If you are going to connect your printer to your router, use an RJ45 ethernet cable.By the way, why do you need to connect it to your router via ethernet wherein you can connect it wirelessly?

Why will my T632 not print over Wi-Fi from my 2011 iMac (10.7.4)?


If the Lexmark T632 is already connected through the Ethernet, it will not be possible to connect it through wireless. The printer cannot be configured with both the Ethernet and the wireless function enabled. The printer will choose the physical connection (Ethernet / LAN) over the wireless connection.

Tip

HP Printer on Network ( Wired or Wireless )


If you are not able to setup HP Printer on Wireless Network..

1. Connect the printer thru Ethernet Cord.
2. Complete the Software Installation ( choose Wired Network )
3. Once you have Completed the Installation, Disconnect the Ethernet ( network ) cord from Printer Port

It will print and Scan Wireless assuming the Wired IP is WIRELESS IP.

I think there are 6 ways (at least?) to connect this printer:
(1) Direct to Mac (or PC) via USB Cable (2) Direct to Mac (or PC) via Ethernet Crossover Cable(3) Ethernet to router/switch, with Mac/PC also via Ethernet to router/switch(4) Ethernet to router/switch, with Mac/PC via WiFi (802.11 wireless)(5) WiFi to router, with Mac/PC via Ethernet to router/switch(6) WiFi to router, with Mac/PC also via WiFi.
As (1) should be simplest, tried this first. First document would print instantly and completely, next doc would hang in queue with unexpected msg, "Printer is offline." Only way to print 2nd doc was to power cycle (off-on) the printer. This problem occurred whether 2nd doc was sent to printer before or after 1st doc had printed. Tried 2nd USB cable, tried new driver, tried reinstalling printer; same problem. Spoke to both Samsung and Apple support, including both on a conference call; never got this to work and never clarified if problem was in printer hardware/software, driver, or something else. Both companies now showing this issue as unresolved.
Nothwithstanding USB problem, did succeed in modes (4) and (6), although custom wireless config needed since my network does not broadcast SSID and requires an encryption password. Procedure required connecting first via Ethernet, obtaining Configuration Report by holding down orange button for 5 seconds, then using browser to connect to the printer's IP address. Also required different driver for wireless config (as opposed to USB).
Bottom line: What seemed simple - USB direct connect - proved unworkable, but wired and wireless network config works fine.

Instead of using a usb cable, I want to print wirelessly from laptop or iPad to my Canon PIXMA MP810 Printer. I have a wireless router with spare ethernet plugs at rear. What are my alternatives ? for...


You could purchase a ethernet print server which will allow you to connect your printer to the router via ethernet cable. I recommend the TPLink TL-PS110U. I use this for one of the printers in my office.

Alternatively, you could purchase the TPLink
TL-WPS510U. This is a wireless print server. It will give you some freedom if you wish to locate your printer to somewhere other than beside your router.

What are my options to configure Canon i850 for wireless printing


Hi

I looked at the specs of you printer and it does not support ethernet/ wireless connectivity your best bet would be to connect your printer to your router with usb cable that's if your router supports it else you can buy what they call a wireless print server and connect wirelesly to your router or pc

I have a printer attached via USB to a wi-fi connected desktop in a WGR614g network which supports an additional ethernet-connected desktop and two wi-fi laptops. Can I make the printer wi-fi accessible...


Do a search engine hunt for a "WIRELESS PRINT SERVER" and you'll bring up a Netgear WGPS606 for about $60-80 or a Linksys for $36-150 (the same one :-)).

The Netgear has 2 USB A ports and 4 ethernet ports. You plug in your printer, activate the wireless part to receive a signal and you have a networked USB printer.

I assume the Linksys works exactly the same way, except it may not have the additonal 4-port ethernet switch.

Connection


If your laptop is wireless then you don't need to connect the laptop to an ethernet wired connection. The ethernet does the same thing as the wireless. But if that is want you want to do it will work.

HP Photosmart C7280 wireless connection


My experience is different. My DSL router died in the night and I had to install the old one. I just changed the wireless settings on my C7280, and now all three connections work. If no wire (ethernet or USB) is connected, the wireless connection works. If the Ethernet cable is connected, it works via Ethernet, and if the USB cable is connected, it works via USB. It seems to default in that order.

Ethernet connection


Hello Becky

There could be a security feature on the printer that requires that you enable the Ethernet port at the printer's control panel 1st. I've seen this w/ printers and All-In-Ones that have a wireless-capable.

HERE is a link to HP's info, downloads, FAQs, etc on this printer.

Depending upon your LAN configuration (on the router), you may need to at least change the subnet mask on the printer if not assign it a static IP so it doesn't conflict w/ any other devices on your LAN using DHCP. (1st, of course, you'll need to get the Ethernet port enabled on the printer)

HERE's the User Guide for your printer. Go to page 29 to find the network configuration instructions.


Please, let us know if this response was helpful for your or, of course, if you have more questions, etc on this topic.

Thank you
BJ
