Print out your config settings on the printer.

go to add a printer, set it as a local attached printer, and set the port to TCP/IP. From there enter in the IP Address of the printer that you are trying to print to from the config page i had you print out.

After that is completed install the print drivers and you are good to go.

Pc cannot see wireless printer

hi im new to this site but i had the same problem with an epson printer. have you tried port forwarding the printer with a static ip address. i also had to download an app for my samsung phone to connect to printer as it would not see it, also if you click open a photo on your laptop then go to print, it should ask you to install a printer. ( look for drop down menu and look for install printer not microsoft xps document writer) choose add a network or wireless printer and you should see it on your list of printers. hope this helps

My kodak ESP 7250 printer will not print wirelessly from one of my laptops..It say cannot connect to network on the laptop when I try to print.. My desktop and other laptop prints fine on it.Help I have...

This is one of the common connectivity issues marring the benefits of having a wireless printer. In this situation your printer will not print when connected wirelessly but would need you to set it up with your system using a USB cable. Try resetting the IP of your system to what is mentioned in the printer and in case there is a router connecting your printer and system then use the IP address of router and put it in your system. This should help you fix this printer issue.

I have an HP officejet h470 with a wireless usb card and i don't see in the install how to set it up so that i can acsess the printer with out a network.

I can help, I had the same problem. So first you must reset the printer and set a network. The little button on the back that is 1,2,3. Just pick one and leave it there forever. Next you must uninstall the printer from your computer since you need to just start all over. Place the install disc for the printer and choose the uninstall option and follow those instructions. Next you need to reset the printer of all network activity. You do this by holding down the power button and pressing the X button twice then pressing the down arrow button six times. This resets your printers wireless setting to factory fresh. One you do all this reinstall the printer with the install disc. But first make sure the printer is on and connected to the laptop with a USB cable and also connect to your laptop wireless as well and make sure the printer is on and the wireless card installed on the printer. It will not print but it will have a connection to your laptop at this point. When you see the options on the printer install, choose the option install a wireless device and not the bluetooth. It will the go through some things and when it finally says that it cannot find your printer choose next and find your network. If it is not listed on your choices manually put it in. Your SSID is hpsetup. This will then let our laptop find your printer and follow all of the instructions to finish the printer install and then the wireless card installation. Hope this helps. Just make sure everything is hooked up and connected USB and wirelessly before starting the install. This is the deal breaker. If not, it will not work.

Cant connect printer to wireless laptop.

have you setup the wireless connection in between the printer and the laptop...
your laptop is working wirelessly with the internet but for making the printer to use it wirelessly the printer should be also a wireless printer.

and if the printer is a wireless printer then you have to setup the connection in between the printer & laptop to work wirelessly.
