Printer Setup

There is no doubt that printers are the worst part of IT. They seem to have a will of their own and while the behavior of a computer can usually be explained away, the same is often not true of printers. They will drive you crazy.printer-hp-8600-pro

Fortunately for our customers, the technicians at Preactive IT Solutions are very experienced with printers. We have learned to work around their idiosyncrasies and make them behave in a more logical manner.

Here are a few recommendations based on our many years of experience:

  • Only use network printers.¬†Avoid printers only capable of USB connections.
  • Hard-code or assign a specific IP address to the printer
  • Avoid connecting printers via WiFi when possible. Using a network cable is more stable.
