IS in my house and it IS encrypted. YES, I DO have the password key... 4) For the past couple weeks, if I am in a program like MOBSTERS by MYSPACE my computer will freeze. It happens every time, SHORTLY after going into the MISSIONS tab. I have to do a hard restart or it'll stay frozen for the entire day.5) On my wireless connection... IF/When I click "repair".... It will work for maybe 15-30 seconds MAYBE!! and then it will restart my computer. 6) I can't afford to pay for help, but I do have a few rare coins I would happily exchange for some help here.

A:wireless network works, but no internet for desktop

Most likely cause is having ICS enabled. Disable it from any and all connections, reboot and try again.

If that doesn't fix the problem then it's probably your firewall not liking the 192.168.0.x subnet.

I have a new Dell V305 Printer which has Wi-Fi capabilities. We have a large family with two Vista 32bit laptops and two Windows XP laptops. I am wondering if it is possible to connect the printer directly to the wireless network that is set up. There is no ethernet port on the printer so it cannot be plugged into the router, which is up to date. We no longer have a desktop to connect to the printer which would make this much easier.
I have tried searching for the printer with on with my Vista laptop, but it doesnt show up. I know there must be some way to set this up so all of the laptops in the house can wirelessly print a document. Please Help!

When the print spooler is turned on I get a message that says the printer queue is full. (The printer queue is empty.)

If I try the printer without the printer spool on i.e. print directly to the printer, I get a message that says "Unable to create a print job."

This printer was working with Win 10 until recently. The scan function works as it should. So the computer does see and interacts with the printer through the usb port.

Something must have changed in the latest Windows 10 release to gum up the works.

Hi--

I'm trying to set up a home network where files/printer on my desktop can be shared over a wireless network. Here's how it's set up:

Desktop is connected to the internet via usb CDMA, which is my only internet connection. All laptops at home connect to the internet through the desktop's CDMA internet connection via a Linksys Wireless Router. there are no problems connecting to the internet, simply 'sharing' the CDMA modem's connection to the local area network.

CDMA modem-desktop-wireless router (via LAN)-laptops (wireless)

Now, I've set up file and printer sharing on the desktop, but since the router get an IP address from the desktop, at the same time giving IP addresses to the wirelessly connected laptops, I cannot 'see' the desktop computer from my laptop.

Now my question is: Is there a way to make all the computers visible to each other using this setup? the key is access to internet, which is only possible via usb (which is why I can't connect the router directly to the modem).

Any help on this will be greatly appreciated

Normally, it makes some humming warm-up noises after it's turned on, and now that sound starts but stops abruptly after a second. The red light is on and not blinking. I can't print a demo page either. Paper and toner is in properly, and I've tried unplugging and plugging everything. Can anyone help?!

I've got an IBM ThinkPad 600X and I was connected wirelessly to the internet at a WIFI location when I discovered that I couldn't send an email from my ISP's Webmail site. After a google search, I discovered that I needed to upgrade Internet Explorer 6.0 with SP1. So I began with Windows Update and chose the proper upgrade. In the middle of the download, Windows Update stopped and gave me an error message with something about proxy server settings. It wouldn't let me continue the upgrade and now I can't access the internet anywhere. Windows Update placed a "Resume Windows Update Installation" file on my desktop, but when I click on it, it fails to continue because it is unable to find sites to download the update due to proxy server settings. I've checked all my network settings and my wireless is working fine, but when I open IE, it gives me the usual "The page cannot be displayed" and nothing I've tried works. This computer has no other access to the Internet, but wireless (there's no NIC port), so I'm having to research with my desktop. Can anyone help? Please?

Hi, this just started this morning, (ie was working fine when I used it yesterday from my desktop), but when I clicked on the ie icon on my taskbar it tried to go to the following instead of msn.ca (which is still shown as my homepage in tools/internet options) : https://login.secure.co1.msn.com/wls...&wa=wsignin1.0 and it says "This page cannot be displayed."
Now Ie works fine from metro, but I prefer my favorites displayed like ie9 instead of 50-70 start page icons. So, I usually go straight to desktop when I open windows.

Now I have NOT changed anything.

As I said all was working well yesterday when I shut down, but it no longer works from desktop. It is ONLY msn that won't work. Any other site works fine as a homepage, but I have had msn for so many years that I don't care to change it.

I have not checked into my registry as I really don't like messing with it. It's too easy to screw up.
Also using ie from the start page and telling it to display on desktop also leads to the above page trying to load.

Thanks for any help.

Hi. For the past two months I have been running a wireless network via a Linksys router in my house. I'm using a Dell Inspiron 7200.

For the most part all has been fine. However, from time to time, even as I surfed the web I would find my connection was no longer working. Most of the time I'd just wait a minute or two and it'd restore itself. Sometimes I'd have to manually disconnect from the network and re-connect. It wasn't much more than an annoyance that happened about once a day.

As time went by, however, the disconnections would occur more frequently. Last week it got to the point where I was being booted offline multiple times per session. The router was never unplugged. Resetting it didn't correct the problem either.

I would begin having to restart my computer to reconnect to my network, but that began to fail as well. I finally deduced the problem lay with the network card. I tried to run the Windows "Repair" option, but all it did was freeze it up once disabling the card. Now I cannot connect to my network at all. I tried installing a new driver, but 40 minutes later it was still "installing". The icon at the taskbar often shows Windows "searching for network address" for minutes on end. Short of buying a new network card, any repair ideas?
 

A:Network no longer works

sounds like your card got deepfried or something..

personally, i would see no repair option except for soldering on the card, but that's not something to do yourself if you don't know what to do..

my advice: get a new card.. they cost next to nothing nowadays.

Last week the wireless connection on my PC upstairs quit working. I have 2 PCs and 2 PS3s. One PC(my main one) and PS3 are downstairs in my "gaming room" with a wired connection to my router(Linksys WRT54GL). My other PC(connected with a linksys ethernet bridge in bedroom,used just for email really) and other PS3(in living room) had wireless connections.
Everything was perfectly fine for years,then last week the PC in my bedroom no longer would connect. At first I thought that the bridge went out due to it's age and I bought a usb wireless adaptor. That did not solve the problem. After investigating further with my limited knowledge I saw that the IP address assigned wasn't valid for internet use(196.168.255.2 or something to that effect). I manually changed to IP to one that would be in range(192.168.1.112) and it did not help.
The lights on the bridge seem correct(power,lan and wlan). I took the PC downstairs and it is able to connect with a wired connection. When I run ipconfig with a wired connection everything looks fine,but when I try with the bridge or adapter the IP is invalid. I tried to ipconfig /release and then ipconfig /renew but I get an error when trying to renew. I even ran a program called "Winsockxpfix" and it did not solve the problem either. I disabled the firewall and it did not solve the issue. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Hi, everybody!

Thanks for reading! I've been reading this forum for a couple hours now, and am actually a bit more confused than I was. I'm certain the answer is in here somewhere, but I'm not having any luck, or I am misunderstanding something.

Basically, I rebuilt my network over the weekend, to include a subnet, and can no longer connect my desktop to the remote PC. My old router was reset to defaults and re-configured. My PC has been wiped, reinstalled, and fully updated.

The error I receive is "Remote Desktop can't connect to the remote computer for one of these reasons: etc" I've only seen this error in the past when the PC I connect to was powered down. I have confirmed that everything is still set up properly on the PC I'm trying to connect to via an associate, and it is not powered down.

There is NO WIRELESS ANYTHING in either setup below:

Nothing you did on your PC or with the routers should matter. Something must have changed with the Remote PC. Are you using a dynamic DNS service to access it? Or just using an IP address? Either way, make sure you are really addressing it.

This isn't actually a new issue but I've just used an external USB mouse since it occurred. The dell touchpad no longer will respond to anything. All of the touch buttons at the top work fine as does the keyboard. I just don't know if its a hardware issue or a driver issue. I installed the latest drivers and it still doesn't work so I'm assuming it could be hardware.

What also struck me as odd is that after installing the dell touchpad program and drivers I can't seem to launch the dell touchpad utility. It asks me to run the program but it never actually runs the computer acts as if I hadn't done anything.

However, after installing the most recent Dell update, it no longer works - not even showing up on the list of connected devices. I have tried updating the drivers on HID-compliant mouse and PS/2 compatible mouse on the devices list, to be told they are already up to date. 
Is there a fix for this? The box specifically mentions "There's no software to install" - I don't know if that includes drivers or not. My USB connected headset is still working fine, and that uses drivers, so I don't know what could be the issue. 
I have tried using different USB ports, with no effect.

I have 2 computers hooked up to Linksys EtherFast 10/100 5-port Auto Sensing Switch EZXS55W using Cox's Motorola SURFboard modem.

My computer is XP Pro SP3 P4 2.80GHz with 2GB of RAM.

2nd computer is XP Home SP3 Celeron D with 1GB of RAM. Compaq Presario SR1410NX.

We were able to share the printer and file a couple weeks ago and now all of a sudden we can't. I noticed my brother was grayed out in McAfee's Network Manager and EasyNetwork and I was the same way on his. Did a search about it and saw the tool McAfee offered for a network problem and ran it. That seemed to make things worse because now we do not exist to each other. Tried setting up a network through Windows but it's not working.

Ran ipconfig /all and there is a couple differences that I don't know how to fix.

I've it and the laptop since November 24th this year; they were a bundle deal.The mouse had worked fine til I tried to use it today after the windows update last night. A new battery for the mouse didn't change a thing.The usb piece that plugs in- my laptop doesn't seem to acknowledge it? Either way the mouse itself just blinks red at me and won't do a thing more even when I try restarting it via connect button on it. Any solutions?

In the process of renovating a VERY old Dell Inspiron 2650 to give to disadvantaged kids, I tried using the USB receiver in that laptop. Didn't work, so I used a wired mouse instead. The receiver had been plugged into my Win 7 Toshiba laptop, but when I re-inserted the receiver back into that laptop, the mouse doesn't work. I've tried removing both the receiver and the battery in the mouse, per some advice I read on the Web, but that did nothing. Have also tried downloading the driver. Regardless, when I plug the receiver into a USB port on the laptop, it "beeps" indicating that it recognizes the receiver. . . but it still doesn't work.

If I plug the receiver into my Win 7 desktop, the mouse works.

What's wrong here?

I just noticed that this hotkey combination has ceased working .  I don't use it that often, so I'm not sure how long this has been the case.  Other Fn/hotkeys are still functioning properly.  My W530 is running Windows 7 SP1 64bit, and both the Lenovo and the Windows Updates are current. I did search out the following post:https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-11e-Windows-13-E-and/Hotkey-f9-wireless-radio-control-don-t-wo...but I'm not sure it applies to my case.  In particular, I don't want to re-install the "Lenovo Communications Utility" because I use the Windows function for connecting to Wi-Fi, and I recall that one of the related Lenovo overlays screwed that up to my detriment in the past.  (Generally I stay away from most of the Lenovo bloatware, but some, like the Fn/F5 feature, is very useful.) -- JCW2

I have a user with Windows 7 OS. She had Auto Arrange icons turned off, as she prefers to keep her icons in a particular order and location on her desktop. Last week she got a trojan. We ran virus scans to remove. Since then, even though Auto Arrange is UNchecked, her icons rearrange each time she reboots. I tried checking it, rebooting, then unchecking it, but when I checked it and rebooted, it came back up unchecked, and with her icons all on the left. I have researched this for hours and I can only find 2 solutions - "uncheck auto arrange" (it IS unchecked), or install some kind of desktop icon manager (which we shouldn't have to do). Any ideas?

Hi, I'm a forum virgin so please be gentle with me.

I have a desktop and laptop sharing files and an internet connection via modem to D-Link router setup.

My laptop connects to the network via a Netgear PCMCIA wireless card when mobile and via an ethernet cable when sitting on the desk.

The wireless connection does everything it's supposed to do (network and internet access and sharing).

The ethernet connection only shares files but can not get an internet connection to be established.

I have Norton Internet Security but I think everything's alright with that otherwise I wouldn't be able to connect wirelessly. Correct? Are there different IP setup's for wireless/ethernet.

Why can I 'see' my desktop's files and share the printer via ethernet but I can't establish an internet connection unless I go wireless?

Everything's fine with the desktop.

Sorry for the ramble and thanks in anticipation.

I apologise in advance if i irritate you but i litterally have no clue what is what when it comes to laptops.

Ive had my Acer Aspire 5920 for a good few years now, it ran perfectly fine on vista for a good 3 years, not a hitch or care in the system. Then out of no where it goes missing for a week, and my mums ex boyfriend had upgraded it to 'windows 7 extreme edition' and none of the buttons of the sides worked, including the most important one- the wireless.

now i understand that a driver synaptics or something fixed the others, and it did. but still the wireless and all the buttons to the left refuse to work.

i cant ask the ex for help because he left on very bad terms and i have none of my original discs left. My friend has now got me running windows 7 professional 32 bit and i have the glowy buttons working, but not the wireless.

the reason i need wireless is soon im going to uni where i cant plug it into the wall to get the internet-that and the socket for the internet cable has started to melt and warped out of shape.

i cant seem to find ANY advice on this matter, that or i just simply dont understand the jargon. I dont care if it means going back to vista as that was fine to work with anyway - but how would i go about doing that if so?

Sorry to be a pain in the dariair.

I've had wireless on this pc before. A while back, we had a tech come out from out internet provider to fix a few things, and we told him we already have a few other devices on our wireless network, so it may be a better idea to connect through an ether-net cord to our main pc for a more secure connection.

That has worked fine for the most part, but now there's a different problem, and I think I need to be able to connect wireless in order to fix it.
If it matters, the problem is, that any game I try to patch via the game launcher, times-out.
I actually spoke with a CSR from Square Enix, he said it may have to do with the port-forwarding, then I spoke with a rep in technical support from our local provider, and she said there is no port forwarding through the(ir) ether-net but it is available through wireless.

So, that's essential what has brought me here.
I'll upload a couple of pics, so you can actually see that:
A: There is no wireless enabled on my pc at all and
B: There's no wireless driver - just the one on my driver list that, tbh, I don't know much about.

I've already tried uninstalling the driver then re-installing, (didn't detect anything).
I've tried power-cycling my modem.
I've messed around with every option in the "Network and Internet" settings in my control panel.
I've checked all around the outside of my pc, JUST IN CASE it's weird and has a switch somewhere that enables/disables wireless.
Just to confirm, yes, there is indeed... Read more

Is your Acer laptop 32-bit Win7 or 64-bit Win7? I'm going to guess it is 32-bit Win7.

If it was 64-bit Win7 you'd have no problem right now. My guess is that since your old desktop had WinXP (32-bit no doubt), your Acer laptop was also a 32-bit version of Win7.

I'm assuming that your printer is now installed on your new 64-bit Win7 desktop, and will go from there. You now want to "share" that printer, which is hosted by the 64-bit Win7, so that your other network machine (your 32-bit Win7 laptop) can print to it.

You simply need to install the 32-bit (x86) printer driver on your 64-bit Win7 system, as an "additional driver". The hosting 64-bit Win7 system will thus actually have TWO drivers installed for this printer which you've marked as "shared"... one for its own 64-bit local/USB printing needs as well as for 64-bit client ...

I have a windows 8 64 bit system. There is a laptop with windows 7. I have my canon mp470 printer plugged into the windows 8 system via usb. Up until a few days ago we could printer from the windows 7 laptop through the network. I have done 2 things since then. 1.) I uninstalled mcaffee internet security and installed nortons internet security and 2.) I tried to update to windows 8.1 which failed part way through the update then it said the system was reverting back to windows 8.0

Now I can't print from the laptop. (nothing changed on the laptop only on the windows 8 system).

Sadly windows 8 is almost a foreign language to me. Please someone help me fix this.

I have a printer (with wireless capability) wired to desktop (Windows XP) and a wireless laptop (Windows 7). My question is, can the printer be connected wirelessly to the laptop as well as wired to the desktop, or does everything have to be wireless?
Another question: If I want to share files between the two computers, do they both have to be the same operating system? (one is Windows XP and the other is Windows 7)
 

A:Solved: Wireless Laptop/Wireless Desktop (via wireless adapter)/ printer

I would guess that the printer can be connected by ethernet and wireless, but I've never had one with both capabilities so I don't really know.

I once had a printer that worked OK connected to a network plus connected to another computer by USB. Even so, that may depend on the particular printer.

There may be two operating systems that cannot file share with each other but I don't know which ones that might be. Windows XP and 7 are fine sharing with each other (but not claiming that nobody has had any problems).

Hi guys - here goes: Upgraded win7 to win10 yesterday on my desktop (free from MS). So far so good, EXCEPT - I can no longer print from my win10 laptop - it cannot see the printer connected to my desktop. Nor can I see my desktop in the network from my laptop, which I suppose is why I can't access the printer. It was working fine before the upgrade. I've tried checking all the network settings to allow other computers to see and share the desktop. Desktop is connected by wire to my router, while laptop is wireless to router wifi. I have good internet access on both computers. Only thing I can think of is that the two network names don't match - desktop says connected to Network 2, laptop says connected to (my name)'s Wireless. I thought of changing the name of desktop network to same as laptop, but there doesn't seem to be an option for that. Or maybe trying to create a new network from my desktop, but then it starts asking for an 8 digit no. off my router so I haven't pursued that any further (I don't recall ever having to do that in win7). Workgroup names are the same on both computers. Like I said, it worked before, even though the network names were different, so maybe that's not the problem, although I can't figure out what else it could be. Any ideas to help me?

Thanks.
