Canon iR2230 Networking
Posted on 2014-01-16
First let me state that I'm an electrician by trade, with an electronics background, who regularly gets the job of installing & setting up networks. So, while I have familiarity with networks and some of the terminology I'm definitely no expert.
I'm on a job site utilizing a fixed IP address cable modem/router (4 port) which is linked to a Netgear FS526T Smart Switch.
The owner's priority is to get two used printers online for network use. Both printers are patched to the Netgear.
Printer #1 is an HP LaserJet 4200 (IP 192.168.0.107) which I configured with the modem's gateway IP and subnet mask and is working fine.
Printer #2 is a Canon iR2230 (Printer/Copier/Fax/Scanner; IP 192.168.1.115) which I've also configured with the gateway IP and subnet mask. However, this printer will not show up on the network.
I've tried pinging from my laptop using its IP and used its front panel to try doing an outward ping to no avail-no response either way.
Without the ethernet cable connection the unit's display indicates "check network connection" with the cable connect that message disappears.
I've used a Fluke CableIQ to verify the integrity of the cable as well as to observe that there is communication with the network.
I've also directly connected (via USB cable) my laptop to the printer and that works fine.
This is a printer with a lot of capabilities but also a lot of configuration possibilities, so I'm guessing I must have some setting incorrect within the printer?
If a list of all the current configuration settings (Network) are needed I can provide that.
