Wifi laptop will not print to printer - not a wifi printer

Have 2 pcs and printer hardwired in LAN plus a wifi laptop installed later. When the laptop was installed it would print on the printer through the wifi. That feature has stopped for some reason. How do I get the laptop to print to the hardwired printer through the wifi/LAN connection so that I can print anywhere within wifi range??? Are there settings to be made in the laptop or printer that may have been lost?

Check if the printer has a wireless option. Actually this issue is complex. First thing first, you can print wirelessly from your laptop within the WIFI range in a case that your printer do have wireless on in. It is impossible to print wirelessly from the wired printer through LAN.

One thing, I guess you don't have a wireless router. You need to have a wireless router like LINKSYS that is easy to setup then try to connect wirelessly to the wired printer. There I am not too sure if your can do a printing option from your laptop wirelessly.

Lastly, check if you have a ROUTER and need to set it up on your laptop and on the network LAN. You may now have a NETWORK printer in this regards. Thank you.

Try plugging it in directly.
Sometimes the wifi printer has to be set up AFTER the hardwire setup.
If you are desparate, plug it in directly to your computer to get your job done and figure out the wifi later.

Sometimes this problem occures when you install a later model wireless router.

Canon mp620 not connecting to my wifi laptop


This could happen if the port that you are using is not the right one.

When you are using a printer wireless, you need to use the Standard TCP/IP port, to setup a printer port, do the following

Right click on printer icon, select properties
Click on Add port, select new port
Enter the IP address of the printer, this can be obtained by printing the settings page from the printer.

Note: please setup a static IP for your printer, else everytime you restart you may endup with a new IP

Let me know if this works,

Wireless network


If you were using Desktop PCs, then usually you need to install a WiFi Card to make it WiFi Capable (its like a LAN Card but with Antenna, or you can simply purchase a USB WiFi device if you dont want to open your Computer. if you were use a Laptop check for WiFi setting or switch on your Laptop and turn it on, make sure your WiFi driver is installed properly.
