Question about Cisco Photosmart C4780 Wireless AllInOne Printer With Linksys By Cisco WirelessN Broadband Router
HP Photosmart C4780 worked fine with my old computer. My new laptop is an Acer Aspire 5250. When I try to print from websites, I almost always lose my internet connection, and the document fails to print. The printer and computer are on separate IP addresses. The printer will usually print basic Word documents (although not always). The problem mainly occurs with web-based printing. We have tried all the suggestions from the HP help site (reinstalling the printer, mainly). Are there new drivers that I need to download? This is driving me absolutely crazy, and is making it very hard to get any word done :P I'll take any suggestions you can offer!
Try hard-wiring your laptop to the router with an ethernet cable as a test and then try printing, if you do not loose connection to the internet then the problem is probably that the printing is hogging your wireless bandwidth.
If the same thing happens with loosing connection to the internet try connecting to the internet real quick through another computer that is hardwired, you want to find out if the problem is a wireless one or that affects wired computers also. You might need a driver upgrade, you also might need to upgrade the firmware of the router

If you printer does not have a built-in network card then for the laptop and computer to print via wireless to this printer either then, the printer needs to be connected to a print server or setup as a shared printer. A shared printer is the cheapest and easiest option. Please click on this link and follow my instructions to setup a shared printer :-
