Yes it cn as long as the printer has an eathernet port on it. You would then need to install it through the network when seting it up on both computers. I hope this helps you. Also do not for get to vote for this solusion.

My Epson Label printer is showing as not connected when its connected, when trying to set up or add as new printer.


What shows mac and ip address ? printer or pc ?
If the printer displays them, it means the printer in connected to router electrically.
Check subnet mask and gateway address.
Could be set wrong if the router is not on DHCP.

I guess the issue is in the ethernet components / settings.
Start isolation by elimination of the following
1. Computer -
2. Wifi connection to the router (or)
3. Patch cable connecting computer to the wall -
4. Router -
5. Patch cable connecting the printer to the wall -
6. Printer -

The LAN printer cannot connect to Computer (PC/Mac) directly unless you use a Cross over cable.

Can I upgrade the antenna on my actiontec gt701wg router?


There are a few things thatcan cause you to lose wireless connection with your wireless router.1. Weak signal strength,check the signal strength on your wireless card. If it is weak move thewireless router away from brick or concrete walls and if possible locatethe wireless router higher up.2. Have you secured yourwireless router from people near your from unauthorized access? i.e. change thedefault password, setup encryption use WPA2 or WPA, change the default SSID,and turn off SSID broadcast, and for added protection, enable MAC addressfiltering which allows only the MAC address/es of your wireless card/s toconnect to your wireless router.3. You could be gettinginterference from electrical sources such as air conditioners, arc welders,washing machines etc. If so, the power supply to the wireless routers andcomputers etc should be connected to a surge protection power board, betterstill connect your computer equipment to an UPS (Uninterrupted PowerSupply). 4. Check the channels ofthe wireless routers and access points in your area and change the broadcastchannel on your wireless router to an unused channel or one that is currentlyused but has the weakest signal strength. This will minimize interferencewith your wireless router from other wireless routers and accesspoints in your area.

Use of HPJ4680 in a network with Mac & PC connected to router


Ok what you do is, install the printer as a LOCAL one on one of the PC's, Probably the XP, one, would be best. or perhaps the PC; actually "Connected" to the D-link router & Modem, then Now install this printer , as a LOCAL, printer, and set as DEFAULT, enable Printer Sharing. Now, ALL PC's MUST, have a Name, Belong to the same Workgroup, have a Password. On the "Other" PC's Install the Printer as a Network Printer, browse for it and connect. Print a test page from each. Remember the PC with the printer attached, must obviously be ON or the "Others" cannot connect and print.. Make sure all network permissions are set sharing is set, especially on the Win 7. Just make sure they can all "See" each other first, before try all this.. the network MUST be intact and communicatable from each PC to at least the PC with the printer attached. I have included 3 links below, to help

Using Linksys WRT54G as router connected to ActionTec with FIOS


You must keep everything on the same subnet. Only allow the router to be DHCP and keep everything on 192.168.1.x subnet. You are going to have alot of problems talking across subnets

If Actiontec doesn't have your answer, then you'll want to get a separate hub or router to connect both computers.
