First you have to make sure that the printer has a wireless card. If the device does not you must purchase and have it installed. Also your computer needs to be hooked to a wireless router or have a wireless card installed so that the printer and computer can both be seen and communicate. Some printers, depending on age, can not be upgraded to be wireless.

Do I need a cord from my computor to the printer to set it up or just the disk?


While this may seem oversimplified, RTM = Read The Manual on setup.


If it's wireless, you don't need a cable to setup the printer with the computer's OS.

If it isn't wireless, then yes, you will need a printer cable to set the printer up with the computer OS.

Installing OKI c3400n in Windows 7 32 bit


The c3400n does not have its own wireless capability. It must be connected to a wireless print server or to some wired network that has a wireless access point (WAP) connected to it. A third option is to use a home-networking wireless router.

Individual PCs must have wireless capability also, or they can't print over wireless.

Somewhere along the line the printer must get a local network IP address, i.e. 192.168.0.102. PCs usually use Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) to get an IP address.

But printers are usually manually set to a 'static' IP, because static IPs don't change over time.

Usually there is a security device called a 'firewall' to protect the wired network from unwanted wireless traffic.

So, you first require some form of wireless access.

The people who require wireless printing capability must have their computers configured to make an association to the WAP. Usually requires a passkey or password, depending on the wireless security method.

A port on the firewall must be forwarded to the port used by whichever network-printing protocol is being used to communicate with the printer. There are several possible protocols.

The printer must be set to an IP address unique within the private subnet, i.e. 192.168.0.0/16, used by the local network.

PC-based network-connected devices use IP (Internet Protocol) addressing, i.e. xyz.zxy.yzx.xzy

The printer must be connected to a network switch that is in some way accessible to the WAP. Residential/SOHO (Small Office Home Office) setups use a combination switch/router device, called simply: a router.

Most of the above is done automatically, but there are some set-up tasks that require user intervention. Electronic devices know how to configure everything, after they are given proper parameters.

All you need to do is check the above items. If the printer is found by MS Windows 'searching for network printers', the hard part is done. Then you just tell Windows to use the network printer.

Hp pavilion dv8000 wireless printer does not work


Do you have more than one instance of the printer installed. If that happens the computer gets confused and don't know which one to print to. Also only one can be active if you have two instances of the same printer and you could be printing to the inactive one. Click Start/Control Panel and check your printers to insure that there is not more than one instance of the same printer installed.

Also check down at the bottom right near the time and if you see the printer icon open it and clear out the queue. If you've printed to an inactive printer the queue will block you so just delete or cancel the items in the queue.

Also check your printer properties to make sure it is printing to a TCPIP wireless connection and not a usb connection.

Hello. My husband and I recently purchased a Samsung CLP-325 Colour Printer to use for both of our computers. He wanted to create a printer where we can both print from our separate computers. However,...


Hi Dina,

Is the printer directly connected to your husband's computer?

If so your husband's computer MUST be switched on AND connected to the network. Depending on your settings your husband's computer may have to be logged in, for it to be 'connected to the network'

Also power saving could be causing you problems. I.e. your husbands machine may be going into 'sleep' mode when not in use. You can adjust the 'power saving' options from control panel (on your husband's machine) to prevent the computer going off-network and therefore setting your printer 'off-line'

Hope this helps.

Please take the time to rate this answer. Many Thanks Don.

Can i print with only a black cartridge installed


No sir you can't. Your printer will only print if it has all cartridges installed and at least partially full - I don't know why they do this on new printers, but it's the way it is. Sorry about that! Alex

I don't know how to make my Lexmark 4530 print wirelessly. My internet connection is wireless, but I don't know how to get my printer to print wirelessly.


download the installation software from lexmark. You will need to connect it to the computer via a USB cable to run the setup. Just follow the prompts and it will set up the printer on your wireless network. You will run this same software on each additional computer that you want to print to this printer.
