Printer On A Wireless Network Without Having It Connected To Computer

Okay so my family wants to buy a printer that can be used on our wireless network without having it connected to a computer (so the computer doesn't have to be on, they won't leave computers on). Anyways my father was wanting to get a fax/copier/printer combo. Do printers today have like a wireless antenna that can get on a wireless network? Is there an attachment that will put it on a wireless network? Or can we connect it directly to the wireless router? And, which way is the best way?

Can Pc Connected To Wireless Network Router Via Ethernet Will Work ?

Can a desktop be part of a wireless home network if it is connected to a router via ethernet?

Answer:- not only can it, but it's a good idea. Letting wireless computers get to the router's administration pages is just asking to have the network hijacked out from under you by an unscrupulous neighbor. Wireless administration should be turned off, and only cabled computers allowed to get to the admin pages.

Using Printer Connected By Wifi

How do you use your printer connected by wifi? I have just recently connected my printer to my wifi connection but i don't get how to use it now?

Answer:- my printer is wireless as well. What you do is load the disk into your laptop, or whatever your device is, then follow the instructions on there. Mine has me connect with a usb cable. After that, it'll instruct you to connect wirelessly with the network you use. I always have a problem with when i change my network. It has to stay with the same network or else it won't print.

Printing From Laptop Through Printer Connected To Pc

I am trying to print from my laptop through the printer connected to my pc. I have wireless internet. So far i tried this after searching around in the internet. Both printer and pc are vista and printer is canon. I did "start" then "printers and faxes". Select the printer and right click, click "sharing" then "share this printer" then "ok". Now go to your laptop and click "start", "printers and faxes", on the far left click "add printer", click "next" then "network printer", click "browse", i tried doing this and the printer isnt showing up.

Print From Printer That Is Connected To Another Computer

How do i print off a printer that is connected to another computer? I have a modem that both computers are plugged into. The printer is plugged into one of them. I downloaded the driver for both computers. I want to print stuff from the computer that the printer isn't connected directly to. Answer:- let's call the computer that the printer is attached to, a, and the other computer as b. Enable file / printer sharing on a. Mark the printer on a as shared (put a password is better). Install the printer driver on b. Make sure a and b are on the same workgroup/domain/network (i.e. They can see each other in network neighborhood or whatever it's called nowadays). Browse to the network/workgroup from b, and find the shared printer, then connect to it. Now you should be able to print to it.

Printing To Printer Connected To Mac Through Pc

Alright so i have been having this problem that has been going on for a few days now. Every night after i get home from school i spend hours trying to figure out how to get my windows 7 laptop to print to my printer that is connected to my imac. Now, my imac is not connected to my wireless router. My imac is connected to my router using airport and the printer is connected to my imac via usb. I have installed the printer through windows and then ran the drivers and the printer is on my computer. I go to print and in the queue all it says is "spooling" and it stays like that for about 5, maybe 10 minutes and then disappears and nothing ever prints. So then i installed bonjour on my pc and ran that. It installed the printer again, but this time with a different name. I figured it would work because its an official apple thing, and well, i assumed it would fix the problem. But it did not. So i have tried troubleshooting, nothing works. I have printer sharing checked off on my mac settings. I also have smb sharing for windows computers. If it makes a difference, i can access my windows computer as a server through my imac to share files. Don't know if that changes anything. So yea, if anyone might know how to help me here i would greatly appreciate it. I have been struggling with this for days now and all i want is my setup to work correctly.

Cannot Access Printer Connected To Network Computer

Why can i not access a printer connected to another networked computer, even though i can access its documents? I have a desktop that has two printers connected to it via usb. The desktop is configured for network access, and is accessible by every computer in the house. I have three laptops with a wireless connection. All three can successfully connect to the desktop and see it's documents and connected printers. Only two of these three laptops can access the printer and print on it. The two laptops that can print have windows 7 and vista. The third laptop that cannot print has vista. It can see the desktop, it can connect to the desktop, it can see files, read files, and create files on the desktop. However, when i try to add the printer from the desktop to the list of printers on the laptop, it says access denied - however the other two laptops added the printer fine and can print without any trouble. Again, this one laptop that can't print seems to have full access to the desktops files. Any idea how to get this third laptop to add and send print jobs to the printer connected to the desktop "hub" computer? Because "add a new printer" button isn't working and continues to give me errors.

Connected 120v Printer To 220v Power Voltage

What will happen if i connected a120v printer to a 220-240v extension? I live in sri lanka where the voltage is 220-240v and i bought a printer from ebay (epson workforce 610), from a seller in the us but i did not know it was 120v. I used a separate power cord from my other printer because the i did not have an extension supporting the plug supplied originally. The printer worked fine for about one minute but suddenly i heard a sound (not loud) and some smoke came from under the printer but the printer was working, i instantly unplugged the printer from the extension. Then the smoke stopped, i haven't switched on the printer after that. I want to know whether can use the printer again by using a voltage converter, whether the fuse has broken and whether i can put a new fuse to my printer and use it again.

Computer Won't Stay Powered Off

An out of the blue problem, whenever i try to shut down my computer or put it in sleep mode, it'll just fire right back up. It'll go through the shut down process, power off for a second, and then immediately fire back on. However, if i hold down the power button on the computer, it will stay off. Only when i try to shut down through windows 7 does it fire back up. I updated my mobo's bios to latest version and that didn't help. The only thing i can think of is there's a device in my device manager that is turning the computer back on, however this has only started a week ago so if this was the case wouldn't it have always been doing this? Any help is much appreciated! Build in sig but here's a summary:

Windows 7 64x rc1
E8500 cpu
Asus p-5q e
Xfire radeon 4850

I have recently fitted a k7s741gxmg-6l mobo as a replacement for my asus a7n266-vm. I am using all the original peripheral components e.g keyboard & mouse etc. Which all worked fine with my old setup. I have the usual niggles that i am working thro', but the wife thinks this one is the most important one and has to be sorted first under pain of death and the withdrawal of certain privilages, so here goes. When i switch off the pc, the light on the optical mouse stays lit as does the num lock light on the keyboard. Both plug into the ps/2 ports. The keyboard & mouse were bundled with the pc when i bought it 4 years ago and are from the logitech intili range. I have installed drivers for both but no change. I canít find anything in bios which might change this. Any ideas anyone?
