I can't connect the printer with my laptop. The printer is connected to my main computer and I'm trying to get my laptop to recognize the printer.

You will need to add this printer as a network printer using the main computer as the server. This is easily done, but is different for each operating system.
winXP= start>settings>printers and Faxes>add a printer> add network printer (next will search for printer)
- sometimes you must share the main computer by opening windows explorer and right clicking on the c: and select sharing and follow the screen
- Hope this helps, send more info if you need more help

A friends iof my gave me this router, but I don't know how to install it so that i can use it with my laptop in my living room. my internet is connect to my computer in my room. My main internet is in...

You have a few options. If you already have a router, set this one up as an Wireless Access point. It pulls signals from the main router and you can connect to this one. BUT your signal could be weak depending on the distance, walls etc. If you can make a cable run, use it as a switch. (Extend your ports, and as a wireless point. Go to Cisco Linksys and download the manual.It is not difficult. Use the main router as a your DHCP and this one as a wireless point. You will need to set up the SSID and security (Securty is optional, but I would do it). Give it a SSID different then your main one and you can setup your device to connect to the one with the strongest signal (Most do this by default.

I am having connection problems with this product, the NetGear Router WGR614. My computer that the router is connected to is in my family room and it works great in here, but when i am sitting in a chair...

HI, This is one of the problems associated with wireless connections in the home.
I have many clients in a similar sitauationa and where possible, I run an ethernet cable from the router to whereever the computer is to be used. Alternatively I use what's known as 'Powerline networking'. This is a system whereby the mains wireing in your house is used instead of ethernet.
There are several brands available and you can buy units that have a wireless transamitter on one mains plug so that you can be flexible with your wireless layout.
I have found this to be much more reliable than trying to use 'range-boosters'.

Please consider the steps given below to troubleshoot the issue while connecting the Camera to the HP Computer using a USB cable.

(i) Before connecting the Camera to the Computer, first initialize the Camera to the original factory settings by following the steps given below:

Setting up a laptop to our home computer


As you already have a broadband at your house, its going to be very easy for you to connect the notebook in the same network.

I would assume that right now your computer would be connected directly to a DSL/Cable modem.

What you should do at this stage is that you can buy a Wireless Router.

The computer that you are using at the moment might be a desktop and may not be wireless capable.

So your Wireless router would be placed right next to your desktop and the desktop would be connected using a wire to the same router.

Your router which is wireless capale will let your notebook also connect to the internet. I am stressing on the wireless as you mentioned that the notebook will be on a different floor.

Note :- I have given this suggestion assuming that the notebook you have bought is wireless capable.
If it is not than you will have to pull a wire up to the other room and you can buy a normal router as well.

Hope that you find this as a good suggestion.
