can I use my wireless printer if it is connected to the main computer with the USB cable?

My main computer runs XP Professional and is not wireless capable (that I know), my laptop running Windows 7 is wifi enabled, it can independently connect to the internet and printer (Photosmart 5510) is wifi capable but that is currently connected to the main computer with a USB cable.

My question: can I use the printer to the host computer by USB and computer laptop through wireless?  If yes how to configure connections? Thank you.

Hello

A small wifi Wireless USB on the XP machine should work just fine. You can OpenOffice.org printer to two computers wireless. I don't think that a machine can access the printer if you plan to use the USB connection or wireless. I have not tried yet, maybe next weekend.

Kind regards

    Firefox stores your personal data in a place known as the Firefox profile folder separate from its installation folder/files. The extensions folder Addons, although some addons may store additional data in the profile of top-level folder, extensions.ini and extensions.sqlite has the info of addons, places.sqlite holds the bookmarks and history, the prefs.js has Preferences, signons3.txt + signons.sqlite files are needed for the passwords and finally sessionstore.js for tabs.

    If AT & T has provided the modem, you can give them a call and explain the problem you are having. They should be able to help you. If you did not have all that in place, then it would be a little difficult to explain what you need to do... but... basically you would need to connect the modem and check the settings there and make sure your printer match the parameters.

  • After you have installed windows 10, I can't use apple wireless key board and mouse magic. any solution

    I am facing a strange situation. I used Win7 on BootCamp. Last week attempted to upgrade to Win10. After the upgrade is perfect, I could not connect to the wifi or wired internet. called the Apple support, Windows supports, no one would help you. Downgraded to Win7, after decommissioning, apple wireless key board and mouse magic does not work. Called Apple support, after nearly 90 minutes of interaction with them, ZERO, no solution result. Apple support told me that an Apple engineer will call me at my appointed time. A call came, but no one answered.

    So, today did a clean install of Win10 through BootCamp. All right, BUT I still can't use apple wireless key board and mouse magic. Can someone help me with this situation? Apple & Microsoft support engineers have failed to help out me. Thanks in advance.

    Have you installed the Boot Camp Windows Support software?

    As the HP Installation Wizard does not work with the Mavericks, is there another way to get my printer wireless connected to my wifi network?

But my DSL provider has recently installed a new router, so I have a new wifi network which works fine with everything else.

  • can you use a deskjet 970cse in black only mode when the color cartridge dries up

    can you use a deskjet 970cse in black only mode when the color cartridge dries up? Thank you, Jerry

    banhien information is very accurate. I would just add a bit of it. Because this printer uses a tricolor cartridge and a black, it should be one of the printers that will print with just the black cartridge installed. It is called print in backup mode. I should happen automatically when you remove the color cartridge and try printing. A message will arrive on the printer or the computer and ask you if you want to print in backup mode. Say yes, and it should let you print. Hope that helps.

  • Can I use my iPhone 6 bought in Hong Kong in the Canada?

    Can I use my iPhone 6s bought in Hong Kong in the Canada?

    Your question can mean two things:

    1. Can I use my iPhone to the Canada?  I'll be there for a short period of time and wish to use there, but continue to keep my current (based in Hong Kong) cellular service provider.  I know I'm paying expensive roaming charges for my use of telephone and cellular data.
    2. Can I use my iPhone to the Canada?  I bought it in Hong Kong, but will live in the Canada and wish to use a Canadian cell phone company, once I am there.

    The answer to (1) is certainly!

    The answer to (2) is I'm not sure, but I do not.  To have any hope of answer (2) 'Yes', you at least should:

    • Have the cellular carrier based in Hong Kong to unlock iPhone (I don't think that they do so at all - I know that they would not be if the iPhone has begun on the Japan.)
    • Have the cellular company Canadian base to use methods of transmission and/or frequencies (e.g. GSM) accepts the iPhone from Hong Kong.

    When I connect my Ipad or Iphone to my computer via a USB cable, I can open the storage folder without using a password. How can I avoid someone else do the same?

    This storage folder are you referring? If you are referring to the film, what happens because you have accepted a trust between the iOS device and the computer. If the device has been connected to another computer, it must be unlocked and establish a relationship of trust as well. If you are referring to something different, please explain.

    Otherwise, any application that does not require an Internet connection in real time for use should work just fine.
