Have you considered purchasing a usb (not ethernet) hub so both devices could connect to the hub and then to a single port on the PC.

How can I set up my HP C7180 to scan to my second laptop, a VAIO VPC-EB33FM/B

To be able to scan to the laptop it MUST be connected to the printer either with a usb cable or through the router. There is a way to bypass the wireless functionality of the router and laptop. Use an ethernet cable to connect your laptop directly to the router. It should work right away. It's highly unlikely that Windows XP will not work the wireless router. I would suggest you contact the actual manufacturer of the router instead of verizon.

Go to the store and buy some rubbing alcohol. Put some on a paper towel and rub the metal contacts on the back of the ink cartridges. If that does not work, also try cleaning the metal contacts on the inside of the printer with a paper towel and rubbing alcohol. If both solutions don't work, it is time to buy new ink cartridges or even a new printer.

My printer will not connect to my computer's wireless network.


The first step is to set up a wireless network is that you need the equipments for connection. First of all you need a Broadband Internet connection, Wireless router, and a wireless network adapter. The router converts the signals coming from your Internet connection into a wireless broadcast. You need to purchase an adapter for a desktop computer and you must make sure that you have one adapter for every computer. If you have a desktop computer make sure that you have an USB port to plug the wireless network adapter to your computer.

If there is only 1 ethernet port on your router it sounds like this is the port for your modem to connect to your router and that your router is only built for wireless. If you want to connect computers via ethernet cable you will need either a new router with a 4 port switch or a new wireless router with a 4 port switch. (you can get more than 4 ports if you have more that 4 computers).

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.

Normal 0 Could have a corrupt driver.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and when the CD software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud
