I just received a wireless printer. I installed it onto my computer, but there's no connection between my computer and the printer. My computer says that it's WiFi on the bottom, but I don't know what's going wrong.

Computer unable to communicate with wireless printer


Hi


If you can't connect to your wireless printer, you may have the wrong driver installed. Printer drivers are updated when new versions of operating systems are released, or when security updates are necessary. If you're trying to connect a new wireless printer, check the manufacturer's website to find out if a new driver has been released for your model number and operating system.

Download the latest print driver to your desktop. Print drivers allow the computer and printer to communicate, so the wrong driver will make connectivity impossible.

Go to "All Programs" in the Start menu. Find your wireless printer and right-click to select "Uninstall." The driver will be uninstalled. Close out the programs window.

Double-click the new driver on your desktop to unzip and install it. This should take only a second, and you may not see any dialog box or pop-up menu.

Open a document and choose "File" and "Print." The print dialog box will open.

Click "Add a printer." The add printer wizard will begin. Browse to the driver you just installed and select it when prompted.

Print the document you opened. It should print to the wireless printer. You can click the "Make default printer" box before you print if you want.

Install the driver in the same manner on all the other network computers. You can copy the driver onto a flash drive and copy it from computer to computer to avoid downloading it multiple times.

Periodically my H470 wireless printer loses connectivity. Like right now. I've removed the wireless USB adapter and reconnected. Still it doesn't connect. My computer is using the same wireless router...


Welcome to Fixya!

Might I suggest downloading and install the latest drivers for your printer. See my published guide entitled How to Install the latest drivers for Hewlett Packard Printer!!!
It is possible that the unit is out of range, try moving it closer to the receiver!

Thanking you

How can I connect my printer to my wireless network


If you have a wireless-enabled printer, you can use the printer's configuration to connect it to the router. If you have a wired connection printer (ethernet port) connect it to one of the ports on the back of the router with an Ethernet cable and the printer should sort itself out. If your printer is not network-enabled, you will need to connect it directly to a network-connected computer, then use Windows' sharing settings to share the printer to the network.
Hope this helps, Alistair

Trying to connect printer to computer wireless


  1. Step 1 Check if your printer is network ready. Many newer models are designed to work on networks. Examine the documentation to see if your printer supports Wi-Fi (802.11x) or Bluetooth.
  2. Step 2 Add network support to your printer. If your printer is not already wireless you can connect it to a wireless routermag-glass_10x10.gif using the RJ-45 Jack (it resembles a large telephone jack). You can also buy an expansion card that will add a jack or buy an external print server that will connect to the USB or parallel port.
  3. Step 3 Connect your printer to the network. If your printer is not wired, you’ll have to connect it directly to your wireless router. Connect a networking cable from the RJ-45 Jack on the printer (or adapter) to the router. Plug it into any jack except the UPLINK. The printer should automatically connect to the network when turned on.
  4. Step 4 Install printer drivers on all computers. Using the disc that came with the printer or drivers downloaded from the manufacturer, install the printer’s drivers onto each computer on the network.
  5. Step 5 Print. You should be able to access the printer just like any other wireless device. Select the printer from the Print menu when you print.
  6. Share Your Printer in Windows
  7. Step 1 Install the printer. Set up the printer as normal on a machine that is already connected to the wireless network. Connect all necessary cables and install all necessary drivers.
  8. Step 2 Open the printers and faxes folder. Click "Start," then "Control Panel," then "Printers and Other Hardware" and then "Printers and Faxes."
  9. Step 3 Share your printer. Find the icon for the printer you just installed. Click the icon once and then select SHARE THIS PRINTER in the tasks pane on the left. Now, right click the icon, select properties and go to the SHARING tab. Click "Share Name," and then click "Okay."
  10. Step 4 Connect to the printer. On the other computers within the network, open the control panel and click "Printers and Other Hardware." Select "Add a Printer."
  11. Step 5 Select "Printer Connection." When prompted, select this option instead of the local printer. Find and select the printer you just installed and select it.
  12. Step 6 Print as normal. Next time you print a page, send it to your networked printer.

Hope this Help.

Cheers!!!!
