I have cannon D1150, my laptop need connect to the printer through wireless router. What is the procedure?


It's easiest if you can physically connect the printer to the router with an ethernet cable, then add a printer to the laptop, Network, locate and install.

But if it isn't near the router, you need to use the options on the printer settings to connect wirelessly to the right router, then add the network printer. Running the software on the laptop should work and is probably the preferred method so all required drivers and software is available, once the printer is on the router.

You have to make sure the following are used on your wireless settings on your router -


Wireless Network Security SSID (32 chr), WEP 64/128bit, WPA-PSK (TKIP/AES), WPA2-PSK (AES)


This means your SSID is less than 32 chars and your running either WEP, WPA. Or WPA2


Then on your printer make sure you have the wireless enabled and Just a good rule of thumb - When putting in a wireless printer just fudge with the wirless/TCP/IP settings on the printer until you can ping the printer from the PC. Do NOT bother running the software installs until you know you have a good ping from the printer as it will just bomb out.


do rate the solution plz

If it is windows Vista, then in the bottom right hand corner you will find 2 computer monitor icon. Use that icon to connect to the wireless network.
If it is Windows 98/ME/2000 then use the adapter utility to connect to the wireless network.

Check the wireless settings of the router first . Make sure that yopu have all the wireless settings of the router. If you are not sure about the settings, then open the router set up and check the settings.

Network problem with Aficio 1515f


Sounds like you have a wireless router, but are (for some reason) plugging your laptop into it, and if it's not wireless, you should return it and get a wireless one for about the same money, that will let you use your laptop from anywhere, and the setup is often easier, as it can usually all be done via the Installation CD. You can also still plug the Aficio 1515 into the router and print wirelessly to it from your laptop, once you have it configured.
Next, the Aficio 1515 printer feature included a standard usb port, so I find this a little strange.
You can download the manuals here:

http://www.ricoh-usa.com/downloads/manuals/bw/aficio1515/

The 'network settings' guide will be most helpful. The two things you primarily need to be concerned with are the "IP address", and "subnet mask". Do not use "Auto", but rather set them manually, and then configure the printer driver
If you don't have a basic understanding of IP addresses, and network printing, then you'll really need some help to complete the setup

I have just lost my connection with my wireless. Tells me it has been disconnected however I am able to pick it up with my other laptop?


Delete the wireless profile out of your computer. Click on the wireless icon in the lower right hand corner of the screen. Right click and choose View Available wireless networks. Click change the order of preferred networks. In the preferred networks area click on the wireless network and click remove. Now reboot the computer or disable wireless and enable wireless. Once that is complete try and connect to your network. If this doesnt work try moving closer to the wireless router to see if that solves the issues. If you are using a third party software to connect to the wireless AP. Make sure you have the Use Windows to configure my wireless network settings unchecked in the Wireless network connection Properties window I had you open earlier to delete the profile in. If you are using a third party software like cisco, I would suggest using Windows to manage your connects.

Thanks,

Laptop not seeing my wireless router


Try to manually "Add device to network" by using the wireless setup wizard. Check to see if the Wireless Zero Configuration service is "Running" before trying to add device. Yuo may also want to disable IPv6 in vista tcp/ip properties page.

Samsung 3160fn network question


You have to have the software set up on the laptop to be able to print from it. Also when you install the software make sure the laptop is hardwired to the router. I have found that if I try to set it wirelessly it won't work. I set it up hardwired to the router then it found it wirelessly. So make it short. Set up the printer on your laptop as though the laptop is actually a desktop. Then it will be able to find the printer wirelessly.

Also make sure that when you check the Network settings on the printer you have the same TCP/IP address for the printer in the PC and Laptops. I posted a long explanation on another post in this forum. You can take a look and find as a solution to someones network problem. The way I do it is to set up the router on the computer first. Hook up the internet to the router. Then set up all the other PCs on the router. Then hook up the printer to the router and turn it on. Then run the installation software for the Samsung and make sure you tell it the printer is set up on a network. See if the software can automatically detect the printer (it should). Pick your printer from the list of found devices and install it. It should work fine then. Also make sure that the Windows firewall is turned off when you do that or have it set to allow local network traffic. Good luck.
