Question about HP Photosmart C3180 All-In-One InkJet Printer
It's really annoying! this product is supposed to work heh!? i just cannot seem to get it to work on a win xp home laptop. i have a belkin router providing the network.
i can install it as a usb printer but tried to add it over the network and i couldn't detect the printer, i tried to install it as a network printer with the usb connected (the way that the manual says to do so) but whenever i come t the part of detecting it it never shows up!!!!! even when i finally figured out the ip address/url (or whatever it is) which is 192.168.2.4
If people absolutley cannot get a solution or don't want all the hassle of windows i recommend getting a MAC! (as the adverts say, they "just work") -> i downloaded the latest software last night and got it installed and setup in no time!, i can even scan from it wirelessly!!!! :)
but yeah, i am trying to get it working on my moms laptop so i appreciate all the help i can get!
If only it was just THAT simple doreen31987
i tried it and it complains that windblows cannot connect to the printer because i have typed it incorrectly (NO!!!!) or the printer has lost it's connection to the server.
i have just connected to it on my mac (the computer and OS that actually WORKS!) and it's fine. windows is behaving like a blind OAP and its doing my head in!
this whole experience is going to prove that windows is complete ****. but if you have any other suggestions i am willing to try them out. it's for my mom not me.
thanks for trying again
