    What Operating Systems (Win98, XP etc.) are on the PC's?

    Do you get any error messages at all?

    Can you see the printer in the 'Control Panel' 'Printers' on the PC using wireless, and does it indicate 'Ready' ?

Why when wireless printing using same hardware worked fine, now not responding.


Unless it is the EXACT same wireless router from your service provider it could be the router. I mean that if you have moved and your provider gave you another router (same make and model) then it could be the wireless router. I struggled with this myself and after having the provider change the router, the problem disappeared immediately with the printer connection. The problem was only with the printer (HP in this case) as other wireless devices worked okay. Strange but true.

Check that you do not have a firewall working. Set the printer by inputting the Ip or printer name when installing, do not browse for printer.

Why does my printer not print the imagine


Does it even try to print, or does it just sit there? If it tries to print and nothing appears on the paper, try removing the cartridges and re-installing them. (Note, however, that if they are not completely seated the print heads dry out and you may get streaky printing and will have to replace them.)

If the printer does not respond at all there are two possibilities. First, you need a new printer. Second, the computer is not communicating with the printer. This can be caused by bad wired or wireless connection or by the printer setting in your PC.

You can always take the PC and printer to a computer store and have them figure out which of these possibilities is the right one.

How to make a printer wireless


Plug into a wireless print server.If your printer has a USB port, you can plug in a wireless print server, a small box into which you can connect your printer. The advantage of investing in a print server is that you don't have to connect the printer to a PC, which means you can use your laptop and print anywhere in your home.
.tmnAdsenseContainer{margin-bottom:10px;} We found plenty of print servers in the $50 range on Newegg.com, although many of the models cost closer to $75 or $100). Before you buy, make sure the print server is compatible with your printer (the printer's written materials are less likely to specify compatibility with print servers).
During the setup, you will have to plug the printer into the printer server, and connect that to the router using an Ethernet cable. Meanwhile, you'll have to install software on your computer and configure the connection, as you would when setting up a router.

Sometimes this problem occures when you install a later model wireless router.
Try installing the latest Wireless card driver on the XP computer and the LAN card drivers on the other computers except the MAC.

Hello Christina,

There are two sections to look into. 1) Device Settings. 2) Printing Preferences.

Between the two, I confident that you can find the solutions.
