    Is the printer physically connected to the laptop or another computer. If it is connected to another computer, what is the OS and is it already shared. What is the Workgroup or Domain of each of the computers.

The Dell A920 all-in-one is only compatible with Windows 2000 or Xp, if you are using Vista you will need a different system.

How do i set up my hp laptop to wifi


Please Understand wireless network settings and setup:

Wireless networks depend on special-purpose radio receivers and transmitters that substitute the exchange of messages over the air for the exchange of messages that occurs over wired connections on conventional networks. When you power on your PC, Windows Vista automatically searches for available wireless networks.
The network icon in the system tray, shown in Figure 1, enables you to view a list of local networks that Windows Vista detects. Notice that the network icon in this figure is marked with a red X, which indicates no network connection is currently established.

Figure 1: A red X indicates no network connection is active.
When you click this icon, a window opens indicating you're not connected to a wireless network, as shown in Figure 2.
hpsmb_laptoppcwireless-fg02.jpg Figure 2: The detail window for the network icon provides a link to create a network connection. The window also includes two hyperlinks: Connect to a network and Network and Sharing Center. Click the Connect to a network link to open the Connect to a network window, shown in Figure 3.

My printers that are on my wireless network won't print


Did you define the printers and printer ports to the laptops?


On the XP laptop go to network connections in the control panel and use the network setup wizard.

Dell a920 network problem


I will assume you have the Printer connected directly to a PC via the USB printer cable on our network.

a. Start - Run - Control - Ok
b. Open 'Printers and Faxes"
c. Open "Dell A920"
d. Print "Test Page" to assure the printer is working and connected.
e. With the "Dell A920" properties open - find the tab for Sharing.
f. Now select Share the Printer and name it.

At each Workstation you will need do steps a-b, and add the printer. Select browse network when adding the printer and find the Workstation with the shared printer.

If your Firewall on each Workstation is blocking "Print and File Share" you will need to change the settings to allow this procedure through.

Here is a link that may help further.

You have to turn printer sharing on in vista by going to your network map and turn the printer sharing on. This should FixYa! Network Map is located in Network and Sharing Center on the computer with vista.

Dell A920 Inkjet Printer is not communicating with an HP Pavillion dv6700 laptop with Vista Operating System


It could be related to Vista. Check Dells website to see if they have a Vista driver for it.

If you have another USB Cable you can try swapping it.

If you have a spare USB Port, you can try swapping that as well.

Dell A920 with Windows Vista


Believe it or not... the driver is buried on the Dell site for Vista 64-bit. I search and searched ... and there it was.

http://support.us.dell.com/support/downloads/download.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&releaseid=R153048&formatcnt=1&libid=0&fileid=203948

In any case, I downloaded it, installed it, and it works fine. All the buttons (scan/copy) on the top work as well as printing. Now if I could just get my old XP machines to print to it on the network. But.. I think that is another thread.
