All my wireless computer can share the printer without any problem.

SOURCE: JUST INSTALL MY NEW PRINTER, LEXMARK C540 SERIES,

Most of the time the problem can be resolved by reseating the printhead cable which can be accessed by opening the back cover of the printer. If that won't resolve the problem, I recommend to have it serviced. It's a possible defective printhead.

From what I can tell it looks like this printer does not have built-in wireless networking. I believe you still should be able to print wirelessly, but you would need it connected to a computer via USB to maintain the connection.
Connect the printer to the computer that will stay on and share the printer on your network (this computer must be on your wireless network). Go to start menu>printers (win7 says "devices & printers). Right click on the printer you want to share and click "printer properties". Click on the tab that says "sharing". Check the box to share the printer on the network and name it whatever you want.
Now go to the computer you want to print wirelessly. Go to printers again then "add a printer". You should see an option for adding a local printer or a network printer. Choose a network printer and it should search your network and find the printer.

From your description, you appeared to have to have set up the printer correctly to print over your internet.
Can you see the remote computer from the main computer and the remote computer from the main computer?
Are both computers in the same workgroup or network name?

Had printer working with desktop, purchased wiless and cannot get printer to communicate.


Hi there,

Well it's better if you tell me which operating system you are using....?
anyway please follow the below steps to communicate your printer to the desktop  -

1. Check if your printer is network ready. Many newer models are designed to work on networks. Examine the documentation to see if your printer supports Wi-Fi (802.11x) or Bluetooth. 
 
2. Add network support to your printer. If your printer is not already wireless you can connect it to a wireless router using the RJ-45 Jack (it resembles a large telephone jack). You can also buy an expansion card that will add a jack or buy an external print server that will connect to the USB or parallel port.
 
3. Connect your printer to the network. If your printer is not wired, you’ll have to connect it directly to your wireless router. Connect a networking cable from the RJ-45 Jack on the printer (or adapter) to the router. Plug it into any jack except the UPLINK. The printer should automatically connect to the network when turned on.
 
4. Install printer drivers on all computers. Using the disc that came with the printer or drivers downloaded from the manufacturer, install the printer’s drivers onto each computer on the network.
 
5. Print. You should be able to access the printer just like any other wireless device. Select the printer from the Print menu when you print.

Share Your Printer in Windows
 
1. Install the printer. Set up the printer as normal on a machine that is already connected to the wireless network. Connect all necessary cables and install all necessary drivers.
 
2. Open the printers and faxes folder. Click "Start," then "Control Panel," then "Printers and Other Hardware" and then "Printers and Faxes."
 
3. Share your printer. Find the icon for the printer you just installed. Click the icon once and then select SHARE THIS PRINTER in the tasks pane on the left. Now, right click the icon, select properties and go to the SHARING tab. Click "Share Name," and then click "Okay."
 
4. Connect to the printer. On the other computers within the network, open the control panel and click "Printers and Other Hardware." Select "Add a Printer."
 
5. Select "Printer Connection." When prompted, select this option instead of the local printer. Find and select the printer you just installed and select it. 
 
6. Print as normal. Next time you print a page, send it to your networked printer.

Good Luck!!

Thanks

hi there,

Because printers and networks vary, the best instructions for setting up and networking your printer should be in its users manual. Also, your network-ready printer may have come with installation software that can help you share the printer over the network.

There are three main steps you need to take when networking a printer, including the following: Enable the File And Printer Sharing setting, Make the printer available to all users, and Direct PCs to the printer.

For detailed instructions on sharing printers at home, please refer to the "Get Your House In Order" article in the "See Also:" section below.

For detailed instructions on sharing printers in a small business, please refer to the "Select & Share The Right Printer For Your Small Business"

Wireless printing


I assume you have a wireless network set up with a wireless router, since you said you have a wireless laptop.
You need to share the printer on the desktop. You also need to set up both computers to be on the same network (for example, WORKGROUP or MSHOME, or a name of your choosing).Once shared and on the same network, you can go to the laptop and add a printer--just tell it that it is a network printer.
A caution--to work without further hassle, both computers need to be running the same version of Windows. If not, you'll need the driver disk for the system on your laptop.

Use two computers with one printer


Printer Sharing (This is good for Windows 2000, XP and Vista)
Sharing will be very easy if your network is working.
You need to consider the computer where the printer connected as the "Host" and the other computer that wants to print to that printer as the "Client".
Before you do such sharing, you need to acquire each computer's IP address.
You can do it by accessing MSDOS Prompt and typing in ipconfig/all. Write down your IP addresses and the share name on a paper.
For your Host:
Install the driver, make sure that you can print on direct bi-directional connection (such as USB).
Go to Control Panel >Printers and Faxes* >Sharing >Share this printer >Type in your share name, good example is PRINTER (this is case sensitive).
For your Client:
Install the driver, make sure that you can print, same with the Host.
Go to Control Panel >Printers and Faxes* >Properties >Ports >Add Port >Add local port type in \\ (the IP Addressof the Host) \ (share name), click OK.
ex. \\192.168.1.3\PRINTER (watch your backslash, no spaces)
*Term used is "Printers" for Windows Vista and Windows 2000
