If you are no longer on that network that the printer is on and you can' t configure the router, setting up this printer will be next to impossible. If you know the network administrator, you might be able to work something out with the IT department if you explain you need it for a work related function

The USB port on the printer is loose and therefore not communicating with my computer.


You can open up the printer and try to fix it, but in fact you will probably need a new part which will have to be soldered in.

An easier solution would be to use the parallel port connection, if there is one. Newer printers don't always have them, and I don't think the 3055 has one.

On the other hand, newer printers often have an ethernet connection, and you should be able to use this instead of the USB. I'm pretty sure the HP 3055 has an ethnet port. You'll need an RJ45 wire. You can get a USB to RJ45 adapter if you need to plug the other end of the cable into your PC's USB port (e.g. if your PC has only one ethernet port and you're already using it for broadband).

Hope that helps a bit. Good luck!

I have an HP LaserJet printer 4050N with RJ45 and Parallel Port. The Printer is kind of far from the WireLess router and I can't connect it. Unfortunately, my PC doesn't have a parallel port. The best...


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.

Does hp laserjet 5200 have netword printer


Here is your network guide for the 5200n printer
If you do not have the 5200n printer, it is not network. You will need a 'print server' ($100 approx). Get USB or Parallel, depending on the connection it uses.

How to get Panasonic KX-P2123 printer to work with USB port


Cables are available from a number of sources which will convert from a USB plug for your computer to a serial or parallel connector for your printer. (I don't remember for sure whether that Panasonic is serial or parallel. I think it's a parallel printer and uses a Centronics connector.) Do a search for "centronics to USB" or "serial to USB" and you will find links to a number of sources.

2WIRE wireless router/DSL from AT&T


unless this is a wireless enabled or lan RJ45 connectable printer you cannot, the pc that the printer is connected to must be on at the time of the printing.

Wireless printers have their own arial and allocated ip address, Lan RJ45 connective printers can be connected to the router.
