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.

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.

Asssuming that your printer has built-in "wireless" capability, and assuming that you have a "wireless" router, and assuming that you have configured a "wireless" network in your home/office, you need to configure the printer to select the name & password of your wireless network, to "connect" the printer to your network.

Printer won't work on wireless home network after being installed on laptop. We have installed it on two different laptops and selected it and it still won't print from either????? Any ideas would be...


Usually this is a networking and firewall problem. Is the computer that is physically connected to the printer set to allow sharing the printer? Have you set the name of the printer to be exactly the same on all three computers? If you are using a better firewall than the basic one in Windows XP, have you set that to accept network traffic from the other computers in your home network? (This has to be done on all of the computers on the network so that they are in the same Workgroup.) Check that you allow bidirectional network traffic.

Can I set up a wireless connection between my laptop & printer?


You would attach the printer to the desktop pc and share it out with Sharing & Security. Once your wireless laptop is connected to same network, you will need to go to Start => Printers and Faxes
Then, click Add Printer, then select Network Printer and hit Next. Hit next again and it will look for any printers on the network. Depending on your os and setup, printer should be in the list. Once it is found, highlight it and press Next > and follow the remaining two prompts, finally hit finish. Reply back if you are having a problem setting it up and I can furthe assist you and/or logon remotely to watch or give a hand. - Dan Maresca Jr
