Connect Printer Using Long Usb Cable

Better way to connect printer and scanner? I am using printer and scanner in my house. Due to space restriction, i am not able to keep both in the same place. Then i thought of moving the scanner / printer to next room or near by convenient place and i bought a lengthy usb cable. Now with that new usb cable my computer is not detecting the either printer nor scanner. Can any one suggest a better hardware arrangement to move printer / scanner at least 15-20 feet. Recently i have seen belkin home base, seems it is very expensive.

What Printer Cable To Use To Connect Laptop To Hp Laserjet ?

What type of printer cable do i use to connect my laptop to a hp laserjet 1100 printer?

Answer:- the hp laserjet 1100 printer (happens to be one of the printers i use) doesn't take just any cable as others have said, but takes a 36 pin mini-centronics parallel interface cable, but, if you don't have a parallel port on the computer you wish to connect it to, which is more & more common with newer computers, then you'll need a usb to parallel adapter to connect it to your computer using the usb port, it supports both types of parallel interface types.

Connect Computer To Tv Through Serial Port A/v Cable

How will be the performance if we connect computer to tv through serial port a/v cable?

Answer:-

Probably pretty bad. Both rs-232 and composite video are antiquated and considered legacy standards for computers. You don't say exactly what you're doing, but try to avoid using those deprecated connections if possible.

Connect Parallel Print Server To A Usb Printer Using Converter Cable

Can you connect a parallel print server to a usb printer using some kind of parallel to usb converter cable? I have recently bought a new printer, which has a usb interface on it. But in the past, i've been using a printer with a parallel interface. I have been using a print server with a parallel port on it to connect to my old printer (which has the parallel interface) but obviously, i cannot connect this print server to my new printer, simply because it has a usb interface. Therefore, my question is, if i buy a parallel to usb converter cable and connect my new usb printer via the converter to the print server, will it work?

How Do I Connect Printer To Computer?

A few weeks ago, i got a virus on my computer t _t and it was so bad, that it even got into safe mode, so my brother and i had to do a system restore as our last resort, which we eventually had to go to. (Oh yeah, i had to run avg on it, but since i wasn't thinking, i ran both ad-aware and avg which was a really bad thing! D< so it made the computer lag and crash really bad)

And now the computer is back to the way when we first bought it, but now, when i usually scan things (before i got the virus) i went to paint, then i would turn on my printer, put the picture on the scanning section, and go to file on paint and chose "from printer or scanner. ". But now, even w/ my printer on it still won't work. When i go to "from printer or scanner" i can't even click on it ): and my computer is no longer connected to the printer. I'm not so sure how to reconnect my printer to the computer, my printer works fine when it prints, it just won't scan =(

Connect Pc To Tv Using Vga Cable

How do i connect my pc to a tv using a vga cable ?

Answer:-
There are vga to tv converters (svga cables(*) are only usable if ur computer has a svga-out (*), and i believe (only 90 percent sure) they don't carry high def video) but they are rather expensive:

http://www.Tigerdirect.com/applications/searchtools/search.asp?Keywords=vga+converter

Try aiming for hdmi when u buy a new device. Hdmi is a great connective system, it carries both hd-video and sound and is easily switchable by using a hdmi-switch. Hdmi is also used in all types of modern home-entertainment appliances and also in computers and monitors so it's the best (wired) connectivity system available today.correction: svga is a video-standard, not a connectivity standard. Sometimes svga is confused with s-video. S-video is a connectivity standard (cable) that only carries normal density video just like for instance scart:

http://en. Wikipedia.org/wiki/s-video

The only high definition connectors a comp can have for as far as i know are:
- Vga-out
- Dvi-out
-Hdmi-out

This might be a cool solution if u have a hd-tv with hdmi in, see the video:

http://www.Tigerdirect.com/applications/searchtools/item-details.asp?Edpno=5746524&catid=3667

Although u would need to find a way to keep using ur monitor, if u would want to do that, like a vga splitter or something. Or just buy a new monitor because those converters and cables and stuff are quite costly. Or upgrade ur graphical card to have 2 dvi outputs (there are cheaper dvi to hdmi adapters) (*) should be s-video.

Connect Two Laptops With Ethernet Cable

Connecting two laptops via ethernet cable is troublesome. I tried creating homegroup, it got connected in laptop with win7(ultimate) but in win7(home basic), it asks for enabling ipv6 protocol ( but when i go for enabling it, it is not happening). When should i do? Can i connect them via bluetooth and transfer my data through?

Answer:- more then likely you will use ipv4.computer to computer requires a crossover cable to connect the two. Not the more common straight through. I would user a network router. Or if you already have one then look into a switch (home routers should have switches built it).

Cable To Connect Netbook To Big Screen Tv

What type cable can i use to connect my acer aspire one netbook to big screen tv?

Answer:- it depends on the t. V. I believe your netbook has a vga port so you should be able to use that, most t. Vs have a vga port. If your tv only has a dvi port you could get a vga to dvi adapter. Cables, click on vga or dvi depending on what you decide to use: http://bit. Ly/7ca4yw
