Hi there, i got a usb air card for my laptop and i want to send out a signal to my belkin wireless router (with a cable) so that it can send out a wireless signal and be able to put my wireless printer on...


Sure, I can help. First off I need to know more information. Are you planning on connecting the printer, through USB, to your laptop then sharing the printer from there to other computers? If so, it is a matter of adding that printer, going into the printer properties, sharing tab, and sharing the printer. Or are you trying to share your printer wirelessly? If so you may need to buy a wireless print server. It acts as a base to share that printer and then allow you to wirelessly find it and connect. If the above doesn't help please tell me the make and model of your printer, laptop, and wireless router.
Best, -Mind

Yes you need to setup the printer as a shared printer using the printer driver CD.
Your shared printer and computer would need to be on your LAN and connected to a wireless router. The laptop will connect to the shares printer via the wireless router and LAN cable to the computer with the shared printer.
Please click on this link and follow my instructions to setup the shared printer.

Cannot share printer w/laptop(wireless)w/ PC


You need to share the printer. Go to your pc and open up the printers (Start button, Printers and Faxes). Right click on your printer that you want to share and then click sharing. Make sure share this printer is checked and list this printer in directory is checked. Now you should see the printer on the laptop when you click the Add printer and choose browse for printers or something to that effect. It will prompt you to install the drivers for this printer on the laptop. Click Yes or OK and you should be good to go. Make sure you have the printer turned on prior to doing any of this. You will also need the PC attached to the printer turned on when printing.

Wireless printing


I assume you have a wireless network set up with a wireless router, since you said you have a wireless laptop.
You need to share the printer on the desktop. You also need to set up both computers to be on the same network (for example, WORKGROUP or MSHOME, or a name of your choosing).Once shared and on the same network, you can go to the laptop and add a printer--just tell it that it is a network printer.
A caution--to work without further hassle, both computers need to be running the same version of Windows. If not, you'll need the driver disk for the system on your laptop.

  1. turn on the computer that has the printer attached.
  2. configure computer to share (start/settings/printer-faxes/right click on default printer/select sharing tab/ select share this printer/ apply settings/OK)(This computer must also be connected to the router so your laptop will see it as a network device)
  3. on wireless laptop, add printer
  4. when prompted select network printer.

For my wifes ease of use I purchased for $20.00 network magic which auto configured all my devices and monitored any access to my wireless router so I could choose who could access my open router.

Trying to network xp pc to wireless laptop


Right click on the drive you want to share. Ex: C:\Vol-xx = name. In the pop up window click Sharing & Security. This needs done to all the drives you want access too. To share a printer. Everyone must have the printer drivers installed. The Pc that has a direct connection to the printer must also Share the printer on the network. Open Printer & Faxes, highlight the printer you want to share. Click File than click Sharing follow windows instructions.
Small suggestion regards to the wireless side of the network. Suggest you setup security so others close too you can not tap into your network. (common).

Help please....printer name does NOT appear


You must have a network set up, and you must enable file and printer sharing on the desktop. The laptop and the desktop should be in the same workgroup. Some firewalls will cause this problem.
Start with the network setup wizard in Settings/Network.
