Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

I'm unable able to print from my laptop and my desktop. They share the same printer and nothing seems to work. I've unplugged and restarted everything. I also went into the settings so I can check "enable bidirectional communication" but the box is gray so I'm unable to check it. This is very frustrating, I have a project due tomorrow. Thanks

    I'm not sure about the LAN part but I've uninstalled and reinstalled it multiple times. My printer worked fine a month ago until I tried to share the printer on my network with my laptop, then all hell broke loose.

I've configured my desktop Brother HL2040 to share but I can't print from my laptop.


Make sure you've got the firewall set to allow printing on the computer working as a print server.

Another simple solution is to pick up an ethernet or wireless print server unit. It's going to cost more, but it's typically very reliable, and doesn't depend on another computer for printing.

Can't print to HP 2600n over network


The LaserJet 2600N has a built-in print server and can be connected to the local network (normal ethernet cable) directly. While printer sharing via Windows should work, I found it much more convenient to access it without the need of a hosting computer - you do not need to switch on the desktop PC for printing from the Laptop, for example, its also printing faster.

Print sharing


Hi, As you are tryig to share the printer that is not network compatible you have to set the printer directly to the desktop and then the desktop should be connected to the router so that the laptop and desktop will exchange communication in network. You can follow the instructions in the below weblink once the above setup is set as the weblink has all the instructions to enable the print sharing feature. Here is the HP webdocument link: ======== http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/genericDocument?docname=bpu01766&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&dlc=en&lang=en ======== Hope this will be useful for you.. Wish you success. Regards, Barret
