How do i connect my epsonR300inkjet printer wirelessly


Network printing with a non-networked printer
This model printer has only an USB printer connection andnormally connected to a computer or laptop.
To connect this printer wirelessly to all laptops on your wireless networkthere are a couple of methods.
Connect the printer to a desktop computer and setup the printer as a sharedprinter. Next connect the desktop computer to your wireless router with a LANcable and then configure the wireless laptops to connect to the shared printeron the desktop computer. NOTE - This desktop computer and printer must be on atall times for the wireless laptops to print to the printer.
OTHER METHOD
Connect the printer to an USB print server and connect the print server to thewireless router with a LAN cable. The printer drivers needs to be installed onall the wireless laptops and then the printer port needs to be deleted from theUSB port and a new IP address printer port installed. This IP address will bethe IP address of the print server.

Can we use MF6550 for wireless network?


If you use a wireless USB print server like this . Keep in mind that you may not get all functions such as scanning to work but it will allow for printing for sure. If the scanning works consider it a bonus.

Im trying to set up wired computer desktop to share my new s605 to my sons laptop wireless...do i need to use the CD enclosed with the printer and put it in my sons laptop to install the printer on his...


Yes you need to setup the printer as a shared printer using the printer driver CD.
Your shared printer and computer would need to be on your LAN and connected to a wireless router. The laptop will connect to the shares printer via the wireless router and LAN cable to the computer with the shared printer.
Please click on this link and follow my instructions to setup the shared printer.

I need to know what kind of internet connection cord do i need to go with my Z615 lexmark printer so i can connect to a toshiba laptop


Your Z615 printer does not need an internet connection cord to be connected to your laptop. Instead, it uses a USB cable with Type A on one end and Type B on the other.

How can I install the mp470 printer onto my laptop without the installation cd? It has been lost and cannot be located but I need a printer!


Try this!

Turn on your laptop and let it finish loading the desk top. Then turn on your printer (but dont connect it to your laptop yet). After the printer has powered up, connect it to your laptop. Watch the laptop screen on the lower right hand side to see if it acknowledges the printer now connected and automatically searches for the necessary drivers. If it does, then follow the prompts and it will tell you when its finished and the printer is ready to use.

If you connect the printer and the pc does not acknowledge that it has been connected, then you will need to download the software to run the printer from Canon's website. Just go there and enter your printer model and download the software for free.

Make sure you install the software without the printer connected to your pc. Connect the printer afterwards for best results.

Connection to laptop


Most printers are connected to laptops via the USB ports. If the printer is supposed to be wireless, then you may have to connect the laptop via the USB port so you can activate the wireless port.

Printer 6540


First of all u need to assemble the printer and need to ensure that the printer has a steady green light on Power..
If any light blinks it means there is some problem with the printer..
To connect the printer with your Laptop u need an USB cable which has a rectangular connector at one end wich will be connected to the Laptop's USB Slot and the other end of that cable will have almost square connector wich will be connected to the printer...
Before connecting the printer U need to install the Software on the Laptop and connect the printer when system prompts..
remember the printer should be powered on while connecting to the system..

Connecting printer to laptop


You need to install driver on laptop as well first.

If you want to connect the printer to two computers at the same time, you need either to plug/ unplug the usb cable each time.

Or you setup a network using a router and share the printer on the network.
Or you buy a printer servet or a printer switch and connect printer to both computer at same time, this is the best solution.

Got to a local retailer, explain what you want and get equipment (eg. printer server or printer switch) to share the printer between the two computer.

If you just need to install drivers on the laptop, use printer disk or follow instructions below:

Click right here.
A web page will open, select country, operative system etc., and click on download now loaction.
Chose to download the file in my documents when asked.
After downloading, find thefile, double click on the file, if you get in troubles ,then follow instructions below to reset and reinstall:


  • Unplug printer USB.
  • Go to control panel >> installed printers in Windows and remove (delete ) any installed printer from printer list.
  • Download driver from website and run the file.
  • Follow driver installation wizard.
  • Plug back printer when prompted from installation wizard.
Some Lexmark printer does not work on Vista.
