Photosmart C4680 Wireless Printing

Hi,

 

I am trying to set up wireless printing on my C4680. I realize this printer does not have a wireless adapter within the printer, but is there no way that I can set up wireless printing through the computer it is connected to that has an internet connection?

 

Basically the printer is connected to a computer with wireless internet, and I am trying to print from my laptop on this same connection - will this still not work since the printer itself does not have a wireless componenet?

 

Thanks for the help.

It should work but is often difficult to set up.  Also, this will provide printing only, not scanning.

 

What operating system(s) are you using?

That's fine, printing is all I need.

 

The comptuer that is connected to the printer is running on Windows XP (32 bit).

 

The laptop that I am trying to print from is running on Windows 7 (64 bit).

Actually, I am not a printer sharing expert.  I know this is hard to do across Win 7 and XP.  I think the best course of action is to search this forum for answers. I know the question has been asked and solved before, just not by me Smiley Happy

Re: Photosmart C4680 Wireless Printing

I dont know why I can print from my mac to the C4680?  Any ideas?  I got the message that the set up for the printer was successful and I did download the software into my computer.

Is the printer plugged into another computer?  What operating system?  What router?
