Answers :

1, You need know the TCP/IP address range that your router is allocating to your network. You can check this by typing ipconfig in the DOS window (click Start - Run - then type cmd to get a DOS window)
\015\012
\015\0122. Take a note of the TCP/IP address and sub net mask etc.
\015\012Most likely IP address is 192.168.0.xxx (xxx might be 2 or 3 etc.)
\015\012Then go to the HP printer and to the configuration menu and scroll through to the Network configuration and setup the IP address and sub net mask. Set an IP address nearly the same as on your laptop but the last group of digits to be greater than the laptop (eg 10 or 15).
\015\012
\015\0123. If you have installed the printer driver then click on Printers and Faxes then right click on the printer then Properties.
\015\012
\015\012If not install the printer driver and install it on thr LPT1 printer port. Then click on Printers and Faxes then right click on the printer then Properties.
\015\012
\015\012Then click on Ports tab - then click on Add Port - then select Standard TCP/IP Port - and configure this port with the IP address you assigned for the printer. Make sure you tick this Port box and tick Enable bidirectional printing - click Apply and then Close.
\015\012Then click General tab and Print Test Page.
\015\012If you get a test page then its OK, if not then go through the steps again - most likely the IP address is wrong.
