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.

2. Right click on the printer, select remove device
3. Click on your Start Menu, then All Programs
4. Click on the HP folder
5. Click on your printer, then printer set up and software
6. Click on add a new printer, click on wireless (This is where you can temporarily connect your USB cord)

Hello, im trying to install my wirless printer to my wireless computer and im having some difficulties. for example its asking me to check my wireless LAN access point.. I dont know waht that is? im...


The Canon is trying to connect to a wireless router or wireless access point which is connected to your computer network. Your Sprint 3g device is a wireless broadband device for Internet connection and cannot connect to the Canon using this device.
You need a wireless card that connects to the wireless router or wireless access point.
Otherwise you can connect to your printer using a printer cable.

How to hook up a wireless printer to a computer


Does the printer also have some "wired" interface (parallel-port, or USB-port)?

If not, then you need to purchase a router with wireless capability:

1. Connect cable-modem (or DSL-modem) to the 'WAN' (or 'IInternet') port on the router.

2. Connect one of the 'LAN' ports on the router to the network-port on your computer.

3. Configure the wireless-adapter inside the router:
* set an SSID -- the "name" of your wireless network
* encryption-level -- use 'WPA' or 'WPA2'
* a password for your network

4. Configure the wireless printer to connect to that SSID, using the password

5. On the computer, click "Add Networked Printer"

6. Print a "test" page: computer -> wired -> router -> wireless -> printer

How can I connect my printer to my wireless network


If you have a wireless-enabled printer, you can use the printer's configuration to connect it to the router. If you have a wired connection printer (ethernet port) connect it to one of the ports on the back of the router with an Ethernet cable and the printer should sort itself out. If your printer is not network-enabled, you will need to connect it directly to a network-connected computer, then use Windows' sharing settings to share the printer to the network.
Hope this helps, Alistair

How do I set it up for wireless


Install a printer on a home network The most common way to install a printer on a home network is to install it as a stand-alone device on the network, and then add a connection to the printer on each computer that is on the network.
If you're not sure what type of network printer to install, decide if you want to:
  • Use a wireless printer. These printers use a built-in wireless card and plug into a power source, not your network or computer. After you turn on the printer, you need to refer to the information that came with the printer to set up a wireless connection to each computer on a home network. Security options for wireless printing are determined by each printer manufacturer.
  • Connect a printer directly to the network. To do this, you need to plug in the printer to your network hub or router. How to install these printers depends on whether the printer and your network device use an Ethernet, universal serial bus (USB), or another type of connection. You also need to refer to any installation information or tools provided by the printer manufacturer.
  • Connect more than one printer directly to the network. To do this, your hub or router must be able to support more than one printer connection.

Connecting a brother hl2170 wirless printer to a linksys wrt54g


Take note all the wireless settings of the router first. Now go to the printer and Press Menu/Settings, look for wireless setup wizard. It should find the network, highlight it and connect. If it asks you for the network key, type your wireless network key. It only allows WPA-Personal(TKIP) and WEP. If you have WPA2 or AES, it will not connect

Trying to connect printer to computer wireless


  1. Step 1 Check if your printer is network ready. Many newer models are designed to work on networks. Examine the documentation to see if your printer supports Wi-Fi (802.11x) or Bluetooth.
  2. Step 2 Add network support to your printer. If your printer is not already wireless you can connect it to a wireless routermag-glass_10x10.gif using the RJ-45 Jack (it resembles a large telephone jack). You can also buy an expansion card that will add a jack or buy an external print server that will connect to the USB or parallel port.
  3. Step 3 Connect your printer to the network. If your printer is not wired, you’ll have to connect it directly to your wireless router. Connect a networking cable from the RJ-45 Jack on the printer (or adapter) to the router. Plug it into any jack except the UPLINK. The printer should automatically connect to the network when turned on.
  4. Step 4 Install printer drivers on all computers. Using the disc that came with the printer or drivers downloaded from the manufacturer, install the printer’s drivers onto each computer on the network.
  5. Step 5 Print. You should be able to access the printer just like any other wireless device. Select the printer from the Print menu when you print.
  6. Share Your Printer in Windows
  7. Step 1 Install the printer. Set up the printer as normal on a machine that is already connected to the wireless network. Connect all necessary cables and install all necessary drivers.
  8. Step 2 Open the printers and faxes folder. Click "Start," then "Control Panel," then "Printers and Other Hardware" and then "Printers and Faxes."
  9. Step 3 Share your printer. Find the icon for the printer you just installed. Click the icon once and then select SHARE THIS PRINTER in the tasks pane on the left. Now, right click the icon, select properties and go to the SHARING tab. Click "Share Name," and then click "Okay."
  10. Step 4 Connect to the printer. On the other computers within the network, open the control panel and click "Printers and Other Hardware." Select "Add a Printer."
  11. Step 5 Select "Printer Connection." When prompted, select this option instead of the local printer. Find and select the printer you just installed and select it.
  12. Step 6 Print as normal. Next time you print a page, send it to your networked printer.

Hope this Help.

Cheers!!!!

Printing to a network via wireless router


Usually wireless routers prohibit master browser (network neighborhood) communications from traversing between the wireless and wired computers. You can usually overcome this by setting a static ip address for the computers with the printers so that they are not a moving target (addresses are always changing with DHCP). Then you can use UNC paths to get from wireless computer to your target on internal network. For example, to connect to printer (with shared name BrotherH) on a wired computer with static ip address of 192.168.0.19, on wireless computer create a network printer and manually enter the address \\192.168.0.19\BrotherH , now the wireless computer should be able to traverse and connect to the wired printer.


Your wireless router should have a pool of static ip addresses available, say 192.168.1.1-49, you can specify this to your liking, and then you can also have a block of handed out DHCP numbers, say 192.168.50-60 or whatever.
