Problems with printers on a home network

Hi everyone,

I would like to know if it is possible to add a printer connected to a computer wired to a wireless router to a wifi laptop. I am using Windows 7 Home Basic

I don't see why not. Have you tried the Add a printer dialogue in Devices and printers? Of course your laptop must be running.

Hi ROban,

Thanks for your reply. Yes, I already tried what you said. My laptop could "see" the printer but when I press the next button, and my computer attempts to connect with the printer, I get an error message "Windows cannot connect to the printer".
