    Yes this is possible.
    What is the operating system?
    Are you using a router, how are the notebooks attached?

Only if it's wireless or it can be wired to the network, I have both kinds. My wireless has an ethernet card that connects to any computer in the house, just by running the software in all of the machines. If you have no wireless card you can still share the printer in by selecting shared in the properties menu of the printer, it will still need to be wired to one of the machines If it is not a wireless device.Another way is to connect it to a home network through the router, but it will still need to be connected to a Lan through the router and thus have an IP address has network printing capabilitys.

I have a wireless laptop running Win7 home. My husband has an older desktop running XP, my son has a custom PC running XP. I have done everything I can to try & get the laptop to print to our HP 5


This might be a simple case of the three machines each having a different "network" or "workgruop" assigned to it.

In Right-click Computer, Properties, check to see what workgroup these machines belong tol If they are all different, then simply change them to match each other, so they all use the same resources, and the same printers.You will then have to re-add the printers, having first dleted the printer, if it was on the wrong workgroup.

But, once they are all on the same workgroup,and compatibility has been restured, you whould have no trouble getting them to use the same printer.

Wirelessly connect to hp deskjet f380 printer


This model printer only has USB printer connection and it cannot be connected to a wireless network directly.
If you have a wireless router then you can connect a print server to this HP printer and then connect the print server to the wireless router. This will allow you to print wirelessly yo the HP printer when you configure the printer server and configure the printer driver in the computers to connect to the printer port IP address of the print server.

Can I connect my HP PSC1510 to my BT Homehub v1?


yes, you can. I have my printer connect to my hub and my desktop and I can print from my laptop wirelessly.
You will need your all in one connected via a printer or USB cable to a computer AND also connected to your hub. Then, go to the computer that is connected through a cable to the all in one. Your all in one should have some way to configure its IP address. I have my printer configured as 192.168.1.4 and it's plugged into the 4th port of my hub. Check if this works.

Printing Pdfs with graphics, pictures, text on MX 700 from Vista


The problem is with VISTA. & Printer Drivers. Say if it prints on the XP why don't you connect the printer to the XP machine and share it so the Vista machine uses that? may work great. have you got the most up to date version of your printer driver? if not get it from manufacturers web site, and install as administrator.

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.

Network Vista Wireless Laptop to XP Desktop & Print Documents


On the desktop machine - go to the printers folder, right click the icon for the Laserjet and choose sharing (enable print sharing). You should be able to name the printer and make it accessible to anyone within the workgroup. If needed you can run the network setup wizard to change the workgroup names on both machines.

On the laptop go to add new printer and choose network printer, you should be able to browse to the desktop machine by name and choose the Laserjet as a printer (whether you want it to be the default is up to you). The laptop will download and install the drivers from the desktop pc to the laptop and set the correct network path automatically.

It goes without saying that the desktop machine must be on in order to print from the laptop in this scenario.
