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.

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.

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.

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

Setting up printer on home network


Because your printer is not either wireless or network capable, the only way to get the results you need is to purchase a usb print server, hook it to your router, set it up through it's management console, and if your router is wireless, you can hook up to your router and print to your printer with your desktop turned on or off.

Wireless printing from laptop


If you have your laptop and pc networked you can simply "share the printer....If not, you have to do that first......then "Right click" on your canon printer icon in "Printers and Faxes", left click "sharing", select "share this printer and name it whatever you want.
Then go to "add printers" (on your Laptop), "add printer" (the add printer wizard comes up), click "next", slect "a network printer..", select "browse for Printer". In the next box you should see your home network, you may have to click on this to search for available resources, then you should see your printer, double click on it to transfer the files to your laptop. You can use this process for any and all printers you may have conected.
You are now sharing the printer from your PC, so keep in mind that it has to be "ON" in order to print from your laptop.
