in the install did you set the printer as a local printer or a network printer? try connecting the printer to the pc with windows 7 directly this should load the correct driver under plug and play once it sees the printer connected. once the driver is set and you go through the install of the printer set it as a network printer.. and specify that it is connected over the interface for the wired router. hope this helps.

have you installed the printer as a shared network device with its own network path then you can install on other printers as network printer using that network path assigned to the printer

The network printer will print a test page but nothing else


whenever a printer is connected to a network it loads a driver for all the lower versions of operating systems so that if any computer from the network having a lower version gives a print command it can be spooled using that driver. On the other hand you have connected the printer to an OS of low version and printing through a higher version. Its just like connecting a printer to DOS comp and trying to print through Win 98. So now you know what you have to do. Just find your driver compatible for Win7 and connect it to win7 and you can give print through xp.

Had printer working with desktop, purchased wiless and cannot get printer to communicate.


Hi there,

Well it's better if you tell me which operating system you are using....?
anyway please follow the below steps to communicate your printer to the desktop  -

1. Check if your printer is network ready. Many newer models are designed to work on networks. Examine the documentation to see if your printer supports Wi-Fi (802.11x) or Bluetooth. 
 
2. Add network support to your printer. If your printer is not already wireless you can connect it to a wireless router using the RJ-45 Jack (it resembles a large telephone jack). You can also buy an expansion card that will add a jack or buy an external print server that will connect to the USB or parallel port.
 
3. Connect your printer to the network. If your printer is not wired, you’ll have to connect it directly to your wireless router. Connect a networking cable from the RJ-45 Jack on the printer (or adapter) to the router. Plug it into any jack except the UPLINK. The printer should automatically connect to the network when turned on.
 
4. Install printer drivers on all computers. Using the disc that came with the printer or drivers downloaded from the manufacturer, install the printer’s drivers onto each computer on the network.
 
5. Print. You should be able to access the printer just like any other wireless device. Select the printer from the Print menu when you print.

Share Your Printer in Windows
 
1. Install the printer. Set up the printer as normal on a machine that is already connected to the wireless network. Connect all necessary cables and install all necessary drivers.
 
2. Open the printers and faxes folder. Click "Start," then "Control Panel," then "Printers and Other Hardware" and then "Printers and Faxes."
 
3. Share your printer. Find the icon for the printer you just installed. Click the icon once and then select SHARE THIS PRINTER in the tasks pane on the left. Now, right click the icon, select properties and go to the SHARING tab. Click "Share Name," and then click "Okay."
 
4. Connect to the printer. On the other computers within the network, open the control panel and click "Printers and Other Hardware." Select "Add a Printer."
 
5. Select "Printer Connection." When prompted, select this option instead of the local printer. Find and select the printer you just installed and select it. 
 
6. Print as normal. Next time you print a page, send it to your networked printer.

Good Luck!!

Thanks

Want to install network printer


If you're connected to the network, and the printer is installed and shared from a server - which is the ideal way of doing it, then you should just have to go to the "add printer" wizard, select "network Printer", then browse your network for it, and connect. If it's not, then go to canon's website and download the driver's and install locally on your laptop using tcp/ip port and proper Ip address.

How do I connect a laptop to my hp 2575


I would recommend using the built in networking. You can connect your printer to the network, then use the install disk to install it. During the install wizard, make sure to select the option for the networked (TCP/IP) connected printer. You will install the printer seperately on each machine. Alternativly, you can install the printer on one machine and share it across the network. There is a button on the Sharing tab to install additional Drivers. You use this button to install the driver for the other operating system. I hope this helps. Let me know if you need more information.

Network printer


Connect one end of an ethernet cable into the ethernet port on the printer and the other one into a free port on the router. Then, using the install CD, tell it that you are attaching a printer on the network. The software should automatically detect the printer on the network and set itself up for it.
