I am unable to get a IBM infoprint 1412 network printer to print
Posted on 2005-03-27
Have a network, windows XP service pack 2, behind a Linksys WRTG router. I have setup 3 network printers. An OKI laser, a Brother MFC, and this IBM 1412 (lexmark e332n). The latter has been troublesome. When I first set it up it worked, but somehow DHCP and BOOTP got disabled and the printer stopped working. So I reset the printers IP address. But when I try to connect to that ip address it times out. The other two printers work fine and there is no problem with the internet. Do I need to setup a static ip for this printer? Do I need to first delete the printer icon? Or port? Or configure a new tcp/ip port? If you have any idea's, I would be very appreciative. And oh by the way, when I first reset the printer's ip I got a standard 192.168.1.108. And this worked for awhile. But now, it seems the printer resets to a 126.96.36.199?
