No matter how you slice it, if you want to share the printer, you will be creating a network. If I remember this printer correctly, it has an Ethernet port to connect to a network or USB to connect ot a computer. If your router supports wired connections, you can connect it there and just inistall drivers on each device and selec tthe network option. If not, you will probably want to connect it via USB to your desktop machine and enable print sharing on that machine. Te enable printer sharing, open up the Network and Sharing Center. In the Sharing and Discovery section, turn on the option for Printer Sharing. You will still need to install the XP driver on the netbook and select the network option, but give it the proper network location (ie.\\mycomputer\this printer).

I have an HP 6200 pro desktop that I am having trouble finding the correct drivers for the 82579LM Gigabit network Ethernet connection. Can you Help?


what you need to know is what operating system does the hp 6200 pro desktop run on ?
from the specs on the hp 6200 pro desktop
it might be
Microsoft Windows 7 Professional 32-bit

Then download the correct driver for the operating system you are using
https://downloadcenter.intel.com/product/47549/Intel-82579-Gigabit-Ethernet-Controller
and then either run the download or point the update driver to the folder the driver is downloaded into .
Depends on the type of driver you download as to whether it installs itself or has to be added via updating the driver and pointing to its location after it copies its extracted files if it is compressed.

Printer HP Photosmart C5180 Series cannot be contacted over the network


Check with HP for a Windows 7 driver for the printer. HP Ink Jets require proper drivers to work correctly. Once you have downloaded and installed the drivers try connecting again.
If you have installed the drivers and Windows 7 still refuses to "talk" to the printer, you may have to adjust your advanced network settings as well. Open up the Network and Sharing center, click on advanced sharing settings and make sure file and printer sharing is turned on. Also check "File Sharing Connections" and enable file sharing for devices that use 40 or 56 bit encryption.
If that fails to work you may need to speak with HP support for further assistance.

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 the HP PSC 2410 printer be shared between 2 computers?


generally the printers with single USB port are dedicated for use with one computer.

However, depending on the way you connect the computers you can share the printer with more than one computer.
1. SET THE SECOND COMPUTER UP AS A NETWORK PRINTER

This is one of the most common ways to connect two home computers to the same printer. The advantage of this technique is that it doesn't cost you anything extra. You do require some computer literacy in networking though.

Firstly you physically connect the first computer to the printer via the provided cables. The second computer now needs to be set up as a network printer to have printing capabilities. The computer not physically hooked up sends a message via the network to the computer which is physically connected to print.

To set up the network connection in Windows follow these steps:

-Open the control panel

-Select the network or network and sharing icon

-You should see an icon named file and print sharing or simply print sharing. Turn on printer sharing if it is off.

(This requires your two computers to already share a network connection; otherwise you will have to set this up).

2. PURCHASE A PRINTER SWITCH

A simple old fashioned way to connect two computers to one printer is by hooking them up to one switchbox in the middle. This switch is what is connected to the printer. This is a similar method to using a router to distribute the Internet to more then one computer.

This method is good for people who aren't very computer literate when it comes to networking. All you have to do is plug the cables in and off you go. However, it has one large disadvantage which is that the computers and printer all have to be in close proximity for the cables to reach.
The printer server should support the printer so that you can get maximum functionality from the printer device (including the multifunction feature).

3. You can buy a printer server but for that you need to make sure the device fully supports the printer you have got including the multifunction features. Both computers will need to have network connection.

It looks like it isn't an hp wireless printer. You can connect to the printer via a usb cord and download the software from HP if you want to. Another way is have the printer connected to a wired computer via usb and share the printer and then with the other computer on you could print pages from the wireless laptop to the printer.

HP psc 1315 tries to downloads wrong drivers


HP has two sets of numbers for the printer.
1315 - This is your model number
1300 - This is your series number

The software, manuals, printer queue, etc. will all show the printer under your series number. This is because there are several models that have minor differences that are not related to the software so they will all share the same software. When you try to download the software for your OS you will use your model number and when it has downloaded during the install it will all show as the series number again. This is normal.
