Unable to connect a wireless printer with laptop computer since the reset wireless router

I have a wireless HP C4580 printer that connects to my Acer Aspire laptop using windows 7. The two have worked together very well for months.  My wireless router stopped working a few days ago, so I had to unplug the device to make it work again is it.  But since then, I can't get my lap top to communicate with the printer now.
I went all the problem of shooting and insured the printer is on line and set it as default printer. I even did a system restore, as suggested in the troubleshooting
With the help of the program are the two messages that I get now troubleshooting
1 that the C4500 series can be contacted via the network (this is the message that I had before the restoration also)
2 the C4500 series is not shared with the homegroup

All the tips are greatly appreciated in progressive simple language as possible as I am a bit useless with computers

I assume that the printer is all first directly connected on the router, then the laptop?  Access the router and make sure that the printer is listed as a "wireless client" connection  If this isn't the case, you should probably restore the wireless "link" between the printer and the router then the printer should work.

  • HP officejet 7500 E910: unable to connect my HP printer to laptop

    I can't get my laptop (Toshiba Satellite) to connect with my printer HP, (Officejet 7500 E910). This printer was working with this computer until I experienced connection problems. Thought it was my router and replaced by the new router, (BelkinAC1750 DB). Router works fine with the laptop and another, (which has Windows 8.1). I can't connect either wired or wireless for printer or PC. I rebooted to update software that is recommended with this printer that is listed as compatible with windows 10 twice. When I run the HP software to solve problems, it shows the installation is successful, but I get a file error when I try to print.  I tried to reconnect several times to the network, but I think that the IP address on the printer set up display is wrong, but I don't know how to check this. The HP software troubleshooting help gives this as a problem, (the IP address is incorrect or a wireless network).  I disable firewall and antivirus with no result. I read all the suggestions I can find without success. I would like to reset the printer to the original configuration, but I can't find the method to do it. I think the problem is with the printer. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    I discovered how to reset my default settings for the touch screen of the printer. It's under the 'Tools' menu, I didn't just not scrolled to the bottom. I have reset to the factory settings and then you had to use the HP printer Assistant, but I connected the printer to the network successfully with the correct IP, The two PC is now no trouble-free printing. I don't know how I got into this mess, but I know that it is with your help that I managed to find a solution. Thank you for your time and your efforts. You saved me time and money.

  • Unable to connect encrypted wireless router.


    XP Professional version 2002 SP2.

    Intel wireless wifi link 4965AG.

    Here's my question:

    At one point, the wireless router had no security encryption and I could access without worries.

    In my absence router security has been formatted and now I can't access. Located keys and input for connection - no joy. Router error message is out of scope (showing full signal strength - I should mention that 3 others in my office can connect without a problem and I have no problem connecting to my home wireless with WEP encryption).

    Open 'show the wireless connection' then open advance settings.

    Click on 'general tab' and make sure that the IP address and DNS have the value 'Auto '.

    Click on "wireless networks" and manually add the router. WPA2-personal network authentication and AES data encryption (this information has been lifted of my colleagues who has no problems PC connection). Therefore, I set up my PC as WPA - PSK (no option for WPA2-Personal) and AES and enter the correct key.

    I checked the box 'automatically connect when range' and approved my way. Still no connection. Clicked on signal connect manually and get "Please wait...". "but nothing happens - no error either.

    I tried any variation in the encryption of data and authentication and verified/double concievable checked the key but nothing helped.

    DOE anyone have ideas?

    See you soon.

    The problem is that your network is WPA2 and your PC does not support WPA.

    You must install Windows XP SP3, which adds support for WPA2.  See this article:http://support.microsoft.com/kb/322389

  • Unable to connect to wireless networking

    My Toshiba laptop has been pre-installed with Windows 7 Home premium 64 - bit OS and it worked quite well with the BB wireless. However, the wireless internet was on and turned off in recent weeks, while other mobile devices, such as iphone, ipad, or laptop, in my household had no such problem. The wireless signal was so strong, but the error message always says "unable to connect to wireless networking. It seemed that there was something wrong with the wireless adapter.

    I got a new adapter properly installed TP-Link wireless. Fortunately, it worked; but unfortunately, it worked for less than 24 hours. It was really frustrating that I, like student full time, depended so much on the wireless network card.

    Help, please! Harry


    You can enlighten us with:

    -What model do you use (eg..) L300-123)
    -What version of BIOS is installed?
    -WLAN driver do you use?

    All these questions are answered in PC Diagnostics are under Toshiba app folder in the start menu.

    I'm unable to connect to wireless modem, the message's problem is the network cable is unplugged got new cable still

    Hello Verashanley

    Since how long did begin?
    You have added a new software or hardware to the system?
    If the issue took place recently then you can try the system restore.
    If you have recently added anything to the system (hardware or software), then remove.
    If the system restore does not then check in Device Manager and verify that the network card is considered and no errors appear.
    To open Device Manager, click Start, and then click Control Panel. Click performance and Maintenanceand then click System. In the hardware tab, click Device Manager.
    Check the type of network card you have and that you try to update the drivers from the hardware manufactures Web site.
    Also, check the connection for the network adapter. Do you see any physical damage. When you plug the NIC saw all the lights on the network card lights up? If not, then you can deal with a hardware problem and need to contact the manufacture of the system and see about obtaining the card replaced.
    Let me know the results. Thank you.

  • Satellite A505 - sees, but cannot connect to, Wireless Router Win7

    I have a laptop Toshiba A505-S6980 running the 64 bit version of Windows 7.

    It worked fine a few months previously, to connect wireless to my O2 2 wireless router (the notebook has a REALTEK RTL8191SE wireless card).

    I also have a desktop running XP computer that I use to connect to the same router. While on the desktop, I noticed several weeks ago that the router has been implemented with no WPA and WEP security, so I decided to change the router to WPA. The desktop PC was fine with this, but the laptop complained and wouldn't connect, failure of authentication and just stating "unable to connect to xxxxx". At the time I assumed it just couldn't handle the WPA authentication for some reason any and decided that I would probably turn to WEP to a later date to make it work again. At some point, I remove a ' O2 Connection Manager ", which had been installed when I bought a 3G dongle O2, where he has confused the issue, but it made no difference. In the meantime, I tried to connect the laptop using a wired connection and worked well.

    I now (a few weeks later) decided that I wanted to use the wireless laptop then redefine the router to WEP expect this to work, but it didn't. As with WPA, he did not get past authentication when I put the key to security in. So, I try to understand the problem...

    What happens;

    (1) the wireless laptop sees my router (and neighbors), but just cannot connect.

    (2) I can connect with a laptop computer on the same USB wireless adapter.

    (3) I can connect the laptop to the router using a wired connection, and there is no problem.

    (4) my desktop running XP computer can connect to the router as WEP or WPA Wireless if the router is ok.

    (5) this worked several weeks ago!

    What I've tried;

    (1) I have installed the latest REALTEK RTK8191SE driver.

    (2) I tried to disable the security on the router, no joy.

    (3) I deleted all the profiles of network on the laptop.

    (4) I have tried with Norton antivirus and firewall disabled (but have not uninstalled) but no help.

    (5) I tried to do a restore of the system to the closest possible point and no help.

    (5) I uninstalled the wireless network adapter and its driver in Device Manager... Windows 7 can see the of it after a reboot and re - installed (using the old default driver), but it does not work. Then, I re-installed the latest version from REALTEK to ensure that it is up-to-date.

    What's weird is that

    (1) it works ok using the wireless USB adapter

    (2) the integrated REALTEK wireless adapter works to a point such that it can SEE my router, connect simply do not

    (3) authentication failure almost instantly

    My suspicions are that an automatic update of Windows 7 or the O2 Connection Manager has somehow screwed it upward. I have uninstalled the O2 connection manager and tried to uninstall the automatic updates but there are many of them and I don't know how far back, I need to go. Also, because it authentication immediately, it seems that it is not giving him a chance to actually work.

    Does anyone have any ideas on how I can proceed or had a similar problem?

    This is a really silly situation. In any case, I recommend you to use the Toshiba WLAN drivers only.
    I put t know what Realtek module is inside but try please install driver WLAN http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/wlan/?page=downloads

    All that you have done is logic and I think I will try the same thing.
    Have you tried to connect to WEP or WPA is disabled? I mean free WLAN without protection.
    Have you tried to connect your laptop to a friend's router?

    I really put t know what is the problem here but there are a few bad setting it.
