you have this cord that comes with your printer and you hook it up to your printer and computer and there it is done!

You hook two computers to one modem by getting a router. Then you hook the router to the modem and you hook each computer to the router. You can also run your printer from the router. If your computer has bluetooth or wireless, modern routers can communicate with your computer or printer in a different room.

Any printer will work with any computer if it has the drivers. Apple has basic printer drivers for most printers built in but some printers need specific drivers. If you can find Mac drivers for that Dell model printer then all you have to do is hook it via USB or Wireless.

A computer printer is a device used to hook up to a computer and print files. Many now also scan, can be Bluetooth connected, fax, and read SD cards.

A peripheral is any device that you hook up to your computer. Examples of some would be printer, scanner, keyboard, mouse, etc

It depends entirely on what the printer has for a connector. USB, Firewire or Ethernet/wireless. Make sure you have the printer drivers installed on your computer first for your particular model of printer before you hook the USB, Firewire or ethernet cable up to the computer. You can also go to the printers web site and look in their support area for any updated drivers and they usually have the manuals you can download also.

The printer driver resides on the computer. It is the software that tells the computer how to talk to the printer.

It usually means the printer utility can't "find" the printer so it has paused the printing until it can see it. Either turn the printer on, hook the USB cable up or make sure you are on the same network node as the printer.

Generally, a wireless software requires software to hook up with a computer. This software is included with the printer and should be compatible with most popular operating systems.

You need a printer that is a wifi printer or a printer you install on the computer. Once you do that you can send things to the printer.

Printer will not print from computer if: 1. The printer is not connected to computer 2. The printer Driver is not installed on the computer 3.

Someone can attach a network printer to a standalone computer by using a USB connection. Using a cord to attach the printer to the computer, then installing the printer software, someone can then use the printer from the computer.

You can't you have to use a wireless printer when you print it will send it to the printer via wifi

It is known as a local printer, as opposed to a network printer, which is a printer connected to a network.

using a usb cable which is a connection between the computer and the printer only or wirelessly which means everyone on the network can use the printer but only if computer and printer is wireless

Since I don't have a wireless printer I must attach the printer cable to my computer to print documents. I attach the Christmas bulb to the Christmas tree limb using a small metal hook.

A network printer is shared by more than one computer. A local printer is directly connected to one computer.

IF the printer has an Ethernet port then yes.

If the printer is connected to another computer via a cable, then you need something for the wireless computer to connect to. It would either have to connect to a wireless router or you could have a wireless card in the other computer and configure the two to talk to each other. But using a router is a far better solution. Then you can setup the printer as shared from the first computer and configure the two comptuers to be in the same workgroup and share it that way.

1) You hook the printer up to a computer and make it shareable on the local network. You can then go to other computers on the network and add a a new printer connected to a local LAN2) Purchase a mini-print server device, such as this one: and hook it up directly to the printer. The print server then connects to the local network through a standard Ethernet cable.

To check whether a printer is shared or not go to devices on the computer and note whether the printer is listed for that particular computer. Do this for each computer in question.

Is the printer buffer in the printer or in the computer?
