Guest johno

I have a printer I setup with my old computer and I just bought a new windows 7 pc. The printer is wireless and my pc is plugged into my cable modem.


Everything I try I cant print. Help please?

What I would do first is make sure the Printer is still talking to your wireless network.


Goto the printer and try to print a test page that displays the IP address. Once you have that you can PING the IP from your windows 7 box to see if there's network connectivity.


If you can ping the box then it's not a network or a wireless issues but a software issue.



Let me know if you need more help.

Make sure the computer drivers are compatible with Windows 7. I had a lot of issues getting my HP all in one to work with my HP Printer (even though I attached it with a USB cable).


HP never did release a new driver and it still doesn't work.....


like Vadim said, the drivers are really important.

Google the model # of your printer and then see if there are windows 7 drivers available. Make sure you are getting the right kind too, 32 bit or 64 bit.
