What kind of printer is it? How did it hook up to the old one physically? Was it a usb cable or an ethernet cable like the computer?

SOURCE: Can't print wireless from new Vista Laptop to HP 6110 - Help

Windows Vista is a "MEAN" O/S. Not all of the bugs are fixed yet and still hard to find compatable hardware for it. Microsoft did Vista completely different than other O/S's, they released it to program developers to retrofit the printers and such only 1 month before it hit the shelves. With Windows XP and other predecessors, the released them 6 mos before it hit the shelves. I am more than positive Microsoft will get their act together soon, until then, there will be these problems. I have tried EVERYTHING I know to work around it and haven't found a solution. Any other Suggestions from the Techs on here will more than likely be a dead end also. If I am wrong, I stand corrected. Good Luck to you.

SOURCE: how to hook up this printer wireless to my main computer

Hi jjank740;

First off, did you try to recycle your printer? Turn it off and back on again. Sometimes power outages can disconnect that printer. If that doesn't work. Go to the printer and access the system network configuration on the led panel. Type in the WEP number and password again, and let it search for the connection. That should do it. Once it's connected you'll see the blue wireless indicator turn on.

Good Luck

Mark

Most likely you need to set a new IP address on the printer, because your new router likely has a different Ip address than your old one.

Can i connect new pc to old connection


You simply need to disconnect old computer from the network and connect the new one.
Are you trying to connect wired computer or wireless?

If you are trying to connect a wired computer then you don't need to do anything.
Just take out the Ethernet cable from the old computer and connect it to the new computer.

If you are connecting a wireless computer to the network then make sure that you have all the settings of your wireless router.
If your wireless network is secured then you should know the correct network key.
What is the operating system on your computer?

I will suggest you a website " The Router Setup " which may help you connect your new computer to the old wireless network.

Hi rich10is

WIRELESS PRINTING WITH WIRED EPSON ACULASER CX11NF PRINTER


Your printer is not a wireless printer but it is a network printer so it should be straightforward for you to create a wireless printer setup.


If your computer is a laptop, its wireless function would work seamlessly in a wireless printer environment. If your computer is a Desktop computer, all that would have been required would be (if you don't already have one) an inexpensive Wireless USB Adapter to plug into the back of the Desktop to transform your setup into a fully Wireless Network. You should connect your printer to your wireless router/modem with an Ethernet/CAT5E/RJ45 Cable. Then enter Network Places on your computer and add the printer to your wireless network using 'add a device'.

How do I connect my HP 8250 Wirelessly? I have a router and a Linksys wireless-B adapter.


Make sure your router is set to accept Wireless-B connections...most aren't. Log into your router and setup wireless, using an SSID and security. Then connect with your laptop and you're good to go.

The wireless card wont be locked to the bios. Swap it out and install the drivers once it is loaded. It will just see it as a new piece of hardware.If it doesnt work, take the new one out and put the old one back in, it wont destroy your computer.

Need to reinstall print 6988


If you're on XP, download HP Deskjet Basic Feature Software/Driver and then install this software.

Next, go to the "Printers and Faxes" part of the XP control panel and add the printer. Unless the printer has its own server (very unlikely for home use), then even if it is installed on a wired or wireless network, you need to add it as a local printer (again this should be done even if you have it connected to your local network), then add the printer. You may need to add a new port for the networked printer.

I hope this helps.
