Goto to the properties of the Printer - one of the tabs should be for sharing. Set the printer up for sharing. Now goto the each computer control panel and make workgroup called your intinals-home. This is important. All computers need to be a part of the same workgroup for it to see the printer. after all that is done - reboot everything and be paient - it will appearafter 5 minutes or so.

Why can't I connect my printer to my desktop?


It sounds like you are trying to connect wirelessly.
Have you reset the printer settings?
Also the printer software needs to be loaded.
If you do not have the disk, go to: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en&product=3390949&
choose your operating system and download the complete software package.
Hook up the printer by cable and install the software (follow the instructions the install gives).
Also, if the printer was hooked up in a network, you will have to reset the network information on the printer. The HP site above has instructions and manuals that can be downloaded.

I received a 7" wireless


the at&t wireless is probably USB modem driven. unless you use an Ipad. Try the 3g modem and see if it allows you to input the settings which you will have to call at&t for. what is the make and model of your mini notebook? I would be more than happy to look up settings for you.

Macbook and wireless n setup how do you set it up????!!!!!


Can you clarify the problem for me:

1. Mac Type = Macbook
2. Operating System = Mac OS ?
3. What are you trying to connect to?

For example are you trying to set up a Wireless Home network, meaning that iPhones, iPods or other macs can share the one Internet Connection. This is called a Computer-to-Computer Network.

OR are you trying to configure a Wireless Modem to work with your MacBook?

Setting up a Computer-to-Computer Network is done by:

1. Select System Preferences from the Apple Menu.
2. Select Network from the Internet & Wireless section.
3. Select Airport from the list of devices.
4. Click the Turn Airport On button, located next to Status. NOTE: If it is already turned on then this button will read Turn Airport Off.
5. Select Create Network from the drop down menu adjacent Network Name.
6. Type in the preferred name that you wish to call your network in the Name field. (ie., MacBookHomeNetwork or something)
7. Select the Channel (Channel 11) is an OK one to select.
8. Choose whether you want the user to type in a password to gain access to your network. (This is recommended.) If you do, then click the check box beside Require Password.
8.1 Type in the Password into the Password field.
8.2 Type the Password again into the Verify field.
8.3 Select the type of encryption you want to use, 40bit or 128bit.
9. Click the Show Airport status in Menu Bar check box.

NOTE: If you require advanced settings, then click the Advanced ... button.

10. Apply and then go back to the System Preferences window (using the Left Arrow located top/left of window). If you get stuck, get back using Instruction No.1 above.)
11. Click the Sharing Icon in the Internet & Wireless section.
12. Select from the list each item you wish to share (i.e, File, Printer, Bluetooth, Internet, DVD or CD etc...).

NOW : From your other device, you need to locate the new Wireless Network Connection.

If it is an iPhone or iPod then go to the Settings menu and select Wi-Fi from the list. The new network should be picked up automatically. Log in to it (if you set up passwords).

I hope this helps. Regards,

Mac printer Hp Printer


It's because your printer is set for sharing on a windows based network. Mac has a different network for sharing printers not compatible with windows.

The only way to get it to work on the network is to get a print server either wired or wireless and connect the printer that way to your network. Then everyone can use it.

Does it say limited connection to network? You're connecting it through a wireless router right? Do you see your wireless router when you search for networks?
I had similar problem with my previous Dell laptop. Wireless use to work untill one day it just stopped, found the networks, but kept giving me limited connection whenever i tried to connect. I found out the problem is linked with the driver. Dell laptop i had was also on XP OS.
Maybe try reinstalling the drivers. After I formatted my computer and reinstalled drivers, it started working again.
Hope this helps.

Hi Ed, if your using windows you can open network connections & run network setup wizard. Follow the instruction for a home network for the wireless PC's & notebooks. Once the network is setup for all PC's than you can install the printer cd software in the PC's that you want to access the printer. Each PC & notebook will have access to the printer through the network.
The PC that that is connected to the printer needs to be shared.
Open printers and Faxes. Right click once on the printer & left click sharing. Agai follow the instructions.
Lastly,I strongly suggest you setup security for your wireless. If you do not anyone close can tap into your network connection. Follow linksys instruction to setup security. If you run into a problem you can call linksys for free advise from a pro. Their number is listed in the manual.

Good Luck! Take your time.

Got a FreeLan 802.11g wireless


You need to plug it into your computer and run the drivers on the disk that probably came with it. A reboot may be necessary, but do one anyway. Then if you go into control panel and look for your network settings it should come up as a wireless network connection. You will have to configure it from there. As each manufacturer is different, you will have to read the book I'm afraid. I have only been able to find Italian instructions, I guess you will see an indicator in your system tray (bottom right of screen) and if you hover over it you will see it is called the same as your card. You can click or right on it, and you get a configuration tool up and it will allow you to do a scan of the airwaves. If your router is on it should detect it. You then have to right click the network device and choose properties and configure the SSID and the secret key of your wireless router and match all the other settings on it so that they are both talking the same "language"

How can I add a printer to my router so that it will be wireless


Because printers and networks vary, the best instructions for setting up and networking your printer should be in its users manual. Also, your network-ready printer may have come with installation software that can help you share the printer over the network.

There are three main steps you need to take when networking a printer, including the following: Enable the File And Printer Sharing setting, Make the printer available to all users, and Direct PCs to the printer.
