Yes you need to setup the printer as a shared printer using the printer driver CD. Your shared printer and computer would need to be on your LAN and connected to a wireless router. The laptop will connect to the shares printer via the wireless router and LAN cable to the computer with the shared printer. Please click on this link and follow my instructions to setup the shared printer. http://www.fixya.com/support/r3668797-setting_up_shared_network_printer
unplug the usb cable... have the printer disconnected from the computer...open the printers and faxes under control panel in ur computer.... delete all the icons related to ur printer... once that is done, insert the installation cd which u got while u purchased the printer.... go on with the on screen instructions and keep clicking on next.... and while u install the software, the installation screen itself will ask u to connect the printer... at that time plug in the usb cable and make sure that the printer is turned on... and again go on with the on screen instructions until u hit finish... thats it!!!
If you printer does not have a built-in network card then for the laptop and computer to print via wireless to this printer either then, the printer needs to be connected to a print server or setup as a shared printer. A shared printer is the cheapest and easiest option. Please click on this link and follow my instructions to setup a shared printer :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3668797-setting_up_shared_network_printer
Yes, the printer can still be connected to your computer via the USB cable. Before connecting the printer to your computer, I suggest you insert the installation cd in your computer first. Run the software and follow the instructions on it. While it is installing, the software will also show you a step-by-step instructions on how to setup the printer itself. Hope this helps.
