You will need two computer connected through rj-45 (internet cable) so its network up, then you will just have to share the printer on that main pc and then the other pc will be able to print to the printer as long as the main printer is turnt on.

Hope this make sense

Can i hook up my printer to my wireless router and if i can how do i tell it to print when i need it to print


The iP6310D can't connect to the wireless router directly. It has a USB port and an optional blue-tooth receiver.
If you connect the printer to one computer, you may be able to share it using that computer as a server. Install the printer software on all of the machines. For the software, see http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/printers_multifunction/pixma_ip_series/pixma_ip6310d#DriversAndSoftware . For Windows 7 and 8, if you set up a Homegroup, enable sharing for the printer on the computer that it is directly connected to. Then use Add a Printer command from the Devices and Printers Control Panel option to locate networked printers. For other OS options, you'll need to make sure that the computers are in the same workgroup. (See the Network set-up information.) Then add a network printer.
If your wireless router has a USB port, you may be able to connect the printer to the router. Again install the printer software on each computer. Then use the router's software to add a printer on the computer. (For Linksys routers, that is the Cisco Connect software. Some routers may not offer this software for all OS's or for all printers.)

A similar option is a print server connected to the USB port of the printer. You will need to check the specifications for each one. There are some that only work on select printers.
Once the software (the printer driver and then the network software/shared printer is set up), then any program should be able to print following the File > Print command.
Please add a comment with your OS and/or router model, I'll try to walk you through setting up a shared printer or a USB connection on the router.

(Note: I have a USB printer connected and a wired network printer to a Cisco router. My only issue is that I get a printer error with every print job. The printers print the documents anyway. The error is due to the printers not responding to the software as fast as if it were a direct connection.)

I bought a canon pro 9000 Mark II printer and just changed all the colors. it now says it is offline and will not print. how can i fix? need to use printer now and stressed to the max


hi there,
have you checked the connection between the printer and the computer to make sure it didn't get loosen or disconnected?
If ok, then try turning the printer off, shut down your computer, reseat the connection between your computer and the printer (both ends of the cable - or can try a different USB port on your computer), then turn the printer and the computer back on in the order described.

How do i connect a canon pixma op 4300 to the usb


You can share your printer as a shared printer on your network. This computer and the attached printer must be on at all times to allow other computers on your network to print on this printer.
Please click on this link and follow my instructions on how to setup a shared printer :

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.

Print sharing


No matter how you slice it, if you want to share the printer, you will be creating a network. If I remember this printer correctly, it has an Ethernet port to connect to a network or USB to connect ot a computer. If your router supports wired connections, you can connect it there and just inistall drivers on each device and selec tthe network option. If not, you will probably want to connect it via USB to your desktop machine and enable print sharing on that machine. Te enable printer sharing, open up the Network and Sharing Center. In the Sharing and Discovery section, turn on the option for Printer Sharing. You will still need to install the XP driver on the netbook and select the network option, but give it the proper network location (ie.\\mycomputer\this printer).

How to redirect lpt print to canon lbp-3000 printer


Here's what you need to do. ON the computer that you want to associate that LPT1 port, you need to know the name of the computer, and the share name of the printer. In this case, I am assuming you have the Canon LBP-3000 physically connected to this system running the FoxPro program.

Step one: Find the computer name. Click on START SETTINGS CONTROL PANEL. Double click SYSTEM. Click on the tab COMPUTER NAME and under FULL COMPUTER NAME, write down the name. Click OK to exit the window.

Step two: Click on START, SETTINGS CONTROL PANEL. Double click PRINTERS AND FAXES. Right click on the Canon LBP-3000 printer and click on SHARE. In the window that opens, click on SHARE THIS PRINTER and take note of the name in SHARE NAME: and write it down. Click on OK to share the printer and exit out of the wizard.

Step three: Click on START, RUN. Type CMD in the box and click OK. in the black window, type NET USE LPT1 \\COMPUTER NAME\SHARE NAME

Follow with RETURN or ENTER and you should be good.

Connect mulitple Computers to one printer


Is your computer is networked or connected to each other? if its networked then you can use network printer sharing.

Because printers and networks vary, the best instructions for setting up and networking your printer should be in its users manual. Also, your network-ready printer may have come with installation software that can help you share the printer over the network.

There are three main steps you need to take when networking a printer, including the following: Enable the File And Printer Sharing setting, Make the printer available to all users, and Direct PCs to the printer.
