HPLaserjet DHCP with router

By metaours ·
Hello

I recently purchased a HPlaserjet 4M plus; and I am trying to connect it to my network. I had no problem connecting it to my computer (xp pro) ethernet pro, as it received an IP address through my DHCP server on my computer. However, when I try to connect it to my linksys befw11S4 wifi router, it obstinately displays the "18 MIO NOT READY" message; and doesnt pick up the IP from the router.

Any ideas?

Many thanks

if you are saying you think problem is that it is not picking up dhcp address from wifi router here is my checklist for that:
link light?
router configured to be dhcp server?
reset print server (pwr off/on) while connected to router?
i would put it the hp printer on a static ip address for troubleshooting and stability. make sure is on same subnet mask as router. make sure gateway is set to router (if applic).
start with link light. no link light? check media type settings in print server and router (if applic)
otherwise, it is not clear to me how you are wiring stuff?

If they're on the same network the printer may still be connected through the DHCP service as previously setup in XP.

Check the router setup to see if it shows MAC addresses for connected computers and the printer.

As mentioned set the printer to use a static IP address with matching subnet mask. Input the gateway for the router instead of the computer.
Disable MIO interfaces that are not in use.

The default DHCP addresses given out by the Linksys router is in the range of 192.168.0.100 thru 192.168.0.254, with a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0. The gateway would be the address of the router, by default 192.168.0.1. If you haven't made any changes then you can set the printer to use let's say 192.168.0.150. I don't think the router would block this traffic because it's within the LAN. To see what the settng for the MIO board print the test page using the printer's menu features.

Or does linksys use 192.168.1.1?
