Wireless connection with a wireless router (Netgear WNDR 4000) a pc and a laptop.


I assume you connect your printer to the desktop with the USB cable.
I assume the laptop is connected to the Wifi network.

First you need to setup the printer to connect to the wireless network. Follow the printer installation instructions to do that.
Next insert the install Disc into the laptop and follow the installation instructions. Use the network installation section.

The printer has a built-in server for printing.
If UPNP is enabled on the router then you should be able to browse the printer on the network.

Can we use MF6550 for wireless network?


If you use a wireless USB print server like this . Keep in mind that you may not get all functions such as scanning to work but it will allow for printing for sure. If the scanning works consider it a bonus.

LEXMARK C534 I WANT TO THE LAPTOP TO BE CONNECT TO THE PRINTER WIRELESSLY BUT I NEED THE IP ADDRESS AND I DO NOT HAVE ONE AS IT IS CONNECT DIRECTLY TO THE DESKTOP COMPUTER. THE REPORT I PRINTED...


The easiest way for you to accomplish this is to go onto the desktop computer, and go to control panel and printers & faxes.

From there right click on the printer icon and go under sharing. Turn the sharing on for this printer.

On the laptop, now surf to the ip address of the desktop. If sharing is on correctly the printer should show up. Double click the printer icon and follow the prompts to setup the printer.

If done properly you will then be able to print to the printer THRU the desktop as long as your network settings on the laptop are set correctly to see the desktop.

Network Vista Wireless Laptop to XP Desktop & Print Documents


On the desktop machine - go to the printers folder, right click the icon for the Laserjet and choose sharing (enable print sharing). You should be able to name the printer and make it accessible to anyone within the workgroup. If needed you can run the network setup wizard to change the workgroup names on both machines.

On the laptop go to add new printer and choose network printer, you should be able to browse to the desktop machine by name and choose the Laserjet as a printer (whether you want it to be the default is up to you). The laptop will download and install the drivers from the desktop pc to the laptop and set the correct network path automatically.

It goes without saying that the desktop machine must be on in order to print from the laptop in this scenario.

HP Color Laserjet won't print from desktop - or wirelesslly from laptop - but WILL print directly from laptop.  : ( Need knowledgable networking and driver and  port personn to walk me through this.


I am going to assume that the printer is plugged directly into the desktop and if so then you need to go to printer and setting and setup you color laserjet as a shared printer. Now see if you can see the printer on your network, thru the wireless connection on the laptop.
once done that will probbably work, but you are probbably going to need your desktop on to print

Mac printer Hp Printer


It's because your printer is set for sharing on a windows based network. Mac has a different network for sharing printers not compatible with windows.

The only way to get it to work on the network is to get a print server either wired or wireless and connect the printer that way to your network. Then everyone can use it.

Print from laptop wirelessly


Yes there is NO reason why you can't. You must simply install the Printer Drivers on BOTH PC's. Using the Software supplied, first Setup/Install the printer on your Desktop PC, FIRST, as a LOCAL printer. Then 2nd, from ya lappy setup your printer as a "Networked" printer.. locate and connect.. the driver will install, & ya can then print a Test Page, to see if it is all OK. After the Drivers are installed at BOTH locations you will be able to print from your laptop through your desktop to ya printer... no worries..
