    I installeded the disc on both computers. I removed the installation from the desktop and reinstalled it. The disc installation is recognized on both computers. The printer is only recognized on the laptop. The connection required is USB. The desktop has several USB connections but none of them work. Help! John S.

The drivers need to be installed on both computers to work properly, if you have the install disc, install it to your gateway as well.

    Sorry about that, missed the part about usb not working, On the gateway, if you enter the BIOS upon turning the computer on, check under perifials if im not mistaken and look to see if the usb ports are turned off on that system.

My new Lenovo thinkpad sees my D-Link Dr615 with a good signal strength but fails to connect. Both my other laptop and desktop connect just fine. What can I do?


My housemate and I have the same problem with our ThinkPads.
Apparently there's some compatibility issues with the wireless cards in some ThinkPads and some wireless routers.
Try a Belkin router - if you're in the UK, go to Maplin and buy one. If it doesn't work, you can return the router to Maplin and get your money back.

good luck

Cannot get my gateway ZX4800-3 desktop to send data to Printer


I wanted to provide some clarification to you. Once your devices (printer in this case) and computers are connected to your router, they have the connection. Now the communication settings between each computer and devices are to be configured on each computer individually. Obviously the first step would be to install the drivers that came with your printer on the new Gateway just like you did on your other computers. *This is undoubtedly where the problem lies.* You have a printer that was produced prior to Windows 7 being released. Check the website of the manufacturer of your printer to see if they have released a new driver for Windows 7. Download it to your new computer and install. That should take care of you.

I want to connect a Dell 926 printer to a Gateway desktop.


You can download the XP drivers from Dell. Just go to the Dell website, click on the support link, lookup your specific printer, and input the o/s as XP. The software/driver package should appear. Download and install. You should be all set. Hope this helps.

Adding wireless printer to thinkpad T43


If you have a wireless router, the printer will talk to the router and not to the thinkpad. You would have to establish a connection between the printer and the router. Then share the printer to print.
If you dont have a wireles router and you are trying to connect your thinkpad to the printer directly, the wireless card in the thinkpad should be in the adhoc mode. ( See Wireless card properties )
Hope this helps

Laptop wireless connection


Hi .

LImited access no internet service means that Authentication of your wireless network is not up.

You must know what your wireless encryption is and you can check your manual/guide for your router or gateway on how to access it.If you dont have it anymore than you can access your router by using your desktop computer w/c im sure is hardwired to your router.

By using your desktop we need to look for you default gateway by ff the steps below.

For win xp:

Start > run > cmd .... on the Dos window type in ipconfig /all

it'l then show your default gateway . It would look like this .192.168.xxxx

If you have your default gateway , w/c is your routers physical address Open your favorite browser and on the address bar type in your default gateway.It would route you to your routers page. Most routers ask for your username and password.When youre able to access your router you'l have a chance now to view or change your wireless settings.

Hope that helps. Pls let us know if you have further questions or clarifications.

Good Luck .

Cheers.
