There are two types of slots USB and Parallel ports. You probably have a USB, it should be a small rectangular head, with no holes or pins. You will find a matching slot on the side of the laptop. But that's not the last step as you have to run the disc that came with the printer to install it on the laptop. You will not be able to use the printer until that is done, unless it was added at an earlier date. If you have any questions let me know.

Yes you need to setup the printer as a shared printer using the printer driver CD.
Your shared printer and computer would need to be on your LAN and connected to a wireless router. The laptop will connect to the shares printer via the wireless router and LAN cable to the computer with the shared printer.
Please click on this link and follow my instructions to setup the shared printer.

Just installed a TP-Link TL-WR940N router. IBM and Dell laptops connect fine. My son's Toshiba Satillite will not?

check to see if you inserted router name and WEP password correctly in your son's computer. I'm thinking you were tired when you got to your son's puter.

Hi Ed,

HP Printer/Vista conflicts are legendary. Epics will be written about them. :) It's highly likely that an HP Update fouled Vista, or a Vista Update fouled HP.

The surest way to get your printer back is:

1. Go to HP Support and download the Full Software for your model printer and save it to the desktop.
2. Uninstall every HP application in the Control Panel that came with the printer, starting with the main printer software itself.
3. Hold down the Wndows Logo button on your keyboard and press the R key. A command window will open. Type in %TEMP% and hit the enter key. Your Temp File folder will appear. Delete EVERYTHING in the Temp Folder that Vista will let you delete.
4. Reboot your computer.
5. Double click on the HP Software install .exe file you downloaded to your desktop. Install the printer again as if it was the first time.

You should be good to go.

Be well.

Look on the case for an ON/OFF switch, and be sure that it is ON.

Look for a special label on one of the Fnn keys;
it should look like a radio-tower.
Press the BLUE-coloured 'FN' key, and press that "radio-tower" key, to enable the wireless adapter.

Then, "View Available Networks".

On trying to conect my son's tower to the internet, all I get is ''little or no connectivity'' what does this mean and how can I fix it?

This usually means you are to far away from your wireless router for the computers adapter to work. Things you can try:

reposition your router. Is there metal or concrete between it and the computer?

avoid having other 2.4 Ghz wireless items nearby. I have seen a X10 camera block a laptop from getting a connection.

replace the adapter on the tower with a usb type with a cord. This allows you to place the adapter in a better position to receive.

switch to a hardwired connection (cat5 cable) or change your wireless hardware to type N.

Connecting 2nd computer to router via wireless

first, your router wont look for your laptop. your laptop has to find your router. make sure your wireless card is activated on your laptop. right click on the icon where it says network cable unplugged. it should then say "view available networks". click on that and look for your network. if you need further guidance, write me back and tell me what brand of laptop you have. also, for the second tower, if you are trying to go wireless with it, then you need a wireless adapter.

Usb wireless adapter for Compaq Presario 5000

Most netgear adapters will work.
They're around £20 and will connect to pretty much everything =)
They work on windows, from 98 i think. So aslong as the old tower has a sort-of up to date OS then it'll connect for you :)

Hope it helps.
