First install the printer driver on your computer and then change the printer port to IP port with the printer's IP address.
The printer's IP address is assigned from the printer's menu Network setup.

Installed on a network....keeps rolling IP


If your network is assigned by DHCP have a chance after each shut down your printer will take new IP address...you can set up IP address manually from printer menu using buttons on top.
Just print menu map to see where you can find that option.
Good luck!

Installing hp laserjet 4100dtn over the network using tcp/ip addr


Hi admin30:
Here is some info for you.
EIO menu (networked printers)
The EIO (enhanced input/output) menu appears only when an EIO device is installed in an EIO slot
on the printer (such as an HP JetDirect print server). The items in the menu depend on the particular
accessory product installed. If the printer contains an HP JetDirect print server EIO card, you can
configure basic networking parameters using the EIO menu. These and other parameters can also
be configured through HP Web JetAdmin.
Table 27. EIO menu
Item Values Explanation
CFG NETWORK=NO NO
YES
Select whether or not you want to use
the HP JetDirect menu.
NO: Bypass the HP JetDirect menu.
YES: Use the HP JetDirect menu. You
must change this to YES each time you
want to use the menu.
Note
You must select CFG NETWORK=YES to
display the following items.
IPX/SPX=ON ON
OFF
Select whether the IPX/SPX protocol
stack (in Novell NetWare networks, for
example) is enabled (ON) or disabled
(OFF).
DLC/LLC=ON ON
OFF
Select whether the DLC/LLC protocol
stack is enabled (ON) or disabled (OFF).
TCP/IP=ON ON
OFF
Select whether the TCP/IP protocol
stack is enabled (ON) or disabled (OFF).
ATALK=ON ON
OFF
FG IPX/SPX=NO NO
YES
Select whether you want to use the IPX/
SPX menu and set IPX/SPX protocol
parameters.
NO: Bypass the IPX/SPX menu items.
YES: Use the IPX/SPX menu items.
In the IPX/SPX menu, you can specify
the frame-type parameter used on your
network.
The default is AUTO, to automatically set
and limit the frame type to the first one
detected.
For Ethernet cards, frame type
selections are EN_8023, EN_II,
EN_8022, EN_SNAP.
For Token Ring cards, frame type
selections include TR_8022, TR_SNAP.
In the IPX/SPX menu for Token Ring
cards, you can also specify NetWare
Source Routing parameters, which are
SRC RT=AUTO (default), OFF, SINGLE R, or
ALL RT.
CFG TCP/IP=NO NO
YES
Select whether you want to use the
TCP/IP menu and set TCP/IP protocol
parameters.
NO: Bypass the TCP/IP menu items.
YES: Use the TCP/IP menu items.
In the TCP/IP menu, you can specify
BOOTP=YES or DHCP=YES for TCP/IP
parameters to be automatically loaded
from a bootP or DHCP server when the
printer is turned on.
If you specify BOOTP=NO and DHCP=NO, you
can manually set the following TCP/IP
parameters from the control panel: each
byte of the IP address (IP), Subnet Mask
(SM), Syslog Server (LG), and Default
Gateway (GW). You can also manually
set the idle timeout period.
Print an HP JetDirect configuration page
to verify your settings. However, note that
the print server might overwrite selected
parameters with values that ensure
proper operation.
Table 27. EIO menu (continued)
Select whether the Apple EtherTalk
protocol stack is enabled (ON) or disabled
(OFF).

Need to install network printer to DLink Router


It has been a few months, so you probably have resolved this -- but just in case someone else is looking to find out the IP address on the internal print server of an HP Laserjet 4000n printer so they can set it up on their network, here are the steps to find the IP address on the HP JetDirect internal print server:

1. Have the Ethernet cable plugged in to the router and the JetDirect 600n card and power it on.
2. Make sure display screen on printer says "Ready".
3. Press the Menu button on the printer until you see Information Menu.
4, Press the Item button on the right (+) side until you see Print Configuration page.
5. Press the Select button and a configuration page should print.

One page is the printer's configuration and the other page is the print server configuration page. If you have a good JetDirect card, and good connection to your router, the IP address of the printer, plus its subnet mask and default gateway should be shown on the EIO configuration page.

If the printer has been manually set with a static IP address, subnet mask and default gateway that will not work on your network, you will see the settings will indicate "Configured by" User Specified.

To clear those settings and allow DHCP setting, perform a cold reset on the JetDirect card, by powering off the printer, holding down the green "Go" button and powering it back on until you see "COLD RESET," let go of the green Go button, wait a couple of minutes, then run another configuration page to see the freshly assigned DHCP address of the print server.

Hope this helps someone.

Hi How to check the print server is in the wireless network or not!! Check under the Router Setup page Router's ip address... Check if you are able to ping the Print Server Ip address....Since it the router will assign a ip address from DHCP range.. If you are able to ping the router's ip address and the print server ip address then the print server is in the Wireless LAN... Try the following steps. 1. Go to run and type "cmd" press enter 2. type ipconfig. 3. Check the range of ip address...if its 192.168.0.XX 4. Try pinging that ip address.. 5. If able to ping the router and print server.. Then the wireless network is fine... Somehow some of the printer's don't work with some of the print servers.. Check if D-link does support the printer or not!!!! for this particular model of the router...
