Question about Computers & Internet
I bought an Extensa 4620-4605 earlier this year. I just now went to connect it to my older printer--an HP laserjet 2100 series (C4170A)--but I don't know how. My printer has 3 connections--a parallel port (my computer doesn't), a local talk port (my computer ???), and IR (so does my computer but printing is hit and miss--mostly miss). How do I connect the two?
Does this Laptop have a docking station? If so then on the back of the docking station should be a parallel port.
Is you laptop connected to a router/firewall/switch? Then you can get a device that will make the printer become networkable and connect to you firewall switch...this unit is called HP jetdirect. It will make your parralel printer become more useful and connected to the network.
Problem is the printer is "old school" and the laptop is "new school", the JetDirect will bridge this...
