Can't find IP Address

Hi guys,

So i have moved premises this week, got all my equipment across and set up, and get an urgent order to finish by Monday. My grenadier printer is ready to go but when i try and print the PC tells me that it can't find an IP address? I dont have an internet connection until my cabling is completed on Monday and I usually run the printer through a router, so I am attempting to run the LAN cable straight from the PC to the printer. Is this possible as my networking understanding is not great? If it is can anyone suggest the reason for not recognising the IP address.

Any help would be great, thanks.

sounds like DHCP was in charge by the router assigning your main PC's... reconnect it up how it was and it should be fine.

That means leaving the router on without the internet.

Still unable to open IP

Cheers Dave,

I have tried connecting through the router as it was previously but still keep getting the same message whenever i try and print.

'failed to open TCP/IP'

TCP/IP: 192.168.1.101:9100. Any other ideas?

if you google "192.168.1.101:9100" you will find this is a common printer problem discussed on a number of forums. I think your problem is explained in some of the replies given.

Maybe check IP address?
This is on another post from here.

Turn on printer, press menu, press up arrow 5 times, press 1 right, 3 down, 1 right and 1 right and there is your IP address.

Hi,

go into your original discs and look for the program intercon net tool.

You probably still have it installed on the rip pc to be honest this allows you to access the ip and change the ip on the machine.

Had the same problem couple of weeks back.

Helpful advice on here helped me solve the problem.

Cheers

David,

Is it a possible firewall problem?

All Sorted!

Thanks for the advice guys. I eventually got to the bottom of the problem. Inter-Con Net Tool resolved the issue.
