Connecting to printer on wireless network with built in wireless adapter

This sounds complicated, so let me explain. I have DSL with a wireless feature activated. The printer is connected to the main computer which is also connected to the DSL router. My laptop connects to the DSL with a built in wireless adapter. It will not, however, recognize the printer.

Using another laptop, with a wireless G adapter (Lynksys), it connects to both the DSL and printer.

Can anyone tell me how to connect the newer laptop to the network and printer?

You have to share the printer to the network
To do that go to Start >> Control Panel >> Printer

Select your printer and right click go to Sharing
Mark "share this printer" an hit ok

A small hand will appears below your icon printer

My printer will not connect to my computer's wireless network.


Hi,

The first step is to set up a wireless network is that you need the equipments for connection. First of all you need a Broadband Internet connection, Wireless router, and a wireless network adapter. The router converts the signals coming from your Internet connection into a wireless broadcast. You need to purchase an adapter for a desktop computer and you must make sure that you have one adapter for every computer. If you have a desktop computer make sure that you have an USB port to plug the wireless network adapter to your computer.

How to hook up a wireless printer to a computer


Does the printer also have some "wired" interface (parallel-port, or USB-port)?

If not, then you need to purchase a router with wireless capability:

1. Connect cable-modem (or DSL-modem) to the 'WAN' (or 'IInternet') port on the router.

2. Connect one of the 'LAN' ports on the router to the network-port on your computer.

3. Configure the wireless-adapter inside the router:
* set an SSID -- the "name" of your wireless network
* encryption-level -- use 'WPA' or 'WPA2'
* a password for your network

4. Configure the wireless printer to connect to that SSID, using the password

5. On the computer, click "Add Networked Printer"

6. Print a "test" page: computer -> wired -> router -> wireless -> printer

How do I connect my HP 8250 Wirelessly? I have a router and a Linksys wireless-B adapter.


Make sure your router is set to accept Wireless-B connections...most aren't. Log into your router and setup wireless, using an SSID and security. Then connect with your laptop and you're good to go.

I have a lexmark x4690 wireless printer. I had to change my bell sympatico dsl router. Now I need to change the network on my printer but I can't. I no longer have the driver cd and I tryed downloading...


You will need to reset the printer's wireless network adapter then reconfigure it with your new wireless network settings. On the printer's operator panel, press Setup button > Network Setup > Reset Network Adapter > hit Ok. The Wifi light will momentarily turn off then will turn on orange. Once you have that, run the Lexmark wireless setup utility on your computer to configure the printer with your new wireless network settings. Thanks.

My Lexmark X4650's wifi light is off. I have tried to reset the wireless settings but when I try it says "network connection in progress" and goes back to the set up menu. How do i resolve this? Thanks.


Great job on trying to reset the printer's wireless network adapter. Somehow, the printer's memory is stuck to thinking to connect to a wireless network when it's not communicating at all. Unplug the power adapter from the printer. The power adapter is the rectangular black box behind the printer where the power cord is attached. Wait at least 30 seconds before plugging back the power adapter in the printer. That should refresh itself. If wifi light won't turn on orange after the printer's on ready, reset the wireless network adapter again. Thanks.

Blinking orange light where tghe wifi is


The light indicates that the printer's trying to connect to a wireless network. If the blinking wifi light has been going on for quite some time now but connection is still not going through, you will need to reset the printer's wireless network adapter. To reset the network adapter on Lexmark X6570, press Settings button > Network Setup > Wireless Setup > Reset Network Adapter to Factory Defaults. The wifi light will momentarily turn off then on and should be solid orange then. Try to reconnect the printer for wireless connection.

best thing to do is try and make a physical connection (network/usb cable) to the printer and configure the wireless adapter of the printer like this. you absolutely need to provide the printer with the wifi security password to make it work on the secured wifi network.

Laptops not connecting to the internet when the hp c4599 is on


Perhaps the printer is conflicting with the laptop by taking its "address" on the network...Do you know how to give your printer a diifferent IP address? Or your laptop? Its a bit complicated to explain but if you can make sure the laptops and the printer are all set to use "DHCP" then they should all each get an adress on your home network and work together.

In Windows Vista, click Start, Control Panel, Network & Internet, View Network Status and Tasks. Then view the status of your Wireless Network Connection and click details, if it says "DHCP Enabled" in there then your laptops are not the problem and should be sharing addresses.

You should be able to see in the printers control panel or by printing a self test page how its setup on the network, maybe it needs to be reconfigured while the laptops are turned on as well.

Connect a wireless laptop to an existing wired network printer


Hi!

Its designed for wireless, but you need an adapter to make it wireless, the adapter

I dont know if that adapter came whit your printer when you bought it, but thats what you need to make it wireless

Good luck

Can I wirelessly network my HP Officejet J5780 printer?


What you are saying will not work . The J5780 only connects with a USB. It does not have a J45 connection. So to play with the "built in network server" would do nothing. You would have to have some way to convert the USB to a J45 so he could hook it to his Wireless Router. His only alternative is to hook it to another computer that is used as a Wireless Slave that is shared or to get a print server. Hower, Belkin does make a wireless USB Hub that converts 5 USB's to J45 and can be hooked to you Wireless Router. It also has a built in Print Server. You can take this device and instead of hooking it J45 to the Router you can hook it to a linksys Bridge and now the USB HUB from Belkin becomes completely wireless. And has a Print server to boot! The model number are Belkin "Network USB Hub" and the Linksys WET54G.
Since the Hub connects to the USB devices and then converts them to a J45, to link to a network you can hook it to the llinksys device and convert it to a wireless network usb hub. It also has a print server built in.
It works. I own the same printer all in one and if you search on the internet you can pick up both devices on the cheap.
