If your laptop is wireless then you don't need to connect the laptop to an ethernet wired connection. The ethernet does the same thing as the wireless. But if that is want you want to do it will work.

Printer is linked to my desktop as well as my laptop. Works from desktop fine. From laptop, I have to touch my desktop keyboard and it prints, otherwise status says offline (laptop) HELP !!


If you connected the desktop with a hardwire connection (ethernet cable or usb cable) and the laptop is connected wirelessly, then the Desktop needs to be "awake" for the laptop to print. What I did was connect the printer to the network with an ethernet cable to the router, either wireless router or standard. Then you have a seamless connection for both computers independent of each other.

Instead of using a usb cable, I want to print wirelessly from laptop or iPad to my Canon PIXMA MP810 Printer. I have a wireless router with spare ethernet plugs at rear. What are my alternatives ? for...


You could purchase a ethernet print server which will allow you to connect your printer to the router via ethernet cable. I recommend the TPLink TL-PS110U. I use this for one of the printers in my office.

Alternatively, you could purchase the TPLink
TL-WPS510U. This is a wireless print server. It will give you some freedom if you wish to locate your printer to somewhere other than beside your router.

I have a HP Officejet Pro 8500 printer, Model No. A909a. Is it a wireless printer? Can I connect my laptop to the printer with an ethernet cable?


Yes to both your questions!

If your laptop has wireless you need not use the cable if you connect via wireless to the internet router, you can use printer wireless to , you just need to seup the laptop to use the facilty.

You setup the printer through "Tools" look for Network and "Wireles Setup Wizard"

Same applies with the laptop through control panel.

My d link router will not connect to the internet from my phone jack. I where I receive my phone and internet connections. What steps do I take to install to receive the highh speed connections?


The phone jack must be connected to a modem, which is then connected to the router via an ethernet cable. To connect:
1. Connect the phone cord from the jack in the wall to the jack in your modem of choice. Turn on the modem. 2. Connect a CAT-5 ethernet cable from the correct jack in the modem to the correct jack in the router. 3. If using a wired connection, connect an ethernet cable from the router to your computer. Otherwise, simply activate the wireless card of your computer and select from the available wireless networks.

It says it cant connect to xbox live even though i have a ethernet cable hooked up to my lab top running to the back of my xbox 360.


Depending upon your Internet setup connecting your XBox cannot give you Internet access to XBox Live.
For a least complicated method, you need to connect the XBox to a DSL or cable modem that has Internet connection via your Internet Service Provider.

How is your laptop connected to the Internet?
This information would assist me to help you.

I do not know how to connect my Photosmart C4750 to my wireless router.


Use an Ethernet cable to connect the network-port on your desktop/laptop to one of the LAN ports on the router.
Start Internet Explorer.
Access the web-server "inside" the router.
Run the "Wireless Network Setup Wizard",
to configure a SSID, your level of encryption (use 'WPA') and a password/pass-phrase.

Then, on the printer, configure its wireless interface to connect to that SSID, using that password.

Set up 2 wireless routers, 1st for printer, 2nd for internet


You should only need one wireless router for everything. The purpose of the router is to "route" multiple devices together. Your set-up should be something like this:

Modem connected to wireless router via Ethernet cable.
Wireless router broadcasting wireless internet connection.
Computer(s) connected to wireless router via cable or wireless adapter.
Computer with network printer sharing enabled.
Turn on wireless printer.
You should be able to detect the printer via Windows.

HP 7280 interrupts Internet


Wirelessly at first. The results of this will determine whether or not you need to connect via an ethernet cable. Note however, if you've never connected to this router via an ethernet cable, it's very likely that it's simply not correctly setup for this. You can of course, also try connecting the printer via an ethernet cable and monitor whether or not the problem persists (this will also help allow you to determine the source of the problem).
