Yes, you can. The easiest (and most secure) way to do this is to share it through a computer that is always on as the printer's host. Actually, looking at the specifications of the C5280, it is your only option. On the host computer (the one directly connected to the printer), click
(On Vista) Start > Control Panel > Printers
Right-click on the printer you wish to share, then left click on Sharing ... and click the checkmark box for "Share This Printer As" and give the printer a name. If this option is grayed out, click the shielded button Sharing Options and enable printer sharing.
On each of the computers you want to have printer access, open the printers window (see above) and double click the "Add Computer" icon. From the dialogue box, click "Add network, wireless or Bluetooth Printer." Your shared printer should appear on the list. Follow the prompts to install the printer, and you are ready to go!
Notes: The process is almost identical for WinXP and Windows 7 with small variations. Printer drivers will probably not be necessary, the remote computers may ask for one. Install the driver on each system as requested. Opening printer sharing can cause security vulnerabilities on improperly setup routers -- make sure that your wireless router is properly secured with WPA2 encryption and a security key (built-in features on most routers, but usually turned off by default).

HP C5280 IS THIS PRINTER WIRELESS IF NOT HOW DO I MAKE IT


no it is not wireless. The easiest way to make a printer wireless is to have a wireless router with a USB port. Plug the printer into the USB port on the router and you can share the printer wirelessly. You will need to follow the instructions for your router for installing the printer driver. Otherwise, use a wireless adapter such as:

Need my laptop to communicate wireless to printer


If the printer does not have a built-in network card/print server then there is a couple of ways to do this.
If you have a desktop computer connected to the wireless router with a LAN cable, then connect the printer to the desktop computer and make this printer a shared printer on your network. This means that the desktop computer and printer needs to be on when you want to print from the laptop.
The other way is to purchase a print server, connect the printer to the print server and connect the print server with a LAN cable to the Wireless router.
If you don't have sufficient network ports on the wireless router then you need to purchase a hub. Then connect the hub and wireless router with a LAN cable and then the print server to the hub and other computers to the hub.
Setting up the wireless printing will depend upon which method you want to adopt and I can advise you when further when you are ready.

Set up 2 wireless routers, 1st for printer, 2nd for internet


You should only need one wireless router for everything. The purpose of the router is to "route" multiple devices together. Your set-up should be something like this:

Modem connected to wireless router via Ethernet cable.
Wireless router broadcasting wireless internet connection.
Computer(s) connected to wireless router via cable or wireless adapter.
Computer with network printer sharing enabled.
Turn on wireless printer.
You should be able to detect the printer via Windows.

C5280 won,t print


I had a problem with my C5280 installing another copy of itself when I restarted my computer. Check to see that you don't have multiple copies installed and are possibly trying to print to the wrong one.
