Internet Printer Disconnecting Computers

I have 7 computers connected to my internet printer. I recently purchased another network printer that i was going to connect as an internet printer like the other. Both are hp p2035n printers. The very second i plug the ethernet cable into the second printer, all 7 of my computers lose their internet connection. Can somebody explain this to me, and what i can do to fix this. I need this second computer asap. Also, my first internet printer (the one that works) gets an internal ip when i check it's connection, but when i plug the second in (after the other computers lose their connection) the new printer shows an external ip.

Internet Keeps Disconnecting

Modem is motorola sbg900 isp is telstra if any of this helps. I recently forwarded my ports for my xbox 360 and ever since my desktop computer has been having fits. My internet disconnects every 10-14 minutes or so and reconnects after about 10 seconds. Really annoying. I enabled dmz and i made the dmz host my computer. Is this bad? I also have an option to pick the xbox as dmz host? Is it necessary to change it to something else?

Connect Two Computers On One Internet Connection

I have a laptop and a desktop i'm using cox internet and i have a ethernet router. It only has one ethernet slot, but i want to connect both the laptop and desktop to this internet connection. I have tried using other routers to the same connection but that's not working. Is there anyway i can do this for free? I have wireless internet on laptop but i don't want to use other peoples connection around me. Answer:- right now you have a modem, you need a router. A router takes one connection and turns it into many connections. A modem takes the cable coming into the house and allows you to use that connection.

Connect Three Computers To One Printer

How to use a switch to connect three computers and one printer to be used by all computers? No file sharing?

Answer:- this is easy if the printer already has a network port. Just put it on the local network with the pcs, configure each pc separately to work with the printer and the printer will take care of refereeing which jobs get printed in which order. If that's a usb printer, activating print sharing is the easiest/fastest means to share the printer. One computer (which must be left on) runs the printer and the other pcs send their print jobs to the key pc. Other options include getting a small print server device (connects the printer's usb cable to the network) but that can be somewhat difficult to get working smoothly.

One Printer To Two Computers - Db25 Parallel

I have a laser printer with parallel db25 hookup that needs to go to two computers with parallel db25. The computers cannot be upgraded with usb.

Basically neither the computers or the printer have or can be upgraded to usb. Is there a way to share this printer between these two computers using only db25 cables or db25 to usb cables?

Consensus On Disconnecting Usb Drives

Don't know if i'm rehashing old topics or not, but i would like to know what is the general consensus on the proper method of disconnecting usb drives?

I believe if it's not in the middle of a read/write operation then it's perfectly ok to jusy disconnect the cable. Some claim if you don't stop the device via the task bar then it causes drive issues, otherwise why would it be there?

I disagree, but i've been known to be wrong before.

Disconnecting Usb External Hdd With Switch

I used to have an external hdd with a separate electrical outlet to power it and even though it was a little bulky but this design was comfortable to me because i'm always very interested to disconnect the drive after any backup i need by using a "power switch outlet" with on/off keys where pressing the button connects power to the drive and windows xp sees it and vice versa without any need to physically removing/attaching any thing. P. S. I do this to prolong the drive's lifetime and to keep it away from any possible problems occurring to my pc. Etc. Now this drive is dead for some reason so i went to buy another one but i was stuck with a usb powered drive (wd my passport essential) and it's ok but the only thing that teases me is that i can't control the power since it's usb controlled so the drive starts spinning when i turn on my computer's power switch so the only way for me to control this is disconnecting/connecting the usb cable with the port whenever i don't need/need the drive which is not convenient at all. Is there any solution (like a cable) which allows me to control the drive's status (on/off) with a simple key switch without the need to physically remove/attach the usb cable from the back of my machine so that whenever i need/don't need the drive, i simply switch on/off a key on this cable?
