Using a printer not connected to a computer
Asked Sep 20, 2006, 05:28 PM
I have an HP Printer, which has an ethernet connection. The printer is attached to my Netgear Router, via this wired ethernet connection and my computer is also attached to the Netgear Router via a wired ethernet connection.
I know the printer is connected correctly because it shows the IP address of the router and the name of the router. I have been trying all day to get my computer to see the printer, to no avail.
Will I be able to use this printer to print even though it is not attached directly to my computer? Maybe I am crazy and this won't work.
Please let me know - I am sure this all sounds very confusing, but I need HELP!!
