Limited connectivity If you get a 'Limited connectivity" on you wireless connection on your laptop, it means that the wireless card on your laptop probably did not get an IP address from the wireless router. To fix this problem, right click on the wireless icon on the Task bar and then click Repair. This will force the wireless router to issue a IP address to the wireless card on the laptop.
This model printer only has USB printer connection and it cannot be connected to a wireless network directly. If you have a wireless router then you can connect a print server to this HP printer and then connect the print server to the wireless router. This will allow you to print wirelessly yo the HP printer when you configure the printer server and configure the printer driver in the computers to connect to the printer port IP address of the print server.
Check if the printer has a wireless option. Actually this issue is complex. First thing first, you can print wirelessly from your laptop within the WIFI range in a case that your printer do have wireless on in. It is impossible to print wirelessly from the wired printer through LAN.
One thing, I guess you don't have a wireless router. You need to have a wireless router like LINKSYS that is easy to setup then try to connect wirelessly to the wired printer. There I am not too sure if your can do a printing option from your laptop wirelessly.
Lastly, check if you have a ROUTER and need to set it up on your laptop and on the network LAN. You may now have a NETWORK printer in this regards. Thank you.
Yes you will need the desktop on at the entire time. The desktop is acting like a print server to your laptop. If it is turned off your laptop will not be able to share the printer from the desktop. If you want to be able to turn off your desktop you should buy a printer that has networking capablity. There are many different kinds available and even some that are capable of wireless networking. This would be the route to go.
Unless you have a wireless router to conduct traffic, you won't be able to print wirelessly to the AIO 966.
You will need a cable (and it's possible the printer didn't come with one). You'll need a USB A-B cable to do this. You can find one at any office supply store, Radio Shack, Target... it's a common part.
Then with with laptop and printer on, plug in the cable to each and Windows should recognize the device and you'll be able to print.
On the desktop machine - go to the printers folder, right click the
icon for the Laserjet and choose sharing (enable print sharing). You
should be able to name the printer and make it accessible to anyone
within the workgroup. If needed you can run the network setup wizard to change the workgroup names on both machines.
On the laptop go to add new printer and choose network printer, you
should be able to browse to the desktop machine by name and choose the
Laserjet as a printer (whether you want it to be the default is up to
you). The laptop will download and install the drivers from the desktop
pc to the laptop and set the correct network path automatically.
It goes without saying that the desktop machine must be on in order to print from the laptop in this scenario.
You need a network to accomplish this. Most likely a wireless if you are sharing Internet wirelessly already then you have one. If not, you will need to buy some hardware. The 610 did not come standard with any wireless
