printer is offline

HP Recommended
HP OfficeJet 6950
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Dear, I have got HP OfficeJet 6950 this printer is connected via WIFI from main router (DHCP).

From main router is LAN (cable) to the other router which is switch to AP mode (the other WIFI the same name and the same IP spool) 

In second WIFI is connected NB. But this NB do not see printer. Why?

 

IP NB 192.128.1.118

IP PRINTER 192.168.1.116

Physical the same network.

Thank you for help.

You can setup the notebook using 123.hp.com 

Also assign a static IP on the printer.

AUTO STATIC IP

Dear Will,

static IP has been setting.

 

I know I can use 123.hp.com but why? This is normal network configuration.

 

When I get NB and take to the other WIFI (main router the same as printer) all is OK.

The standard printer software on the notebook may not be able to see the printer advertisement.

That sounds like a router issue. I don't know if the software will make a difference?

Instead of AP mode, can the router be put in Bridge mode and use the same SSID(names) and passwords as the Main router?

I wrote wrong.

 

I use old TP-LINK TL-WR541G.

 

I use one of the LAN port as input and the others LAN (WIFI) as output. DHCP is  on main router.

 

In this "hacker" configuration is probably any  problem.

As long as DHCP is turned off in the WR541G router, it is a good LAN to LAN config
