Depends on the printer. If it is a new computer, that it should be connected to the USB port. If its quite an old printer than it could be using a parallel port

I just purchased a new computer HP, and I don't know how to add my old printer HP. Before I was wired but now I'm wireless. Please help


What kind of printer is it? How did it hook up to the old one physically? Was it a usb cable or an ethernet cable like the computer?

I have my Canon MX420 printer hooked up, my computer recognizes it's existence, and the printer prints fine by itself. However, every time I try to print from my computer via wi-fi, my computer says...


If your printer has the network cable plugged into it then your halfway there. Make sure that as well as having a hard line network cable plugged into your router, you need to connect the printer to the wifi signal as well. On your printer, push your settings button, scroll to your wireless lan setup, and connect to your router and if password protected, enter in the password and you should then be connected to you router, now try printing using your laptop or device through your wireless connection, and it should print. Please post back if you need further instructions or help!

I lost my instructions to hook up my printer to my computer i have a canon mx310.. i need to know which phone cord goes into the computer and printer?????


I hope this installation/setup guide will help you [Click Here]. If I am right, you don't need a phone cord to connect the printer and the computer, but a USB cable. If it's in case of Fax, you would need the phone cord to connect the line to the printer/fax machine.

If you need further help, let me know.

Good Luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

You will need a USB cable to connect the printer to your computer. The USB has Type A on one end and Type B on the other. You can purchase this from any electronic shops around your area or you can also call Lexmark Technical Support to request for one. Lexmark printers that are capable of wireless connection have a Wifi light (usually found on the upper right corner on its front face). But before you're able to connect wireless successfully, you will still need to connect the printer to your computer temporarily with the usb cable for configuration. Hope this helps.

Switching from copy to print from computer


If you look carefully at the printer you'll note that there is no button for "Print" and the reason for this is that all the other functions are for using the printer as if it wasn't connected, nor needed a computer.

All your printing functions that DO use a computer require you to interact with the printer via the computer.

In short, to use the printer from the computer you'll need to make sure you've installed the correct drivers (see your installation CD or the Canon website) and then plug the printer in using a USB cable connection to your computer. If the computer recognises the printer you'll then be able to print.

In a nutshell if your printer is connected and drivers installed properly it doesn't matter what your printer has selected on the printers own control panel, you just print :)

Hope that helps.
