The router doesn't send signals to a printer. The Linksys transmits a radio signal recieved by the wireless adapters on other devices, if your printer has wireless compatibility it must be setup on the printer, in the wireless settings. I don't think it's a Linksys issue. It a computer software issue. If you post the Computer Make, Model, and your OS, the Printer Make, mode,l I will try to help you. Is this the first time using the Printer?

This is a well documented problem with linksys routers. Go to google and type in "error 321 linksys". You will have to manually configure the router as stated on the linksys forum posts.

How to fix 49.2fa7 error


Try again with out connecting network cable or usb cable . If the message does not come on, you have a bad job trying to print each time the printers signals the network it is ready. You need to delete the bad job. Sometimes you can keep the network cable disconnected until it comes to ready and then plug it in and keep hitting the cancel button in attempt to cancel the job, but most times you need to delete the job at the computer or server which is sending it.

Hi there, i got a usb air card for my laptop and i want to send out a signal to my belkin wireless router (with a cable) so that it can send out a wireless signal and be able to put my wireless printer on...


Sure, I can help. First off I need to know more information. Are you planning on connecting the printer, through USB, to your laptop then sharing the printer from there to other computers? If so, it is a matter of adding that printer, going into the printer properties, sharing tab, and sharing the printer. Or are you trying to share your printer wirelessly? If so you may need to buy a wireless print server. It acts as a base to share that printer and then allow you to wirelessly find it and connect. If the above doesn't help please tell me the make and model of your printer, laptop, and wireless router.
Best, -Mind

Connecting wi-fi on Epson SX600FW


I hada the same problem. I used the settings on the actual printer rather than through the software to input the information it needed and It works fine now. I was able to set it up on my husbands laptop without any problems, I just added his laptop through installing the software on his laptops as it had picked up the signal and was showing in the Network and sharing centre on Windows Vista premium. Hope this helps. I think you need to take the wire out now and now load it as wireless. You need to use the wire first to connect then take it out to connect to the wirelss network. My router is a Sky router.

HP C8180 has built in wireless adapter and Ethernet according the Website at HP.

If this is connecting to the network wirelessly, check to see that it is connected to the Network, is your router using secure passwords for a connection to the network,
Your printer will need these passwords just as your computers would
If you connect the printer with a Lan Cable, it will be more reliable, and shouldn’t need a password to be on the network. And makes life a little easier...

Your internet provider has nothing to do with your Printer not printing; this is an Internal Network Problem. The settings or your network has changed.

The Printer should have a static IP address

How do i hook up a westell router to a moterola comcast modem?


Okay, well something is obviously wrong.
This is how it should be connected. Internet to modem, then with an Ethernet cable, connect the modem to the router (jack1) then with another Ethernet cable, connect the router (jack2) to the computer.
If you are still having problems, then contact your company to see if they could walk you through it, or if they needed to set things up.
Also, where are you connecting your laptop from? Is it very far from the router? Perhaps your router's signal strength isn't great enough? (This would mean getting a new, more powerful router.)
