I am needing to hook a printer up to my dell laptop and have no idea on how to do it. Also can you share a printer with your desk top and laptop? Help me please. Thanks so much,Robin


Hello. You need to download the driver in your computer and you can use the installation cd that came with your printer. The software gives you instructions, as well, on how to setup the printer itself. If you don't have the installation cd, the driver is available for download in the Lexmark website. Just click on this link: http://bit.ly/aiWCx4 . Type the exact model number of your printer in the bar just below the images of some of Lexmark's printers. Choose the correct driver for your computer's operating system. Install the software. About the other concern, yes, you can share the printer with your desktop and laptop. Call Microsoft or Macintosh, whichever operating system your computers are running, for assistance with printer sharing. Hope this helps. Good luck!

C4180 ON A NETWORK. BOUGHT A NEW LAPTOP AND WANT TO PRINT


Install the software on the laptop first and when it asks to connect the device, continue without connecting. Once finished, ensure the printer on the desktop is being shared in the printers folder. Then on the laptop add a device and search the network. If your 2 computers have the network established it should see it.

Sharing cannon printer MP170


If you want to make your printer a Stand-alone device (no need to be connected to a computer, just directly to the router) you may want to look at getting a Print-Server.

But if you just want to share the printers, you will have to install the printer separately on both computers (since they use 2 diff drivers for the printer), then share it on the vista computer. at this point you should now be able to print on both machines

New vista windows working with a wireless routerand a new laptop


Well if you want the prints to go through the router and into the printer First, set the printer up for sharing by going to printers and faxes right clicking on the printer choose Sharing Choose share this printer and give it a name, then might have to get a wireless usb for the desktop at a local Wal-mart and the laptop should have wireless, when you get that stuff connect to the wireless network, go to start, printers and faxes, in the left side toward the top you will see a link saying add printer, let the wizard start hit next, choose the bubble beside A network printer, then hit next choose browse for printer hit next it will say searching for printer wait till a list of printers come up and choose the one you want the computers to use.
