Assuming that your printer is physically connected to your main computer, and that your laptop is wirelessly networked with your main computer,

then you need to have the main computer on as you attempt to print from your laptop

Hi
Try to unplug the power cable of your router for a minute or 2 to re-establish its connection to server. Then try reconnecting to your home network.
Hope this helps

Laptops not picking up on wireless signal


You will need to replace the router. This is typical of the failure pattern of all wireless routers. If you continued using the router on the wireless you would begin to notice those connected by wire disconnected and then quickly reconnecting again.

Unfortunetly this is typical of any home grade wireless router after 1-2 years of use or age. About all you can do is to do a hard reset and/or upgrade the router system software. That can regain use of the wifi for a while but it will fail again usually within a few weeks or days.

Best advice is to replace it with a new one. NetGear or D-Links are both reccomended. Linksys is not. If you check out the sales you should be able to find a good replacement for less than what you paid for the one you have giving you trouble. We replace about 2-3 wireless routers a week with these problems. Have tried fixing them even with the factory tech rep on the phone and in the end just ended up junking them.

Did you accidentally turn off your wireless by somehow pressing function button and F2. Is the blue light on indicating the computers wireless service is working.

Wireless printing


The printer has o go through a router to work for the other two computers. The only other solution is setting up a wireless network with internet sharing on a HOC and share all file and printer services though it. The main PC would act as a router. for $40.00 you can buy a router and make it work.

i just set up this printer two days ago - got the wireless indicator to finally go from orange to green (not sure how, it always said it was connected to my network and everything looked good when i had it print a wireless setup page)...
i've got it on a mac OSX and windows vista (the main reason i wanted wireless printing! two laptops in the household) - both are spotty on when the computer will connect and print - more often not than so.

My 3 different mac laptops with airport can't connect to my wirless


Sounds like you might be accidentally connecting to a neighbour's network instead of your own. You need to go into your wireless settings on each laptop and tell them to connect to your own network.
