    we are connected through a router. problem is that I am supposed to make a network setup disc so the vista computer can get set up and I am unable to do that.

    have done all of the above, vista needs my xp to all it to share. I don't know what a flash/thumb drive is but will check it out. Thank you.

Hi,

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

Initially, pls try enabling the Share feature of the printer in XP. Pls go to Start, Printers & Faxes, right click on the printer you want to share, click on Sharing...follow on screen instructions. A few suggestions:

  • verify that the Vista and the XP uses the same Workgroup;
  • verify that other shared folders and files could be viewed from each other;
  • verify that each could access the internet from a single connection.
A few questions:
  • do you have a router or a hub;
  • how are the XP and Vista connected to the network, LAN cables or wireless.
  • confirm that it is a HP > PSC 1510 All-In-One InkJet Printer that is connected to the XP machine.
Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

    Lets try two alternatives:


    • in lieu of a setup disc, would the system allow the setup files to be saved on a flash/thumb drive? and/or

    • enable printer sharing in the XP machine, on the Vista machine, click on Printers & Faxes, Add Printer, Next, select A network printer....., select Browse for a printer, choose the one installed in the XP, Yes to all.

We have an oj8500 (not wireless) printer connected to one computer operating on windows xp. We can to add a computer operating on windows vista to the printer. is there a way to do it that works? if so,...


Yes, if both these computers are on a network (wireless or wired, doesn't matter), the printer can be shared on the XP machine and then found and installed on the Vista machine.
The only disadvantage is that the sharing machine must be on all the time in order to make the printer available to the other computer.
To share a printer, open the Printers and Faxes applet from Start Menu -> Settings, right-click your printer and choose Sharing. The system will guide you.
Afterwards on the Vista computer you must install a new printer and tell it to search for a network printer - it should be found and installed quite easily.

Please come back and rate the solution if helped or post a comment for further assistance.
Thank you for using FixYa, the community-based help site :)

Unable to find printer sharing for mfc6890 over window xp


To set up printer sharing in your home network, you need to configure printer options in the control panel of Windows XP Operating System. You could get a menu while right clicking the printer icon in the Control Panel. From this, you need to select the sharing option. You also need to make sure that you have enabled printer sharing option in the network card properties. To connect a printer in the network you need to set an IP address for your printer. If you have any troubles with printing with your printer in the network it might due to the errors in the network. So, you need to make sure the network connection.

Is the printer connected via USB to the XP computer?
How did you map the shared printer (ie; what port)
When you're on a Vista machine, go to Network, find thw XP computer, explore, can you access the printer through this method? I need to know if Vista machines were set up with this printer on Local Port or Connected to this machine.

Print sharing


No matter how you slice it, if you want to share the printer, you will be creating a network. If I remember this printer correctly, it has an Ethernet port to connect to a network or USB to connect ot a computer. If your router supports wired connections, you can connect it there and just inistall drivers on each device and selec tthe network option. If not, you will probably want to connect it via USB to your desktop machine and enable print sharing on that machine. Te enable printer sharing, open up the Network and Sharing Center. In the Sharing and Discovery section, turn on the option for Printer Sharing. You will still need to install the XP driver on the netbook and select the network option, but give it the proper network location (ie.\\mycomputer\this printer).

Want to share 922all in one on xp desktop with laptop using Vista


I have a network running both an XP computer & a Vista computer. What I had to do after connecting them both to the router was make an internet connection with 1 computer, turn on the printer so everything the network was going to share was powered on; then run the network wizard on both computers. Once I did this the computer that the printer is not physically connected to installed the printer driver. Once this entire process was completed we had internet on both computers as well as both computers being able to send jobs to the same printer. Has worked great for over a year. Hope this helps you out.

Network printe on vista


Accessing a Shared Printer To access a shared printer from a computer running Windows Vista, do the following:
  1. Click Start, and then click Network. The Network window displays a list of computers in the workgroup of the computer.
  2. Double-click the name of the computer containing the shared printer that you want to access.
  3. Right-click the shared printer that you want to access, and then click Connect. Alternately, you can double-click on Printers to see just the list of shared printers, and then right-click the shared printer that you want to access, and then click Connect.
After you have connected to the shared printer, you will be able to print to this shared printer as long as the printer and the computer sharing the printer are turned on.


please note that in network the computer that has the network printer if it is running XP may take as long as 15minutes to be recognized.

HP 3100 LaserJet All-in-one Print Driver for Vista OS


It doesn't work in share mode either...It prints the pages incorrectly. I have the hp3100 connected to my xp pc and my vista laptop connects to it via printer sharing on my network. the xp prints fine but the vista doesn't print ok due to lack of driver support for it.

I have to resort to print to pdf and then take the pdf to my xp for printing. Its a half *** solution but if anybody out there made his/her own driver please post.
