I have a compaq presario laptop that connects properly with the router in regards to its internet connection. but when i tried to print wirelessly (printer connected to the personal computer), i won't work. what can i do? i already tried to change the properties of the printer connected to the personal computer (HPDeskjet374) which enables sharing but when i tried to "add printer" on the compaq laptop. the name of the printer doesn NOT appear :(

You must have a network set up, and you must enable file and printer sharing on the desktop. The laptop and the desktop should be in the same workgroup. Some firewalls will cause this problem.
Start with the network setup wizard in Settings/Network.

File and print sharing works over NETBIOS protocol , Make sure that NETBIOS over TCP/IP is enabled , some times NETBIOS forwarding is blocked by router firewall.

Follow these steps

1) make sure that both personal computer and laptop is on the same subnet for example

* Personal Computer IP : 192.168.1.2 Mask : 255.255.255.0
GateWay 192.168.1.1 (router)

* Laptop IP : 192.168.1.3 Mask : 255.255.255.0 Gw : 192.168.1.1(router)

* Wireless Router IP : 192.168.1.1 255.255.255.0

2) Enable File and Print Sharing on Personal Computer and share the printer as required

3) Enable Forward NETBIOS in the router , Check your firewalls manual for this step

4) In the laptop open printers and say add printer, and select network printer if you dont see shared printer in the list we have an alternative way

open Start --> Run and type \\192.168.1.2 if it ask username and password give username and password that you use in personal computer , In the opened window you can see the printer which is shared , Just double click it . It will install itself in the Laptop

Hope this would help solving the problem

Good Luck

When i plug in my router the ip address changes and i cant access net


This issue is possibly due to a configuration problem
1.Log into router
2. Verify wireless router name( on the computer) >>> ( on/off)
3.Note router name you are connecting to.
4.. Check the laptop do ipconfig /all to see current IP addresses.
5. Set the laptop up in the router by WEP KEY or MAC address.
6.Note router name you are connecting to.
7. Move the laptop about 20ft away and try to log on to the internet.
This is for all routers to set up wirelessly.

Here is the link for the DIR-330 your model number did not list:

My dlink dir 300 router is not connecting via wireless.


Some questions for you..
1. Do you know if the laptop has wireless capability ( since you said its an old laptop ) 2. If there is built in wireless in the laptop, please chk if there is any wireless switch that you might have to power on 3. If its an external wireless card, please make sure that the drivers are installed in it. 4. Log on to the web interface of the router and check if you can change the wireless channel in the router. Change it to channel 11
I hope this solves the issue.
Thanks Ranjit
