    no this did not work turning off 1st computer.. it is a LAN network for home...just a Linksys, printer and two laptops...but still can't get second laptop connected to printer wirelessly...AND cannot get hold of EPSON as their line is ALWAYS busy...so the 2nd laptop is currently NOT wireless to the printer which is a hassle as it has to remain "wired" to it...not very convenient...So if we cannot solve this we may ask for the $12.99 back and take the printer back and get HP like we have always had...
    thank you for your help..

Are you using the ethernet port on the router? In that case only one other device through Wi Fi. To get more than one device on WiFI you have to give up the ethernet connection.

Hello.

If your printer is connected via USB to the 1st computer, give the 1st computer a share name and thats the name your 2nd computer looks for.

If the 2nd computer can't find the 1st computer (via share name), first temporarily disable your firewall and anti-virus software on both computers, since those software apps can interfere with access.

Hope this helps.

    Hello, again.

    You said the 1st computer was set up as "shared", so that led me to believe that the printer was physically connected to that computer.

    So, your 1st computer can print to your wirelessly set up printer, but the 2nd cannot. No problems for the 2nd computer to access your network wirelessly, just cannot see (?) the printer or cannot connect to the printer ? Or, problems accessing your network as well ?


  • NinaE Jan 31, 2010

    Hi, Sarah.

    I'm baffled by this one - that your 2nd laptop can access your wireless network, but not your printer, although your first computer can access both. And, your printer is set up wirelessly. Any change if you power off your first computer ?? What network ?

I just switched to a different internet provider. Alexa says she is having trouble connecting. What should I do?


You probably need to connect to your new wireless router.

Open the Alexa app.
In the Alexa app, open the left navigation panel and then select Settings.
Select your device and then select Update Wi-Fi. If you're adding a new device to your account, select Set up a new device instead.
On your Echo device, press and hold the Action button for five seconds. The light ring changes to orange, and your mobile device connects to your Echo device. A list of available Wi-Fi networks appear in the app.
Note: The Alexa app may ask you to manually connect your device to your Echo device through your Wi-Fi settings.
Select your Wi-Fi network and enter the network password (if required). If you don't see your Wi-Fi network, scroll down and select Add a Network (for hidden networks) or Rescan.
Optional - Save your Wi-Fi password to Amazon: Any Wi-Fi passwords saved during setup automatically appear when you connect a new Alexa device to the same Wi-Fi network. The password is also remembered if you switch between saved Wi-Fi networks. For more information, go to Saving Your Wi-Fi Passwords to Amazon FAQs.
Optional - Connect to a public network: Enter any required information if you are connecting to a public network that requires a web browser to sign in, like a school or hotel. The information could be a pre-shared password, room number, or just a button to accept conditions for using the network. This information cannot be saved to Amazon. Contact the network owner for more information.
Select Connect. After your device connects to your Wi-Fi network, a confirmation message appears in the app.

My wifi stop working,i dont know why???


Solutions to Common Android WI-Fi ProblemsFriends of mine who use an Android come over to me usually with problems related to their devices' Wi-Fi connectivity. Moreover, it's not a single isolated issue. There are all kinds of them they bring up. I usually fix their problem after few troubleshoots but today while I was fixing a problem on my device, I realized that it could happen to any one - even to my readers on Guiding Tech. Hence we are going to discuss four of the most common Android Wi-Fi problems and see the probable causes and solutions to them.
Android Cannot Scan a Wi-Fi Network Reason
There may be two reasons as to why your Android cannot scan a network automatically. The first reason may be that the network you are trying to connect to could be Ad-Hoc in nature. As most of the Android phones are not configured to work on Ad-Hoc networks but on access points, they don't scan them.
The second reason may be that the Wi-Fi network you are trying to connect to might be hidden for security reasons.
Solution
By default, Android does not support Ad-Hoc Wi-Fi network but many developers patch the wpa_supplicant file on Android in order for them to work. If you do a quick Google search you will be able to find if there's a fix available for your device but the fix can only be performed on a rooted phone. Furthermore, don't forget to back up your original wpa_supplicant file if at all your phones goes into foreclose or boot loops.
ad55c1b5-6c69-4c6f-bbc4-42d71b214047.png
If the problem is with the hidden network, you can try to add the network manually. In Android Wi-Fi settings open menu and tap to add a network manually. You must enter the correct SSID and authentication type and password in order to connect to the network. If both the credentials are correct, the Android phone will be able to connect to the network.
Wi-Fi Keeps Disconnecting Frequently Reason
The most obvious reason for the problem may be with the Wi-Fi Sleep Policy which disconnects your Wi-Fi every time your Android goes to sleep to save your battery's juice.
Solution
To manage Wi-Fi Sleep Policy, open Advance Wi-Fi settings on Android and tap the option Keep Wi-Fi on during sleep. Here, check the option Always to enjoy an uninterrupted connectivity, but you will have to compensate it with your battery life.
75ca1d6c-6a65-4f45-a239-1e913ecb07bc.png
If you are using any third-party app to save your battery, check if it's controlling your Wi-Fi and other radio services and configure accordingly.
Obtaining IP Address Infinite Loop Reason
I don't know the exact reason behind this, but it might be a bug in Android. I have seen many people getting this problem, and it gets kind of annoying when the problem does not gets fixed even after restarting the device.
Solution
First of all, you must restart your Wi-Fi router and see if that helps. Many people say that resetting the phone to factory state works but that's not an appropriate solution. Wi-Fi Fixer is an amazing Android app that can help you here. The app resets your Wi-Fi system files (same as when you reinstall the Wi-Fi drivers in Windows, or you disable and enable the Wi-Fi adapter) and services and helps you to connect to the network and obtain the IP address.

    wifi-fixer.png If you know the range of IP address the router is broadcasting, you may configure your Android to use static IP address while connecting to the network.
    Can't Connect to Internet using Wi-Fi Reasons
    There may be several reasons as to why you are not able to connect to the internet even when you are connected to the Wi-Fi. The reasons may be:
    • The router is not broadcasting internet services.
    • The IP address or the gateway is wrong.
    • Problem with the DNS settings.
    Solutions
    You may use another device to check if the router is actually broadcasting internet. Also you can configure the IP address, the gateway and DNS manually to connect as their might be problems with DHCP.
    Conclusion These are pretty much most of the Android problems one might encounter on his device and the probable solution one can try to fix the problem. I don't guarantee that you will fix the problem but it's a good start nonetheless. And most of the solutions should work actually.


Thanks .

MP620 WIRELESS SET UP


1. Determine the Type of Wireless Printer

You'll be using the wireless router to connect the new wireless printer to your home network so make sure the router is up and running. Most new computers and wireless printers are equipped with either Bluetooth or Wi-Fi capabilities. If your printer is not wireless you can purchase a wireless card that plugs into a USB port.
2. Select the Location of the Wireless Printer

The wireless printer should be set up in a place at home or in the office that is accessible to everyone and where there is ample space for paper, printer ink and other supplies. If you are using Bluetooth wireless you may want to give this some thought since Bluetooth printers have a smaller wireless range than Wi-Fi printers.
3. Enable Printer Sharing

The server computer's operating system must be informed that the printer you are adding to the network is a wireless printer. (The server computer is the one the printer is connected to.)

In Windows Vista, this is done by accessing the network settings in the Control Panel and then activating file and printer sharing in the local area network settings.

For Windows XP go to Start, Control Panel, Printers and Other Hardware, "View installed printers or fax printers." Right-click on your printer and select "Sharing", then select "Share this Printer." Give the printer a name and click OK.
4. Add the Wireless Printer to any other Computers on your Network

The other computers on the network must also be set up for using the wireless printer. To do this in Windows Vista, open the Control Panel in the classic view and then open Printers. Right click on the printer that is going to be shared, and then open Properties. In Properties, check the box that allows the printer to be a shared device.

For Windows XP you will need to do the following:

  • Open Control Panel, Printers and Faxes, and click on "Add a printer."
  • This will take you into a wizard to find the printer you shared previously.
  • Click Next until you are at the Local or Network Printer page.
  • Select "A network printer or a printer attached to another computer" and click Next.
  • Now click "Browse for a printer" and click Next. This will display your workgroup, the PCs connected to it and any printers that are attached to them.
  • Click on the wireless printer you shared earlier and click Next. [This should install the driver automatically. If not, you may need to get the CD software that came with the printer.]
  • Now click Yes to make the wireless printer the default printer for this PC (or No if the computer already has one attached to it).
  • Click Finish.
5. Troubleshooting Wireless Printers

Both this computer and the one the wireless printer is attached to might need a reboot. If you're not seeing the computer it is attached to, double-check that all computers have the same network name: go to Control Panel, Performance & Maintenance, "See basic information about your computer." From there click on "Computer Name" and your workgroup will be displayed.

If you're not seeing the printer, make sure it's switched on. If printer still doesn't work, you may need to install the printer driver using the software CD that came with it.

Setup a new network under Control Panel > Network and Sharing Center > Setup a New connection > Setup a new Network. You need to make the Desktop as an Access point network.

The best bet would to pick up a cheap netgear or linksys router for better stability and ease of access.

In order to set wireless printer in Windows 7-based PC, you need to position it in a central location away from metal objects. Now, find out if it a Bluetooth or Wi-Fi as most new printers are equipped with either Bluetooth or Wi-Fi technologies. After, that enables the sharing of your printers by informing computer’s operating system about adding printer to its network. Also, install drivers for the same. Hence, in this way you can set up wireless printer on Windows 7-based system. You can also set up other computer systems in the network for using wireless printer get more information for Set Up Wireless Printer on Windows 7 .

I can't get it to print wirelessly with my airport express. What do I do? Does Canon Smartbase mp360 not print wirelessly?


You have to setup this printer as a Network printer, the PC using it, must Browse for the PC on the network. Setting up a wireless printer is not a complicated matter to accomplish. It can take as short as five steps to get the whole thing done.
Step #1: The Location of the Wireless Printer.
Since more than one computer would be making use of the wireless printer. It makes sense to figure out the best place to put it. The wireless printer should be set up at a place at home or in the office that is accessible to everyone and where there is ample space for paper, printer ink and other such paraphernalia.
Step #2: Bluetooth or Wi-Fi?
There are two connectivity choices when it comes to setting up a wireless printer, and these two choices are none other than Bluetooth or Wi-Fi. Most new computers and printers nowadays are equipped with either Bluetooth or Wi-Fi capacities, but if not, it is easy to get a wireless card that can be plugged using a USB port. The only difference is that Bluetooth printers has a smaller range than Wi-Fi.
Step #3: Enable Printer Sharing
The server computer’s operating system must be informed that the printer that will be added to its network is a wireless printer. In Windows Vista, this is done by accessing the network settings in the Control Panel and then activating file and printer sharing in the local area network settings.
Step #4: Share the Printer.
The other computers on the network must also be set up for using the wireless printer. To do this in Windows Vista, open the Control Panel in the classic view and then open Printers. Right click on the printer that is going to be shared, and then open Properties. In Properties, check the box that allows the printer to be a shared device.
Step #5: Continuous Troubleshooting
Wireless networks are prone to interruptions, and so it is important for whoever it is that is maintaining the wireless network at home or at the office to keep the connections to the wireless printer active. Nothing is more irritating that setting up a wireless printer and then encountering numerous glitches afterwards.

I am wanting to hook up 2 Computers to one Printer


Using a Cross over LAN cable, connect the two machines and use the assistant for home networks in windows to set them up. Then install the printer and share it on the network. On the other computer, go to add new printers, select network printers and install it.
After that you'll be able to print from both pc's.
If you have only one network adapter on each computer and are using it to connect to the internet, you'll need to get an ethernet switch to connect all the LAN cables.
