Sounds like you already have it printing wirelessly. Just make sure that you install the software in the laptops you want to use. When you install the software have the laptops hardwired into the network. Once they are set up hard wired they find the printer ok wirelessly but they don't like to set up wirelessly. Install the software as a network printer. If they still can't find the printer wirelessly after a hard install check in the laptops the TCP/IP address for the printer to make sure they match.

All you need is to configure the IP address on the desire laptop that you want to hook the printer.
Check the printer preferences for colour print.

How to connect wi-fi printer to laptop


With a wireless router that you probably have for you laptop. Printer should be connected directly to the router, and all PC's in you home can use it as a network printer, so everyone can print on it. Whether connection between printer and router is Wi-Fi or cable is of no importance.

The procedure of installation may be a little boggling for someone doing it the first time. As I remember you should start installing driver CD on you laptop, and it will tell you when to connect printer to it, and when the basic part of installation is over. This way you can use printer connected directly to you laptop via USB.

Next it will offer you to set wireless parameters. If your router is set to automatic (DHCP) it will ask you to register printer on your home network and you must enter your wireless network SSID and password somewhere in your printer. It should not be too hard. You just have to fallow the instructions.

If your friend comes over with a laptop and joins your wireless network, he still can't use your printer, because he's hasn't got drivers installed, so you'll have to do that part all over again, for every PC.

How to conect a printer


Install a printer on a home network

There are two basic ways to make a printer available to the PCs on your home network:

  • Attach it directly to one computer and share it with all the others on a network.

  • Connect the printer as a stand-alone device on the network itself.

This article explains how to do both in Windows. However, you should always first consult the information that came with your model for specific installation and setup instructions.
Setting up a shared printer

Traditionally, the most common way to make a printer available to a home network has been to connect it to one of the PCs and then tell Windows to share it. This is called a shared printer.

The advantage of sharing a printer is that it works with any USB printer. The downside? The host PC always has to be powered up, otherwise the rest of the network won't be able to access the shared printer.

In previous versions of Windows, setting up a shared printer could sometimes be tricky. But a new home networking feature in Windows 7 called HomeGroup has greatly simplified the process.

When a network is set up as a homegroup, printers and certain files are automatically shared. (To learn more about what homegroups do and how to use them, go to the Windows website and search for "HomeGroup: Recommended links.")

If you've already set up a homegroup and want to access a shared printer from another homegroup PC, just follow these steps:
To manually connect to a homegroup printer

  1. On the computer the printer is physically connected to, click the Start button ?id=4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33, click Control Panel, type homegroup in the search box, and then click HomeGroup.

  2. Make sure the Printers check box is selected. (If not, select it, and then click Save changes.)

  3. Go to the computer you want to print from.

  4. Click to open HomeGroup.

  5. Click Install printer.

  6. If you don't already have a driver installed for the printer, click Install driver in the dialog box that appears.
    Note

    • After the printer is installed, you can access it through the Print dialog box in any program, just like a printer that's directly connected to your computer. The computer that the printer is connected to must be turned on to use the printer.

Setting up a network printer

Network printers-devices designed to connect directly to a computer network as a stand-alone device-were once found mostly in large offices. No more.

Printer makers are increasingly offering inexpensive inkjet and laser printers that are designed to serve as network printers on home networks. Network printers have one big advantage over shared printers: they're always available.

There are two common types of network printers: wired and wireless.

  • Wired printers have an Ethernet port, which you connect to your router or hub via an Ethernet cable.

  • Wireless printers typically connect to your home network using Wi-Fi or Bluetooth technology.

Some printers offer both options. The instructions that came with your model should tell you exactly how to install it.

  1. ?id=microsoft.windows.resources.shellexecutetopiciconClick to open Devices and Printers.

  2. Click Add a printer.

  3. In the Add Printer wizard, click Add a network, wireless or Bluetooth printer.

  4. In the list of available printers, select the one you want to use, and then click Next.

  5. If prompted, install the printer driver on your computer by clicking Install driver. ?id=18abb370-ac1e-4b6b-b663-e028a75bf05b If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

  6. Complete the additional steps in the wizard, and then click Finish.
    Tips

    • Make sure that you have permission to use these printers before adding them to the computer.

    • You can confirm the printer is working by printing a test page. For details, see Print a test page

Just got a HP laptop for work that's running windows 7. It won't find our HP 5610 printer at home even tho I've downloaded the right driver


Is the printer directly connected to the laptop by a USB cable? Try a new cable. Check that the USB ports work by plugging in a known working device.

If you are using a print server or USB hub, try a direct connection. (If networked, check that your firewall isn't blocking the access by disabling it. If the print server is another computer, make sure that computer's firewall isn't blocking the laptop (trust level between the two machines).

I hope this helps.

Remote printing was working and then it stopped.


If this is a network printer. You can reinstall the drivers that came with the printer as a local printer, then go into control panel open the 'printers and faxes' right click on the printer that you reinstalled, 'properties' go to ports tab, select add port, -> 'standard tcp/ip port' -> 'new port' -> next -> put in the ip address for the printer, it will be the scheme of you subnet for example if your ip address for your computer is set to 192.168.1.1 you would use the ip address for the printer port of 192.168.1.2. after that is done press next-> after that you will be set as a network printer. Try to print a test page.

If this does not work, you can install the printer locally on a separte computer, such as your home pc, and make the printer a share. Then simply add the share printer on your laptop. for example; after you install the printer on your home pc, go under control panel, -> right click the printer -> sharing-> enable printer sharing... -> Next -> You will be prompted on the sharing tab-> select 'share this printer' -> type a share name, such as 'Lexmark2' -> click ok. at this point you will see a hand under the printer, showing it is shared.

Note: you will need to get the computer name of the pc that the printer is locally installed, your home pc. for this example lets name the pc 'home' you can find the name of your pc by right clicking on my computer and select properties. go to the computer name tab.
also remember we named the printer share 'lexmark2'

now go to your labtop, go to the control panel and select 'printers and faxes' select add a printer on the right column. a windows will pop up, click next -> select 'A network printer, or printer.....' click on the radio buttion that reads 'Connect to this printer (or to browse.....' should be the 2nd option. this is where you are going to use the computer name and printer name.

put in

\homelexmark2

click next -> then finish

print a test page, from your labtop.

If you have a plasma, or otherwise HDTV display, what you would do is send you information in two different directions.

Connect the video directly to the display. Connect the audio through your home theater, and set both units accordingly.

Getting my printer to work


Make sure that the settings for file and printer sharing is enabled on both your computers. If the laptop is connecting to the wireless network of your router, you need to make sure that they can communicate fine. Turn off the firewalls on both computers then set them on the same workgroup. :)

Hope this helps.
