This type of printer that you have is not possible to connect to computers at the same time but there is a work around. it is called printer sharing. Your computer should be connected with each other or on the same network. you need to install the printer on the computer you wanted to be the server. after installing the printer. activate the printer sharing and then go to the computers you wanted the printer to be shared.

You can buy an A/B switch (mechanical), share the printer on your network (if you have a network) or buy a print server (also requires a network).

How do I connect my HP 8250 Wirelessly? I have a router and a Linksys wireless-B adapter.

Make sure your router is set to accept Wireless-B connections...most aren't. Log into your router and setup wireless, using an SSID and security. Then connect with your laptop and you're good to go.

We just hooked up new dell vostro 230 computers and the cord from my hp laserjet 2100tn does not have the right adapter, what do I do?? Thanks - Sher

You cna either hook the printer up to your home network, that's what the n at the end of the model number means, or you can purchase one of these Parallel Port to USB connectors

Those are unfortunatly your only options.

Can I make a "non-network"

With a USB print server like this one, you can hook your printer to one of the wired ports on your router and it can be accessed by any connected computer. (There are other sources and adapter styles; I just picked this one as a sample. I've installed several of these and it works well.)

You can also share a printer on the network by installing it on a computer as a network printer and enabling printer sharing on that computer. But then that computer will need to be left on all the time for others to access the printer, and if people frequently use the printer it will slow down the computer for whoever is using it.

Can I connect my Laserjet 5P to my new computer with windows 7?

Sure, it's one of the basic "industry standard" printers, and the driver is available within the operating system. However, to directly hook it up, your computer has to have a parallel printer interface.
If it doesn't have it, you can try a USB to Parallel adapter, but make sure that the adapter has Windows 7 drivers available.

Without an ethernet port, you can't connect to a router. However, adapters are available which can adapt usb to ethernet. Check your local computer store.

Power problem

According to the owners manual: The power connector is next to the USB connector in the back of the printer. You use the AC adaptor to hook up the printer to a wall outlet to give it power and then the USB Cable is hooked up to the computer so you can install the printer software to the computer so it recognizes the printer.

Hook Up possible for EPSON Stylus 880 to new computer w/USB ?

There is no conversion cable that you can use with parallel connector since USB transfers data in Serial mode and the parallel cable handles data in Parallel mode.
