Hey,

its a pretty complicated process, I'm sure one of our experts could guide you on a live chat session.

but basicly, you need to connect the laptop to the same network as the others are connected to, have a look at the settings from the computer that is already connected to the wireless network and then use the same settings on the laptop, network name etc.


The printer.. it debends.

I'm sure one of our experts can assist you in more detail in a live chat session.

You can also contact geeksquad maybe they could come over and set it up for you.

Thanks,
Ekse

How to connect hp pavilion to brother mfc9560cdw without router


This model Bother printer has a 10baseT LAN connection and can be connected to your LAN network and to your HP laptop via the wireless router. Connect a LAN cable from the printer to the wireless router.
To print from your HP laptop, check the IP address range your wireless router issues to your wireless network, it maybe 192.168.1.*** then configure the brother printer with a fixed IP address with the same IP address range but higher address eg. 192.168.1.10 so it does not clash with any other IP addresses.
Next install the Brother printer driver normally.
Then configure the Brother printer Properties.
Click Start - Printers and faxes - right click on the Brother printer - click Properties - Port tab - click Add Port - Standard TCP/IP port -
Port Name eg. 192.168.1.10
Printer name eg Brother
Click OK
Then do a TEST print if it does not work then the IP address is probably incorrect.

I have a T-41 IBM Thinkpad trying to install a wireless printer. The laptop cannot find the Brother wireless printer!


Sometimes during the installation of some wireless products, especially printers, you will have to configure the connection by first connecting the printer via USB, then after removing the USB the wireless will be allowed to be found...

I have a laptop which is hooked up to a wireless router (Belkin) and NOBODY can get my wireless kodak printer to work on this system including the tech who came out from the cable co.


How is this printer connected to your PC? If it's connected wirelessly, I would suggest connecting it through a wired connection (if is has Ethernet capability) and trying to install it again. Even if you need to relocate it near your router it may very well fix your problem. Most wireless printers have annoyingly poor wireless cards in them, resulting in problems. you would then install it as a network printer and you can access it from any PC's in range of the router.
If this not have an ethernet port, then I would try connecting it directly to a desktop PC (via USB), and you could share it with other network users. In my experience this works very reliably, with only one caveat: for print jobs to go through the connected computer has to be on.

Wifi laptop will not print to printer - not a wifi printer


Check if the printer has a wireless option. Actually this issue is complex. First thing first, you can print wirelessly from your laptop within the WIFI range in a case that your printer do have wireless on in. It is impossible to print wirelessly from the wired printer through LAN.

One thing, I guess you don't have a wireless router. You need to have a wireless router like LINKSYS that is easy to setup then try to connect wirelessly to the wired printer. There I am not too sure if your can do a printing option from your laptop wirelessly.

Lastly, check if you have a ROUTER and need to set it up on your laptop and on the network LAN. You may now have a NETWORK printer in this regards. Thank you.

How do I add a printer to my wireless network?


You would have to install a wireless print server, like a Netgear WGPS606... It has USB ports that you would connect your printer to... You could actually replace your current wireless router with this one or chain one with the other!! Or your other option would be to buy something like a TRENDnet TEW-P1UG wireless USB2.0 print server, with this you can make use of the router you have now... But either way they basically cost the same! Hope this helps!!

Printer connection on my Belkin G Plus Mimo


You have to make sure you go to Control Panel/Printers, right click on the printer in the list and click 'Properties' - go to the sharing tab, select 'Share this printer', give it a name, and click OK. Then go to Printers on each of the laptops, select 'Add a printer', then 'Network printer', then 'Browse for printers'. You should be able to see the printer. If all the computers use the same operating system, you're good, otherwise, when you first share the printer, you may want to install additional drivers from the cd to support the different operating systems - alternately, you'll have to install the drivers for the printer on each computer.

Please rate if this helps :)

Try resetting your IP address:
The laptop may be trying to use the IP address from the old router.

1) Click Start (assuming Windows 2000, XP, or Vista)
2) Click Run
3) Type in CMD
This will take you to a black command box
4) Type in: ipconfig/release
The chart should show your IP address as 0.0.0.0
Once this has happened, proceed to step 5
5) Type in: ipconfig/renew
You should now see a new IP address listed.

Also note that you need to set up your network key (assuming that you are using one) on both the router and laptop.
Make sure that your router is set up to perform as DHCP server.
