It may be possible that you had not added the printer correctly to the network PC. Also let me know if they are working Fine in Past. Clarify me with the "Cassette".

Desktop computer windows xp...sons laptop windows 7 ..wireless router....same internete signal...can his laptop find my printer..or do i need to run same cd on my sons laptop..to get it to install on...


Hi,

Yes it is possible, you have to install the pritner software on your Sons laptop.

1) For sharing, if you have a network printer connected to your router, then select the network option while installing the printer (If you would have given us the printer model and make we could have given step by step instructions).

2) If the printer is connected to your XP computer and you want to share it, share the printer from XP as mentioned in the steps below.

>> Open Printers and Faxes. Click Start, click Control Panel, click Printers and Other Hardware, and then click Printers and Faxes.
>> Right-click the printer you want to share, and then click Sharing.
>> On the Sharing tab, click Share this printer and then type a share name for the shared printer (e.g. MyPrinter), click on Apply and Ok. (as shown below)

Now goto the Windows 7 laptop and follow the steps as mentioned below,

>> Click Start >> Click on Devices and Printers >> Click on Add Printer (as shown below)

shreysri_9.jpg
>> A new window will come up, click on Add a network printer (as shown below)

shreysri_11.jpg
>> The laptop will search the network for the printer and display it on the list, click on the printer and click on next. The laptop will install the software required, do ensure the printer installation disc is in the laptop in case if Windows 7 wont have the driver it will take it from the disc.

Regards,
Shrey

Yes you need to setup the printer as a shared printer using the printer driver CD.
Your shared printer and computer would need to be on your LAN and connected to a wireless router. The laptop will connect to the shares printer via the wireless router and LAN cable to the computer with the shared printer.
Please click on this link and follow my instructions to setup the shared printer.

Can i set up my photosmart c5280 printer to print wirelessly from multiple computers via my router


Yes, you can. The easiest (and most secure) way to do this is to share it through a computer that is always on as the printer's host. Actually, looking at the specifications of the C5280, it is your only option. On the host computer (the one directly connected to the printer), click
(On Vista) Start > Control Panel > Printers
Right-click on the printer you wish to share, then left click on Sharing ... and click the checkmark box for "Share This Printer As" and give the printer a name. If this option is grayed out, click the shielded button Sharing Options and enable printer sharing.
On each of the computers you want to have printer access, open the printers window (see above) and double click the "Add Computer" icon. From the dialogue box, click "Add network, wireless or Bluetooth Printer." Your shared printer should appear on the list. Follow the prompts to install the printer, and you are ready to go!
Notes: The process is almost identical for WinXP and Windows 7 with small variations. Printer drivers will probably not be necessary, the remote computers may ask for one. Install the driver on each system as requested. Opening printer sharing can cause security vulnerabilities on improperly setup routers -- make sure that your wireless router is properly secured with WPA2 encryption and a security key (built-in features on most routers, but usually turned off by default).

How do i connect the mx700 to a second computer through router


Hi there
Install "File and Print Sharing" on the computer with the printer.
This will allow the printer to be shared across the network.
However, the computer with the printer will have to be on in order for wireless clients to print through the router. It's not the most flexible solution, but it will work with existing equipment.
1. Click on "Start -> Control Panel -> Printers and Faxes."
2. Select the printer to be shared and right-click on it.
3. Select "Sharing."
4. Put a check mark in the "Share This Printer" option and give it a descriptive share name.
5. Click "OK."
6. Click on "Start -> Control Panel -> Printers and Faxes" on the computer that needs print access through the wireless router.
7. Select "Add a Printer," then hit the "Next" button.
8. Choose "A Network Printer" and hit the "Next" button again.
9. Click "Browse for a Printer," then "Next."
10. Find the printer you want to print to, then click "Next."
11. Follow the instructions on the screen to finish setting up the printer.

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

I am wanting to hook up 2 Computers to one Printer


Using a Cross over LAN cable, connect the two machines and use the assistant for home networks in windows to set them up. Then install the printer and share it on the network. On the other computer, go to add new printers, select network printers and install it.
After that you'll be able to print from both pc's.
If you have only one network adapter on each computer and are using it to connect to the internet, you'll need to get an ethernet switch to connect all the LAN cables.

Trying to connect printer to computer wireless


  1. Step 1 Check if your printer is network ready. Many newer models are designed to work on networks. Examine the documentation to see if your printer supports Wi-Fi (802.11x) or Bluetooth.
  2. Step 2 Add network support to your printer. If your printer is not already wireless you can connect it to a wireless routermag-glass_10x10.gif using the RJ-45 Jack (it resembles a large telephone jack). You can also buy an expansion card that will add a jack or buy an external print server that will connect to the USB or parallel port.
  3. Step 3 Connect your printer to the network. If your printer is not wired, you’ll have to connect it directly to your wireless router. Connect a networking cable from the RJ-45 Jack on the printer (or adapter) to the router. Plug it into any jack except the UPLINK. The printer should automatically connect to the network when turned on.
  4. Step 4 Install printer drivers on all computers. Using the disc that came with the printer or drivers downloaded from the manufacturer, install the printer’s drivers onto each computer on the network.
  5. Step 5 Print. You should be able to access the printer just like any other wireless device. Select the printer from the Print menu when you print.
  6. Share Your Printer in Windows
  7. Step 1 Install the printer. Set up the printer as normal on a machine that is already connected to the wireless network. Connect all necessary cables and install all necessary drivers.
  8. Step 2 Open the printers and faxes folder. Click "Start," then "Control Panel," then "Printers and Other Hardware" and then "Printers and Faxes."
  9. Step 3 Share your printer. Find the icon for the printer you just installed. Click the icon once and then select SHARE THIS PRINTER in the tasks pane on the left. Now, right click the icon, select properties and go to the SHARING tab. Click "Share Name," and then click "Okay."
  10. Step 4 Connect to the printer. On the other computers within the network, open the control panel and click "Printers and Other Hardware." Select "Add a Printer."
  11. Step 5 Select "Printer Connection." When prompted, select this option instead of the local printer. Find and select the printer you just installed and select it.
  12. Step 6 Print as normal. Next time you print a page, send it to your networked printer.

Hope this Help.

Cheers!!!!

hi there,

Because printers and networks vary, the best instructions for setting up and networking your printer should be in its users manual. Also, your network-ready printer may have come with installation software that can help you share the printer over the network.

There are three main steps you need to take when networking a printer, including the following: Enable the File And Printer Sharing setting, Make the printer available to all users, and Direct PCs to the printer.

For detailed instructions on sharing printers at home, please refer to the "Get Your House In Order" article in the "See Also:" section below.

For detailed instructions on sharing printers in a small business, please refer to the "Select & Share The Right Printer For Your Small Business"

Set up 2 wireless routers, 1st for printer, 2nd for internet


You should only need one wireless router for everything. The purpose of the router is to "route" multiple devices together. Your set-up should be something like this:

Modem connected to wireless router via Ethernet cable.
Wireless router broadcasting wireless internet connection.
Computer(s) connected to wireless router via cable or wireless adapter.
Computer with network printer sharing enabled.
Turn on wireless printer.
You should be able to detect the printer via Windows.
