Printer offline help

I have a Compaq Presario R3000 Laptop that is networked with a Dell desktop computer that shares a HP PSC2355v all-in-one printer. The laptop is on a linksys wireless print server. A while ago I have not been able to print to the HP printer and in the lower right hand corner the printer icon has a yellow triangle on it and when I point the curson over it, it gives you the Printer model name, status:Offline, state: Idle. What is wrong and what do I need to do to make it print again?

Can't acess laptop computer but can see on desktop


To allow access between both the laptop and desktop the hard drives or folders on both computers must be made shareable.
Right click on the C drive or folders or other hard drive then click on Sharing and Security - Sharing. Then in Network Sharing and security - tick Share this folder on the network and enter a share name that identifies this computer and drive/folder.

Can't see the printer over my network


After you reset your main PC to factory settings did you enable printer sharing on the PC?
Goto Control Panel > Printers and Faxes > Right click on HP printer and check the Sharing options.
I suspect this is not a router problem unless you have modified port forwarding parameters.

Suggest that when you next purchase a printer go for one with an ethernet port. They are much easier to manage with multple PC's and also means that the Main PC will need to be on for others to print. Just a note for the future.

How do I set up a home network without internet?


Hi

By default, your wireless connection for your 2wire 1000HW is enabled.Assuming that everything is installed properly in your laptop ie wireless cards etc. than you can view your wireless connection using Dell Wireless connection tool and HP wireless tool. Your know its your network when it says 2wirexxxx {x=combined numbers}. To locate the built-in, 10-digit wireless encryption key for your system, please look at the bottom of the product [2wire] near the bar code label - looks like this : [xxxxxxxxxx].

If you want to access the 2wire Graphic Unit Interface ,you can access it by opening your browser and on your address bar type in homeportal- assuming you are able to connect to your 2wire wirelessly. You can view your network and change you wireless settings. This may also help you :

http://shastademo.2wire.com/rgw3-3/rgw/3-3/homeportal/network/wireless_settings.html

To connect your printer you must have a Print Server [ dep[ends on what model of laserjet you are using } and connected to your printer. Again you will need the encryption key to get it running. You must share your printer on each laptop by going to control panel and share it . In there you willl have the chance to change and modify the settings. You can also use the Windows File and Sharing Wizard. to get it both running.

Hope that would help you a bit. Pls feel free to post your questions in Fixya for further assistance.

Wish you all the best.

Cheers.

Trying to network xp pc to wireless laptop


Right click on the drive you want to share. Ex: C:\Vol-xx = name. In the pop up window click Sharing & Security. This needs done to all the drives you want access too. To share a printer. Everyone must have the printer drivers installed. The Pc that has a direct connection to the printer must also Share the printer on the network. Open Printer & Faxes, highlight the printer you want to share. Click File than click Sharing follow windows instructions.
Small suggestion regards to the wireless side of the network. Suggest you setup security so others close too you can not tap into your network. (common).

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.
