Printer/computer connection cable


My e-Machine has a printer port on it. If yours does not then you will need to try and locate a Serial to USB converter. I have not seen these but I am sure someplace has them. With the cost of Printers today, I would just by a $39 printer from Walmart and use that. Due to ink cost it is cheaper just to purchase a new printer instead of buying ink now days this will fall into the same category. If you can get a connection box to connect that printer to a network you could do that and access it through a router which would be another option.

Contact the cable company and tell them you have a router connected to your modem - they will tell your modem to access the router for it to work.

I have a MacIntosh computer and wanted to install NetGear WGPS606 54 Mbps Wireless Print Server w/4 Port Switch to serve a Canon Pixma MP830. The hangup is the IP address assigned to the printer. I had...


You can assign ip with 2 method 1 is manually and other is automatic .
If you set manualy ip you must need to set gateway as your printers and other computer's gateway.
Subnetmask is same in all system.
For example if your netgear lan ip is 192.168.1.1 then your printer ip 192.168.1.5 sunet mask as 255.255.255.0 and gateway is 192.168.1.1
Other computer's ip 192.168.1.6 subnet mask 255.255.255.0 gateway 192.168.1.1
Make sure the printer driver installed and it is in network.
IF you want ip from netgear then you need to enable dhcp in it.
Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link.
http://192.168.1.1 or
http://192.168.0.1 or
http://192.168.15.1
or
http://192.168.2.1
If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it.
Then it ask for user name and password.
Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank.
Then you can see configuration page of router.

Then click on dhcp then enable save settings and restart netgear.
Then in printer set ip get automatic from router.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.

This printer can print wirelessly across a network, and/or across a USB cable to one printer. The printer is set up for wireless use by connecting it to a computer with USB, and after it is set up you SHOULD be able to access it across your wireless router. If you look at items on the router, you will see this printer there too, with its own IP address. When you set the printer up in Windows, set it up as though it is a network printer. Looking under Ports, making sure that the correct item is checkmarked.

How do i let other computers in the house use the lexmark printer


If the printer is connected directly to your computer and you want others to use it through your computer, you have to set it up as a network computer for remote access.

Your computer has to be on when other want to print.
You set up your network settings to allow printer and file sharing
then you go to printers and set it for sharing.

You have to config things based off the network you have.

If the printer has a network card, then you can plug it into the network directly and anyone can print to it as long as the printer is on.

You set up the printer through it IP. Us your main computer to install the drivers first, then go to install printers and follow the guid to locate your printer on the network. You will probably have to install the drivers on each P.C or laptop.

Now if you have absolutely no idea how to do any of this and are not inclined to try, then i wold suggest googling how to setup a network printer as well as reading the paper work that came with it, as alot of times they have the instructions in there.

Because going through step by step without being there would take me forever.

Good luck.

I suggest you network the printer and access it through the wireless access point.  

Also, I do not mean to insult your computer smarts, but if you do not have a driver installed, you will not be able to talk to the printer at all.
