Hi, I am having a printing issue. I have 1 desktop PC, 1 pc laptop and 1 apple laptop. I also have a HP Laserjest 4200/4300 series that is hooked up to the desktop pc via serial port as well it is also conected to my Linksys wireless/wired router with a network cable. All my computers see the printer but will not print to it. Anyone have any ideas or know of a site that has a step by step on what i need to do. I desperately need this fixed so any help would be great. The mac is running OS X 10.4.9 and the pcs are running xp

Any questions feel free to ask me.

Thanks in advance,
Sean

Can you connect the printer to one of the XP machines ONLY and see if it works
also are you really using serial or do you mean Parallel cable.

if you are using serial could you also try the Parallel connection to LPT1 on one of the XP machines

lets make sure it works on one machine first

Pick one. You cannot connect the printer to both. With the printer connected directly to the router, print out a configuration page. If it does not show an IP address, you will have to configure it. Use that to set the printer up with the computers. On the PCs, select to directly connect to the printer, but not to search for it. Then create a Standard TCP/IP port. Use the IP address on the configuration page for the address. Finally, install the drivers for the printer.

I don't know how to set up the printer on the Apple, but I would guess that it is similar.
