Office Jet 8620: Wired Ethernet connection - first installation

I'm trying to connect my printer HP 8620 nine for the first time (using the Ethernet cable) to my Apple AirPort Extreme router. The Configuration Page of HP network says that the network status is offline. The printer display says "connected".  (SetUp-> set up a network-> settings-> view Ethernet Details-> IP address Ethernet: not connected).  HOWEVER, if I move the Ethernet cable from the printer to a computer, I get a good wired Internet connection. I tried the power on the router and the printer (unplug the 120vac) but without joy of recycling. Before you buy this printer, I got an Epson 3640 works well on an Ethernet cable to the same router. Please inform promptly.

It turns out that this new printer was defective and returned.

The replacement printer has been installed and, so far, does not work well.

Looking backward, a trick that the Ethernet port on the printer did not work was the observation that the link light nor of the router or the modem (a small LED next to the Ethernet plug) unlit green changed when the Ethernet cable from the printer was plugged (instead the link light remained extinguished).

  • Download speed very slow on the wired Ethernet connection

    I am currently getting 200 Mbps down and 0.3 MB/s on my desk wired Ethernet connection. I should get 200 down and 20 upwards.

    • On my wireless adapter on the same router, I have ~ 18 Mbit/s to the top and about 15 Mbit/s down, which seems that the wireless adapter works fine.
    • I plugged in another computer with the same cable on the same router port and got the full speed (200/20), then the problem lies within my computer.
    • I made a transfer of files to and from my computer to another computer connected to the same router and I got the full speed Gigabit times come and go.

    I searched high and wide on the internet and forums, and that many people have had the same problem I have, nothing of the multitude of solutions worked for me.

    That's what I tried without success:

    • Uninstalled the Ethernet card, deleted the drivers, forcing the new drivers to install again. No change of speed.
    • Carefully checked for Virus and malware programs (crossed the registry as well), but found nothing, and nothing has been installed recently other than windows updates.
    • The only antivirus I have is Windows Defender. I turned off and turned off the Windows Firewall, but speed did not improve.
    • I tried with IE, Chrome and Firefox, speed with different services and all tests show similar speeds. I also used FTP to a server I have, and the speeds were the same.
    • There is no other traffic devours bandwidth.

    So what I have gathered so far, it's that my Ethernet card works very slow only when downloading from the internet. Within my network, it works fine.

    What is a service that does not work well? If so who? I am not knowledgeable on the use of all services. I checked IPv4 and IPv6 and they both seem to be configured correctly, but I can't say that I am certain of what "correctly configured" is.

    These are my specs:

    HP Desktop H9 - 1215t

    Windows 7 Ultimate SP1

    32 GB OF RAM

    64 bit

    Chip Intel i7-3770

    Controller Atheros AR8161/8165 PCI - E Gigabit Ethernet (NDIS 6.20)

    I would really appreciate some help here because this problem I'm paralyzed.

    Thank you for your time,


    By George, you got it!

    For someone who thinks he's good at Googling, I could sure use some improvements!

    The key has been the link to explanation. While I had been close to my tests, this for shows that even when you sort-of-one little-peut-be-think you know what you're doing to keep your legs unless you know EXACTLY what you are doing.

    The answer was definitely Large Send Offload, but it was a little more complicated, at least to understand what really happened. Neutralization of him gave the tour, but now I work with an active v2 and it works like a charm.

    I will detail what, in my opinion, happened here for those who may have similar problems so that they (you) may be able to figure out, as all cards are different and may require slightly different settings.

    I live in an area where so far the download speed over fast, I was able to get is 2 Mbps, on a good day, it's usually on average 1 ~ 1.5 Mbps. download speed is between 5 ~ 20 Mbit/s.

    I do a lot of video work and I constantly have to download large files on my servers. I got the computer described above about 8 months ago, and my Age (2 years) one remained on my home network.

    For a week or two, I was cursing my ISP because the internet was slower than usual and very glitch. I tested my speed and got 20 down and 0.2, repeatedly. So I went through the long and technology-challenged call representative to 'help' me, I was paying for 20/2. Only option was to wait a week for a technician to come out of my house, he stressed have shot my injurybut not before you ask me, that there are faster speeds to internet available in my place. 200/20 which is 10 times what I had, so of course I went with her. In doing so the representative asked me to Exchange my modem/router for a new handle faster speeds.

    When I replaced the modem/router, I found that the download speed went from 50/0.2 (after the new request speed but still with the old router) to 200/0.3~0.5 with the new router. I also had a Cisco E2000 router that I turned into a switch, which was also bogged down internet high speed (now that they have been much faster). But still the download speed has not really improved.

    This long and winding history is so that you (read this with a similar problem) might find the answer to your particular problem.

    Looking back when I said that the issue was in my computer because that became high speed was not quite accurate. The 'problem' was beyond my router, if the solution was in my settings with the LSO parameter. The 'problem' was not really a problem since what I see (guess) that's happened is that my ISP has been updated with equipment, and the settings on my new pc has become a problem while paradoxically not so in my old pc.

    My old pc equipped with a "Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller" and the IPv4 LSO parameter turned on, that she was no problem under the new set of circumstances ISP. 200 / 20 Mbit/s.

    Then when I compared the setting on my new computer, it never crossed my mind that the neutralization of him would solve the problem.

    My new pc has a Atheros AR8161/8165 controller PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet (NDIS 6.20). This adapter has a setting "IPv4 LSO" more setting "IPv4 LSO v2" and "IPv6 LSO v2" décor. I don't think that my ISP uses IPv6.

    In my quest to solve the problem, I placed all of the above settings to "Enabled", without success and in my fog don't reverse these settings.

    With the 3 off, it worked fine, but I got a 5 ~ 10% improvement on the download speed with the LSO IPv4 v2 enabled and the other disabled.

    There is no way representing the service provider on the phone could know this, so calling them would not / has not solved the problem. Even waiting a week for the technician most likely would not have solved the problem as it would be measured using a laptop full download and the download speeds.

    I'm sure this will become a problem most current internet speeds that House are starting to soar (thanks Google!), so I hope this helps those who have similar problems.

    To summarize:

    Click on start->Control Panel->Device Manager->network adapters-> your adapter name (mine is Atheros AR8152/8158 PCI - E Fast Ethernet Controller (NDIS 6.20), right click and select Properties. On the advance tab, find good Large Send Offload (IPv4) and change its value to disabled , and then click on OK.

    If you have a Large Send Offload (IPv4) v2 try to set that to enable (with either a handicapped of course).

    I hope this helps!

    And thank you George.


  • Office Jet 8620: Networked 8620 Pro always 'offline' in Windows 10

    My Office Jet Pro 8620 is still retained as 'offline' Windows 10, even if my printer Hp Assistant still connect to it fine.  The printer is on a network via ethernet cable and is always available via the internet printing as well.

    I finally gave up using the HP driver for device Pro 8620 and 8620 name and started using HP ePrint as my printer driver default, which seems to have solved the problem for now.

    I checked the version of my driver 8620 and HP reports it as current.  Is there a newer driver coming that will address this problem or, Alternatively, is there a generic Windows driver that I can use which will correctly yield the printer to be online?

    Thank you.


    Thank you for using the forum.

    You can try creating a TCP/IP port?

    Creating a TCP IP port

    1. Print a Configuration Page to get the printer IPv4 address (you can also tap on the icon wireless on the front panel of your printer to obtain the IP address)
    2. On your PC, go to control panel configuration, devices and printers, right-click the printer and on the left, click printer properties, select the Ports tab.
    3. Click Add Port, select the Port TCP/IP Standard, then New Port and follow the instructions in the wizard.
    4. Type the IP address for the printer.

    Note that you can ALWAYS go back to the original port the HP software installed by selecting the HP port on the Ports tab (in the properties of the printer)

    Thank you.

  • Office Jet 8620: office jet 8620

    I have a desktop connected via USB Jet 8620. The PC has recently upgraded from 8.1 to win to win 10.

    The starting time is now very long, about 4 to 5 minutes.

    Remove the printer USB or shut off the power to the printer solves the problem.

    Does anyone have Ant ideas?

    Thank you.

    I found the cause for the slow start, it was the USB that I used for the printer.

    I plugged in a free USB port of the HP printer and the problem was solved.

    Hey @Pm2r,

    Welcome to the Forums of HP Support!

    I understand that you are experiencing some problems with printer e-all-in-one Officejet 8620 communicates is not with your PC. I can help you with that.

    To start, make sure that the printer is plugged directly into a wall outlet, not a surge protector. Once done:

    1. Turn the printer off.
    2. While the printer is turned off, disconnect the power cable from the back of the router for a minute.
    3. When the lights come back on the router, turn on the printer.

    Now, on the printer, click on the wireless icon that looks like a radio tower.

    • If you see a line indicating the status: not connected, the printer is not connected to your wireless network. Click speed, wireless and Wireless Setup Wizard to connect the printer to your network.
    • If the IP address starts with 169, the printer is not getting a valid IP address of the router. Contact which provided you your router to determine why the router is not getting an IP address valid.
    • If the IP address of the printer starts with 172, the printer is connected to a network of comments. Contact those that you provided with the router for assistance with deactivation of the feedback network.
    • If the IP address of the printer starts with 192.168 or 10, the printer is properly connected to a network. Please see below.
    • If the IP address of the printer begins with any other number, the network is maintained. Contact one that keeps your support network.

    At this point, you should be able to print wireless. If you still can not, on any device that prints the PC enter the IP address of the printer in an address bar. If you are able to access embedded web page the printer, please let me know.

    Please let me know the results after following the above. If you are able to print, click on accept solution. If you appreciate my help, please click on the thumbs up icon. The two icons are below this post.

  • HP Office Jet 3830: Printer not connected

    I just installed this new printer, followed all the instructions in the manual and website, downloaded the latest update.

    Checked everything with the Setup Wizard, and he says that everything is ok.

    YET, when I try to print anything, it indicates that the "the printer is not connected"...

    I restarted my computer and also to restart the printer. Nothing has changed...

    I need to help and suggestions to solve this problem.

    Thank you


    Hey @lbriskin,

    Welcome to the Forums of HP Support! I hope you enjoy your stay here.

    I understand that your Macintosh OSX 10.11 computer detects a printer all-in-one Officejet 3830. I can help you with that.

    First of all, let's see if the problem can be related network or Mac related. To do:

    Turn the printer off for a minute.

    While the printer is off, remove the power cord at the back of the router for a minute.

    When the lights came on your router on the printer.

    Now, let's see what the printer think, that is the question. Click on the wireless icon that looks like a radio tower in the Middle at the bottom of the screen.

    The next step depends on the IP address on the printer display.

    • If the IP address starts with 169.254, then the printer does not receive a valid IP address. Click the gear icon and select Wireless Setup Assistant to connect again. If the IP continues first 169.254 then the next step is to contact your internet provider because you have a device that will not receive a valid IP address of the router. If this is the case, then I would suggest calling a device and not a printer. If you say printer they say talk to HP and want to terminate the call.
    • If the IP address starts with 172 the printer is connected to a network of comments. Contact the company that you provided with the router for assistance with deactivation of the feedback network.
    • If the IP address begins with 192.168 or 10 then the printer IP address is fine. The next step would be to determine the issue on the Mac.
    • If the IP address begins with any other number then the network has somewhat changed. I would contact who is now the network for assistance.

    Assuming that the IP starts with 192.168 or 10 the next step would be to reset your printing system. To do:

    On the Mac, click the Apple icon, system preferences and printers and Scanners.

    Hold down the command key and click the picture of the printer on the left side of the screen.

    Click on reset printing system.

    Click on the button "+" in the lower left corner of the screen.

    Select your printer from the list.

    Click on the box to use and select your printer from the list.

    Click on Add.

    If your printer was not in the previous window, it means that there is a setting on the network that prevents the Mac and a printer to communicate. I communicate with the one that is provided with the router and ask them to open all Ports, enable multicast, MAC disable the filtering/MAC cloning and make sure that the router broadcasts a band of 2.4 GHz (gigahertz).

    At this point, you should be able to print. If you are not able to print then please let me know what happened by following these instructions.

    Please let me know if this solves your problem or if you have any other questions. If not, have a great weekend!

    If this solves your problem then please help others to find this post by clicking on accept as Solution on my post.

    If you appreciate my help so please let others know by clicking on the icon below my post thumbs up.
