    Hi,
    I use XP & a Netgear wireless B.Band [COLOR=blue !important][COLOR=blue !important]Router[/COLOR][/COLOR] to network my desktop with the netbook.

    The HP printer is connected to the Router with a network cable.

    Tried to install the printer drivers on the desktop & netbook but the printer is not found on the network.
    Where do I go wrong?

    Is either computer connected to the router?

    Did you assign a static IP configuration to the printer or is it a dynamic connection? Do you know if the printer and router are communicating? If so, how do you know?

    SOLVED thanx all,

    1. went here :-http://192.168.0.1/setup.cgi?next_file=start.htm

    2. in "Attached Devises" found this:- # IP Address Device Name MAC Address
    a) 192.168.0.5 HP00156047D7CC 00:15:60:47[​IMG]7:CC

    3. 3. as somebody said when installing the drivers instead of search I used the enter ip manually option, & I entered both ip & MAC numbers and it found the printer & printed too.

    simple.....chick

    It worked on the desktop but not on the netbook ACER Aspire one D255, it does not allow me to type all the MAC numbers, & the iP Nos. alone are not enough to find the printer.

    Why is this happening?

    It was finger trouble, I used the printer's "devise name HP00156047D7CC" & it worked on the Netbook too, it prints via my wireles network.
