Question about Computers & Internet

2 Answers

I have bought an Hp 6730b laptop. I have the old PC main computer downstairs with the printer and wireless broadband attached. My husband has an even older PC computer upstairs and can access the printer and the broadband from there. I want to get rid of my old one but do not want to make the upstiars one the main one as it is a very small room. How can I make the new laptop the main but also enable me to take it away and still have the printing and broadband available to the upstairs PC. I am a woman who knows not much, can you tell. Daughter suggests a Docking station???

You may as well buy a wireless printer and try to replace the old with the new.
You already have a wireless router, so the rest is easy.

You have a wireless card in your computer so this is plus. You should be able to activate this so than you can pick up signal from your modem as soon as you connect a router to it. Let me know if I can help with any other questions. Thanks.

MY HP 6730B will not power on with or without battery installed. the charger light blinks several times but nothing happens. The battery and AC adaptor are only a couple of months old. Any ideas...


Unplug your computer, remove the battery and hold down the start button for 60 seconds. Plug it back in and try to restart. If this works, turn it off again and reinstall the battery.

If this fails, you may have a motherboard issue.

Good luck.

Need to connect HP 6480 printer to wireless computer


The printer needs to be setup on the network. Either wired or wireless, same principle applies. You have to install the drivers for the printer on your computer and scan or add the printer. It will show up as an IP or Device name.

HP Photosmart C4780 and Acer Aspire fight over web-based printing!


Try hard-wiring your laptop to the router with an ethernet cable as a test and then try printing, if you do not loose connection to the internet then the problem is probably that the printing is hogging your wireless bandwidth.
If the same thing happens with loosing connection to the internet try connecting to the internet real quick through another computer that is hardwired, you want to find out if the problem is a wireless one or that affects wired computers also. You might need a driver upgrade, you also might need to upgrade the firmware of the router
