    I don't know = I assume it is internal because it is just a computer - not other boxes, etc. ..

    Are you trying to share the printer out when it is attached to a computer or do you have it connected to a router with a network cable?

    Are you using an external print server or is it internal?

I am going to assume that the printer is plugged directly into the desktop and if so then you need to go to printer and setting and setup you color laserjet as a shared printer. Now see if you can see the printer on your network, thru the wireless connection on the laptop.
once done that will probbably work, but you are probbably going to need your desktop on to print

How to add NIC in HP color laserjet CP1215 Printer?


If this model HP does not have an expansion slot for a HP Jetdirect Print server, then to use this printer on your network you have two options.
1. Connect the printer to a desktop computer on your network and set it uo as a shared printer. This means this computer and printer needs to be powered up for the other computer on your network to print to the shared printer.
2. Connect the printer to a print server that is connected to your network.

Can't print to HP 2600n over network


The LaserJet 2600N has a built-in print server and can be connected to the local network (normal ethernet cable) directly. While printer sharing via Windows should work, I found it much more convenient to access it without the need of a hosting computer - you do not need to switch on the desktop PC for printing from the Laptop, for example, its also printing faster.

Network Vista Wireless Laptop to XP Desktop & Print Documents


On the desktop machine - go to the printers folder, right click the icon for the Laserjet and choose sharing (enable print sharing). You should be able to name the printer and make it accessible to anyone within the workgroup. If needed you can run the network setup wizard to change the workgroup names on both machines.

On the laptop go to add new printer and choose network printer, you should be able to browse to the desktop machine by name and choose the Laserjet as a printer (whether you want it to be the default is up to you). The laptop will download and install the drivers from the desktop pc to the laptop and set the correct network path automatically.

It goes without saying that the desktop machine must be on in order to print from the laptop in this scenario.

HP LaserJet 3550 spits out blank paper when job sent from computer but prints fine when printing directly from printer


Try connecting the printer via the USB port on either one of the computers. Then test if the machine prints fine then likely possibility is that the Network interface card is faulty remove the network card and install in a different slot and test. If the same thing happens then reinstall the drivers and test.

Hope this helps
Thanks J
