My printer is not connecting wireless from my comp. I brought it over from my parents house to my new place and it wont work.

For installing a wireless printer on Windows XP, wireless router is an essential device.

Follow the recommended steps mentioned on the installation CD of the router, and set-up a wireless network.

Since several computers or laptops will access the printer, it is recommended to connect the wireless printer to the main computer through the USB port.

To begin the installation process on Windows XP, access the network setting in the Control Panel, and activate the file and printer sharing option in the LAN setting.

This will allow the operating system to recognize the availability of a wireless printer.

Now, click the Start button, go to Devices and Printers, select Add a Printer option.

Click the second option- Add a network, wireless or Bluetooth printer.

The computer will search for available printer and reflect it on the screen.

Click Finish; and the printer is ready to begin the printing process.

I want to wireless print to my HP 2610 printer through an Airport express router using Windows xp. When I attempt to install the driver I get a message that a printer cannot be detected on the network...

First install the Printer with USB connectivity.
Then insert the printer driver CD again. You will get the Add a Device option this time on the Welcome Screen.

Select it. Now before you continue, just add the exceptions to the firewall list.
Perform the steps given on the above document to add the exceptions to firewall.

Then Make a right click on My Computer Icon on your desktop.
Go to Hardware Tab. Select Device Mananger.
Go to View Tab on Device manager and select Show Hidden Devices.
Then search for Multifunction Adapter. Uninstall the printer icon under it.
Now click on Add a Device.
Try installing now.

I have a acer laptop. i also have the printer usb cord sonnected to the computer and i inserted the disk to install the option to use the printer. but it doesn't want to install. how can i get the printer...

First disconnect the printer from the laptop. install the drivers from the CD that came with the printer. Reboot. Now connect the printer. Allow Windows to detect the printer and load its drivers and give you a message in the right bottom corner saying "The new HW is installed and ready for use". Now run the word processor and go to File->Print. Here specify this printer as your default printer. And print away.

My dell 1110 printer doesn't print

You are not using a lpt port since the dv laptop doesn't have one. The printer does not have one ether. You need to select usb instead of lpt.

Well it s a issues with the ip address on the printer and the computer.Both of them are not the same.You need to delete the printer icon and inser the cd that came with the printer and then try add a device .The printer drivers would be reinstalled and it should be ready to print and scan.

No software disk to load 1700 into Dell 6400 Inspiron laptop.

In Windows, how do I install my printer? Most new printers, especially USB printers, come with installer programs. If you have neither installation instructions nor an installation program, you can use one of the following procedures to install most printers:
USB printers (Windows 98, Me, 2000, and XP only)
  1. Make sure that the USB cable is unplugged from your computer and your printer. USB devices work differently from older devices and usually need to have the drivers installed before you connect the device.

  2. If you have an installation disk, insert it into the drive. If there is an installer provided, it should run or be executed here. Follow its instructions, and it should take care of installing your printer in a few moments.

  3. If you don't have an installation program, plug the USB cable into your computer and your printer. This should trigger the Add New Hardware Wizard.

  4. Click Next, and then select Search for the best driver for your device. Click Next.

  5. Uncheck all options except Specify a Location. Click Browse. Browse to the disk, CD, or directory where your printer drivers are located. Click OK, and then click Next twice. Note: You can download some drivers from the web. Consult the web site of your printer's manufacturer, or see Where can I find driver updates for my Windows computer?
  6. When all the files are copied, click Finish.

  7. Turn on your printer. Windows should detect the printer's presence and finish the installation. If the option to print a test page is offered, do so. This will confirm the installation. Click Finish.

Laptop running vista and pc running XP can't get laptop to print on printer connected to PC laptop is wireless

share the printer first on the main pc (desktop)
get the sharename and full computer name of the main pc, its case sensitive.......

then, install the vista driver on the laptop. (note: you need vista drivers installed locally on the laptop because the main pc has a different operating system)

after installing the driver, go to the printers folder, right click the printer icon, go to properties, go to the ports tab, hit add port.
a new window will open giving you the option of local port.
select local port then click new port! on the space type in the information you got earlier... \\fullcomputername\sharename then click add

ex: \\rblb55\Printer1

this will add a port on the selections, make sure the one thats checked is the port that you just added. click apply or ok to close those windows.

then print............
