Question about Cisco Photosmart C4780 Wireless AllInOne Printer With Linksys By Cisco WirelessN Broadband Router

HP Photosmart C4780 and Acer Aspire fight over web-based printing!

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

SOURCE: My wife has a laptop

Normal 0 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 :-

Cannot connect my laptop to wireless


Your wireless printer might frequently lose its communication with the computer and hence might not print all the documents when you want. Such an issue arises when there is interference in the wireless signals between the printer and the computer. This could be caused by any other wireless device kept in the vicinity of your printer like a cordless phone. Keep all other wireless devices way from the printer set-up to tackle this issue. Also bear in mind that if your system is turned on for hibernation mode then it would disconnect your printer the moment it goes into hibernation. get more help http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Printer-All-in-One-Install-and/HP-Photosmart-C4780-Wireless-Printing/m-p/320321#M19172
