If your printer only has a usb cord than u will want to hook it up to one of your pc's and set it up as a shared network printer. If it has an ethernet port you can hook it up directly to a router or switch.

PS to set your printer as shared goto ControlPanel > Printers > Right click on your printer > Click Sharing... Set it up to have a name you'll reconize and you should be good togo.

    If your "printer router" will accept a usb connection from the printer, try it, you of course will then have to configure the router to share the printer as a network share. To access it from your pc's you would then have to have the drivers installed on each pc wanting to access the printer, then on your pc , goto nework places(xp) or Network and sharing Center(Vista) and add a new network location, type the address of the printer eg \\PrinterName\ or its ip address Assigned by the router.



    This can also be done from a PC instead of a router also , just hook up the printer to pc , Share it with the network, and add it as a network location from another pc, the address would be something like this \\MyDesktopPC\PrinterName , the downside to this method is the pc hosting the printer will have to be On to access the printer from another pc.



    If you still need help or have any questions regarding network setup , please dont hessitate to send me an email to atomiknoizedlr@hotmail.NOSPAM.com << just take out the NOSPAM and the extra .Period

Sounds like an IP address problem. Your IP address on both the NIC card (DFE 530) and the router have to be in the same address range. You can do this 2 ways. 1... Have your router hand out addresses automatically. Make sure DHCP is enabled and that you have at least one address available for it to give out. ie. 192.168.0.2 through 192.168.0.3. The first three number must be the same as the router. The other option is to manually set your IP address on your nic card to match the router. If the router is lets say 192.168.0.1 then you can assign 192.23.34.2 to your computer NIC. If you haven't been able to access your router then check your router manual to find out the default IP address and use the same number for your NIC changing only the last number. The largest number you can use is 255. Hope this helps.

Lost connectivity to network printer when switched to ATT u-Verse


Is the printer connected via wireless? When I recently connected up a new wireless printer to my UVerse network, the printer manual said that establishing the first connection works better via an Ethernet cable directly to the Uverse router. After the printer is set up once, then I could remove the ethernet cable and connect to the printer via wireless from all my computers.
For all wireless PCs that were previously connected via wireless to dsl, you need to create a new network connection for each one, then enter the key that is listed on the side of your Uverse router when prompted. Sometimes it takes a few minutes to establish the connection.
I am amazed that ATT was so unhelpful on these issues. I was one of their first Uverse customers in Texas, and several times over the last years, techs would visit my house to solve a problem or hook something up, explaining to me as he went. That their helpful attitude is deteriorating is a real shame.

Trying to connect desk top computer and lap top computer


There is only two ways to possibly connect both the desktop and the laptop in the network. That is to purchase a router so you can connect them both or a route with a wireless and then the laptop (Which most new ones have a wireless capability installed) can connect wireless from anywhere in the home. If you already have a Cable or DSL Modem it may have a wireless capability. Otherwise you would have to get a wireless modem. Hope this helps. Bud

Wireless connection problem


Hello:

Ok...I am a bit confused. You must have a modem to connect to the internet...whether you are broadband (cable/DSL/wireless), Dial-up or T-1 or higher (TSU/DSU).

This is how it should run once you are sure you have the modem...

Modem....to router...pc to router. If you have no router...then plug ethernet cable from your modem to your NIC card on PC.

You will have to make sure your network card is working (check for flashing green light and one solid green. Then you can goto COntrol panel and run the wizard to connect to the internet...it should work.

What kind of router do you have? Also, what is the model number of your modem?

Let me know if I can help further.

Good luck my friend.

Emachine model t3302 ethernet card


This is how the wireless world works. You buy a wireless router with a four port switch. Your DSL or cable connects to that. A cable called a Rj45 connects the DSL or cable to the back of the wireless router. You also buy a wireless network card for your PC. After running the software for the router & the wireless nic card including setting up a home network through windows your daughter will be able to connect that computer to your network from any room in the house. Below is a link to a wireless router:
http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/ProductDetail.jsp?ProductCode=10005578
You can connect up to four computers to the wirless router. A computer that does not connect to the router by a Rj45 must use a wireless network card. Linksys WMP54G Wireless-G PCI Adapter Retail: http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/ProductDetail.jsp?ProductCode=252286
As you will see there is a big differance between a NIC card & a wireless card.
