I'm trying to install a WorkCentre 6027 and have run into two problems with connecting it to a wireless network.
First, I can't find the printer's IP address anywhere (which apparently I need to get into the software that controls the printer). When I print the Configuration page, it shows up as 0.0.0.0. Somewhere in the manual, it says to wait two minutes and try again, but that doesn't seem to work.
Second, the printer won't connect to my wireless network. It does see the network, but after I enter the network password, the printer refuses to connect. No other devices on the network have this problem.
Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
Possibly you could set the IP address manually.
Assigning the IP Address Automatically
NOTE: If authentication is enabled, users may be required to enter a passcode to access printer features. If prompted, enter the passcode using the keypad and select OK.
And the not connecting just sounds like the wrong encryption type is chosen so it is failing, which would of course mean it gets no IP address.
Maybe I'm missing something but why would it set a 169.254.x.x IP address if I'm using DHCP? And how can other computers on the network connect to this if the IP address isn't on the local network? I'm having the same issue and if I let the printer set the IP address it is not on the local network and users cannot connect to it. If I manually set the IP address the configuration fails with an Incorrect IP address error. The installation wizard picked the correct encryption for the wireless network and connected, so that isn't the issue.
