1. Eliminate USB cable from the printer and plug the printer into the router via an ethernet cable. Might want to restart the printer.
2. Uninstall the shared printers from each computer.
3. You have to configure the TCP/IP setting on the printer. To do so Press the right arrow 3 times>Select Network Config > press right > select TCP/IP Config >press right > select manual. Here you will be promoted to enter a IP address. You need to assign the printer an IP address that compatible with your internal network (see above.)
Example: Linksys is 192.168.1.1, so we are going to make the IP for the printer: 192.168.1.155, the subnet in most cases should be 255.255.255.0, and the default gateway will be 192.168.1.1 or some other random port like 192.168.1.XXX. Now our printers network setting are ready to go.
4. Back at the computer, we should check if the computer can read the printer’s IP. Go to Start > Run > type CMD, once in DOS type ping 188.8.131.52
5. Add a new printer > select LOCAL PRINTER and uncheck the box – Automatically detect printer > select Create a new port > type of port: Standard TCP/IP Port > Now enter the IP we assigned to the printer > complete the wizard but make sure you choose DO NOT SHARE THIS PRINTER.
6. Repeat step 5 on all remaining computers.
