Ways to Resolve Issues while Installing Network Printers
Printers are computer peripheral devices that are essential for making hard copies of electronic files. Printers are used at home as well as offices and there are many different types of printers available. They include network printers. Network printers are those printers that are shared by more than one computer. Network printers are connected to other computers via a common network. This network may be wired or wireless. An in-built network interface within network printers allow them to communicate with the connected system as if it were the primary computer. Operating systems come with printer installation software so that you can easily set up network printers. However, there are some problems that may come up while setting up a network printer. These include installation freeze, error messages notifying you that the printer cannot be installed, network connection getting terminated automatically when printer is being set up, printer not at all connecting to the network to complete the set up and so on.
- Check printer drivers
- Scan and remove threats
- Verify network connection
Check printer drivers
Like all other computer devices, even network printers require drivers. If the drivers installed for your network printers are incorrect or outdated, then issues will come up whenever the printer is set up. If you have network printer setup issues, you are therefore advised to check the printer drivers and if they do not meet the aforesaid requirements, they will have to be replaced to solve this issue.
Scan and remove threats
Malware infections within your system can cause many problems during the use of network related tasks. Malware infect important system files and modify them so as to cause network problems. Users experiencing network printer setup issues are recommended to scan the system thoroughly using an updated antivirus program and then remove all the threats from the system.
Problems with the network used to connect the printer to your system can cause issues when setting up network printers. Users must therefore check the network connection and make sure that the connection is stable. Users must also check the security software and firewall installed on the system to ensure that they are not blocking the connection to the printer.
