Make my Lexmark x5340 be wireless'

Is this a wireless printer? Is it being used for a large office or a small home type office? If you are using it for a home office and have multiple pcs, then you can setup a homegroup. A homegroup is like building your own personal small network. You will be able to share and print documents between your computers. Once you setup the homegroup, on one computer, then you will have to add the other computers to the group using the access code that the first computer will provide. Be sure to enable printer and file sharing when setting-up the homegroup. Once setup, you will be able to print your documents from any connected printer on your network. It's not wireless but it might help to solve a print sharing problem. Good luck. How To Set Up Homegroup Sharing Plus Printer Sharing

The printer (hp laserjet p2015) appears offline

Press and hol the green 'go' button until the lights flash, (about 4-5 seconds) and release the button,

Wait for the config pages to print out, and then check your network configuration, i.p address, Subnet mask and gateway.

If no network page prints out, you might have a dead Network Interface in the printer.

I access my office computer using my laptop via a VPN. I have bought a HP Photosmart to print off the laptop. It is linked to the laptop using USB cable. How can I print from the remote computer via the...

Normally, we put the printer on the network as a network printer and then install the printer to the VPN as a device.

I think it's the same for share the printer on your laptop, then it should be able to be found by the office computer as your laptop is on the VPN.

My printer canon ir2022n network printer does not print from my new vista business OS computer

Windows sharing based printers are dependent on the computer where the printer is attached. This means that if the computer is turned off, or is in the sleep/hibernate mode, then all the computers that can print through that server will not be able to print. To solve this issue you can use external print servers to share printers in the home/office. External print servers are connected to the router which allows it to be available on the network without being dependent on any other computer system. External print servers are available in both wireless and wired versions, and the choice between those options is based on the needs of the home or office.get more information and help for Network Printer Configuration .Hope this helps you.

Sharing cannon printer MP170

If you want to make your printer a Stand-alone device (no need to be connected to a computer, just directly to the router) you may want to look at getting a Print-Server.

But if you just want to share the printers, you will have to install the printer separately on both computers (since they use 2 diff drivers for the printer), then share it on the vista computer. at this point you should now be able to print on both machines
