    is the printer by any chance connected to the laptop?

    Is the printer connected to your laptop via a USB cable (and shared with other computers on your network), or is the printer connected directly to your network via an ethernet cable or wireless?

Hello, I have a brother MFC-490CW mult-function printer (wireless) and I am having trouble setting up the wireless feature so my laptop can print to it via through my home network (Linksys wireless...


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

My wife has a laptop and she connects to the internet via wireless router. She sometimes needs to print. We have a HP PhotoSmart P1100 that connects directly to my computer. We have lost our original...


Normal 0 If you printer does not have a built-in network card then for the laptop and computer to print via wireless to this printer either then, the printer needs to be connected to a print server or setup as a shared printer. A shared printer is the cheapest and easiest option. Please click on this link and follow my instructions to setup a shared printer :-

This printer model does not support wireless printing. If you have connected this printer via USB cable other computer, then we could share the printer to you laptop wireless;provided the other computer is in same wireless network.

Can I connect my HP PSC1510 to my BT Homehub v1?


yes, you can. I have my printer connect to my hub and my desktop and I can print from my laptop wirelessly.
You will need your all in one connected via a printer or USB cable to a computer AND also connected to your hub. Then, go to the computer that is connected through a cable to the all in one. Your all in one should have some way to configure its IP address. I have my printer configured as 192.168.1.4 and it's plugged into the 4th port of my hub. Check if this works.

Unable to setup wireless print server with wireless router


The issue was the wireless print server not properly connecting to my home network and thus being unable to see my modem/network. This was because my linksys wireless print server generates its wep key with a different algorithm than the Motorola surfboard SBG900, this also explains why when I was using my old linksys wireless g router, things worked without any issue (same wep key algorithm). Once I figured out how to manually configure the print servers wireless settings and manually enter the wep security settings I was able to connect to my network and the configuration found the print server and I was able to finish setup.
