I've had a similar problem trying to print to a printer that was not on my laptop but connected to the network through a desktop that was connected to the WiFi router and a cable modem.

If you can see the printer, maybe the driver is already installed.
In my experience, I had to log on as the administrator to print to the printer but I have windows 7 on all 4 of my computers.

I don't have xp anymore.

Maybe xp is the problem.

Can i connect my canon pixma mp780 using wireless feature?


The specifications for this printer reveals it has no network capabilities at all.
You can connect this printer to a computer and set it up as a shared printer and if you have a wireless router connected to this computer and printer then you can print from a laptop using a wireless connection.

I have an canon pixma mp480 connected to a windows xp home computer. It work fine. I shared the pinter to the network. I got the windows xp connected to that shared printer, but the windows vista computers...


Is the printer connected via USB to the XP computer?
How did you map the shared printer (ie; what port)
When you're on a Vista machine, go to Network, find thw XP computer, explore, can you access the printer through this method? I need to know if Vista machines were set up with this printer on Local Port or Connected to this machine.

Can't connect Xp laptop to 64Bit Vista PC to be able to print across wireless network


yes easy to fix, just share your print driver give it a share name like canonmp780 on the pc it is connected to
then get on your laptop asuming its on your wireless network and in the start bar run this command. \\ your computer name one printer is connected to \ canonmp780.
so if your computer name is windows and your printer name is canonmp780 the run command will be: \\windows\canonmp780 hope this helps and really easiest way to connect to it.

Printer is not working


The Pixma MP210 does not support a wireless connection. It has a USB port. Some wireless routers do have USB ports and can thus share the printer. Similarly, there are print server options that can be connected to the USB port. However, these will not work with the scanner functions of the all-in-one. Also you would need to confirm that the print server you choose is compatible with the Pixma MP210.

The fastest way to print right now is to connect the USB cord to the laptop. Wait for the drivers to be installed and then send the file to the printer. Moving the cable will let both computers use the scanner features of the all-in-one. A manual USB A/B switch might allow you to share the printer with fewer chances for a damaged USB cable. However, these usually don't support the scanner. Scanning requires bi-directional communication between the printer and the computer. A bad USB cable can turn an all-in-one into a single function printer with a direct USB connection.

Once the MP210 driver is on both systems and they are connected to the same network, you may be able to set up the desktop as a print server for the laptop. This will depend on the OS on both systems. Something like the Windows Homegroup easily allows printer sharing when enabled for systems with Windows 7 and newer on a private network. Both systems need to join the same homegroup. One system starts the homegroup. Then you have to type in the password on the second computer. This works even with one system connected to the wireless network and the other connected to a wired port on the router.

On Vista and XP, you could enable printer sharing as well in the Network and Sharing center. See https://www.wikihow.com/Share-a-Printer for the steps With Windows OS versions, the scanner functions will only be available on the computer with the direct USB connection.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the OS versions on both the desktop and the laptop if you need more specific advice.
