Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Compaq Presario 2232US. The printer on the Desk Top works. From the Desktop, I have 'shared' the printer. From the Laptop, (Compaq)under Control Panel, Printers, the printer Icon is there, however, I cannot print (via wireless) from the laptop. The printer icon shows there are jobs waiting and READY. The lapTop (via a router) can access the Internet Explore. My understanding is I should be able to print using the 'wireless conection' and need not set-up a Network Connection. True?

You'll have to share the printer from the PC it's already connected to. You'll have to install the printer drivers on all PC's that you want to use the printer with.

Wireless connection!


Yes. Keep it plugged in to your desktop.
Do you have your home network configured? That has to be done first, between your desktop and laptop, etc., then under the printer's properties select "sharing", and share the printer from your Desktop.
Then to access the printer on your laptop, go to "add printers" Select "network printer", then select "browse", then browse your network for the "shared printer", and select it.
You will only be able to print through it if your PC is turned on.

Connecting my laptop wirelessly to my desktop


You will need to first allow sharing of files and folders.

Then, in Windows Explorer, right click the directory of the files you want to share.

Then, on the computer that you want to access the shared files of the other computer, you will need to login to that computer by scrolling down to Computers near me and finding the computer you want to access. Login.

At least that how I do it.

Let me know if this works for you, or I will find a website to point you to.

New vista windows working with a wireless routerand a new laptop


Well if you want the prints to go through the router and into the printer First, set the printer up for sharing by going to printers and faxes right clicking on the printer choose Sharing Choose share this printer and give it a name, then might have to get a wireless usb for the desktop at a local Wal-mart and the laptop should have wireless, when you get that stuff connect to the wireless network, go to start, printers and faxes, in the left side toward the top you will see a link saying add printer, let the wizard start hit next, choose the bubble beside A network printer, then hit next choose browse for printer hit next it will say searching for printer wait till a list of printers come up and choose the one you want the computers to use.
