How to conect a printer


Install a printer on a home network

There are two basic ways to make a printer available to the PCs on your home network:

  • Attach it directly to one computer and share it with all the others on a network.

  • Connect the printer as a stand-alone device on the network itself.

This article explains how to do both in Windows. However, you should always first consult the information that came with your model for specific installation and setup instructions.
Setting up a shared printer

Traditionally, the most common way to make a printer available to a home network has been to connect it to one of the PCs and then tell Windows to share it. This is called a shared printer.

The advantage of sharing a printer is that it works with any USB printer. The downside? The host PC always has to be powered up, otherwise the rest of the network won't be able to access the shared printer.

In previous versions of Windows, setting up a shared printer could sometimes be tricky. But a new home networking feature in Windows 7 called HomeGroup has greatly simplified the process.

When a network is set up as a homegroup, printers and certain files are automatically shared. (To learn more about what homegroups do and how to use them, go to the Windows website and search for "HomeGroup: Recommended links.")

If you've already set up a homegroup and want to access a shared printer from another homegroup PC, just follow these steps:
To manually connect to a homegroup printer

  1. On the computer the printer is physically connected to, click the Start button ?id=4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33, click Control Panel, type homegroup in the search box, and then click HomeGroup.

  2. Make sure the Printers check box is selected. (If not, select it, and then click Save changes.)

  3. Go to the computer you want to print from.

  4. Click to open HomeGroup.

  5. Click Install printer.

  6. If you don't already have a driver installed for the printer, click Install driver in the dialog box that appears.
    Note

    • After the printer is installed, you can access it through the Print dialog box in any program, just like a printer that's directly connected to your computer. The computer that the printer is connected to must be turned on to use the printer.

Setting up a network printer

Network printers-devices designed to connect directly to a computer network as a stand-alone device-were once found mostly in large offices. No more.

Printer makers are increasingly offering inexpensive inkjet and laser printers that are designed to serve as network printers on home networks. Network printers have one big advantage over shared printers: they're always available.

There are two common types of network printers: wired and wireless.

  • Wired printers have an Ethernet port, which you connect to your router or hub via an Ethernet cable.

  • Wireless printers typically connect to your home network using Wi-Fi or Bluetooth technology.

Some printers offer both options. The instructions that came with your model should tell you exactly how to install it.

  1. ?id=microsoft.windows.resources.shellexecutetopiciconClick to open Devices and Printers.

  2. Click Add a printer.

  3. In the Add Printer wizard, click Add a network, wireless or Bluetooth printer.

  4. In the list of available printers, select the one you want to use, and then click Next.

  5. If prompted, install the printer driver on your computer by clicking Install driver. ?id=18abb370-ac1e-4b6b-b663-e028a75bf05b If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

  6. Complete the additional steps in the wizard, and then click Finish.
    Tips

    • Make sure that you have permission to use these printers before adding them to the computer.

    • You can confirm the printer is working by printing a test page. For details, see Print a test page

HOW DO I RESTART MY ACER LAPTOP


  • 1

    Connect the host computer (the computer that will be connected via wire to the printer) to the printer using the provided USB cable. Insert the printer software CD into the disc drive and click the "Install" button when it appears on-screen. Click "Continue" at the bottom of the next window.

  • 2

    Click "Yes" when asked whether the host computer will be sharing the printer. Give both the host computer and the printer a network name that will be used to connect to the other computers when prompted to do so. Continue to follow the on-screen instructions until the installation process is complete.

  • 3

    Go to a different computer on the network and insert the printer software CD into the disc drive. Click the "Install" button when it appears on screen. Select the "Network" option on the screen marked "Connect Your Printer."

  • 4

    Enter in network names of both the host computer and the printer into the dialog boxes in the next window. Continue to follow the on-screen instructions that will prompt you to begin the installation process. The installation process should take less than five minutes to complete. Click "Finish" once the software downloaded from the CD is complete. The printer will now be available to both computers on the network. Repeat these steps to enable another computer to work through the same network.

    I shows my printer is installed but I get a message error in script I have a Lexmark 6100 and it doesn't print or show up in the bottom that it's going to print.


    Is this printer connected via usb in your computer? was this working before? how many computers you do have on the network? were you able to try installing the printer into the other computer? Because sometimes there are computers in which the printer spooler of the computer is damage or not working at all. Usually they can install the printer and they ca even see it on the network...

    I suggest try another computer to install this printer and see if in case it is the same thing..

    Printer will work for only one computer


    It's not the printer, it's the network. When Comcast installed cable in your office they disrupted/changed the network settings on the other computers. Go to the computer that can use the printer and right-click on it. Check Properties/Sharing. Make sure the Share This Printer box is checked. If it is, the problem lies in the network connection of the other PC's.

    You can buy an A/B switch (mechanical), share the printer on your network (if you have a network) or buy a print server (also requires a network).

    to clarify this, you need to install the printer in a computer that is connected to a Local Area Network lets call it computer 1. Once the printer is connected to the computer 1, share the printer by going to the start/settings/ printers. Right click on the lexmark e120 printer and click share. Click share this printer. Once done the printer that is connect to computer 1 is now on the network. on the other computer lets call it computer 2, to to start/settings/printer and click add printer/ select network printer and then browse the printer in the network and select it so that it will be added. Now you computer 2 has a network printer installed. try printing, make sure not to turn off the computer 1 when printing, or else it wont print.

    Canon L:BP3500 with Vista business


    Here are solutions to some common problems with Vista that you might encounter while trying to add or use network printers,

    If you have used the printer before without problems, try these options:

    • Make sure that the network is working and that your computer is properly connected to the network. For more information, see the following Help topics:
    View the status of your home network
    Identify and resolve home network problems
    Troubleshoot network and Internet connection problems
    • Check the status of the printer in the print queue, or go to the printer to make sure that is it powered on and ready to use.
    • If the printer is plugged in to another computer and shared on the network, make sure that computer is turned on. If it is turned on and the problem persists, contact the computer owner to make sure that the computer is connected to the network.
    • If you are trying to print to a printer that you added using a TCP/IP address instead of a printer name, make sure that your computer is connected to the Internet or the network where the printer is installed. If you recently experienced a power outage, the printer TCP/IP address might have changed. The new address will not work with the printer port that you used to connect the printer to your computer. Try to add the printer again. For more information, see Add or remove a printer.
    If you recently installed a new version of Windows, changed the printer driver software, or are trying to print to the printer for the first time, you might need to install printer drivers that are compatible with the version of Windows that you're running. If you are trying to use a printer that is plugged in to another computer and shared on the network, make sure that a driver for your version of Windows is installed on the other computer.


    Hope this helps
