I had the same problem and this is how I fixed it. See if this works (for windows XP). you might have to click "next' or "ok some in between the steps below

  • Open printers & faxes folder
  • Click "add a printer"
  • Select "local printer" and makes sure the plug & play box is unchecked

  • Choose "create a new port", "standard TCP/IP port"

  • Type in the IP address of your printer in the ip address box (this prints out when you do your wireless check on the printer)

  • Mine found the printer and linked up after that. It doesn't allow you to scan from the printer to the computer with this setup (or see any files on the memory cards you insert into the printer ports), but you can scan from the web browser if you type the printer's IP address into your browser.

SOURCE: Using HP laptop running Vista wireless intranet connection to HP desktop running xp and desktop hardwired connected to HP Officejet 6110. Can not get laptop to print on network. All internet and other

The printer needs to be installed by you as "Adiministrator". When installing the printer you need to hold down the "Alt" button when clicking n Add Printer function. It will then give an option of installing as Administrator.

Another option is to find an old laptop, with "wireless" capabilities and a Parallel Port.

Connect the printer to the laptop.

Connect the laptop to your wireless network.

Tell the laptop to "share" the printer.

Then, any computer on your network can "find" the networked printer, and can print to it.

Need my laptop to communicate wireless to printer


If the printer does not have a built-in network card/print server then there is a couple of ways to do this.
If you have a desktop computer connected to the wireless router with a LAN cable, then connect the printer to the desktop computer and make this printer a shared printer on your network. This means that the desktop computer and printer needs to be on when you want to print from the laptop.
The other way is to purchase a print server, connect the printer to the print server and connect the print server with a LAN cable to the Wireless router.
If you don't have sufficient network ports on the wireless router then you need to purchase a hub. Then connect the hub and wireless router with a LAN cable and then the print server to the hub and other computers to the hub.
Setting up the wireless printing will depend upon which method you want to adopt and I can advise you when further when you are ready.
