Compuiter keeps disapearing from my computer

I work in an office with several people. We all have laptops and a wireless environment where we share a printer. What would cause my co-workers printer to be erased off his laptop when no one else in the office does? This has happenened several Mondays in a row. Other that it being deleted from his computer -is there a way that someone could cause this to happen as a joke?

Wireless... this could be because the PC is "turning off" the Wifi devices, check for this on the WIFI card properties..

Make my Lexmark x5340 be wireless'

Is this a wireless printer? Is it being used for a large office or a small home type office? If you are using it for a home office and have multiple pcs, then you can setup a homegroup. A homegroup is like building your own personal small network. You will be able to share and print documents between your computers. Once you setup the homegroup, on one computer, then you will have to add the other computers to the group using the access code that the first computer will provide. Be sure to enable printer and file sharing when setting-up the homegroup. Once setup, you will be able to print your documents from any connected printer on your network. It's not wireless but it might help to solve a print sharing problem. Good luck. How To Set Up Homegroup Sharing Plus Printer Sharing

Yes you need to setup the printer as a shared printer using the printer driver CD.
Your shared printer and computer would need to be on your LAN and connected to a wireless router. The laptop will connect to the shares printer via the wireless router and LAN cable to the computer with the shared printer.
Please click on this link and follow my instructions to setup the shared printer.

On the system where your printer is installed, if you are using a windows operating system, click on START then PRINTER AND FAXES. Windows will open windowed environment for you, here you will see your installed printer. Right-click on it and select SHARING. Follow instruction and share your printer. However, if the printer has been installed, but it do not print on the installed system, please right-click on the printer's name and select MAKE DIFAULT. Goodluck.

J4680 won't print from laptop, laptop sees 4680 and it gives me an error

WEll, you are short of information but I'll take a stab:
the printer needs to be connected to your router, then you need to use the INSTALL program and NOT plug and play or Windows install printer, to have the printer work wirelessly, on each system.

Remove sharing from host computer, which is likely usb wired to the printer.

I can't get it to print wirelessly with my airport express. What do I do? Does Canon Smartbase mp360 not print wirelessly?

You have to setup this printer as a Network printer, the PC using it, must Browse for the PC on the network. Setting up a wireless printer is not a complicated matter to accomplish. It can take as short as five steps to get the whole thing done.
Step #1: The Location of the Wireless Printer.
Since more than one computer would be making use of the wireless printer. It makes sense to figure out the best place to put it. The wireless printer should be set up at a place at home or in the office that is accessible to everyone and where there is ample space for paper, printer ink and other such paraphernalia.
Step #2: Bluetooth or Wi-Fi?
There are two connectivity choices when it comes to setting up a wireless printer, and these two choices are none other than Bluetooth or Wi-Fi. Most new computers and printers nowadays are equipped with either Bluetooth or Wi-Fi capacities, but if not, it is easy to get a wireless card that can be plugged using a USB port. The only difference is that Bluetooth printers has a smaller range than Wi-Fi.
Step #3: Enable Printer Sharing
The server computer’s operating system must be informed that the printer that will be added to its network is a wireless printer. In Windows Vista, this is done by accessing the network settings in the Control Panel and then activating file and printer sharing in the local area network settings.
Step #4: Share the Printer.
The other computers on the network must also be set up for using the wireless printer. To do this in Windows Vista, open the Control Panel in the classic view and then open Printers. Right click on the printer that is going to be shared, and then open Properties. In Properties, check the box that allows the printer to be a shared device.
Step #5: Continuous Troubleshooting
Wireless networks are prone to interruptions, and so it is important for whoever it is that is maintaining the wireless network at home or at the office to keep the connections to the wireless printer active. Nothing is more irritating that setting up a wireless printer and then encountering numerous glitches afterwards.

How do i connect the mx700 to a second computer through router

Hi there
Install "File and Print Sharing" on the computer with the printer.
This will allow the printer to be shared across the network.
However, the computer with the printer will have to be on in order for wireless clients to print through the router. It's not the most flexible solution, but it will work with existing equipment.
1. Click on "Start -> Control Panel -> Printers and Faxes."
2. Select the printer to be shared and right-click on it.
3. Select "Sharing."
4. Put a check mark in the "Share This Printer" option and give it a descriptive share name.
5. Click "OK."
6. Click on "Start -> Control Panel -> Printers and Faxes" on the computer that needs print access through the wireless router.
7. Select "Add a Printer," then hit the "Next" button.
8. Choose "A Network Printer" and hit the "Next" button again.
9. Click "Browse for a Printer," then "Next."
10. Find the printer you want to print to, then click "Next."
11. Follow the instructions on the screen to finish setting up the printer.

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

I've aquired a Hp office jet 6200 series all-in-one.I have a Dell Inspiron2200 laptop.Ihave wireless internet access on my laptop.Is it possible to download from the internet what I need to know and do so...

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.

Sharing cannon printer MP170

If you want to make your printer a Stand-alone device (no need to be connected to a computer, just directly to the router) you may want to look at getting a Print-Server.

But if you just want to share the printers, you will have to install the printer separately on both computers (since they use 2 diff drivers for the printer), then share it on the vista computer. at this point you should now be able to print on both machines

Printer will not network

Hi Stukie, Something you can try. Install the downloaded "newest" driver in all you PCs and laptops even if they cannot see or share with the PC print server. If you can successfully install on each PC, then you try changing the port setting of the printer on each PC. Go to Start, Printers and Faxes, Right click on the HP LaserJet 1000 (assuming you were able to install on every PC), click on Properties, click on Ports Tab, Click on Add Port, Double click Standard TCP/IP Port. A new window will pop up > Add Standard TCP/IP Printer Port Wizard, in the IP Address, type in the IP add of the PC where the printer is installed, Port Name can be any name but try the Shared Name of the Printer, Next and follow all other instructions. Hope this works for you and pls post again how things turn up. Kind regards.
