It is not wireless capable out of the box. However, it has 2 free PCI slots for an internal wireless card and several USB ports for a USB wireless adapter.

I hope this helps.

Did the DX4200-09 come with wireless capabilities


Sorry. That model desktop computer did not ship with wireless capabilities. You can generally purchase a little wireless USB dongle online or at Best Buy, Walmart, etc. for around $20.

I have an HP Photosmart 5 years old and no trouble till now. Got Check colour cartridge error 3/4 weeks ago, downloaded full feature software drivers form hp site and fixed it. yesterday got message again....


The reset that you have done is called semi full reset. And when you do that and the printer is connected wirelessly, it will be disconnected to your router. But if your connected hardwire you just have to add devices on the printers and faxes window. Since you have already installed the software successfully the only problem is getting it connected to the computer or router(if the printer is capable of wireless connection). Try running the downloaded software again and there should be an option that will ask you if you would like to add a printer. From there just follow the instructions and the software will be the one to connect the printer to your computer. Hope this helps. Send me a personal message if this would not help you. I just have to be certain if you have a wireless or hardwire connection.

Is Sony Vaio PCV 6603 wireless enabled to connect to net via router?? If it isn't, is it possible to "upgrade" it to be wireless enabled?


It may be wireless enabled. Even if it isn't, then you may install wireless NIC (network interface card) that will help to retrieve the wireless signals.

So how is the other computer supposed to work on the internet, if this wireless router is hooked up with the current modem? If I need another part, then why did I spend $150, and not get all I needed??


Before you bought the wireless router, you probably had one computer directly hooked up to the modem (the box you got from your internet provider). The wireless router should have come with a cable similar to the one that had previously connected the modem to your computer.
When you use a router, the original cable from the modem is disconnected from the back of your computer and is instead plugged into the INPUT of your router. The cable that came with the router is then plugged in to the original computer.
So far, so good.
Now, when you want to add additional computers to the internet, you can do it in two ways: either wirelessly (which means the other computers need to have wireless capability already built in - which is the case with laptop and notebook computers, or they have to have a wireless card installed); or you have to purchase another cable (like the one that came with your router) to directly connect the other computer to the router.
The only time an additional cost would be involved is if you needed to purchase another cable (for a direct connection), or if your other computer doesn't have wireless capability.
Does that answer your question?

Can I print via my wireless network with HP OfficeJet 6310xi?


Nothing helps. Print servers are capable of connecting a multifunction printer for printing capabilities only. For scanning, you have to connect directly to the Computer or by a Multifunction printer with wireless capabilities.
