If you're using "XP" these are the steps to get you started, if it's Vista, it should be similar, but I'm not familiar enough to know exactly:
To setup network:
Open "control panel"
Select network setup wizard"
"welcome screen" opens, select "next"
Make sure other PC is on and Click "next" again
Select "this computer connects to the internet through a residential gateway....." click "next"
Type in "description" and "name' (it's up to you) click 'next"
Type a workgroup name or use default "MSHOME"...NOTE: this needs to be THE SAME on the other PC when you perform these settings there.
on the next screen, slect "turn on file and printer sharing", click "next", click "next. select "just finish the wizard..."
Restart the computer, then do this on the other PC


Printer sharing:
connect the printer to one of the PC's and install driver if it's not already, during the install you will be prompted whether to "share" or not slect "share and name it.
NOW.....to connect form the other PC.....go to "printer/faxes", "add printer", click 'next" select "a network printer...." click 'next"
select "browse for printer"
in the larger box it may just show the printer, or you may see "Microsoft windows network", if so click on it, then select your network (IE: MSHOME") and now you should see the printer. Double click it, and that should do it.

I hope this does it for you, if so, please, please rate my solution :)

My printer keeps going offline. What can I do to get it back online?


I understand your Printer is offline on your Windows 8 computer.
The easiest thing to do is just rebooted everything. Turn off router, computer and printer.
Wait a few minutes and turn on router, computer and printer.
Before trying to print make sure there is nothing waiting to be printed. Right click on your printer and see whats printing. Remove if anything there. Try to print again.
If the printer still showing offline try installing and running HP Print and Scan Doctor.
Download and install at this location.

HP Photosmart C4780 and Acer Aspire fight over web-based printing!


Try hard-wiring your laptop to the router with an ethernet cable as a test and then try printing, if you do not loose connection to the internet then the problem is probably that the printing is hogging your wireless bandwidth.
If the same thing happens with loosing connection to the internet try connecting to the internet real quick through another computer that is hardwired, you want to find out if the problem is a wireless one or that affects wired computers also. You might need a driver upgrade, you also might need to upgrade the firmware of the router

To install a HP printer (with built-in Jetdirect print server) as a network printer you need to do the following -
1. Open the printer’s menu and enable the Network Card – then configure the IP address of the network card so it matches the IP range of your network. Eg. If your IP's are 192.168.0.xxx then set the network card to a high number say 100 then set the Subnet Mask IP address to 255.255.255.0

If you have a wireless router then check the IP addresses that the router issues to the computers on your network and configure the IP address in the printer accordingly.
2. Install the HP printer driver on your computer/s using the LPT printer port.
3. Connect the printer with a LAN cable to the network hub/router.
4. Click on Printers and Faxes - right click on the HP printer and click on Properties.
5. Click on Ports and click on Add Port.
6. In available ports - click on Standard TCP/IP Port and then Configure port.
7. Tick the IP box and type in the IP address of the HP's printer IP address.
8. Click OK and tick Enable bi-directional support and then OK

Install the HP printer driver on every computer on your network and configure the printer’s TCP/IP port as previously detailed.

Do a test print page to check the printer.
You can now print from any computer on your network.

HP C4580 won't go online


Thank you Nadine,

yes - the plot is thickening now!

To your problem:
The printer itself will never go online. If you want to print something from the internet (a web page i.e.), your computer is establishing that connection via a web browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, etc.), like the page you see right now.
If you want to print something, you have to choose the "Print" command form the "File" menu in your application or hit the "Ctrl" key and "P" at the same time.

In the upcoming dialog you can choose your printer and the printing preferences. Try it right now and print this page. (Make sure you select "1 to 1" in the "Print Range" options, otherwise you might end up with a lot of scratch paper...)

Did it work?

If so - any other questions?
If not, post a comment and tell me what happened.

HP C8180 has built in wireless adapter and Ethernet according the Website at HP.

If this is connecting to the network wirelessly, check to see that it is connected to the Network, is your router using secure passwords for a connection to the network,
Your printer will need these passwords just as your computers would
If you connect the printer with a Lan Cable, it will be more reliable, and shouldn’t need a password to be on the network. And makes life a little easier...

Your internet provider has nothing to do with your Printer not printing; this is an Internal Network Problem. The settings or your network has changed.

The Printer should have a static IP address
