Step 4): Right Click on the printer icon whic you want to share and select Sharing.. from the pop-up menu appeared.
It will open your printer properties.
Step 5): On sharing tab click on Share this printer radio button and give a Share name also tick the list in the directory.
Step 5): Clik on Ok

Now your printer is ready to share to other computer in your network.

Step 6): In the second lap navigate Navi gate Start -> Printer and Faxes
It will open the Printer and Faxes window including all your printer installed.
Step 7): Click on Add printer to left panel of the window
Step 8): Click Next
Step 9): There will be option Local or Network select Network and click Next

Wireless switch for an HP Compaq Presario CQ60-250DX Laptop


Hello
Can you be more specific on your problem?
I figure, if the wirelss switch wont go on, perhaps has to do with any office installation, ...or the botton is broke.

How to connect 2 computers to a dlink 4 port kvm switch?


The unit comes with all the cables in order to connect up to four computers to one KVM switch. If you're only using two computers, then you'll only need to connect one computer to Computer 1, and the second computer to Computer 2. The KVM will recognize that only two devices are connected, and generally skip the inputs for computers 3 and 4 until they have a device connected.

Have a GCS634U KVM that keeps failing to switch. acts like it lost the keyboard


This GCS634U was designed to work with USB keyboards and mice.

First, you need to make sure that your using a direct USB keyboard (no PS/2 to USB adapter).

Second, connect the keyboard directly to the computer and make sure that it's working correctly.

Third, check the connection between the KVM switch and the computers. Try to connect the USB cables of your KVM into different USB ports of the computers.

Last, try to use different USB keyboard to see if the issue is the KVM or the keyboard.

Try to power cycle the KVM switch. Disconnect the KVM from the computers and make sure that there's no even one cable connected to the computers.

Leave the KVM switch disconnected for 10 minutes, then plug it back in. Reboot one computer first and wait until it's fully rebooted. Turn on the second one untill all computers are fully booted up.

If same problem occur, then you need to contact IOGEAR and have them RMA the device.

Thank you and good luck!

KVM Switch 4110 8 port


so is the KVM (control side, PS2 mouse / kbd>??)
or are all PS2 ports wired to adaptors,? i cant guess this nor what was used before, no history stated.
what was there before, this act?
and what now?
Ill assume worse cases (tossed a coin)
18 (16+2) adapters now. all devices are USB but KVM
ok.?


what mode fails, both the KVM pushbotton switch and or the hot key commands on the kbd?
Oops no manual button as seen on modern KVM.

KVMs are very complex. the hard part is the vast number of different PC.
USB , PS2, VGA, DVI and HDMI.. yah,..
OK 16 +2=18 x ps2, and 9 VGA ports. it is.
NO KVM does it all, ,, old KVM' do NOT work , on new computers, all folks know this , if they tried. or took readings to learn why it fails.
I bet power to the KVM is dead., no LED./
no manual button ,oops.
pin 4 PS2 reads 5vdc and connected up, same?
we use breakout boxes (DIY) to test ports connected.'

that Compaq is very old and no support now, no books.
why not ask at real HP, maybe some old guy there can dig it lost books>
40 KVM? that what you said, really? (or 40/8=5 kvm)?
my guess is the adaptor does not work or power issues
KVM >>PS2>>>ADapt>>> USB.(server) (usb 1,2,or 3 at server?)
The KVM in most cases, here, steals power from PS2 ports but not this KVM , its better.
i'd bet that adaptor cant do that.
(is the caps lock key working on the KBD and laser LED glowing on said mouse?

ask here, real HP.
lets see tests:
1: pin 4 ps2 5vdc?
2: mouse glows?
3: keyboard led , caps lock toggles? (glows)
4: lost the hot key commands (y/n)

one other problem is the BIOS in the server may not like your adaptor at all. When BIOS scans the keyboard. it expects a ID response if missing or grabled, it drops that device port.


https://h30434.www3.hp.com/


btw, one way to cure this, is run headless server software
end KVM for ever.

i run a LAMP server, that comes in the box, no kvm no any thing on ports. it has a web page to go to and do service that way.
port IP+:12321
modern ways work best.
in a server farm, a keyboard/mouse/monitor on rolling cart
for the super sick servers is best...

the other problem is USB only PC or server
does not scan PS2 ports, it has none
so if the adaption fails, at boot time, all is lost.
(BIOS reports connected devices to the OS)(unstated by you)so if the report fails, problems happen
for sure after the boot.

this device is s business device, now ("Enterprise)
the posts on it are like 10 years ago. all links to books now dead.
infact the compaq server that had them is turned off. (grin)
here is my search there. Why not ask them?

Try resetting the switch back to its default configuration. It sounds like you have a routing issue within the switch causing your printer not to be seen by your pcs.

Can you connect a pc to the switch just to see if you can ping your printer from there?

HP Compaq Presario V2000 PC drives


There are many Presario V2000 models please use the following link to determine yours. Note there is another link inside for notebook PCs

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/genericDocument?docname=c00004461&product=89327&lc=en&dest_page=product&cc=us

Hopefully you can find your model in the following link

http://h20180.www2.hp.com/apps/Lookup?h_lang=en&h_cc=us&cc=us&h_page=hpcom&lang=en&h_client=S-A-R163-1&h_pagetype=s-001&h_query=presario+v2000

And your NIC driver will be hopefully available in Software & Downloads after choosing the Windows 2003 operating system. -- if that OS is not present, try another OS and check the operating systems as they appear in that specific driver's supported list of operating systems and see if Windows Sevrver 2003 appears.
