Wireless Printer Not Connecting


I have installed a wireless printer on my computer. I am able to connect the usb cord from my printer to my computer, and print just fine, but when i try to print wirelessly, my computer pops up a message saying that the communication could not be accessed. It gives suggestions on how to fix the problem, which i have done all of except for 1. It says to check the firewall to see if it allows the computer to read the printer. But i don't know how to find the printer option in my firewall section. How do i get my wireless to work on my computer?

Connecting To Home Wireless

I'll try to describe this as simply as possible. I cannot connect to my home's wireless. I can connect to my neighbors (not password protected) and my church's (password protected) networks, and begin to connect to my neighbors password protected wireless networks. My home's internet is up and running; there are multiple machines using it right now, including 3 laptops, a computer and a ps3. As i am running windows 7 on my macbook pro through bootcamp (3. 1), i can even boot into mac osx and i will be connected. The problem is this operating system, which i installed yesterday.

I think i messed up when i chose "public" network instead of "home" or "private" network during the installation. I think i've tried everything and any help is greatly appreciated. The message i get when i try to connect is essentially "windows was unable to connect to this network" note that this does happen with a few other networks around the area.

Blue Screen When Connecting To Wireless Network

My computer crashes and shows a bsod very often. The thing is that happens usually when i'm connected to a wireless network in my office. I thought it was some problem with the office wireless network, but then it happened with the network of a hotel i was staying in some time ago. And those are the only situations when it happens. At home it works just fine, without any problems. What should i do?

Wireless Network Not Working On Netbook Connecting Through Desktop

Wireless network was working at first but now it will not allow my netbook to connect through the desktop. Sometimes it works but then stops. I got a new desktop with a netbook and all worked great at first but now the netbook cannot connect to the wireless network. I unplugged the router and reset and that worked for a few days but now it says it cannot connect to the wireless network again. Diagnosis does not find any problems. Router is about 5 years old.could that be the problem? It's a 2 wire that came with the att service.

Connecting To Shared Printer From Win7 To Xp

Connecting to a network printer on my existing all-xp network with my new win7 pci have an existing small business network with an okidata c5150 printer connected via usb to one of the pc's. I can print from any of the exiting pc's with no problem. My new pc running win7 can see the printer, can connect to the printer, but when i try to print, it shows the document is spooling (for hours) and never prints.

After restarting the win7pc, the document is still in the que, but not printing or spooling. I can restart or cancel, but the document just sits in the que, showing the last action (canceling or restarting), without ever printing or deleting. When i check the printer que on the host pc, it shows the document. If i print a document from another pc, i can not see it on the win7 que. I've connected the printer directly to the win7 machine and can print with no problem, but couldn't get any of the other pc's to see the printer when i set it up to share from the win7 machine. What am i doing wrong and how can i fix it?

Background: i have an existing printer (hp color laserjet 2600n) which works well with my old pc (windows xp)

I've just bought a new pc with windows 7 home premium (64-bit).

I have downloaded hp's newest driver for windows 7(64-bit) to my new pc.
"Hp_clj_2600-hb-pnp-win64-en"

I've connected the printer to the new pc via an usb cable

Problem:
Windows 7 will not install the new printerdriver.
The new pc repports:
Missing usb connection
"Unnown device"
"Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)"

This is already tried without solving the problem:
Restarting the pc
Restarting the printer
Device and printers/troubleshoot
Usb port controlled (it works fine with an usb memory stick)

Question:
How shall i get a usb connection to my printer ?

Sharing Wireless Network Between Win 7, Xp, Wireless Printer

I had no trouble sharing my wireless network when the desktop was xp and the laptop was xp. Since replacing the desktop with a new windows 7 unit, i cannot manage to set up a network. I just purchased a new wireless printer, and i cannot set it up wirelessly either. I can network the printer to work with the win7 desktop if i connect the printer to my router with a ethernet cable. My router sees all 3 devices and i can ping the printer and the laptop from the desktop. The desktop is connected to the router via ethernet cable.

Printer Problem Connecting Via Usb Error 0x0000007a

I recently connected my hp deskjet2360 printer via usb to my hp laptop (running w7 home premium 32bit) and cannot print at all. When i try to print a test page i get the following msg 'operation could not be completed. Error 0x0000007a. Operation failed. My usual setup is to have my printer connected to my desktop computer (winxp pro).

My hp laptop is connected via wireless connection to my home network, to which my desktop is also connected. Obviously this means that i have to have the desktop switched on in order to print from my laptop. Everything was working fine until i decided that i would rather have my printer connected to directly to my laptop via usb.

When i connect the printer via usb to my laptop, windows installs the software and reports no problems. Yet when i try to print a test page i get the mentioned error. When i then reconnect the printer to the desktop and try to print a test page across my network i get exactly the same error message. The desktop and printer are still working fine, it's just that i cant print from my laptop.

I have un-installed and re-installed the printer on my laptop both with the usb connection and across the network but it still doesnt work. The troubleshooter on the laptop reports no problems, and the printer is set as default printer. I also get a further error msg when i click on the preferences button in printer properties: function address 0x5aeba4f1 caused a protection fault. (Exception code 0xc0000005) some or all property pages may not be displayed.

The only way i have found to get around this is to use windows restore and to roll back my laptop to before the point when i connected the printer via usb. Any suggestions?

Using Both Wired And Wireless Connection - 1 For Internet 1 For Printer

Using both a wired connection and wireless connection - one for internet access, one for printer access. We have a business dsl account, where we get 5 static ip addresses. We use the dsl router to connect 2 computers, a nas, and another wireless router, to provide access to others.

We have a networkable hp officejet 8500 a909g, but no longer have any more available ports to add it to the network. What i contemplated doing was hard-wiring the printer to the wireless router, then using the wireless card on my laptop, and a wireless adapter on the desktop (these are the 2 computers hard-wired to the dsl router) to connect to the wireless router, allowing us to see the printer and use it.

However, whenever i do this, the wireless connections seem to take precedence over the wired connections, which sort of negates the fact that they are wired in the first place. Is there a way to give the wired connection precedence, and then using the wireless only when we need to print? And does the computer being connected to two networks at one cause any problems?

Hp Photosmart C6300 Wireless Printer Issue

Connecting a new windows 7 laptop (sony vaio) to an existing hp wireless printer that will be shared with two existing xp computers - one laptop and a desktop. After connecting my new sony vaio, which is running windows 7, to an existing wireless hp photosmart c6300 printer, a second laptop in my home (running xp) can no longer access the wireless printer; the printer had been removed from the computer. I set up a home group unintentionally when i set up the printer on my new laptop.

I was asked if i was going to "share a printer" and i selected "yes", but i do not need a home group because i'm not sharing anything other than the printer. I have uninstalled the printer on my windows 7 laptop and reinstalled it, but it seems once the home group is set up, it is there to stay. I'm able to print from the windows 7 computer as well as the desktop xp, but not the second xp laptop. Any ideas on how to remedy this issue?

Problem Printing Through Wireless Printer Server

Problems printing with hp950c through a d-link dp-g310 wireless printer server after upgrade from windows vista to windows 7. I have a sony vgnz790dib that came with windows vista. I could access and use a hp950c inkjet printer through a d-link dp-g310 wireless printer server with vista. I upgraded to windows 7 yesterday and now cannot use the printer.

A dell xps 1330 running vista works fine. As far as i can tell, the ip address for the printer server on the sony is identical to that on the dell. I ran troubleshooter for the printer and there was no problem uncovered. I then went online to see if others had the same problem but could not find any identical problems. I went to hp online and found that there was an updated software which i downloaded and also connected the printer directly to the sony via usb and still no printing. Any advice on what to do next?

Hp Photosmart C6180 Wireless Printer Problem

I've wrestled with this problem for several weeks. I have a hp dv3 laptop on a homegroup network. I have an hp photosmart 6180 (wireless) printer. My desktop pc can print, my wife's laptop can print, but i cannot. When try to print everything seems to go as it should with no errors, no delays. To all intents i should have a printout, but i don't. My wife has the same model laptop, and can print directly to the printer using her installed drivers, or via homegroup printer sharing with our desktop.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled and everything seems ok. The hp solution centre tells me the printer is there and even allows me to access the printer settings on an html page from my laptop. I even can see the ink level, but i cannot print. My laptop is windows 7 home premium, my wife the same and the desktop has win 7 ultimate.

Rdp Not Connecting

I have windows 7 pro 64bit installed on two laptops. I have remote access enabled on both and i have setup port forwarding on the router on the home laptop for port 3389 (rebooted router of course). Rdp used to always work prior to my reload.

Now, i cannot connect. Both laptops are live, sleep/suspend mode is disabled and from my netbook i provide the proper static ip address for sure. I still cannot connect odd enough and i don't know why. I have rdp enabled in windows firewall on my home laptop, the one i'm trying to connect to.

Any suggestions?
