Is there a way I can print wireless from my laptop through the desktop attached to the Canon Pixma MX310 printer?


Yes.
The desktop and laptop both need to be attached to the same network.

On your desktop:
Go to Control Panel, Printers and Faxes
Right click on your printer, and click on "Sharing"
Share the printer on your network

On your laptop:
Go to Control Panel, Printers and Faxes
"Add Printer"
Choose a "Network attached Printer"
Browse for the printer, and add in.

I just bought a linksys wrt120n wireless router. Is there a way to use the wireless router to print on my new laptop?


This model printer does not have a network connection therefore to print via wireless from the laptop, the printer needs to be connected to a computer and setup as a shared printer. This computer must be connected to the wireless router with a LAN cable.
Please click on this link and follow my instruction to configure a shared network printer :-

Can I wirelessly connect a laptop to this printer -


If the printer you want to connect the laptop to is a wireless printer you should be all right.

Have you configured the wireless adapter on both the printer and laptop for the correct freq or channel?

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.

Wireless printers


only if it's wireless or it can be wired to the network, I have both kinds. My wireless has an ethernet card that connects to any computer in the house, just by running the software in all of the machines. If you have no wireless card you can still share the printer in by selecting shared in the properties menu of the printer, it will still need to be wired to one of the machines If it is not a wireless device.Another way is to connect it to a home network through the router, but it will still need to be connected to a Lan through the router and thus have an IP address has network printing capabilitys.

Wireless printing


I assume you have a wireless network set up with a wireless router, since you said you have a wireless laptop.
You need to share the printer on the desktop. You also need to set up both computers to be on the same network (for example, WORKGROUP or MSHOME, or a name of your choosing).Once shared and on the same network, you can go to the laptop and add a printer--just tell it that it is a network printer.
A caution--to work without further hassle, both computers need to be running the same version of Windows. If not, you'll need the driver disk for the system on your laptop.

D-link DI-524 wireless - lan network connection


Yep. Vista sucks :-)

In the vista machine, you have to turn on a whole bunch of options. Right click Network, hilghlight properties and left click and it opens up Network and Sharing Center. Down at the bottom, you have a list of options. Start by turning on the options you need: File Sharing, Public File sharing, Printer Sharing etc. I'm pretty sure it's already done in the XP machine, but if not, check there too.

It should start to show network files between machines.

1- set up router trough desktop
2-run program for wireless, after it gives you the IP ( which it already has, set user name and password for protection)
3-set up the laptop as a "Shared folder" along with the printer if there is one.

Network switch


Sounds like you know what you're doing... but.. based on what you've typed..

You need to make certain the comcast cable modem is plugged into the seperate port on the back of the router called WAN and not next to the other LAN connectors.

The network is seperate from the internet. The router acts as a firewall and shares the WAN with the LAN internally and automatically.

I assum that you have one red light on WAN.. and three green lights for LAN..

Trying to network xp pc to wireless laptop


Right click on the drive you want to share. Ex: C:\Vol-xx = name. In the pop up window click Sharing & Security. This needs done to all the drives you want access too. To share a printer. Everyone must have the printer drivers installed. The Pc that has a direct connection to the printer must also Share the printer on the network. Open Printer & Faxes, highlight the printer you want to share. Click File than click Sharing follow windows instructions.
Small suggestion regards to the wireless side of the network. Suggest you setup security so others close too you can not tap into your network. (common).
