Hello,
I have XP(HE) SP3 wireless to NetGear WPN824 and a Laser Printer connected by a ethernet cable to the router.
The PC recognises the network but cannot find the printer.
Do I have the correct cable (it is black); how do I tell if this set up needs a different ethernet cable; what is crossover, etc and how do I tell one from the other?

Thanks for your reply -

No, I don't know how.

The printout from the Dell 1320c has details:

Network
Firmware Version 8.83
MAC Address 08:00:37:75:35:4a
Ethernet Settings 100Base Full(Auto)
TCP/IP
Get IP Address AutoIP
IP Address 192.168. 1. 2
Subnet Mask 255.255.255. 0
Gateway Address 192.168. 1. 1
Status Ready

plus some other stuff about LPD, Port9100, FTP, SNMP, E-Mail Alert, EWS and IP Filter...

I do not understand much but I can follow step by step instructions in simple terms.

Hope to hear more,

Regards,

D :o

Add Printer
choose Local Printer but do not Autodetect
choose Create a new port and select Standard TCP/IP Port
enter the IP address 192.168.1.2
install drivers either from CD or via Windows Update

If Emeralds method does not work, try this: Click start, then run. Type cmd and press enter. In the prompt type net use 192.168.1.2 and press enter. See if that works, don't count on it though.
