HP 6520 Wireless Printer - Will not connect to wireless network
Posted on 2016-09-22
I have changed nothing and everything was working fine. I came home from town and the printer was offline and I am unable to get it to connect.
It has or had a static IP address because DHCP kept changing it. My wife claims I jury rig everything I touch because I run mostly Linux Mint. She has wndows. As I said I never changed anything that would cause it to fail. I never changed the printer.
I printed network test results. The only thing that came up was it said under Settings No Filtering and it said Fail. I do not have MAC filtering set up.
I can connect something when I try to configure the printer differently. I can get it to connect to 192.168.251. 255. This is not right.
Could I be connecting to one of 14 networks in the neighborhood? Of course this is not on my network here in our house.
Since I changed nothing and it does not connect to my network, it is broken or there is some other reason it does not connect.
Any ideas ? Thanks in advance.
