Most network printers DON'T require a driver to print via the network, all you have to do is to select it from the printers list when you are sending the print job.

How to install a printer on laptop?


If you don't have the original installation disc, look at the brand and version of your printer. Go to the main website for the manufacturer and search for the version of your printer. There should be a download available. Download this to your laptop. Use a USB cable or the cable that comes with the printer and plug it into your computer and the back of the printer. After you've done this, run the installation software on your laptop and follow the instructions. Unplug when the installation is complete, or if you have wifi and the printer is compatible, follow the instructions to also connect it for wireless printing.

Just bought a Canon MX472 wireless printer and can not connect to my computer


The installation CD you got with the printer will find the printer. However on the printer you have to set it up on your wifi 1st so they are on the same network when the software is looking for it. So go to the printer 1st hit the menu...select network...select scan for networks...select your router...enter your router security code...it will say connected if you done it right....then go to your pc load the software when it ask USB or WIFI select WIFI "wireless" it will then look for your printer

My lexmark x4650 printer is connected to the wifi, but the orange light is blinking. And nothing is able to print. When I look at the printers activity it shows the document that im trying to print but...


When you installed your printer, you had to install the software on your PC. So go to your PC's start menu, go to Programs, select Lexmark software, select Tools and then select Wifi Configuration Utility. It will open a window which will give you step by step instruction on re-configuring your wifi settings. When you are doing this, make sure your printer is connected to your PC via the USB cable.

I lost installation CD so how do I print from my laptop to lexmark x4875 using WiFi?


This is how you can install a printer to be a network printer. Depending on your version of windows determines how your network will work, but for the most part, as long as you have this printer connected to a Windows PC you should be able to set it up to print wirelessly this way.

I want to install the a Lexmark x6575 printer to my computer network by wireless but do not have the installation CD. I have the printer installed on the main computer using a usb cable.


If you haven't configured the printer for wireless connection yet, I suggest you configure it on the main computer first since it's already connected to it. You will have a solid green LED light on on the Wifi indicator of the printer once wireless connection is established. Then download and install the printer software in the other computer. Click on this link for the software: http://bit.ly/bOeC3E . Click on the Microsoft or Macintosh dropdown found below the page to choose the version of your computer's operating system. Then download and install the software. Follow the instructions on the software. Hope this helps. If you need more assistance, leave it as a comment and I'll get back to it. Thanks.

Print from nokia E63 through WIFI


Try connecting your printer directly to the wifi router/switch in a shared network configuration. Then go to your router settings, find the local ip address add this as the 'host'. Your settings should be as follows:


Driver : HP Mobile Printing
Bearer: Socket/HP Jetdirect
Access Piont: My Home Wifi (kaba)
Host : ip address of you printer
user : Blank ( tried my windows username,no use)
port : 9100
Printer Model: Officejet Printers

You will have to reconfigure your drivers on your pc as well. Mine installed as a wireless shared printer even though the printer is not wireless but I have it connected to my wifi switch for sharing and it worked fine.

Good luck

Printing through wireless


hi,

if you had the printer before using the USB cable. then you changed it to wireless, try the ff:

1. re-insert the CD the came with the box, the cd that you used to install the printer Software to your computer.
2. after inserting the cd, it will give you option "add a device".
3. click on that to install the printer driver for WIRELESS.

note: the reason why you cant print, is mainly because the printer driver you have is still for USB connection. so inorder for you to be able to print, you need to install a printer DRIVER for wireless... That should WORK..
