    I have a slightly different problem. Laptop using Vista OS will not print to either of my wireless printers on either of my wireless networks. So, two different networks (in different locations) and two different printers, and only error messages when printing. Printer is connected directly to the network(no stand alone PC).

    will need some further details. Is is that the Printer is physically connected to the WinXP pc via usb?



    Also, how is your network setup? PC connected to wireless router via cable and laptop wireless?



    Give us some details and I'm sure we can get it sorted out.

If the printer is set up as shared and is attached to a host computer on the network (like mine).

  1. start
  2. network
  3. click on the computer that has the printer that is shared
  4. click on the printer and select connect.
  5. the printer will be displayed on the bottom of the page when it is connected.

My HP7280 printer will not print from my laptop. The hp conifg page states network status oflline. etc. Can you help me?


Did the PC recognised the printer? If YES, then click on "Start" followed by clicking "Printers and Faxes" if your PC's OS is WIN XP or WIN 7 but if your PC's OS is WIN VISTA, you will go like this "Start" - "Control Panel" - "Hardware and Sounds" - "Printers". When you get to where all the printers installed on your PC are displayed, go to the printer you want to use, right click on the very printer and select the option that say "Set as Default Printer". Close everything and enjoy your printing!!!

Help me in getting my Win XP work with my WLAN.


Do you have two laptops, one with Vista and one with XP?
Can the XP laptop detect the wireless router?
If so check the wireless card settings on the Vista laptop (ie the SSID and the encryption setting) and configure the same settings on the wireless card on the XP laptop.

Can't find printer on network


1.How are you attaching to the network printer from your daughters computer? IP address, or by the name of the printer...Also make sure you check you are attaching to the network printer, and not local printer.

2. Install the Microsoft TCP/IP version 6 protocol on both computers by clicking install on your LAN properties, then restart PC. This should work!

Ipaq H4150


Have you used a Vista PC as the host machine? ROM updates can only be done from a Win XP or 2000.

Hook the iPaq to an Win XP or 2k PC, install active sync first, and then get the ROM update again. Run the Rom Update Utility and it will recognise the iPaq and will update it correctly. :)
