For that first make sure that your desktop and laptop in same network.
Then you can use printer with 2 method first connect your printer to directly to 1 computer then you can share that printer from it then you can use your printer in network.
but if your printer supports network then connect your printer to router or switch then set ip settings in printer as your network ip then you can use your printer in network from any computer.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.

if you're running windows 7 sometimes it tries to auto detect the type of network but doesn't ask for a password, when it starts to try to auto detect hit cancel and enter in the password manually.

How do I hook up my linksys to my desk top pc (XP) so I can run my lap top from upstairs


Are you trying to set up router ?
You can set up your router manually, without the CD.
Make sure that your computer is able to go online directly through the modem.
If your computer is able to go online through the modem, that means the modem is working fine.
You will need to connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router.
open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP.

HP812C and/or Epson LX300+ dot matrix Printers installed to a HP V3431 lap top computer would not print.


Download the latest drivers from the manufacturer websites rather then relaying on the old cdroms - they are probarbly outdated and made for XP.
