Re: IP address

I use an app on my smartphone called FING and it will reveal all the devices on your network including your printer.

Greetings,

The iP4300 Is a USB only printer.

 

Standard Interfaces > USB 2.0 Hi-Speed and Direct Print Port (cable not included)

 

It does not support wired or wireless network connectivity.

@CrazyBoss,

I received your PM.

 

How can I print stuff from my phone, tablet, and/or chromebook? I have a ip4300 printer

 

Possible solutions:

If your router has a USB port and supports Print Server functionlity you can try connecting it to the router.  This could allow other devices connected to your network a way to print.  In all honesty however, this solution is more trouble than its worth.  Its extremely unreliable, and often requires constant management, power cycling devices, etc. 

 

Connect the printer to a networked computer and share it.  This solution requires that the computer the printer is connected to alway be turned on for printing to occur.  

 

Preferred solution:

Buy a new printer.  A network capable printer that supports wired, wireless, AirPrint / CloudPrint, etc.  The ip4300 is at least 12 yrs old.  It doesn't support these technologies natively.

Hi CrazyBossBytch.

 

Shadowsports has already given most of the relevant information about connecting the iP4300 across a network.  As stated, there's no guarantee such methods will work, or that they won't experience any problems or limitations.

 

If you're interested, then, at the time of this posting, Canon U.S.A. is offering our Black Friday sales.  In addition, since you've owned the iP4300 and it no longer supports your needs, I can offer the Canon Upgrade Program.  The Canon Upgrade Program is a discount on the purchase of a replacement printer directly through Canon, and comes with free ground shipping.  If you're interested, you may call us at (866) 443-8002, 9:00AM EST - 9:00PM EST, Monday through Saturday (excluding Holidays), and let the agent you speak with know you were offered the Canon Upgrade Program.  You may need some information from your printer to confirm eligibility.

 

Did this answer your question? Please click the Accept as Solution button on shadowsports' or my reply so that others may find the answer as well.
