Im trying to connect my printer via wifi but am unable to locate it on my laptop?


The printer itself has to first be configured to connect to your wireless network itself, if you do not have a secured network then the process is usually as simple as going into the menu on your printer and telling it to search for networks, if your network is secured (wireless devices require a password to get internet access) then you will have to enter the password into the printer as well.
hope this was helpful. If you provide the model number of the printer I can walk you through the setup.

Hi, I just purchased a Xerox Work Centre 4118 for my office. I have Windows 7 Professional and am unable to Print via wireless. I receive a message that the Printer is offline. Would you be able to...


http://www.support.xerox.com/support/workcentre-4118/downloads/enus.html

The above links to the drivers page, but unfortunately, I do not see specific Windows 7 drivers for this printer. This means that older XP or the latest drivers from the year 2008 are used in emulation mode, maybe, for Windows 7.

Since this is not a 'new' printer, I gather, it will not guaranteed to work with Windows 7. However, I would try the link above for various drivers which may or may not work on this printer.

The fact that the Printer is shown to be offline, is a bad sign.
I read that the printer in question has the following connectivity:

Connectivity

But, that it doesn't support WiFi.


USB, Parallel, optional 10/100 BaseT Ethernet.

On your Laptop go to Control Panel-> Printers-> and then add printer. Select the option of network printer and search for your printer. If found add it.

Unable to connect to the laptop computers


dear Sure there is, but it's supposed to connect via a LAN switch. Since it worked at your old place, did you miss a step? Was the printer plugged into a router and the computer also plugged into the same router?

Start with the wired network setup section in the quick start guide. It might give you an idea on what to do http://www.brother-usa.com/ModelDocuments/Consumer/Quick%20Setup%20Guide/QSG_MFC_490CW_EN_1578.PDF

Thanks.

Create a local area network


you can get a HP x175 printserver. (not expensive.) and connected it between the printer and the router. that way you don't have to have the desktop on all the time.

How do i build a local area network in windows xp?


On the machine that the printer is connected to go to Start>Control Panel>Printer and Faxes>Right click the Printer that you want to Network and Left Click Sharing> Select the Option to Share the printer and Name it something that you wil remeber. On the Laptop go to printers and Faxes select add new printer and select Network Printer. And Choose the second option Put the Name of the Computer that the printer is connected to and then printer name. Example \\Desktop\HpPhotoSmart 8100. Also you will need to check to make sure that both machines are on the same Domain\Work Group. Go to Start>Control Panel >System>Computer Name Tab ( Here verify the Machines Name)> Join or Change Domain>Put the machines on the same Workgroup if they are not, Do the same on the laptop. To test this, on the laptop go to Start>run and type \\Desktop Name and you should see what is able to be shared. Walk thru the steps above to install the printer on the laptop and have the intall cd in the laptop to install the drivers and you should be good to go. I hope this is understandable. If not feel free to email me at smichael@phoenixschool.net and I will see if I can clarify this for you. Happy networking!

Dell 3000cn Network Connection not working


First of, the ethernet must be 'on'. If dhcp available, set it to auto (or dhcp.. anyways..) and let it reboot, just in case :)
if not, try setting the IP-setting yourself. They should be somewhat similar to the settings on your local computer(s).

To add the printer to your computer, select 'Local' printer and specify 'tcp/ip' as which port its connected to. In the new window the ip to the printer should be entered. :) (at least for XP this is..)

Hope this gave you the correct solution..

• Click Start and then click Control Panel.
• Click Printers and Other Hardware, and then click Printers and Faxes.
• In the Printers and Faxes folder, Click the printer's icon and, in the tasks pane, Click Share This Printer.
• Open the printer's Properties dialog box, and clicked on the Sharing tab.

That's it—the printer is immediately available for other computers to use.

To connect to the printer:
• Open Control Panel, and clicked Printers and Other Hardware.
• Click Add a Printer.
• Instead of adding a local printer, click Printer Connection and then browse the network for the printer.
