Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
I have a new computer and an old printer. I need help connecting the printer to the new computer. The new computer is wireless, but the old computer was wired. I don't have my direction any longer and that's why I need help connecting the two.
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?

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.

We cannot connect the pro l7680 printer wirelessly. Connect the printer to the router via ethernet cable and connect the desktop to the router wirelessly.

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.

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'.
