You have many choices you could go with here.

Depending on your printer if it has a network plug in the back you could just plug a cable into the back of your printer and then to your router and then set the printer up on your computer as a network printer.

You could also get a print server, which takes a usb connection to a network cable connection and just plug into your router and set up the printer.

The biggest factor is printer, and the connections on the back.

Why is My HP printer not connecting to Wi-fi?


You sound as though you wish the printer to directly connect to the laptop via wi-fi. This is not usually the case in home networks. Most home networks use a wi-fi router to link all wi-fi components. This is because your laptop is not capable of handling the routing duties itself, nor is the printer (normally). The wi-fi router assigns the IP addresses that the devices use to communicate to the router and each other. That said, IF you ARE using a router, perhaps you are not entering the security code that the router needs to allow the device to attach to the network. If you are NOT using a router, then you still MIGHT be able to use the printer with the laptop if it has a "direct connect" capability. You would need to look at the printer documentation and instructions on how to set it up. Unfortunately, wi-fi isn't as simple as just turning it on an waiting for a connection to take place.

My laptop and HP Deskjet 3510 All-in-one printer are on wi-fi networked to my wi-fi router. My problem is that when my laptop is connected to the internet my laptop is not able to communicate with my HP...


Okay... Sound to me like the DHCP Server in your router is off..
Well, do this or have your technician login to your Router admin page ( by typing 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1, (or something similar depending on the brand and make of the router) into your browser and hitting enter) and either make sure Lan side DHCP server is on, or leave it off and just assign different static local IP's to each of your network devices ( e.g. 192.168.1.10 for you laptop and 192.168.1.11 for your printer). I think that will solve your problem if its related to an IP conflict.

Hope this Solves your problem. :)

No data internet connection


Connecting to the Internet without a Wi-Fi data plan isn't a difficult process even for a novice at utilizing and joining wireless networks. Whether you are looking to join a public Wi-Fi hotspot network or a neighbor's private Wi-Fi network with their permission, get your computer online and browsing the Internet without the use of your own Wi-Fi data plan, saving money in the process. Note these steps to get you connected in just a few minutes.

Move to an area that offers free public Wi-Fi or to an area where you believe you are close enough to pick up a neighbor's Wi-Fi signal. In the latter case, check with your neighbor beforehand to ensure it is allowed that you utilize their Wi-Fi network. Using a private network without permission is illegal. Boot up your laptop. Allow Windows or the Mac operating system to load up fully on the laptop. Click on the wireless icon on your computer's desktop area. In Windows, you will find this icon on the right side of the bottom toolbar. It appears to be a computer monitor icon with small radio waves reaching out of it. Alternatively, on a Mac laptop click on the Wi-Fi icon on the top right toolbar in the desktop area. This icon will look like a set of radio waves extending upward. Look over the list that appears once you click on the wireless icon. This list will present all the wireless network options that are within the range of your laptop. Avoid any that present with a "lock" icon beside them, because these require passwords. If you are looking to join a password-protected network like one offered by a neighbor, request the password ahead of time. In the event of a public network at a local business, a password will not be required. Click on the network you intend to join. Input the appropriate password at this point, if joining a password-protected network. Also, choose the type of security encryption the private Wi-Fi network is using. Your computer will often have this auto-selected, but you may need to select either "WPA" or "WEP" security manually. Click "Enter" on your keyboard. If you do not have the necessary password or are unsure as to the security encryption type, either contact the network administer or click "Cancel" and join a public Wi-Fi network. Allow several moments for your computer to join the network. You will receive a notification on your Windows or Mac toolbar when it does. Launch your Internet browser of choice and begin utilizing the Internet without having to rely on your own Wi-Fi data plan

I have the ASUS T101 how do I get internet access without WIFI. Is there an internet card I can get?


Hi,
Most desktop computers do not have Wi-Fi capabilities. If you wish to connect it to Wi-fi, you can use a USB Wi-fi LAN Card, which can be connected to any USB port of the PC and can be used to recieve wi-fi signals/ data. Note that PCI Wi-fi LAN Cards are also available, which are internal and added to PCI Port of the PC.

Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya!

How do i connect to mcdonolds free wifi? what do i need?


To access the Wi-Fi services in a restaurant, you need a Wi-Fi enabled device, such as a laptop or PDA. If you are unsure whether your laptop or PDA is Wi-Fi enabled, click here to determine what hardware is required.

Our local service providers provide high-quality Wi-Fi service through several convenient connection options: on-line credit card payment, subscriptions, prepaid cards, or (sometimes) promotional coupons. If you have questions or need technical help, the Wi-Fi provider's customer support number should be handy in the restaurant.

Please note that currently there are no roaming capabilities between different countries, neither for customers nor McDonald's employees. You will have to connect separately with the respective Wi-Fi service provider.

Enjoy surfing and working in your local McDonald's!

Connecting to internet


you connect the internet if your broadband router is wi-fi enable. so if you turn on wi-fi on your laptop and you get the signal. than you can access the internet on the laptop too. But for this your router should be wi-fi enable and DHCP must be set properly with in the router. so if you can access the router from your desktop by opening it in browser e.g. http://192.168.1.1 and default login id and password e.g admin you can check the status inside it. I hope this will help you in solving your problem.
