Re: Need URGENT HELP PLEASE!!
does your network issue ip addresses dynamically (DHCP)? or do you assign each computer a static ip? The Jet Direct box is basically a computer that you can configure with a static IP address (if your network uses DHCP, you'll need to reserve this address so it won't be assigned later to another pc or printer). Once that is done, connect all the other pc's to that switch along with the printer. Go to each pc and use the add a printer wizard>>select "local printer ...">>create a new port>>drop-down menu to Standard TCP/IP>>next>>another wizard pops up>>next>>input static ip address of printer in first line (the second line auto-fills)>>follow the rest of the steps. Might ask you for a driver cd ... put it in the pc you're working with and direct the wizard to it. Hope this helps some.
