Question about Belkin F8T003 Bluetooth (F8T003V) Wireless Adapter

3 Answers

Wirless connection dropped during printing

I am using a sony XP laptop wireless linked to a BT router. I installed an HP photosmart 8750 printer , and connected wirelessly using an ethernet Belkin printer adaptor. I use it for A3 printing which it manages sometimes, but it can also commonly either produce printing atrefacts as lines across the print, or as annoying it will drop the connection during printing which is about 10 - 13 minutes. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Ok this is going to have to be a trial and error solution, as there are too many variables with the various wireless devices We were just discussing that most of there wireless printer problems are HP driver related, having spent several hours on 3 HP's before getting them operational, some would print and not copy and vice-versa. Here is what worked on 3 out of 4. I have to assume that you are running more than the printer in wireless mode like a laptop, and that is working, not having issues. If that is the case, I would try this, go into the control panel, and then system and device manager, to hardware, first see if any of your hardware has a yellow mark, like an exclamation point next to it. Then if everything is installed and all of the components are showing up properly, I would try un- installing the printer. and then restarting the computer, it should pick up the machine as it did when you first installed it. Then it will ask for the driver disk, use the disk, unless there are newer drivers online for the printer, don't allow it to re install the driver on your hard drive, or we are just back to the same problem, I am thinking you have a corrupted driver file, once you reinstall the software, re boot one more time, and try it.If this works it will be a huge time benefit. It will be a real difficult diagnoses otherwise trying to see if all of the wireless components work. One more thing before you start, try hard wiring the printer to the router and see if you have the same problem, good luck and Merry Christmas

Hi there
Sounds like your loosing signal periodically, how far is the range on the belkin and are you printing within range? Signal boosters can resolve this although there could be interferance from another device whice is operating close to the wireless frequency or a bad grounding wire can also be to blame

kind regards

How do i set up my printer to print wirless after setting up the wireless wizard with my router


Presumably, the wizard helped you choose an SSID and a password.

On the controls on the HP printer, enter the SSID and the password,
and then the HP will try to connect to the wireless interface on the router.

As your printer is not wireless itself I assume you shared the printer. To enable this again goto Control Panel on your desktop, select printers, right click your printer and there should be an option for sharing. Enable sharing.
Now using your Vista laptops you should connect to your home network (in your case this is probably a wireless router, as long as your desktop is connected to this router too), goto Control Panel, printers, add printer, search for printer not connected to this copmputer (or network printer).
Hopefully the Vista laptops will then pick it up and install it correctly. You may be asked to install the correct driver for the vista machines. Windows should provide you with instructions on how to do this.
Hope this helps,www.PuterCare.com

You are using the wrong cable. Connect the printer to your router with an ETHERNET cable - not USB. Then then printer will have an IP address. Then it should be able to connect without the intermittent off and on that you have been experiencing.

Wirless Printer won"t network with the router


Check your wireless security settings and make sure the mac address of your printer is allowed to connect to the router. In addition, I would set my printer to only allow incoming connections from the router or you will have people driving by, printing ads that you probably will not like.
