It's because your printer is set for sharing on a windows based network. Mac has a different network for sharing printers not compatible with windows.

The only way to get it to work on the network is to get a print server either wired or wireless and connect the printer that way to your network. Then everyone can use it.

Hp pavilion a1710n doesn't send to printer. Goes through every step,doesnt send. My laptop workds with the printer.


A few things come to mind. Are you sure the printer isn't a D4160??? The C4160 was sold in England. Anyways...

First, when you hit print a box opens up. On the top of that box make sure your printer is the one selected. It will have a green checkmark by it.

Second. Make sure the USB cable is connected between computer and printer. The Hp pavilion a1710n doesn't have a wireless network chip so it will need the USB cable connected for it to print.

I assume your laptop prints wirelessly and that is why it works and the HP does not.

Good Luck

Setting up printer on home network


Because your printer is not either wireless or network capable, the only way to get the results you need is to purchase a usb print server, hook it to your router, set it up through it's management console, and if your router is wireless, you can hook up to your router and print to your printer with your desktop turned on or off.

HP Color Laserjet won't print from desktop - or wirelesslly from laptop - but WILL print directly from laptop.  : ( Need knowledgable networking and driver and  port personn to walk me through this.


I am going to assume that the printer is plugged directly into the desktop and if so then you need to go to printer and setting and setup you color laserjet as a shared printer. Now see if you can see the printer on your network, thru the wireless connection on the laptop.
once done that will probbably work, but you are probbably going to need your desktop on to print

When i try to print wirelessly from my laptop it says its not communicating with printer. I have downloaded a d link wireless router to computer and i don't know why it isn't working?


Hi nataliejm3,

Assuming that you already added the printerto your desktop, you will need to add the MAC address of the printer to your router.

Hope this helps and good luck.

Cannot get printer hp psc2355 to work with br6215srg router can you please advise


This router has a built in print server. What type of cable setup are you using; USB, LAN, Firewire ?? All of these methods should work.

For me, I have usb printer and wireless router connected to my desktop in the office, and I use a wireless LAN laptop around the house and I can print from my wireless laptop.

Tell me what setup you want to use so we can narrow this down.
I'm assuming this is a NEW setup your trying to get started.

How can I set up wireless printer


To share the printer, I open the Printers and Faxes folder on the computer that was connected to my printer.

To open the Printers and Faxes folder

• Click Start and then click Control Panel.
• Click Printers and Other Hardware, and then click Printers and Faxes.
• In the Printers and Faxes folder. Click the printer's icon and, in the tasks pane, click Share This Printer.
• Open the printer's Properties dialog box, and click on the Sharing tab.
• Click Share Name, and then clicked OK.

That's it
Now you have a network printer, you are ready to connect to it and print from other computers on the network.

To connect to the printer

•O pen Control Panel, and click Printers and Other Hardware.
•C lick Add a Printer.
• Instead of adding a local printer, though, click Printer Connection and then browse the network for the printer.
