How do i connect my epsonR300inkjet printer wirelessly


Network printing with a non-networked printer
This model printer has only an USB printer connection andnormally connected to a computer or laptop.
To connect this printer wirelessly to all laptops on your wireless networkthere are a couple of methods.
Connect the printer to a desktop computer and setup the printer as a sharedprinter. Next connect the desktop computer to your wireless router with a LANcable and then configure the wireless laptops to connect to the shared printeron the desktop computer. NOTE - This desktop computer and printer must be on atall times for the wireless laptops to print to the printer.
OTHER METHOD
Connect the printer to an USB print server and connect the print server to thewireless router with a LAN cable. The printer drivers needs to be installed onall the wireless laptops and then the printer port needs to be deleted from theUSB port and a new IP address printer port installed. This IP address will bethe IP address of the print server.

I have brought a lexmark x4975 printer with no manual or disk.... and have not got a clue how to set up wireless printing... please help


Wireless printing happens in conjunction with your wireless router. You need the access information for that. Then go to Lexmark website and download and install the software for that printer, and follow the directions exactly. Each computer will need software installed in order to connect.

Samsung CLP 300 - Drivers keep disabling


The printer is probably not getting the same IP address every time. Set a static IP address outside of the range being used for DHCP addressing. If the entire range is set for DHCP, you will need to adjust that range so the printer's IP is no longer in it.
