How do i connect to a printer


Hi Jenelle
I think we will need more information to be sure to fix this problem, like the model of the printer and are you trying to connect to it with USB cable or through network (with LAN or with wifi).

in most cases anyway make sure the wires are connected correctly (USB) and download the below link to identify and install your printer if it's not installed correctly.
press the identify now button after connecting it with USB.

How do I connect my HP 8250 Wirelessly? I have a router and a Linksys wireless-B adapter.


Make sure your router is set to accept Wireless-B connections...most aren't. Log into your router and setup wireless, using an SSID and security. Then connect with your laptop and you're good to go.

Where does the printer hook up to the computer


You will need to purchase a printer USB cable for this printer. They are relatively inexpensive and can be found at any store with an electronics department. I feel your pain on this issue as I find it very annoying that these peices are extra.

The flat rectangular USB end plugs into an available USB slot on your computer while the more square end plugs into the back of the printer.

Hope this helps!

It looks like it isn't an hp wireless printer. You can connect to the printer via a usb cord and download the software from HP if you want to. Another way is have the printer connected to a wired computer via usb and share the printer and then with the other computer on you could print pages from the wireless laptop to the printer.

Cannot connect a hp psc 2410 printer to dell inspiron 1000 laptop


Try a powered USB hub, this will boost the power in the USB curcuit.
Also ensure that in Device Manager, USB Root HUB, Power Management tab, that the option to let windows turn off the device is unchecked.

I am not sure what device I need to hook up the printer to my com


Hi, for this model you will want to use a USB cable, it will most likely have a square connector on one end (connects to the printer) and a rectangle connector on the other end (connects to the computer) the phone jack looking thing if for an ethernet cable so you can use it as a network printer.
