How can I add a brother 145 printer so all laptops in the house can use it wireless


This model printer has only an USB printer connection and normally connected to a computer or laptop.
To connect this printer wirelessly to all laptops on your wireless network there are a couple of methods.
Connect the printer to a desktop computer and setup the printer as a shared printer. Next connect the desktop computer to your wireless router with a LAN cable and then configure the wireless laptops to connect to the shared printer on the desktop computer. NOTE - This desktop computer and printer must be on at all 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 the wireless router with a LAN cable. The printer drivers needs to be installed on all the wireless laptops and then the printer port needs to be deleted from the USB port and a new IP address printer port installed. This IP address will be the IP address of the print server.

Can i connect Hp F380 all in one printer to Linksys wrt54g, and i am using macbook, help


From looking at the printer information and the router information, you will probably need additional equipment to make this work.
The printer connects to computers using a USB cable. It does not have a network connection, either wired or wireless built in.
That means you need a print server to connect your printer to the network. Some routers have a print server built in, but the WRT54G isn't one of them.
The print server will have some USB ports to connect the printer to, and connect to the router with a cable, or wirelessly.
HP shows this option: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01428401&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&site=null&key=null&product=1128296
If you can find that one, it might work the best. Many print servers have a hard time with all-in-one devices. They are usually able to print just fine, but scanning is troublesome. Make sure to review information about any print server you get, or router with built in print server to make sure it does everything you need.
Considering the price of a print server, it might be a better option to get a new printer that has built in network support. They are more likely to work easily and well. But watch carefully to make sure it can do everything you need (print, scan etc) over the network.

Vista to Vista wireless, Can't share printer


So your third laptop which runs Vista cannot connect to the Printer and Dell machine?
There are some reasons for that. First check whether you have access to the Dell machine (whether you can reach it) Open a command prompt and do a ping to verify the connectivity. Example. ping 192.168.1.2 (The ip address should be the one of your dell machine. You can find it by running ipconfig in a command prompt on Dell machine.)
1. If you cannot reach it you have to check the network utility (wifi or any other method you use). Make sure that it function properly. 2. ping the router using router's ip address. If ping works you can reach up to their. So from there you can check the Lynksys management console to know why it blocks the machine entering the wlan. May be a addressing issue or authentication issue. If you cannot reach it however it might have problems with the connection as well. Make sure that you allow connections to the wlan on Toshiba Vista laptop if you use a antivirus solution with a firewall or any other firewall.
If you can reach the machine (or even if you cannot reach) you must check whether you have access to the workgroup (you have to join if you are not in the workgroup which you use) and you must enable file and print sharing. If you run the windows firewall that would block you in as well. Its better if you can check whether the print spooling service runs. Start -> Run Type in services.msc Hit enter. Check and enable the service.
If you can reach the Dell using a ping: Check whether the dell machine can access the laptop. Use my network places. It will ask you for the credentials. Provide them. If any error occurred try detecting the network. Add the machine properly to the workgroup. Enable access to the machines via file and print sharing in windows firewall. (go to the firewall go to Exceptions tab and select the File and Print sharing)
Check this Microsoft resource as well.

I cannot print over wireless connection. I am using the Linksys WRT54G. I am trying to print from my laptop to my HP LaserJet 1320 PCL 6 printer. I cannot see the printer from my laptop. I am using AVG...


Disable your firewall on that computer where you shared your printer.

After that check firewall settings to allow printing from the network.

Your router working ok.

Wireless printing


Check the printer's manual if the software of this printer already supports winVista. If it is, you may connect the printer directly to the PC and check if you'll be able to print.

Hope this helps!

Trying to set up a network printer with DELL TRUEMIBILE 2350...please help


using windows xp on all the computers, when you connect to the printer windows should automatically install drivers.

1. Goto My Computer, Click My Network Places (Explorer Bar).
2. Click View Workgroup Computers (Explorer Bar)
3. Find the computer that has the printer physically connected to it, open it
4. Find the printer and right click it!
5 Select Connect... and wait for the drivers to install.

this should install the print drivers and install the printer on your computer. the printer should now be available in print dialogs i.e. word etc etc and from the Control Panel > Printers window.
