First you would make sure the printer is connected to the network and working. Leaving the printer & any other computer using the network on start your Mac Book. It should be automatically recognized on the network. You will then need to use the add printer wizard and find your shared printer info. Once it recognizes the printer it will install the driver so that you will be able to print from the Mac as well as any other computer on the network. Hope this helps.

HP DESKJET D1360 HOW TO SET UP WIRELESSLY USING MAC


Are you trying to use MAC filtering. You would just need the MAC from the network setup screen and add it to your router/firewall.

If you are using a Mac (Apple) computer you would, providing you have a wireless adapter connected to Mac, just go into "System Preferences" and use the wizard under "Print & Scan". Make sure the networking on the printer is in on the same as your Mac.

CAN THE DELL AIO 948 PRINTER BE USED FOR SHARING


Yes, If it is connected to a computer on your home network, right click the printer, setup sharing. For example, if you have a laptop on the same home network, Add a network printer to the laptop and print wirelessly without a wireless printer.

I purchase hp laser m1005, can i convert to wireless


Not that I am aware of , but to print from it wirelessly can be done if you have a home network. If you have a Destop computer ,for instance, you could connect via a printer cable to the desktop and share the printer on your home network you set up. on your laptop just add a printer and it will work wirelessly as a network printer.

you are interconnected via ethernet based or wireless network???

(yes) - 'share' the printer and it will be acessible by all devices on your network. Your printer will have to be connected to a PC even if it is network ready for the Mac to use it, I believe.

To 'share' your printer, right click on the printer and select 'share'. It is a simple process.

If you need more help, let me know

I hope this helps you.

hi there,

Because printers and networks vary, the best instructions for setting up and networking your printer should be in its users manual. Also, your network-ready printer may have come with installation software that can help you share the printer over the network.

There are three main steps you need to take when networking a printer, including the following: Enable the File And Printer Sharing setting, Make the printer available to all users, and Direct PCs to the printer.

For detailed instructions on sharing printers at home, please refer to the "Get Your House In Order" article in the "See Also:" section below.

For detailed instructions on sharing printers in a small business, please refer to the "Select & Share The Right Printer For Your Small Business"

Wireless printing


The MP830 does not include the ability to do Wireless Network printing. You can however, connect this printer to one of your Windows or Mac PCs and share it on the network, which is wireless, therefore accomplishing the same thing.

1) Install the Drivers and Software that came with your Printer.
2) Go to the Control Panel > Printers & Faxes
3) Right-click your printer and click "Sharing"
4) Choose Share this Printer, and give it a name.
5) You can then on, use the Add Printer Wizard on any other Windows PC and install it by searching for network printers.

Step 1 is the same for Mac
2) Go to System Preferences > Sharing
3) Check the box for Printer Sharing
4) Any Mac on the network can see it!!
5) Added treat: go to http://apple.com/bonjour to install bonjour for Windows, using this software you can print using any Mac printer on any PC
