How to connect the Printer to Laptop

Product Name: HP 1055cm
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello all, 

 

I am currently connecting my HP 1055CM to my laptop with 36 pin USB to Parallel PORT IEEE 1284 cable. 

I do not have internet access to my laptop and unfortunately the cables I am using are all low quality cables and around 3 feet long. 

 

Is there any other connection methods please?

 

I am attaching the photo of the current connection cable. 

 

Thanks a lot. 

 

Kind regards,

Hi Rashed, 

Thank you for your prompt response. 

The driver has been installed already, but I can only use the cable shown above. 

I wanted to ask if there is any other cable/connection methods available?
