My Hp Photosmart C5820 all in one printer is connected to my HP Pavilion dv6000 laptop (Windows XP). How do I share this printer wirelessly with my new Dell laptop (Windows 7)?


Any printer that isconnected to a computer and is connected on a LAN can be configured so allother computers on the same network can print to this printer. This means thecomputer with the printer attached to it MUST be booted up at all times whenother computers want to access the printer. You need to install theprinter driver on the computer and configure it as a Shared printer. The other computers on thenetwork need to add this printer to their computer. Follow these steps toset-up a shared network printer :- 1. Connect the printer tothe computer and install the printer driver. 2. Open Printers and Faxes- right click on this printer and click Sharing - click Sharing tab and click Share this printer, and then if you wish you could change theShare name, then click OK 3. Right click on theprinter - click Properties - click Print Test Page to confirm printerinstallation.
Follow these steps toconfigure the computers on your network :- 1. Open Printers and Faxes- click Add a printer - Next - select a network printer, or a printer attached to another computer - Next. 2. Select Browser for aprinter - Next 3. Click on and expand theMicrosoft Windows Network down to the computer with the printer - Next 4. Select Yes for - Usethis printer as the default printer - Next - Finish 5. Right click on theprinter - click Properties - click Print Test Page to confirm printerinstallation. b>

How do you set up a printer on the router?


Plug your printer in to the router as it were a computer, using Cat 5 ethernet cable. Do not plug into the "uplink" port. If you don't have a Cat 5 ethernet cable, you can purchase the same at any office supply place, computer place or even K-mart.

I am presuming you have a printer with an ethernet port, correct? (Looks like a big telephone jack) Cat 5 uses a plug called an RJ-45 - a telephone uses a RJ-11 and they are not - not interchangable.

I am also presuming you have at least XP or better or the parallel Mac OS.

You may want to get the evaluation version of Network Magic to help you manage your network. While they disavow support for network printers, there are many things you can do with your printer using NM. Google it - free download - free eval period. If you like the full features of NM, pay the $. I did and I have never regretted it. BTW, I am not a Cisco employee (maker of LinkSys and Network Magic. NM works with all brands of router.

I hope you found value in my response and I hope it helps you get your network rolling.

Positive comments always welcome.

Can not print through my printer


Your printer has to be a network printer first of all. You cannot print through access to the computer it is hooked up to. If it truly is a network computer then you can get the WEP or WPA key by accessing the router via a computer that can go online. Google the IP address for the model number and make sure you also google the default username and password. If you cannot get into the router because someone set a new user and password then reset the router by pushing the reset button on the router. You can then go into your router and access the passcodes and info in "Wireless Security". It will list your net name and passphrase if using a WPA or a WEP key if using a 128 or 64 bit encoding. Use the highest encrytion you can. If your using XP you will have to use a WEP key (don't argue this you other experts) as XP is not really happy with WPA. Vista, although it sucks is good at networking and can use the higher WPA encryption choices. Vista is based on NT which was built to network well so it can do amazing things when trying to network it is just the rest of the program that sucks. Be Well

Can't connect 2 pc to 1 printer


Steps to fix your issue
  1. install printer driver on one computer
  2. Make sure both computers are connected in same network by ethernet cable or wireless connection.
  3. share the printer on 1st computer
  4. access the shared printer from 2nd computer through network
This way your can access one printer from 2 computers. This setup work only when the 1st computer is turned on because HP leaser jet don't have the capability to work as network printer as they cannot acquire IP address.
