Well lets see. I know a pretty good amount about computers for being only 16 :whistling: . I have a wireless HP 5850 printer. I want to hook my wireless printer wirelessly to my wireless router. Im not sure if I can make this any clearer. I like math so here we go.
X=Wireless printer
Y=Wireless Router
Z=My computer connected to the router through hardwire(ethernet)

XY--->yields Z
Something like that.
Please help soon. I moved into a new house and have tp print something for school soon.

Start>Printers and Faxes>right click the printer>sharing>click "share this printer." Then, when you go on the other computer that isn't connected through USB or whatever it is to it, find the printer on it. Open any folder in Explorer>click in the location bar and type "\\(put the computer's name that has the printer here.)">then you should see the printer. You can then right click>set as default printer.

Note-If you didn't get that this (>) means next step.

The wireless router has its own 802.11b or w/e it is. I had this working awhile back(1-2years). It is a wireless printer. And i have a wireless router. So what IM asking is how I get the wireless router to pick up on the signal of the printer and allow me to print from my desktop wich is plugged INTO the wireless router, wireless just for my moms laptop.
