We have a printer that we would like to hook up to two computers directly. The scanning software requires the printer to be hooked up directly to the computer and won't recognize the printer (even though it is on our network). Is there a cable we can connect the printer into, where we can then plug it into two computers in the same room? They're about ten feet apart, and one computer has the printer plugged in directly already.

I suggest to create a network connection, for the printer.
First, connect the printer directly to one of the computer and then by the network connect the printer to the second computer. The second computer will not be able to scan, but it will be able to print.

HP7210 scanner won't recognize computer

In a wireless setup, the printer needs to be installed on each machine, exactly as you would to have the printer hooked to that machine.

Follow the directions exactly, from the install program provided free from HP.

How do i connect to this printer from another laptop without a disc?

If windows will detect the printer, you can probably print, however, you may not be able to communicate with the printer for scanning functions, since the printer uses the Lexmark Imaging program to transfer the scans to the computer. Go to the control panel to ensure, under "printers", that the printer was detected, when you hook it up to computer. Some printers require the software to be installed first, in which case I'm not certain it will function, otherwise.
Try to get a copy of the Imaging program from Best Buy- sometimes they keep copies for such situation.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

How to download th software of th printer. Since i lost th driver cd. Please help me where can i download its software-

You get printer install software from the manufacturer. Usually for free. Be sure to download the correct software for your operating system, there have been lots of changes, and each one is different, no biggie, just pick the correct one.

You mention no brand name, or we could help more. Many printers SHOULD NOT be installed via "plug and play". Typically the printers lack functionality.

Just follow the directions exactly.

New things in printers are home network printers. They work similar to a printer hooked up to your machine, (meaning each computer can scan, rather than have to push buttons on the printer or go to the computer hosting that scanner, for example).

How do i scan a picture onto my computer? it's asking for a usb connection to do so, but i thought my computer & printer were already hooked up together. i didn't really think it was neccessary to have...

This could be a symptom of a bad cable. Scanning requires bi-directional communication with the computer. So print servers, usb hubs and any other poor connection will sometimes block the scanner from working when the printer works. Make sure that the Epson monitor program is running.

I hope this helps.

You have not installed the scan drivers. Go to your control panel, double click on add hardware, and run through the wizzard cycle. It should tell you exactly what you require, if it is not there, else it will just install it and you will be OK.
