View Full Version : Settings to allow ethernet connection from printer to Linksys router to work

I am trying to connect a new Samsung CLX-3160FN all-in-one color laser
printer into my home network.

I have a Linksys WRT54GS router which is hard wired via ethernet cable to
(1) a desktop computer and (2) the new Samsung CLX-3160FN. Also, two
notebook computers use this network.

The Linksys router is set for DHCP. The samsung can be set to (1) DHCP or
(2) static IP address. Presently, it is set to "DHCP".

I can ping the IP address but cannot get a connection to work correctly.

What settings does one need to include in the Linksys router settings and
also the printer settings to allow the new printer hardwired to the router
to work on the network properly?

If it matters, I am using Zone Alarm with Antivirus. I disabled it at some
points of testing and the printer failed to network properly then, also.

Some information from the Linksys WRT54GS router below. Supplementary
information only.

Hi
Set the printer to a static IP that is out of the DHCP range, and install
the printer's software on all Networked computers.

Thanks! I have set the printer's IP address to a static value above the
DHCP range.

So what do I then need to do (1) in the Linksys router settings, and (2) in
Windows XP on computers on the home network? Any way to avoid installing
the printer software and just installing a printer driver, instead?

Hi
You do not need to do any thing in the Router.
In most case AIO need the specific software. Some would not work without the
software, others (with drivers only) will provide basic printing and None of
the advanced capacities of the AIO.
