Can I use my wi-fi without a cable connected to emachine El1852G-52W from the wireless printer?


Yes, you need to allocate a IP address to the printer within the range that the wireless Lan uses.

How do I change the touch screen keyboard to a wireless


Your printer should connect up to any USB port (small rectangular opening near where the monitor and keyboard plug in (same type of opening). If your printer is so old it has a cream colored cable and one end that has 25 pins sticking out of it, you will save money by just buying a new $30 printer. Anyhow, newer printers connect with a thinner cable like your mouse cable, is flat / rectangular on one end, and is kind of tall-igloo shaped on the other end.

If you go for the new printer, I used to hate Epson, but bought one December 2013, and it uses a lot less ink than my older Canon or HP printer. I bought one with a touch screen panel and it can print from my smart phone and all the PCs without connecting any wires. The one I bought was about $100.

Your PC has a very new wired connection (Gigabit LAN) for your home network; but unfortunately does not come with a built in wireless card. If you are also unfamiliar with the LAN cable, it is an RJ45 connector. Looks just like a phone cable, but 50% wider.

If this is unclear, feel free to add more detail or let me know what you need more clarification on.

All the best to you,
Kerry

Hp pavilion a1710n doesn't send to printer. Goes through every step,doesnt send. My laptop workds with the printer.


A few things come to mind. Are you sure the printer isn't a D4160??? The C4160 was sold in England. Anyways...

First, when you hit print a box opens up. On the top of that box make sure your printer is the one selected. It will have a green checkmark by it.

Second. Make sure the USB cable is connected between computer and printer. The Hp pavilion a1710n doesn't have a wireless network chip so it will need the USB cable connected for it to print.

I assume your laptop prints wirelessly and that is why it works and the HP does not.

Good Luck

Need wireless printer to work everytime i turn it on without trying to find new ways to make it work!


Are you using Windows? If so, when it boots (if it comes up clean then do this)
1) DO NOT TRY TO PRINT
2) Check the status of the printer (enable,disable,offline, etc)
3) The one you want to see is enable or ready.
4) By the way,you want bidirectional 'ON' because your printer won't print correctly. (That's if you have a bidirectional printer)
5) If it is showing any of the codes in step 2, try and correct them.
6) If that doesn't work, check your printer for any loose wires or connections and check the wall outlet to see if it is plugging in correctly.
7) If that doesn't work, get your owner's manual out and see if you can ran a diagnostic test on it. Some printers have a built in program that will let you do this.
8) Last but not least, go to the website of the manufacturer of your printer, go to either FAQ's or knowledge base. Look for either an error code you have seen or description of the problem.

Hope I haven't confused you to much, I just recently retired from the federal government after working on computers for 22 years.

I have just signed up to bt braodband and got a bt home hub. As a result I have a spare BT voyager 54g wireless network modem. Can I use this to print wirelessly to my lexmark printer


You can't use wireless adapter to hook printer to wireless network. You need a wireless print server. Example is Linksys or DLink Wireless-G PrintServer.

Cannot get printer hp psc2355 to work with br6215srg router can you please advise


This router has a built in print server. What type of cable setup are you using; USB, LAN, Firewire ?? All of these methods should work.

For me, I have usb printer and wireless router connected to my desktop in the office, and I use a wireless LAN laptop around the house and I can print from my wireless laptop.

Tell me what setup you want to use so we can narrow this down.
I'm assuming this is a NEW setup your trying to get started.

Unable to locate printer


Also check that:

1. It is the DEFAULT printer in the computer you are using
2. Load driver again from the manufacturer's CD and not the WIndows driver.
3. Check your USB cable and consider trying a differnt cable also.
