I am installing Kodak ESP-C310 All In One Printer on my home computer. If I want to use this printer for more than one computer (I have 3), do I need to load it on all three? I am using a wireless setup.


For best results, yes. I'll assume you're using a Microsoft operating system. You'll have to "share" the printer from the computer it is connected to by setting the appropriate options in the printer settings. Then, on the other networked computers, you'll have to add a "network printer" and provide the drivers when prompted.

Note: There are other ways to do this as well. For instance, if you router has a usb port, it may be capable of sharing the printer for the network or if all your computers have wifi NICs, that printer supports simply browsing for it wirelessly and will install itself if you're running Windows Vista and up. XP will probably still ask for the driver.

Please check our network connection advance properties and make sure that the proper services are enable "File Sharing", "Network Sharing". Once you have done this reboot. Next you will need to check on the vista machine the security settings of the windows firewall. It's likely you will need to reduce the level of protection and allow the network protocols.

No net connectivity


If you encounter difficulties accessing computers that are visible on the network map, make sure the computer being accessed has an account with the same name/password as the system connecting to it uses to login.

To set up Network Sharing between XP and Windows Vista, please note that File and Printer Sharing is different in Windows Vista than from the setup in Windows XP.


On a computer running Windows XP, click Start, click Control Panel, and then click Network Connections.
Click Local Area Network Connection, click Properties, and then view the list of items used by the network connection.
Ensure that the Link-Layer Topology Discovery Responder check box is selected.

Can't find printer on network


1.How are you attaching to the network printer from your daughters computer? IP address, or by the name of the printer...Also make sure you check you are attaching to the network printer, and not local printer.

2. Install the Microsoft TCP/IP version 6 protocol on both computers by clicking install on your LAN properties, then restart PC. This should work!

Instaling network printer from main computer


On the Vista computer, right click on printer, go to sharing tab, click on Additional Drivers button. On the next screen you need to select Windows XP.

This will ensure that whenever a print request is queued from any computer that runs on Windows XP, it will process the request on the Vista machine.

You should also try to ping the printer. You should also check if the computer is able to share files with Vista machine.

Vista wireless networking with 2 computers cabled to router


To disable the ( redundant ) wireless connection, right click ' My network places' click properties, in the dialog right click your wireless connection, click disable. YMMV in Vista. There are several ways to disable an adapter, might try Windows Help.
If your "someone" installed Norton AV that's what degraded your performance. Remove it and pick one of the free ones like Avast or AVG. If the previous AV wasn't removed properly you're going to see a slowdown.
