How to I set up my dell laptop in my house to print wirelessly from a canon mp780 printer?


Basicallyif you have a wireless router with several laptops and desktop PCs, which canaccess the Internet at the same time, then you have working network withthe laptop and PC.First makesure the laptop and PC have the same Workgroup name(it may already have Workgroup as the Workgroup name, you can change it if you wish). To changethe Workgroup name open Control Panel - System -click on Computer Name tab - click Change and you can change the Computername then select Workgroup and enter orchange the Workgroup name - click OK and OKagain.Nextenable Sharing on both the PC and laptop open My Computer - right click onthe C Drive - click on Sharing tab - tick Sharing this folder on thenetwork - add a Share name to identify the computer/folder (eg Cdrive on PC).If you donot enable sharing on the drives or folders then they will not be available tothe computers on the network.If you havemore drives, then repeat this for the other hard drive and or CD or DVDdrives.Re-boot thecomputers and you will be able to see the computers on your network through MyNetwork Places.

Trying to connect a wired network wirelessly to a router


No. You'll need to run a "cross-over" Ethernet cable from one of the "LAN" ports on the "downstairs" router, connecting to the "WAN" port on another router that you will need to buy, and place "upstairs", and connect the 4 devices to the 4 "LAN" ports.

Or, run a long "straight-through" Ethernet cable from your DSL-modem (or cable-modem) that is "downstairs", and move your wireless router "upstairs", and connect the 4 devices to the router's "LAN" ports.
Your laptop "downstairs" should still be able to connect (wirelessly) to the wireless-router that is "upstairs".

Printer and computer no communication


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.

Setting up a wireless printer


Hi Rob,

The situation seems very vague, First off, you have to identify if you're using this for a corporate environtment usage or are you using this on a home network? Next question would be,if the network you're connecting the dell wireless adaptor to has reserved the ip address for the allocation of the printer. If not, then there are a few possible reasons for your situation:

  • IP Mismatch. If you're connecting the dell wireless adaptor directly to your printer and network, ensure that the IP ADDRESS of the printer is matching that of the ipaddress of the printer driver in your computer (Control panel>Printers>Right click printer>properties)

  • Driver Error. Download the latest driver for your model printer and install it on your notebook. Once this is done, make sure you are able to "see" the printer by printing a test page.

  • Not conencted to the netwrok. Sometimes, this happens when you're not connected to the netwrok (but you think you are just casue you see a "connected" icon). Make sure you're conencitng to YOUR network everytime you reboot and not mooch on some other netwrok.
Hope this helped. Please do let me know how it goes. Thank you.
