My printer is not connecting wireless from my comp. I brought it over from my parents house to my new place and it wont work.


For installing a wireless printer on Windows XP, wireless router is an essential device.

Follow the recommended steps mentioned on the installation CD of the router, and set-up a wireless network.

Since several computers or laptops will access the printer, it is recommended to connect the wireless printer to the main computer through the USB port.

To begin the installation process on Windows XP, access the network setting in the Control Panel, and activate the file and printer sharing option in the LAN setting.

This will allow the operating system to recognize the availability of a wireless printer.

Now, click the Start button, go to Devices and Printers, select Add a Printer option.

Click the second option- Add a network, wireless or Bluetooth printer.

The computer will search for available printer and reflect it on the screen.

Click Finish; and the printer is ready to begin the printing process.

Instal hp dekjet 1280 with hp wireless printing upgrade kit in windos 7


Wireless printers may face an installation problem with Windows 7 operating system. For example, Toshiba laptop is compatible with this operating system yet it may require a driver download for executing a print command on wireless printer. To combat this challenge, users are advised to delete and re-install the printer. If the problem persists assign the wireless printer to a fixed address through a router instead of the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP). Accessing the wireless printer from a laptop with Windows 7 operating system can be a challenge. Often, it may display the printer to be offline. To resolve the issue, users must cancel printing jobs immediately and delete offline printers from the Printers option in the Control Panel. Visit the Printer properties and access the Ports tab, delete the printer that displays the offline status and appears as Client Side Rendering Provider. Delete the Port button and click apply. Restart the PC. Now re-install the wireless printer by visiting the Control panel, opening Printers and clicking option add a printer. Now select add a local printer, followed by selecting the option "Use an existing port", LPT1: (Printer Port). Install the printer driver offered by Windows 7. In the next window leave the Set as a default printer box unchecked and re-name the printer. Click Next. Upon successful installation, the operating system will display the message "You've successfully added printer name"

I want to connect a HP P4014n Laserjet Printer up to another computer but I do not have this installation disc, how can I get this printer working on another computer?


download the driver / software from hp website.
if your system is connected to the network / router, your system should recognize your laptop or another system (same workgroup).
add new printer see if the system recognizes else. add the printer by providing the printer ip address. (test print from your printer and will provide the ip address)

Recently got two new laptops and have a existing Dell 3 in 1 photo printer all wireless. Loaded the printer software on the laptops I can print using the usb cable but it will not print wireless not sure...


make sure that both your computer and printer are both on the same network. after connect them you are most likely going to have to add the printer to the laptops. go into your control panel where it says hardware and sound and click on printer. there will be an option to add printer up at the top, click that and a new window will open up, click on the add wireless or bluetooth printer and follow the steps.

Dell 3300 Printer Adapter and Vista


Vista is tricky when adding networked printers.  
Add printer by using a local device, not a networked device.  Assume the printer is connected locally to the machine.
