In order to do this, the laptops have to be able to communicate with each other wirelessly. I.e., you have to have a wireless network set up. If you do, then you are "printer sharing", using one laptop as the 'printer server' (with the printer connected to it) and the other as the 'client'. Step by step instructions are available at this link. Type "printer sharing" in the search box in the center of the screen and click on the Search button. Select the option that matches your requirements.

I can't get my scanner to scan a document


If you connect to it wireless, chances are you wont be able to. Only if connected straight to the computer would you be able to scan with the canon printer. I have a similar problem and that was the explanation I got from the manual and online help. After I connected directly it worked fine. Hope it helps.

Can I connect my canon mp240 printer by wireless


The Canon Pixma MP240 canot be connected to a router wirelessly. You could buy a USB printer hub which would allow you to connect your printer to a wireless router. Basically, the printer would connect to the hub over USB, the hub would connect to your router over the netowrk cable, and this would allow you to connect to the printer wirelessly.

attempt to remove and reconnect the USB cable to both the computer and printer, reinstall your printer driver, and then make sure your printer settings is set to use your correct printer. you may also try to print a test page to confirm that the printer is still working.

A Canon MP240 four-in-one no USB?


Most USB printers do not include the cable, sorry. You can get a cable at Walmart or almost anywhere, just make sure it is a USB printer cable. It will have the aprox. 3/4" wide end to match the computer and a more square end with one side of the square having an angle on two edges so it can only be pluged in one way. Good Luck
