Windows 7: How do I install an HP Laserjet 4000 printer

How do I install an HP Laserjet 4000 printer

I've inherited an HP LaserJet 4000 printer which I know is in good working order and was working over a network at work until last week.

I want to be able to print to it wirelessly at home from two laptops and had assumed that if I plugged the printer into my wireless router using an RJ45 cable, Windows 7 would do its magic with the printer wizard and let me print to it directly.

Could anyone tell my what I need to do.

I'm running Windows 7 - 32 bit.
I have a cabled connection between the printer and the router.
Windows can't detect the printer.
I've temporarily disabled the firewall (Zonealarm)

Thanks

Hiya pal and welcome to the forums
Make sure it doesn't have a static IP address from your Works network (change it to your home network IP settings or set it to use DHCP)

Thanks for the help Poorman. Much appreciated.

On the back of your advice I searched the net to find out how to reset the IP address on the printer and found the following in case that's of use to anyone else..

Working through the options, I was easily able to set the printer to dynamically allocate an IP address and the Windows 7 add network printer wizard did the rest.

----------

HP LaserJet 4000, 4050, 4100, 4500, 4550, 5Si, 5SiMX, 5000, 5100, 8500, 8550, 8000, 8150 printers, HP 2500c Professional series, HP Business Inkjet 2200, 2250, and 2600 printers

To configure TCP/IP parameters from the control panel, use the following instructions:


Press the MENU button until HP MIO 1 (or 2), or HP EIO 1 (or 2) appears.

Press the ITEM button until CFG NETWORK = NO appears.

Press the PLUS or VALUE button until CFG NETWORK = YES appears.



NOTE: The CFG NETWORK = XXX (XXX being YES or NO) is a toggle, not a permanent setting. Changing it to YES allows the settings to be changed at that time. It will appear as CFG NETWORK = NO each time this menu is accessed.

Press SELECT or RESUME.

Press ITEM repeatedly until CFG TCP/IP = NO appears.

Press the PLUS or VALUE button until CFG TCP/IP = YES appears.



NOTE: The CFG TCP/IP = XXX (XXX being YES or NO) is a toggle, not a permanent setting. Changing it to YES allows the settings to be changed at that time. It will appear as CFG TCP/IP = NO each time this menu is accessed.

Press SELECT or RESUME.

Press the ITEM repeatedly until BOOTP = YES* appears.

Press the PLUS or VALUE button until BOOTP = NO appears.


NOTE: When using BootP or DHCP, keep the setting BOOTP = YES *. The BootP or DHCP server will configure the TCP/IP parameters on the HP Jetdirect. No other TCP/IP configuring is necessary.

Press SELECT or RESUME.

The following two steps apply to the HP Jetdirect 610n cards only:

DHCP=YES appears.

Press the PLUS or VALUE button until DHCP = NO appears.



NOTE: When using DHCP, keep the setting DHCP = YES *. The DHCP server will configure the TCP/IP parameters on the HP Jetdirect. No other TCP/IP configuring is necessary.

Press SELECT or RESUME.
