Hi,

To do so, you will need a print-server to connect your printer with your router and share the printer locally.Otherwise try to share it as it is connected to your machine.Go in the PRINTER directory,right click on it,sharing then share this printer with a name.Both options work fine but in my opinion try the first one.

I purchased a SBG901 and have connected 2 MAC pc's wireless - 1 HP printer and 1 Compag laptop, I have one more pc which is running Vista on a HP Pavilion dv5 and visited the HP website to update


It might not be anything your doing wrong, the wireless portion of the card may have just gone bad. you could check this out by reconnecting your old router back up to verify it works or doesn't. If it doesn't work your wireless in your laptop went bad presuming that the wireless was not deactivated on the laptop. if it does work the Vista Driver may be incompatible with the new router, you may be able to hook up both routers at the same time which would allow you to keep using your HP system.

I cant plot from AutoCad 2006, using My hp


hmmm.. we only have two computers at my work connected to a router. the designjet has a network card going straight to it. i connect to the router wireless and it reads vista. my boss connects to the design jet thru the router as well with a network card rj cable with xp pro. as for our printer it can be connected via router and does work fine but my boss has it directely connected to his computer and i share it off of his system. then we also have a zerox machine connected via router as well. maybe your router is going out? try a new one or a better one and see if that fixes it. it maybe defected or time for a new one.......

if it was working before then maybe its the router.

How do I connect a Ricoh Aficio 350 directly to personal computer


I believe the copier only has a tcp/ip port for connection, so you will still need to run it through a router, or if the PC is not on the internet, you can connect the machine directly to the ethernet port on your pc using a 'crossover' cable
You will need to download the Vista driver from Ricoh Here:

Want to share 922all in one on xp desktop with laptop using Vista


I have a network running both an XP computer & a Vista computer. What I had to do after connecting them both to the router was make an internet connection with 1 computer, turn on the printer so everything the network was going to share was powered on; then run the network wizard on both computers. Once I did this the computer that the printer is not physically connected to installed the printer driver. Once this entire process was completed we had internet on both computers as well as both computers being able to send jobs to the same printer. Has worked great for over a year. Hope this helps you out.

You are using the wrong cable. Connect the printer to your router with an ETHERNET cable - not USB. Then then printer will have an IP address. Then it should be able to connect without the intermittent off and on that you have been experiencing.

HP Printer F4180 will not work on new Vista OS


You could try removing the DSL from the router and running the HP Installer again. Sometimes the filtering can interfere with the router's communication between the computer and the printer.

Otherwise, I would recommend getting one of their printers that has an ethernet port for wired connect (will scan this way; printers won't with USB connect to router) or a wireless 802.11 radio.
