    Hi, I could use some advice.

    Iím having problems setting up a Toshiba e-Studio28 copier/printer on a small office network which so far consists of a Dell desktop with XP Home, and a 2Wire 4 port wireless router/cable modem from sbc Yahoo. Planned additions include one other user who will connect via Ethernet. Basically, I canít install the printer in XP Home.

    The Toshiba estudio28 has the GA1040 imbedded controller. I know this because of Toshibaís site: (http://www.eid.toshiba.com/support/drivers/estudio28.shtml). (Iím not sure if has a HDD, though)

    I set the Toshibaís network connections manually to a static IP of 192.168.0.10, and set the subnet mask to 255.255.255.0, and default gateway to sbcís specs. (I forget at the moment.)

    I am able to ping the printer/copier at that IP, and access the configuration program by entering that address as http://192.168.0.10 in a browser. I can go online. From the browser-based access program, I can print configuration pages, and adjust everything. I just cannot print from Windows XP Home, either from documents or the test utility. Iím guessing this is either a driver problem or a setting problem, and not a machine failure.

    After setting the copier, I restarted it, and then connected it to the network. I used the network setup wizard to create a small network sharing printer and file and then installed the driver from the CD (for the e35/45. why, I donít know) on the PC. When that didnít work, I uninstalled and reinstalled the new XP ones downloaded from the Toshiba website.

    Still no luck, so I looked online and found a forum with basically the same problem: http://www.thecopiernetwork.com/viewmessages.cfm?Forum=8&Topic=4080&keywords=toshi ba, and tried to follow most of their suggestions.

    Setting to LPR and creating a queue called ďqueueĒ allowed the printing to get somewhere, showing about 72kb transferred of the print job, before failing. The bytes count enabling didnít seem to do much. I didnít try changing the port to 10001, or 9100 or 9101. (I think 9100 is already enabled)

    I didnít try the firmware update, but I do believe it could use updatingÖ Iíd welcome any suggestions.
    Thanks

    I know on the Color units, if your using the LPR port you can name it one if 3 names "print" "hold" and there is one other I cant think of right now. They preform different function depending on priority of documents being printed,..name it "print" and it should work.

    Thanks Joe, for your quick reply.
    I don't think it's one of the color units. How can I tell? I will try naming it "print" and see if that helps.

    Also when I set up the network, I got a warning dialogue box from MS saying that the configuration I had selected was insecure. Any suggestions on making it secure for minimal cost?

    1. The reason for using the e35/45 cd is because it is a slower version of this family (28 pages per minute versus 35 or 45)

    2. The way I have the bewst luck setting these up is to install the driver as a local printer (lpt1) after the icon is installed on the printers/fax list right click goto properties and change to an tcpip port with the ip address as the queue name.

    As far as securing the wireless side of the router depending on the model router you can turn off broadcasting of your ssid, adding data encription and finally setting up the mac address only listing. Not something for the faint of heart.

    Thanks Alien,
    I appreciate the quick response of members on this board!

    I appreciate the tip about lpt1, I was confused about setting the port, as I didn't see a tcp/ip port by default.IP address as queue name? I will do that tomorrow morning.

    I figured the e35/45 cd would be basically fine for the e28. I downloaded both the new drivers for XP (PS and PCL). SHould I only install one? Which?

    As for setting the wireless, I'm comfortable configuring that. I just don't know about print and file sharing settings. I think the way I have it set currently is a bad idea. I do need to find the twowire model # and see how to configure it and encrypt it.

    Shouldn't I set up user accts to allow access to the networked printer?

    TIA

    I think the queue name Joe was trying to think of was "dssc". It's worth a try.. see what happens.

    The best way to set it up is to go to add a new printer and choose a local printer(untick automatically detect printer),Next choose Create a new port and drop down the list and choose standard TCP/IP Port, choose next. Now enter the ip adress in the top box and leave the other box as the ip address.Next, Now choose CUSTOM and settings then choose LPR and in the queue name type PCL6 and tick Lpr byte counting enabled. Now click next and finish. Now choose the correct driver as normal from the CD. All should work o.k now.

    I agree setup as local, LPR, TCP/IP, give printer correct print queue name...I deal with color controllers which are PRINT, HOLD and DIRECT.
