Computer cannot find Printer

Well recently, I have been trying my best to connect my computer to my printer over my wireless network, but I have failed multiple times.

The printer is connected to my wireless network, and so is my computer, but when I go to start -> printers and faxes -> add printer -> add printer on wireless network, my computer just can't find it.

I need the printer connected by tomorrow, so I am in need of desperate help.

- Windows XP
- Verizon Fios Interner Modem

Hi,

 

Have you installed driver and software of the printer on your XP mahine yet ? You need them first.

 

Regards.

Re: Computer cannot find Printer

I do have the software downloaded but not updated. Ill try updating it and if that doesn't work, ill just try reinstalling it and starting from the beggining.

I may also use the HP Doctor, so wish me luck.
