Question about HP Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

Using multiple HP printer models with same Windows XP laptop

I have an HP PSC 2510 configured for wireless operation on my home network (802.11b). I use the software supplied with the PSC 2510 (HP Director, etc.) to access the PSC 2510. Can I use other HP PSC series printers, or other series printers on the same laptop? Specifically, I would like to be able to use an HP PSC 1510 on this same laptop, and be able to select either the PSC 2510 or the PSC 1510 as the default printer. The PSC 2510 would be accessed over the WLAN, and the PSC 1510 would be accessed via USB connection to the laptop. Is there a single PSC software that will support both? I tried loading the software for the 1510 and it wouldn't load unless I removed the software for the 2510.

    Sandmanmac,

    Thanks for your suggestion. Actually the PSC 2510 is wireless capable and the PSC 1510 is only USB capable. Problem is, the HP software for either one cannot be installed without removing the other one first. So its an issue of the software for controlling the printers.

    Thanks much for taking the time to assist.

    Sandmanmac,

    That's an approach that I hadn't considered. Thanks for adding perspective to 'wireless printing'.

I doubt there is a universal driver , however you could connect directly to your pc or via a router and share it over your home /business network, and access it them that way

    What I'm saying is that you could connect, and install the drivers for any, and all printers you have in your home on your desktop PC (assuming you are using one). You must have several usb ports, and you can share them over your network, and print to any/all of them wirelessly from any computer that is connected to your network....A wireless printer is not necessary to print wirelessly, over a wireless network. Hope this clarifies.

I am trying to access an HP 1200 psc over a home network


Have you set up the printer to be shared via the network? You can usually set this up in printer options, through control panel. If the wifi is a closed network, so much the better. That way, nobody else can use the printer. You should be able to do this easily, as long as both computers are connected to the wireless network.

Recently my Wireless configuration changed on my HP psc 2500 series printer. For example, when I run the configuration page I notice that the "Encryption" has changed from 128-bit WEP to 64-bit WEP etc....


Hi,
Perform the steps below:

1. Press the Setup button on the front panel of the All-in-One.
2. Press 6 to enter into Network settings.
3. Press 3 to Restore Wireless Defaults.

Now, check the functionality. If the issue persists, we can install network diagnostic utility:

Printer won't work on wireless home network after being installed on laptop. We have installed it on two different laptops and selected it and it still won't print from either????? Any ideas would be...


Usually this is a networking and firewall problem. Is the computer that is physically connected to the printer set to allow sharing the printer? Have you set the name of the printer to be exactly the same on all three computers? If you are using a better firewall than the basic one in Windows XP, have you set that to accept network traffic from the other computers in your home network? (This has to be done on all of the computers on the network so that they are in the same Workgroup.) Check that you allow bidirectional network traffic.

Hp 2510 wireless printer function is disabled. I


Yes there is a hp psc 2510 photosmart all-in-one.
I have had one for years--although it is not functioning properly now.
In answer to your question, though, go to the hp.com website and to america then to support/driver site. enter hp psc 2510 photosmart all-in-one in the search section and go to downloads. download the entire software. this takes a lot of time--even more if you do not have dsl.
follow the instructions. also, download the manual if you do not have one.

Can't find printer on network


1.How are you attaching to the network printer from your daughters computer? IP address, or by the name of the printer...Also make sure you check you are attaching to the network printer, and not local printer.

2. Install the Microsoft TCP/IP version 6 protocol on both computers by clicking install on your LAN properties, then restart PC. This should work!

Samsung ML-2510 doesn't respond....


I solved this problem with windows xp but have yet to solve it with windows 7. what worked for me is hooking up the hp print server to my network switch and to the 2510. Then I installed the 2510 driver using the samsung exe and choosing NO when it asked about installing the driver without the the printer attached. The NO choice continues and installs the driver. Then run the HP printer wizard choose drivers on this computer when you get to that spot. Then choose the 2510 driver and finish up. You may now have 2 2510 installations and may need to delete the default one under printers and set the other as default. This worked on 3 different xp machines for me

About wi-fi


Windows XP has a built in wifi configuration tool, previous versions of windows dont have this feature. But if you were to buy a wireless card it comes with software for wireless to work on all versions of windows from 98 - XP most if not all new laptops have wifi built in & that will be able to share your broadband connection through the netgear router. You can configure the laptop & pc to share files & printer between each other, easy way of doing that is by using the wireless network setup wizard which can be found in Start -> All Prograns -> Accessories -> Communications -> Wireless Network Setup Wizard.
