    Hi,



    Are you using a router to connect to the internet, if so does it have a USB connection.

  1. turn on the computer that has the printer attached.
  2. configure computer to share (start/settings/printer-faxes/right click on default printer/select sharing tab/ select share this printer/ apply settings/OK)(This computer must also be connected to the router so your laptop will see it as a network device)
  3. on wireless laptop, add printer
  4. when prompted select network printer.

For my wifes ease of use I purchased for $20.00 network magic which auto configured all my devices and monitored any access to my wireless router so I could choose who could access my open router.

How do I print wirelessly on network


*IF*....Not without additional wireless hardware in your network. It only comes with a "wired" connection.

You would need a Wireless Router, (or a Router and a Wireless Access Point,) to which you would run an Ethernet cable from your Printer to it. You then can use the on-screen menu to program the Ethernet interface with a Static local IP address, manually. I didn't check, but some printers have configuration software for this that will let you do the configuring within a webpage.

Once that is done, the printer drivers must be installed on all PC's you wish to connect it to, regardless of their connection method.

Compaq laptop will not connect to my netgear N300


Try switching the way you connect the wireless. On your laptop there are 2 different ways to connect, one using the the client application that goes with the wireless card, and the other way uses windows to manage and connect to the wireless. Switch them out. If you are using Windows, then use the other or vice versa. Open the software that came with your wireless card it should be on your desktop or in your program list. Click Start/Programs and look for it. For example it might be something like Atheros. Open it and look for a place or check mark on something that says: Let This tool Manage the Wireless, or Use Windows Zero Config to Manage the Wireless.

How can I connect my notebook to another pc without installing LAN??


A Local Area Connection, or LAN, is generally a small home or office network used to link all the devices in the area. With the advent of wireless technologies, LAN networks are no longer limited to the amount of cords you own. Laptops can connect to wireless LAN easily with their built in wireless adapters. Connecting two laptops together over wireless LAN is also easy, but requires a few special steps to give the laptops access to each other.

1Connect both laptops to the wireless network you wish to use. Once connected, click the "Start" button and navigate to the "Network" menu.

2.Click the "Network and Sharing Center" link. Press the "View Computers and Devices" button. A list of devices currently on the network is displayed.

3.Check the list for the names of both laptops. If both laptops are displayed in the list of devices connected to the network, the devices are connected wirelessly to a LAN network.

Laptops not connecting to the internet when the hp c4599 is on


Perhaps the printer is conflicting with the laptop by taking its "address" on the network...Do you know how to give your printer a diifferent IP address? Or your laptop? Its a bit complicated to explain but if you can make sure the laptops and the printer are all set to use "DHCP" then they should all each get an adress on your home network and work together.

In Windows Vista, click Start, Control Panel, Network & Internet, View Network Status and Tasks. Then view the status of your Wireless Network Connection and click details, if it says "DHCP Enabled" in there then your laptops are not the problem and should be sharing addresses.

You should be able to see in the printers control panel or by printing a self test page how its setup on the network, maybe it needs to be reconfigured while the laptops are turned on as well.

Can't find wireless hardware switch


I found someone locally who could tell me where the hardware switch was phyically located. I had thought that this was a software switch, but it's actually a button on the keyboard of the laptop, but it isn't labeled and, since I bought the laptop as a refurb on eBay, I didn't have a user manual to tell me where the switch is located.

Printer connection on my Belkin G Plus Mimo


You have to make sure you go to Control Panel/Printers, right click on the printer in the list and click 'Properties' - go to the sharing tab, select 'Share this printer', give it a name, and click OK. Then go to Printers on each of the laptops, select 'Add a printer', then 'Network printer', then 'Browse for printers'. You should be able to see the printer. If all the computers use the same operating system, you're good, otherwise, when you first share the printer, you may want to install additional drivers from the cd to support the different operating systems - alternately, you'll have to install the drivers for the printer on each computer.

Please rate if this helps :)
