HOW DO I USE A WIRELESS PRINTER WITH NO ROUTER. I WANT TO PRINT FROM TWO COMPUTERS, THAT BOTH USE DIAL UP INTERNET


You can attach the printer directly through USB cable to your computer and print, or you can connect the printer and your computer to the same wireless network and then print using the wireless and your connection.
Internet is not necessary, only a communication path needs to be established. For this whether its your neighbor's wifi network, your own wifi network, a usb cable connection between your pc and printer etc printing will be accomplished.

yes vista, is non friendly as old oem hardware, so you must have a vista ompatible hardware. the bluetooth only works well bellow 5m radio, you can use a wireless router with usb port for printers, and your problem, is less confusing, but choose a good hardware, or else u giveup the printer.

Whant to print wireless with my Canon MP390 printer


Ho,

No this will not work as the printer has no way to install the dongle into it's operating system.

In order to make it wireless you will need either a wireless access point if the printer already has an ethernet port a wireless USB print server if not.

Look at model # PM111UW on www.startech.com for refernece.

Add a mouse


Yes.

Most wireless mice come with a small wireless USB dongle that you plug into a USB port.

If your laptop supports bluetooth, you can get a bluetooth mouse, and you wont need to plug anything into your USB port.

Have a look at the logitech nano mouse.

Not printing from my laptop


If you have inserted the USB cable into the slot on the front of the printer, it will not print from the computer. That slot is for direct printing from a digital camera. You need to insert the USB cable into the port on the back/side of the printer. The port is almost square in shape, and should receive the end of the USB cable that is square with two rounded corners. The other end of the USB cable, much more rectangular, goes into the USB slot on your computer.

Printer wont connect to Sony Ericsson mobile direct


Normal 0 Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and when the CD software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud
