Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad T61 Notebook ?

Remote printing was working and then it stopped.

\015 I have a router and used remote printing from my laptop. It was working and then it stopped - when no other change happened. Same router, same laptop. . How do I reinstate remote printing with my home network?\015

Answers :

If this is a network printer. You can reinstall the drivers that came with the printer as a local printer, then go into control panel open the 'printers and faxes' right click on the printer that you reinstalled, 'properties' go to ports tab, select add port, -> 'standard tcp/ip port' -> 'new port' -> next -> put in the ip address for the printer, it will be the scheme of you subnet for example if your ip address for your computer is set to you would use the ip address for the printer port of after that is done press next-> after that you will be set as a network printer. Try to print a test page.

If this does not work, you can install the printer locally on a separte computer, such as your home pc, and make the printer a share. Then simply add the share printer on your laptop. for example; after you install the printer on your home pc, go under control panel, -> right click the printer -> sharing-> enable printer sharing... -> Next -> You will be prompted on the sharing tab-> select 'share this printer' -> type a share name, such as 'Lexmark2' -> click ok. at this point you will see a hand under the printer, showing it is shared.

Note: you will need to get the computer name of the pc that the printer is locally installed, your home pc. for this example lets name the pc 'home' you can find the name of your pc by right clicking on my computer and select properties. go to the computer name tab.
also remember we named the printer share 'lexmark2'

now go to your labtop, go to the control panel and select 'printers and faxes' select add a printer on the right column. a windows will pop up, click next -> select 'A network printer, or printer.....' click on the radio buttion that reads 'Connect to this printer (or to browse.....' should be the 2nd option. this is where you are going to use the computer name and printer name.

put in


click next -> then finish

print a test page, from your labtop.

I have an issue with a network printer. I have a Brother MFC 8440 connected to a HP laptop with Vista 64 via a US Robotics 9108 wireless router with a USB/printer port. The printer works connected directly to the laptop and previously worked via the wireless router. However, it has now stopped working. I get a ?printing? status in the printer window which eventually becomes ?Error ? Printing?. This began happening sometime after my attempt to tweak my system, so obviously I did something stupid.
