Question about Gateway MX8711 Notebook
Hello, do you use any antivirus program or firewall program? if so try to close them and try the printing. if that works you need to allow some ports in your firewalls.
you can also try to go start->run and write "cmd" hit enter
then write in the black command prompt ipconfig. look for you ip adress should be like 192.168.x.x check both computers IP.
try to ping the other: write in the command prompt "ping 192.168.x.x" and see if the other computer answers. get back to me and explain your network little bit more. have your printer ever worked?

If you can't connect to your wireless printer, you may have the wrong driver installed. Printer drivers are updated when new versions of operating systems are released, or when security updates are necessary. If you're trying to connect a new wireless printer, check the manufacturer's website to find out if a new driver has been released for your model number and operating system.
Download the latest print driver to your desktop. Print drivers allow the computer and printer to communicate, so the wrong driver will make connectivity impossible.
Go to "All Programs" in the Start menu. Find your wireless printer and right-click to select "Uninstall." The driver will be uninstalled. Close out the programs window.
Double-click the new driver on your desktop to unzip and install it. This should take only a second, and you may not see any dialog box or pop-up menu.
Open a document and choose "File" and "Print." The print dialog box will open.
Click "Add a printer." The add printer wizard will begin. Browse to the driver you just installed and select it when prompted.
Print the document you opened. It should print to the wireless printer. You can click the "Make default printer" box before you print if you want.
Install the driver in the same manner on all the other network computers. You can copy the driver onto a flash drive and copy it from computer to computer to avoid downloading it multiple times.
Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.
