    I had down loaded the HP OS X driver for this and tried to install it way before I sent this SOS email.

    I paid for the Premium Assistance Plan by PayPal. All I've gotten since is to be run around in circles trying to get me to pay for it a second time.

Do you have the driver cd of the card. For setting up a PCI card simply insert it in the pci slot and install drivers when it asks you.

I think your PCI card needs drivers

Can you add graphics card


Generally speaking, no. Most laptops have their graphics card soldered on to the main board. If you have an integrated graphics card, you cannot add one. Even if the laptop has a discrete graphics card, replacing it is a daunting task. Working on a laptop can lead to ruin if you don't know what you're doing. Even if you do get to the graphics card and remove it, the replacement card can be extremely expensive. In general, it is not worth it to try and upgrade the graphics card, or add a graphics card, to a laptop.
On a desktop, you most certainly can add a graphics card.

Options for Adding Serial Ports The serial port is prevalent on PC's ...


Options for Adding Serial Ports
The serial port is prevalent on PC's as well as scores of industrial, scientific and consumer devices, making it a convenient starting point for communications. Since RS-232 itself is only suited to short connections (50 ft. max.) many applications require that it be adapted to fit requirements. RS-422, typically used for extending RS-232 communications, provides full duplex communications between two devices. It can also provide one way communications from one master to several slaves. RS-485 communications standard allows cable lengths up to 4000 feet. It also provides very high noise immunity. Multidrop connections up to 32 different nodes can be made over a single twisted pair cable along with a signal ground connection.
This article summarizes the choices a system designer has when adding a serial (RS-232, RS-422, or RS-485) communications device. There are many different ways to add additional serial ports to your Desktop PC, Palm, or Laptop PC. USB, PCMCIA, PCI and ISA are some of the methods that will be discussed.
The Universal Serial Bus (USB) provides a high data rate and Hot Swap connection for PCs, providing an easy connection to a wide variety of multimedia and network USB devices. Generally considered to be for home or office use, USB is finding its way into Industrial applications.
PCMCIA Serial Ports are yet another way to add serial ports to a PC that has PCMCIA Slots available. Most Laptops today offer only one (if any at all) DB9 type serial ports. A PCMCIA Serial Card is a good way to add a serial port (or ports) to any laptop that is low on available serial ports (RS-232, RS-422 or RS-485).
PCI Cards are becoming more popular as a way to add serial ports to desktop PC's. PCI type slots are becoming the "norm" in standard PC's today, and PCI Serial Cards are an excellent way to add serial ports. The standard Desktop PC may only come with one serial port standard (if any serial ports at all). PCI Serial Cards use Software Drivers to address the ports to the PC.
ISA Cards are yet another way to add serial ports to the older desktop PC's. ISA type slots are becoming scarce in standard PC's today, but are still an excellent way to add serial ports. The ISA Cards are typically addressed using dip switches and shunts or jumpers to set IRQ's for each port. No Software Drivers are required with ISA style serial cards.
Palm OS PDA's may be connected to RS-422 or RS-485 data circuits using Palm adapters. These adapters offer total portability for collecting data and field service chores. The Palm device and the adapter will usually slip into a shirt pocket. Some models use the PDA's connecting cable, some include a cable and some are cradles that allow the PDA to nest in place and connect directly to the Palm base socket. PalmTerm Freeware allows you to transmit and receive data from the Palm serial port.

Hello, My laptop died, so had to get a new one. Unfortunately now I can't get to the printer which is attached to my D-Link Dir 450 because I had the WEP or whatever fancy connection and don't have the...


Hi James,

It sounds like you're halfway there. You now need to find out the IP Address that the USB convertor box is using by going into the D-link router. Note it down (including the dots separating them) and then go into the printer poperties of the printer on your laptop. (Sorry I don't which operating system you are using so I'm going to have to assume that you know how to do this. If not, drop me a line.)

Click on the Ports tab.
Click on the Add Port.. button below the list of ports
In th window that pops up click once to highlight the Standard TCP/IP Port option and click the New Port.. button underneath the selection box.
A wizard will appear. Click Next.
In the next window enter the IP Address you noted from the router noting the dots between the numbers in the Printer Name or IP Address box. (Note that the Port Name box will autofill.)
Click Next (you may have to wait a moment for the settings to take effect).
Another windows will open and the default selection is Generic Network Card. (Leave it as is and click next.)
The finish windows will appear. Check the settings . The defaults are as follows:
SNMP: No
Protocol: RAW, Port9100
Device: (The IP Address that you enterred earlier)
Port Name: IP_(The IP Address as above)
Adapter Type: Generic Network Card

Click Finish and get back the pinter properties page at the Ports tab.

Check that there is a check mark next to the port you have just created (i.e. IP_(IP Address you enterred earlier)

Click Apply and OK.

Return to the properties and print a test page.

Let me know how you go. Cheers.

How do yor connect a printer with a parrel cable to a computer without a printer port


There are many parallel port add-on cards available on the market. Ask your local computer dealer for a "PCI parallel port add-on card".
This card slots into an empty PCI slot in your computer.

The driver may already be in your computer, depending on your OS. On your windows desktop, left click the mouse on the Windows START button. Left click on CONTROL PANEL. Look for the PRINTERS icon and left click on it. When the PRINTERS window opens up, left click on ADD A PRINTER. Windows should automatically detect your printer if it is plugged into a USB port. Left click on NEXT. On the CHOOSE A PORT window left click on USE AN EXISTING PORT. On the drop down menu, choose , one of the USB virtual printer ports., and left click on it. Left click NEXT, which opens the INSTALL THE PRINTER DRIVER window. In the left box, scroll to CANON. In the right box, find your model pinter and left click on it. Left click NEXT, TYPE A PRINTER NAME APPEARS. Click NEXT,and the driver will be installed. Click NEXT and enable or disable printer sharing. Click NEXT, AND THE INSTALL IS FINISHED. print a test page .If it prints ok, go back to the PRINTERS screen. RIGHT CLICK ON YOUR PRINTER ICON, AND USE THE DROP DOWN MENU TO SET YOUR PRINTING PREFERENCES AND PROPERTIES.
