    Hi, I'd like to be able to print wirelessly on my MP780 from my laptop (I'd like to scan too but that's not as high a priority). Can you tell me what wireless print server you're using? (Someone bought me a Netgear WGPS606 for Xmas but the compatibility list on the Netgear website says it's incompatible with the MP780 so I'm about to return it!)

    My guess would be that the wireless print server has no scan functionality.

    You will most likely have to connect via usb when you want to scan.

Wireless connection with a wireless router (Netgear WNDR 4000) a pc and a laptop.

I assume you connect your printer to the desktop with the USB cable.
I assume the laptop is connected to the Wifi network.

First you need to setup the printer to connect to the wireless network. Follow the printer installation instructions to do that.
Next insert the install Disc into the laptop and follow the installation instructions. Use the network installation section.

The printer has a built-in server for printing.
If UPNP is enabled on the router then you should be able to browse the printer on the network.

Can we use MF6550 for wireless network?

If you use a wireless USB print server like this . Keep in mind that you may not get all functions such as scanning to work but it will allow for printing for sure. If the scanning works consider it a bonus.

Following the steps outlined in the wizard I did manage to install the print server utility on one of our computers (my wife's notebook / Windows 7) and get it to print successfully. However, when I...

Oddly enough I did almost the exact same thing. I sucessfully installed and printed a test page on my wife's Win7 notebook, and was almost ready to install on my XP Pro notebook and daughter's computer. When I got it installed on my XP Pro notebook, it failed. Since then I have been trying to get the network to see it. It doesn't work! Even when I hardwire plug directly into my router, the router does not acknowledge something is plugged in. To eliminate the possibility of faulty networking cable, I used the same port and cable for my Apple TV unit. It worked just fine. The the TEW-MP1U appears to be a brick at this point. It only gives a green status light, my appears to have no network functionality any longer, wired or wireless. What gives?????????????

Wondering what I need to print wirelessly from laptop with this printer

If you printer hasn't a built-in wireless connection and if you haven't a wireless router then -
You need a wireless router plus print server. Connect this print server to the wireless router with a LAN cable. Then the printer is then connected to the print server's printer port.
The laptop's wireless card is then configured with the router's wireless settings.
The laptop is then installed with the printer driver and the printer port needs to be changed/configured with the print server's IP address.
If the printer is connected to a desktop computer on your home LAN and it is also connected to your wireless router. Then you can set this printer as A Shared Printer on your desktop computer, but this desktop computer and the printer has to be powered up for the laptop to print to the printer.
For instruction on setting up a shares network printer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

Cannot print from laptop to printer using wireless print server

This is probably the Software Firewall on your laptop

you should probably tell your firewall software that you have an internal network (Laptop-desktop-printer) you should add the IP range of the wireless network as a trusted network.

and "Member of" / Add / Advanced / Search /

Have a nice day. P
