Question about Toshiba Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

I have a Canon Pixma ip4500 installed as a local printer on a PC desktop(O/S Win XP Pro 32 bit) wich is shared on a wireless network. I have added a new laptop (Toshiba Sat Pro L500 64 bit) to the network. No problems seeing the network or printer, but when I try to use printer on laptop it asks for a 64bit driver. I have downloaded and installed new drivers and it still will not load printer. (installing printer on laptop and it works just fine so a driver is there) Any suggestions?

Problem is the 64 bit driver running in conjunction with a 32 bit driver on a shared resource is just not going to cut the cheese. You going to have to decide weather witch computer your going to print from or get a print server to do that communications to and from the both computers.

But to share a 32 but over a 64 bit over a network segment is just not going to cut it. Would suggest all 32 but systems or all 64 bit systems or print server.


thanks hope this will help please do click the accept button for my efforts.

    Thanks for the "not so good news" My long range plan is to update other laptops on network to Win 7 64 bit but not until I feel comfortable with the new system. I may be cynical, but once bitten twice shy with new O/S. I will look at the print server suggestion but I do not wish to load up my small network with hardware.if there is another way.

    Regards

    Other ways is print servers there only what $35-60 bucks, because you just cannot share a printer one one computer and expect it to print with a 64 bit os.



    Now there is a router from apple called the express where you can hook up the printer to it but that even is $99 alone. So I wish there was another way,

Is there a way I can print wireless from my laptop through the desktop attached to the Canon Pixma MX310 printer?


Yes.
The desktop and laptop both need to be attached to the same network.

On your desktop:
Go to Control Panel, Printers and Faxes
Right click on your printer, and click on "Sharing"
Share the printer on your network

On your laptop:
Go to Control Panel, Printers and Faxes
"Add Printer"
Choose a "Network attached Printer"
Browse for the printer, and add in.

How do i share this printer from win xp to win vista? i have 2 computers side by side and want the printer to serve both computers?


Easiest way is to install it on one computer, then make sure it is shared with all.
On the other computer, do a search for printers on the first computer, and install it on the second one.
It should be literally that simple, so long as there is at least a peer network, at the least, as a common link between both computers.

I need a 64 bit Canon D780 printer driver...where can I download? I went to canon, but their drive is only a 32 bit


Okay so this may not help you now, but I just got a hand me down D780. After much frustration and research here's the solution that I was able to work with. It isn't perfect; but it's something....

So here are the steps for network shared installation; assuming your D780 is installed on an old xp desktop and you're using a Win-7 laptop. If you're using the printer directly on your Win-7 machine, just use the local printer installation after the XP mode has been installed.

1) You'll have to install WinXP mode on Win-7 using the steps listed on this link. If you have a genuine Win-7 copy installed, this download and installation is free, courtesy Microsoft.

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/products/features/windows-xp-mode

2) After installation, you'll have to change network settings for your virtual pc. This step is necessary if you want to be on the same home network and want to see the printer! Never mind if you don't understand this logic. Just follow the steps and you'll do just fine. To change the network settings in vPC: click Tools; click Settings; select Network from left; then for Adapter 1 choose the actual network adapter connected to your router (simply put: select the wireless adapter or wired adapter you're using to connect to your actual router or home network. You can find that from Change Adapter Settings in Network and Sharing.) Click Ok.

3) Now add the printer as local or networked following your usual XP steps. You should be able to see the printer. If not, open a command prompt window, check your ip to make sure you're on same network. If not, or if you don't know how to do that, just type in ipconfig /release enter and then ipconfig /renew enter. Try to connect to the shared printer by pinging the ip of the host computer. If the ping works, you should be able to see the printer then.

Connect printer and use in XP mode. Not the best solution, I know. But it's free and at least lets you print from your laptop, given the circumstances.

Wireless printing


The MP830 does not include the ability to do Wireless Network printing. You can however, connect this printer to one of your Windows or Mac PCs and share it on the network, which is wireless, therefore accomplishing the same thing.

1) Install the Drivers and Software that came with your Printer.
2) Go to the Control Panel > Printers & Faxes
3) Right-click your printer and click "Sharing"
4) Choose Share this Printer, and give it a name.
5) You can then on, use the Add Printer Wizard on any other Windows PC and install it by searching for network printers.

Step 1 is the same for Mac
2) Go to System Preferences > Sharing
3) Check the box for Printer Sharing
4) Any Mac on the network can see it!!
5) Added treat: go to http://apple.com/bonjour to install bonjour for Windows, using this software you can print using any Mac printer on any PC
