You will have to either add the printer through the Add printer Wizard and do a search for a newtork printer

Your best bet would be to install the Software that came with your HP printer on your laptop...at some point you should be given options to find and connect to a network printer.

HP DESKJET D1360 HOW TO SET UP WIRELESSLY USING MAC


Are you trying to use MAC filtering. You would just need the MAC from the network setup screen and add it to your router/firewall.

If you are using a Mac (Apple) computer you would, providing you have a wireless adapter connected to Mac, just go into "System Preferences" and use the wizard under "Print & Scan". Make sure the networking on the printer is in on the same as your Mac.

Can i connect Hp F380 all in one printer to Linksys wrt54g, and i am using macbook, help


From looking at the printer information and the router information, you will probably need additional equipment to make this work.
The printer connects to computers using a USB cable. It does not have a network connection, either wired or wireless built in.
That means you need a print server to connect your printer to the network. Some routers have a print server built in, but the WRT54G isn't one of them.
The print server will have some USB ports to connect the printer to, and connect to the router with a cable, or wirelessly.
HP shows this option: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01428401&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&site=null&key=null&product=1128296
If you can find that one, it might work the best. Many print servers have a hard time with all-in-one devices. They are usually able to print just fine, but scanning is troublesome. Make sure to review information about any print server you get, or router with built in print server to make sure it does everything you need.
Considering the price of a print server, it might be a better option to get a new printer that has built in network support. They are more likely to work easily and well. But watch carefully to make sure it can do everything you need (print, scan etc) over the network.

How can I connect my printer to my wireless network


If you have a wireless-enabled printer, you can use the printer's configuration to connect it to the router. If you have a wired connection printer (ethernet port) connect it to one of the ports on the back of the router with an Ethernet cable and the printer should sort itself out. If your printer is not network-enabled, you will need to connect it directly to a network-connected computer, then use Windows' sharing settings to share the printer to the network.
Hope this helps, Alistair

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 :-

Computer sees belkin 54g, shows all bars, when


Make sure that your router is set for an "encryption system" that is similar to all your computers and mobile devices. Example, if your router is set to encrypt using WAP2, make sure all your devices connect and is capable to connect using WAP2. Or else, set it to WAP and set your devices to WAP also.

Connection problem


The first thing to check is that both of your computers are assigned to the same workgroup name. Right click 'my computer' and select properties. Change the workgroup name so that they are identical on both machines. You will need to reboot if you change the name one one or both of the machines.

Wireless printing


Check the printer's manual if the software of this printer already supports winVista. If it is, you may connect the printer directly to the PC and check if you'll be able to print.

Hope this helps!
