Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate Edition

Connectivity - Network Printer

I'm trying to add a network printer to my laptop (Win Vista) w/out favorable results. I keep getting told that:

Windows can not connect to the printer. The printer driver is not compatible with a policy enabled on your computer that blocks NT 4.0 drivers.

What kind of assistance can I obtain from YOU?

Thanks,

Chauser

CAN THE DELL AIO 948 PRINTER BE USED FOR SHARING


Yes, If it is connected to a computer on your home network, right click the printer, setup sharing. For example, if you have a laptop on the same home network, Add a network printer to the laptop and print wirelessly without a wireless printer.

Add Network Printer If you have two or more computers in your house or office you will only need one printer installed on one computer for both to have printing privileges. This article shows you how to add a network printer to Windows Vista.
Add Network Printer Applies to Windows XP. Even though the instructions are similar to installing a network printer on Windows Vista, there are a few extra tips that might be interesting.

Path to your network printer How to find the path \\server\printer. If Windows does not find your network printer automatically then you will need to know the path to your network printer.
Set Network printer permissions Set who can change printer settings in Windows XP and Vista. I personally like to let everyone on the network just print and not be able to change too many settings to do with the printer.

If the driver is already available and you're getting the error "Windows cannot connect to the printer" and "Operation failed with error 0x0000000d" in the detail,
I found a solution from Vista that can be adjusted to work in Windows 7:

1. In "Devices and Printers" click "Add a Printer"
2. Select "Add a local printer"
3. Select "Create a new Port" and use "Local Port" as the Type
4. Enter the Network Path to the Printer (ie. \\ComputerName\SharedPrinterName) as the Port Name
5. Choose the printer from the list
6. Choose whether you want to use the driver that is currently installed or replace it
7. Name the printer
8. Choose whether to share the printer or not
9. Choose whether to set the printer as the default printer or not

Can I use my Kodak 5300, installed as my network printer on a desktop running Windows XP with my new laptop running Vista? If so, do I run the install disk (with Vista drivers) on the laptop or what?


you should be able to as long as there are Vista drivers available.

make sure you first share your printer from the desktop it is attached to. then on the Visa laptop try to Add Printer choosing network printer (as opposed to local printer) and browse for the shared printer. Vista should tell you it has to install software so allow it to. Have the disk ready (does it have Vista drivers on it do you know?).

Word of caution: Vista's a little quirky with networked printers so you may have to delete the printer on the laptop and add it back if it doesn't work the first time (I had to do that even though all machines involved were Vista :/ ).

Cheers.

HP 4550 PRINTER PROBLEM


Go to Control Panel\Hardware and Sound\Printers and add a printer. Select it as a network printer, and stop it searching (unless it finds it of course - which sounds unlikely!) Then click on "The printer that I want isn't listed"
Choose to add a printer using the IP or hostname, and click next.
Type in the IP address of the printer. This can be found by printing out the network configuration page from the printer. The port will be filled in for you. Click next.
The printer should now be added.

Printing from XP to a Brother 7820N as a networked printer


We have multiple 7820s in our office. This would be a configuration problem with your windows XP computer. From the XP computer, open a command prompt and type "ping x.x.x.x" where x.x.x.x is the ip address of the 7820n. Make sure you get four successes. I would then uninstall the brother software and drivers and go to "printers and faxes" in the control panel and manually add the printer.

To manually add a network printer, with it's own print server, on Win XP:

1 Click "Add Printer"
2 Select "Local Printer Attached to this computer"
3 Deselect "Automatically detect and install my Plug and Play printer" then click "Next"
4. Click "Create a new port" and select "Standard TCP/IP" from the drop down. Click "Next". this will open TCP/IP Wizard
5. Type in Printer IP Address next to IP Address (Port name will autopopulate) and click "Next"
6. If wizard finds printer, it will show you "Finish" button. If you get a "Additional Port Information Required" window, something is wrong with your printer or windows xp network configuration.
7. When the TCP Wizard window closes, it will take you back to Add Printer Wizard. Select "Have Disk" and navigate to the \USA\WXP\Addprt directory on your Brother Drivers disc.
8. Select brxpadd.inf and click "Open" then click "OK"
9. Select "Brother MFC 7820 N Printer" from the list and click "Next"
10. Select name of printer, whether you want a default, print test page and DONE!

Asus 802.11 a/b/g wireless adapter problem


The problem could be with the wireless network that you are trying to access, or it has something to do with you wireless card tcp/ip protocol.

where you using the same computer now, when you had this issue with the vista? or is this win XP pc that you have now is a different computer?

if you are getting limited or no connectivity, that means that the access point (wireless signal) is not giving you a valid IP address.

you can try to add static to your IP settings, but this will only work if you knew the IP range of that network that you are trying to access.

please provide more info
