Question about HP PSC 2410 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

How do I network my psc2410 printer with Win Xp PC and eMac OS X computer

Hi all.
My usual computer is a PC operating with WinXP SP3. To this PC I have connected via USB a HP psc 2410 photosmart all-in-one printer which works without fault.
2 days ago I was given an eMac loaded with Leopard OS X operating system. I have configured this eMac to work with the 2410 via USB.
The problem is that I have to  disconnect one or the other if I want to print.
My question is, how do I go about networking all three components so that I can print from either machine without having to disconnect the other?
I must add here, I am only just learniig how to use an eMac.
Both computers are connected to the internet via an D-Link ADSL Modem Router and ethernet cabling.
Your advice would be most appreciated in this matter.
Regards

The easiest way is to install a print server on the printer.
I personally use the Netgear units (PS121 for USB, PS101 for CAT5).
These attach right to the printer, and then you run a connection to your hub or router.
There are also routers that have printer ports built in.
3rd choice, they also make wireless print servers.
You can find these at a number of places, including on line.
The first 2 print servers I mentioned and under $60.

The network printer will print a test page but nothing else


whenever a printer is connected to a network it loads a driver for all the lower versions of operating systems so that if any computer from the network having a lower version gives a print command it can be spooled using that driver. On the other hand you have connected the printer to an OS of low version and printing through a higher version. Its just like connecting a printer to DOS comp and trying to print through Win 98. So now you know what you have to do. Just find your driver compatible for Win7 and connect it to win7 and you can give print through xp.

I need a 64 bit Canon D780 printer driver...where can I download? I went to canon, but their drive is only a 32 bit


Okay so this may not help you now, but I just got a hand me down D780. After much frustration and research here's the solution that I was able to work with. It isn't perfect; but it's something....

So here are the steps for network shared installation; assuming your D780 is installed on an old xp desktop and you're using a Win-7 laptop. If you're using the printer directly on your Win-7 machine, just use the local printer installation after the XP mode has been installed.

1) You'll have to install WinXP mode on Win-7 using the steps listed on this link. If you have a genuine Win-7 copy installed, this download and installation is free, courtesy Microsoft.

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/products/features/windows-xp-mode

2) After installation, you'll have to change network settings for your virtual pc. This step is necessary if you want to be on the same home network and want to see the printer! Never mind if you don't understand this logic. Just follow the steps and you'll do just fine. To change the network settings in vPC: click Tools; click Settings; select Network from left; then for Adapter 1 choose the actual network adapter connected to your router (simply put: select the wireless adapter or wired adapter you're using to connect to your actual router or home network. You can find that from Change Adapter Settings in Network and Sharing.) Click Ok.

3) Now add the printer as local or networked following your usual XP steps. You should be able to see the printer. If not, open a command prompt window, check your ip to make sure you're on same network. If not, or if you don't know how to do that, just type in ipconfig /release enter and then ipconfig /renew enter. Try to connect to the shared printer by pinging the ip of the host computer. If the ping works, you should be able to see the printer then.

Connect printer and use in XP mode. Not the best solution, I know. But it's free and at least lets you print from your laptop, given the circumstances.

Five computers networked with Linksys WRT320N router. Operating systems: Win 7.0 on 3 computers (two hardwired)(one laptop - wireless), Snow Leopard 10.8 on 1 (wireless), and XP on one (wireless). Also...


Sometimes this problem occures when you install a later model wireless router.
Try installing the latest Wireless card driver on the XP computer and the LAN card drivers on the other computers except the MAC.

Network x86 driver support on Vista 64 bit OS (Samsung Ml-2510)


That's right. You'll have to install the XP driver on an XP PC, and share it to the other XP machines that way, or Install the driver on each PC individually -you can't share a Vista driver with XP PC's.
