Sounds like your printer isn't configured for "sharing." Go to Control panel > Network and Sharing Center > Choose homegroup and sharing options. Make sure Printer has a check mark.

If you have any other computers, check them to see if you can print from them.

Is there a way I can print wireless from my laptop through the desktop attached to the Canon Pixma MX310 printer?

The desktop and laptop both need to be attached to the same network.

On your desktop:
Go to Control Panel, Printers and Faxes
Right click on your printer, and click on "Sharing"
Share the printer on your network

On your laptop:
Go to Control Panel, Printers and Faxes
"Add Printer"
Choose a "Network attached Printer"
Browse for the printer, and add in.

I want to share an HP 7760 on an XP with Win 7

To get ahead of myself and answer your question first, your Win 7 machine may automatically load a driver for your shared printer.

Please have a look at the procedure below: (these instructions assume that your XP machine is sharing the HP printer and that your Win 7 laptop can "see" your network and the shared printer connected to your XP desktop computer)

On the Win7 machine, follow these steps:

1) In "Control Panel" click "Add local printer"
2) Create New Port > Local port
3) Port Name is "\\xpcomputername\printername" - without the quotes

(insert the XP's real network name and your printer's real name in the above location)

4) Click <OK>

5) Windows 7 should automatically load a driver allowing you to print on the HP connected to the XP from the Win7 laptop.

I hope this helps!

Have you made sure that the Printer is a shared resource.

Generally a printer will not be seen on a network if it is shared (allowed to be used by others).

From the computer (where the Printer is attached), locate the Printer by :

1. Click Start
2. Click Settings (or Control Panel)
3. Click Printers (or Printers and Faxes)
4. Highlight the printer you want to share.
5. Click File, Sharing (or Properties, and the Sharing tab).
6. Click to Share the printer.

The printer should now be available for you to see (from your laptop or anything connected to your network). The instructions above are for Windows XP (Vista).

I personally do not own Windows 7 and cannot provide you with exact steps for Windows 7.

However, SHARING is what you are looking for. If you can't achieve sharing the printer with the above steps, then use the HELP in Windows 7 to get the exact instructions.

If you need further assistance, let me know. Please rate. Regards,

I have one computer which operating system is windows vista home premium. Another PC with operating system Windows 7 Home premium and have set up to share one HP K80 Printer. Now problem I believe is the...

Instal only one printer driver on the PC it is physically connected to. Preferably the Windows 7 PC (Latest OS). Unshare the printer, remove drivers from other PC's., then reboot al PC,s and re-share the printer. The PC's sharing should allow the Windows 7 PC to use it's driver, although they may request a disc for basic information about the printer.

Network x86 driver support on Vista 64 bit OS (Samsung Ml-2510)

That's right. You'll have to install the XP driver on an XP PC, and share it to the other XP machines that way, or Install the driver on each PC individually -you can't share a Vista driver with XP PC's.

How do I add another computer to my printer? Does it matter that the computer it is currently attached to is an iMAC, but the laptop I want to add has the Vista operating system?

That depends on if the printer has its own IP or if it is connected to a PC and shared. If it is connected to a PC and shared, then no you can't connect them due to the difference in OS's (even if you are sharing from an XP machine you can't connect from a Vista believe it or not). If the printer can be put on a network (use a small office router) and then connect the printer either thru its own NIC or with the use of an external jet direct it would be the best alternative simply because the printer would be its own entity on the network and not need a master PC to operate.

Hope this helps.

Sharing srp350 network printer on win98 to winxp

You are correct with the conflict, although, it's a difference in drivers, i think what has happened is when you share a printer with xp, it installs the driver from the pc with the driver and printer attached, and as it is attached to a win98 pc, the full functions are probably unavailable,unlike an xp local driver.
