Help to install R280 with a router for windows xp

I need help from a level 2 technician to tell me how to set up the R280 so that we can print from a computer via Airport Extreme where the printer is hooked up.  I kept calling but the level 2 technicians are busy and I keep getting disconnected after a 30 min. waiting period.  Very frustrating.

What do I need to make my printer wireless?


You need 1) a wireless router with a USB port that supports the HP OfficeJet printer. 2) The software for your router to run a printer on the USB port. Obviously, you will need a USB A/B male end cable.Note: the scan features of the all-in-one may not work unless the printer is directly connected to the computer. Bi-directional communication is required for scanning and the router software may not support this completely.

Check the list of supported printers closely for older routers. I have a Cisco Linksys E4200 v.2. This router supports all the HP printers that I use.

If this is a new installation of the printer, first install the printer on the computer. If you have Windows 7, just connect the printer to the USB port on the laptop. This will install the OS drivers for the printer. (For Windows XP, go to the HP site and get the full software.)

Next install the wireless router between your modem and computer and set that up. (If you have DHCP (dynamic address allocation), it should be automatic. Otherwise follow the directions.) Next install the router software (for my router, it was Cisco Connect).

My next step was to launch the Cisco Connect program and connect the printer directly to the USB port on the router. In Cisco Connect, choose add a printer and find the printer connected to the router. Print a test page. (At times, I've had to reset the port that the printer is on in the Windows Control Panel Printer Properties. (For the Cisco Connect, the printer is on the DOT4 port.)

Other routers will be set up somewhat differently.

Another option is to have the printer connected to a desktop and then make it a shared printer with the wireless router communicating between the laptop and the desktop. This makes the desktop the print server, so it needs to be on when you want to print. If you have several computers with Windows, this can fairly easy to set up. Make sure that the computers are in the same Workgroup (XP) or Homegroup (Win7). Enable sharing and you are done.

I hope this helps.

(who has a OJ 7000 (with ethernet port) and a LJ1320 (USB) connected to the router. Three computers talk to these printers with the laptop on the wireless network. On an older router that didn't support the printers, the laptop was the server for a previous OfficeJet and one of the desktops was the server for the LaserJet.)

Net Gear PS121 print server, prints test page but not word docs


It's a driver problem not installed properly on the XP machines. Here's what you can do. Install first the driver of the printer directly to the XP machines. Then try to re-do the smart wizard installation.

Trying to set up a network printer with DELL TRUEMIBILE 2350...please help


using windows xp on all the computers, when you connect to the printer windows should automatically install drivers.

1. Goto My Computer, Click My Network Places (Explorer Bar).
2. Click View Workgroup Computers (Explorer Bar)
3. Find the computer that has the printer physically connected to it, open it
4. Find the printer and right click it!
5 Select Connect... and wait for the drivers to install.

this should install the print drivers and install the printer on your computer. the printer should now be available in print dialogs i.e. word etc etc and from the Control Panel > Printers window.

Is there an instruction/users manual


You can use a computer as a print server, and the router will allow other computers to connect to it. But other than that, you'll need to buy a print server separately and hook it into your router. You can set your computer up as a print server by installing the printer on the computer and setting up file and printer sharing through the network setup wizard in Windows XP, this can be found in Control Panel. Once that is set up, do the same for all other networked computers and then you will be able to install the printer on all other computers and print wirelessly (or wired) from any computer connected to the router. However, the computer the printer is physically connected to will need to stay on all the time, or at least be on when you need to print from another computer. I'm not quite sure if you can get a router with a built in print server anyway. But you can certainly achieve what you're looking to do - but perhaps not an all in one package like you were asking. I hope this helps you.
