Make sure your router is set to accept Wireless-B connections...most aren't. Log into your router and setup wireless, using an SSID and security. Then connect with your laptop and you're good to go.

I looked on HP's support page and found out that your printer does not have a wireless adapter built in.
The wireless adapter, if it's a usb adapter, won't work with your printer if you plug it in.
There's a few ways you can wirelessly print;
You can connect the printer to a computer and set up printer sharing.
You can purchase another adapter that allows you to connect your usb printer to the network.

Does the HP Photo smart supports only USB. So the only you can connect is to hook up with a computer with a USB port.Share printer on the computer and connect the computer by wire/wireless to the network

This way you can access it from laptop/computer on the network.


Kindly let me know if it does have Ethernet port (RJ-45)

Hope this helps.

Hi,
Check the following steps to connect wireless linksys router :

First, you have to connect the router to the ADSL or the cable modem.

Your system has to be set in such a way that it will get its TCP/IP network settings from the router via DHCP.

Second, you need to configure the router to use your Internet service.

Connect the antennas to the Linksys wireless router. Connect an Ethernet cable to the Internet port at the back of the Linksys router and it will establish a connection between your modem and router.

Connect another Ethernet cable between the computer and the router. Then connect the router to an electrical outlet.

Since your laptop don't have a wireless adapter , first thing that you can do in order for you to use the laptop to the internet with the wireless router is to connect the laptop to the router via CAT5 /Ethernet cable then that should now be able to access the internet , but if you want to make the laptop work wirelessly with out the cable connected to it, you can get a wireless adapter like this from Linksys WPC54G or a WUSB54GC if you have any of this wireless adapter you can now use the laptop wirelessly with the router.....

Hope that helps............

If your router is not wireless capable you need to add "wireless access point" on your network so that your wireless computers will be able to connect wirelessly to your network. You can buy WAP54G of Linksys or other brand of WAP(wireless access point).

My lap top connecting to my wireless system.


Your computer is not yet connected to the wireless network of the router. Also, make sure that your wireless computer has a wireless adapter installed on it. You may verify it on the Device Manager. If you're using a laptop with built in wireless adapter , make sure that the switch for the wireless connection is on so that it will detect the signal of the router.

Try configuring or verifying the wireless settings of the router first by following the steps on this link:
http://linksys.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/linksys.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=4585&p_created=1165894972&p_sid=RY2yXS3j&p_accessibility=0&p_lva=&p_sp=cF9zcmNoPTEmcF9zb3J0X2J5PSZwX2dyaWRzb3J0PSZwX3Jvd19jbnQ9MTAwNiZwX3Byb2RzPTAmcF9jYXRzPTE3MjEsMTcyMyZwX3B2PSZwX2N2PTIuMTcyMyZwX3NjZl9sYW5nPTEmcF9wYWdlPTEmcF9zZWFyY2hfdGV4dD13aXJlbGVzcyBzZWN1cml0eQ**&p_li=&p_topview=1

After configuring or verifying the wireless settings of the router, connect your wireless computer by following the steps on this link:
http://linksys.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/linksys.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=4055&p_created=1160185039&p_sid=RY2yXS3j&p_accessibility=0&p_lva=&p_sp=cF9zcmNoPTEmcF9zb3J0X2J5PSZwX2dyaWRzb3J0PSZwX3Jvd19jbnQ9MTAyNSZwX3Byb2RzPTAmcF9jYXRzPTE3MjEsMTcyMyZwX3B2PSZwX2N2PTIuMTcyMyZwX3NjZl9sYW5nPTEmcF9wYWdlPTEmcF9zZWFyY2hfdGV4dD1jb25uZWN0aW5n&p_li=&p_topview=1

If you cannot still connect wirelessly, let me know of the following:
- model number of the router
- operating system of the computer
- wireless adapter installed on the computer (built in or external)
- brand of wireless adapter installed
- wireless settings of the router (SSID, wireless security)

D-Link Ethernet Broadband Router


What I would do for the computers that can't get internet connection. Basically just connect to it wirelessly with a wireless adapter that I talked below,

1.I would go buy some "USB" wireless adapters you can get them for $15-25.00 USD
Linksys carriers ones that I use,heres a link to what it looks like.

that is the one I use for my Desktop.

Once you get those setup and install the drivers with the disk that come with the wireless adapter you just connect to the router wirelessly.
