2WIRE wireless router/DSL from AT&T

Here at home, we use the 2wire ethernet/wireless router/DSL to connect to the internet wirelessly with two computers(a laptop & a desktop ), the desktop using a Belkin Wireless G Desktop card. The desktop runs XP, the laptop, Vista. How can I configure it so we can share the printer wirelessly? The printer is in a seperate room hooked up to the laptop where the 2wire is located.

    Yeah, but how do I access the printer so I may print? It's not a wireless printer, so how do I set it up so I can print while its hooked up to the laptop from another room, via the wireless 2WIRE?

    I had a little trouble with setting it up even after I followed your every step, but I got it to work as I had hoped it would. Thanks!

I can fix it. You need a print server for your printer with usb or parallel cable port on one end and ethernet port on the other end. Connect the print server to router and printer, install necessary software driver it comes with and you would be all set. I have connected 1 usb and 1 parallel printer with router.

I hope it helps. My m/cs are identical to what you have as far as OS goes

Unless this is a wireless enabled or lan RJ45 connectable printer you cannot, the pc that the printer is connected to must be on at the time of the printing.

Wireless printers have their own arial and allocated ip address, Lan RJ45 connective printers can be connected to the router.

    your question was "How can I configure it so we can share the printer wirelessly?"



    this means a wireless printer, you mean share the printer on a network, on the laptop go to start>network, then in the folders on left click printers and then click on printer properties and select share this printer or right click on your network icon in task bar>network and sharing centre and click printer sharing in network and discovery.



    Then go to your XP pc and open the printers folder on programmes or in control panel, select add printer, then choose network printer>browse for a printer and then it should be discovered and the drivers installed.

I had ATT DSL w/ a linksys wireless router. I was


So, both computers are on the lan segment of 2wire? How many lan ports on 2 wire? Can you do ipconfig from the command line on both computers to see what the addresses are? In most cases, the first 3 octets xxx.yyy.zzz.### should be the same. If not, then 2wire is configured for vlan and the computers are actually on different lan segments & cannot communicate with each other.
Another thing you can do to troubleshoot is to ping each other's address.
You have to first establish there is communication between the 2 systems before troubleshooting further. Otherwise, you could be wasting a lot of time.

Wireless Internet through 2Wire router not working


First of all change your router to WPA rather than WEP. WEP is easily cracked now and is not secure. That might be what your laptop is looking at.

Secondly, update the wireless drivers to the current version from the website.

Make sure your router is broadcasting on 'auto' (802.11a/b/g, and N if supported), It ay be broadcasting only on, say 11g and your laptop doesn't support it. Updating the wireless drivers may also fix this.

Home wireless network through my 2wire wireless router/DSL modem.


From what I understand the flash drive is for saving the configuration so you can transfer it to other computers that you may want to put on the network.
