There are several things that you can do, the easiest is to have one of the systems HOST the printer, then SHARE that printer.

I need to know your OS to help with the rest, but for windows:

BE SURE if you use a wireless router, TURN ON SECURITY. Make the access code a 10 digit number....

Next, you may need to invoke the Network Wizard, in control panel, and that turns on all the switches to have the printer visible on your network. If you are running XP, you may need to do this in both computers.

In Vista go to network and sharing center, and give permissions there.

Sooo, now you have one computer able to print to this printer, and on that system, the printer is SHARED.

Now go to the 2nd computer, and you need to add a printer. If not on your start list, look in control panel... you want to add a NETWORK printer. You would like the system to look for available printers. Eventually, the shared printer should show up, you need to add it and install whatever drivers are needed, but typically NOT from the printer install disk, as that disk it intended for the host system, not network users...

Hope this gets you going.

(It is becoming more common, now, to have printers as their own network unit, but some of the setups are bumpy for less techie people... Hosting by one computer is much more stable.)

Check your wireless security settings and make sure the mac address of your printer is allowed to connect to the router. In addition, I would set my printer to only allow incoming connections from the router or you will have people driving by, printing ads that you probably will not like.

SOURCE: Conflict with new router address on my network

Printer IP needs to be in the same range as the computers and router. All should have the same first 3 sets of numbers....

192.168.1.

the last set of numbers identifies the individual address of the piece of equipment.

Change the IP address on the printer to 192.168.1.251 and see if you can see it in the internet explorer address bar...(should bring up a web page that displays the printers status) The other numbers should look like this:

255.255.255.0 (or similiar)
192.168.1.254 (Gateway ?)

Make sure the PC's all have the same first 3 sets also...or they won't see the printer.

Check your drivers at Driver Detective
If your computer does not recognize the printer, try going into your printers in the control panel and go to add printer and see if it finds it.

SOURCE: Canon MF4370dn printer network connection problem

Hi,
I had the same problem. I entered the info manually and it works. You could follow the instructions on how to do it manually in the e-manual (on the CD).
To get the IP, subnet mask, and default gateway: open a command prompt from windows. At the command prompt, type "ipconfig" without the quotes. Write down the IP address, subnet mask, and default gateway.
For the IP, for example, if what you have from the step above is 192.168.0.100, add 10 (so that you wont have repeated IPs by auto DHCP from the router. I am assuming you have no more than 5 machines on your network.) to the last number to have 192.168.0.110 to enter manually into the printer. Use the same subnet mask and default gateway.
Hope it helps.
Linh.

Can i hook up my printer to my wireless router and if i can how do i tell it to print when i need it to print


The iP6310D can't connect to the wireless router directly. It has a USB port and an optional blue-tooth receiver.
If you connect the printer to one computer, you may be able to share it using that computer as a server. Install the printer software on all of the machines. For the software, see http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/printers_multifunction/pixma_ip_series/pixma_ip6310d#DriversAndSoftware . For Windows 7 and 8, if you set up a Homegroup, enable sharing for the printer on the computer that it is directly connected to. Then use Add a Printer command from the Devices and Printers Control Panel option to locate networked printers. For other OS options, you'll need to make sure that the computers are in the same workgroup. (See the Network set-up information.) Then add a network printer.
If your wireless router has a USB port, you may be able to connect the printer to the router. Again install the printer software on each computer. Then use the router's software to add a printer on the computer. (For Linksys routers, that is the Cisco Connect software. Some routers may not offer this software for all OS's or for all printers.)

A similar option is a print server connected to the USB port of the printer. You will need to check the specifications for each one. There are some that only work on select printers.
Once the software (the printer driver and then the network software/shared printer is set up), then any program should be able to print following the File > Print command.
Please add a comment with your OS and/or router model, I'll try to walk you through setting up a shared printer or a USB connection on the router.

Cindy Wells
(Note: I have a USB printer connected and a wired network printer to a Cisco router. My only issue is that I get a printer error with every print job. The printers print the documents anyway. The error is due to the printers not responding to the software as fast as if it were a direct connection.)

How to hook up a wireless printer to a computer


Does the printer also have some "wired" interface (parallel-port, or USB-port)?

If not, then you need to purchase a router with wireless capability:

1. Connect cable-modem (or DSL-modem) to the 'WAN' (or 'IInternet') port on the router.

2. Connect one of the 'LAN' ports on the router to the network-port on your computer.

3. Configure the wireless-adapter inside the router:
* set an SSID -- the "name" of your wireless network
* encryption-level -- use 'WPA' or 'WPA2'
* a password for your network

4. Configure the wireless printer to connect to that SSID, using the password

5. On the computer, click "Add Networked Printer"

6. Print a "test" page: computer -> wired -> router -> wireless -> printer

I need to connect my printer to my wireless router.


Assuming your printer is network compatible:
  • If it uses Wireless, use your printer's configuration to connect to the D-Link's network. You may also want to use the D-Link's built-in DHCP controls to assign a single IP to your printer for simpler setup
  • If it has an Ethernet port, connect a cable from the Printer's Ethernet port to one of the 4 ports on the back of the router. This should connect the two and all going well, most printers will sort themselves out from here.
If your printer is not network capable, you will have to connect the printer to a computer then use Windows sharing options to share that computer's printer with the network.
Hope this helps, Alistair

How can I connect my printer to my wireless network


If you have a wireless-enabled printer, you can use the printer's configuration to connect it to the router. If you have a wired connection printer (ethernet port) connect it to one of the ports on the back of the router with an Ethernet cable and the printer should sort itself out. If your printer is not network-enabled, you will need to connect it directly to a network-connected computer, then use Windows' sharing settings to share the printer to the network.

Can i hook my printer to this router Linksys wireless-g 2.4ghz


You want to connect a printer to the network.
If you have Ethernet port on the printer then you can connect it to the router with the ethernet cable. IF it is wireless printer then you will need to connect to the wireless network on the printer. In both the cases you will need to set up your printer as a network printer. If you contact the manufacturer of the printer they will tell you how to do it.
If you do not have ethernet port on the printer and it has only USB port and it is not a wireless printer then you will need a print server. You can purchase a wireless print server and you can set it up so that all the computers will be able to print onthe same printer.
If you have only the USB port and you don't want to use print server, then you can connect your printer to one of your computer. Enable File and printer sharing on all the computer. If you go to microsoft.com and search for file and printer sharing, you will get steps to enable file and printer sharing.
If you want to check the wireless settings of the router, you will need to open the set up page of the router .

To install a HP printer (with built-in Jetdirect print server) as a network printer you need to do the following -
1. Open the printer’s menu and enable the Network Card – then configure the IP address of the network card so it matches the IP range of your network. Eg. If your IP's are 192.168.0.xxx then set the network card to a high number say 100 then set the Subnet Mask IP address to 255.255.255.0

If you have a wireless router then check the IP addresses that the router issues to the computers on your network and configure the IP address in the printer accordingly.
2. Install the HP printer driver on your computer/s using the LPT printer port.
3. Connect the printer with a LAN cable to the network hub/router.
4. Click on Printers and Faxes - right click on the HP printer and click on Properties.
5. Click on Ports and click on Add Port.
6. In available ports - click on Standard TCP/IP Port and then Configure port.
7. Tick the IP box and type in the IP address of the HP's printer IP address.
8. Click OK and tick Enable bi-directional support and then OK

Install the HP printer driver on every computer on your network and configure the printer’s TCP/IP port as previously detailed.

Do a test print page to check the printer.
You can now print from any computer on your network.

Need my laptop to communicate wireless to printer


If the printer does not have a built-in network card/print server then there is a couple of ways to do this.
If you have a desktop computer connected to the wireless router with a LAN cable, then connect the printer to the desktop computer and make this printer a shared printer on your network. This means that the desktop computer and printer needs to be on when you want to print from the laptop.
The other way is to purchase a print server, connect the printer to the print server and connect the print server with a LAN cable to the Wireless router.
If you don't have sufficient network ports on the wireless router then you need to purchase a hub. Then connect the hub and wireless router with a LAN cable and then the print server to the hub and other computers to the hub.
Setting up the wireless printing will depend upon which method you want to adopt and I can advise you when further when you are ready.
