    I recently purchased this product but have been having major problems using it. I am sharing one printer on two computers - one computer recognizes the switch no problem, but the other one will not recognise the USB device. It worked in the beginning but not any more. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the software, rebooting my machine but nothing works..

    Old printer died, bought HP Deskjet 4360 and now the Belkin Peripheral Switch 2x1 will not recognize one of the computers.
    Re-installed drivers for belkin 2x1, reinstalled printers, attached a new cable.
    Still does not work.

Hp LaserJet 1020 Not printing in Windows 7 Enterprise N.

Is your computer recognizing it? Try opening your Control Panel in Windows, find Devises and Printers and see if its listed. If not disconnect it from computer, then reboot. Hook it back up again, reboot your computer and see if Windows finds it. Also check to see if the printer is set as default printer. If not set it as such. Try it again.

I want to connect a HP P4014n Laserjet Printer up to another computer but I do not have this installation disc, how can I get this printer working on another computer?

download the driver / software from hp website.
if your system is connected to the network / router, your system should recognize your laptop or another system (same workgroup).
add new printer see if the system recognizes else. add the printer by providing the printer ip address. (test print from your printer and will provide the ip address)

I can't print out with my 1160 and computer

Always try downloading the appropriate driver first, but if it just doesn't work you can always use the postscript version of the HP Laser-jet 4 driver in the Windows driver list and still get most functionality under Vista on almost all HP laser printers.

HP p3005dn does not recognize internet explorer 7.0

We decided to download drivers off the Internet so that at least our printer would show up in the list already on the computer. This HP p3005dn was not in the long list of HPs. Maybe we just bypassed the problem with the I.E. 5.0 and higher issue, but I just needed to get this thing up and running for work.

My computer doesn't see my HP

Did you do a CLEAN download and install with no other programs running including your virus control? You can not get a good install on most drivers with other programs running. At this point you will need to

Turn off the equipment and unplug it.
Go to the toolbar under TOOLS>internet options> delete all your cookies
Turn off any running programs and do a new download.
Save it to your desktop.
Then install it by clicking on it.
Follow the directions carefully.
Plug it into a different USB port when instructed to bring it online.

When reinstalled, restart your computer. It should recognize the driver right away.

I hope this helps.

Serial port on HP Laserjet 4M Plus

buy the adaptor for this these ports are called lpt ports they make adapters to run down to size

they also make a lpt printer port switch this is connected easy connect from printer to switch one printer cord then buy 2 other printer cords to hook to other computers
this is not a converter this is a switch

the printer cords can either be made on spot at most computer store or bought from fry's electronics they always have these in stock the proper lines your looking for
