Michael :

Hello, my name is XXXXX XXXXX X will try and assist you with this question.

Michael :

Generally, you would hook this up same as any other printer, via usb ports.

Michael :

If its an aspire one netbook, you would first download the driver for it, or install using a portable optical drive (that once again plugs into usb port ).

Michael :

If you have anything further to ask, by all means feel free.

Michael :

Good afternoon.

Michael :

You will just need to pick what OS from teh drop down menu.

Customer:

You don't understand. I live in a moterhome & I want the printer at one end & the Lapetop at the other. I have a ACER ,Aspire # XXXXX & a HP photosmart D 110 printer. I have no router.

Michael :

And thats a wireless printer?

Customer:

YES

Michael :

Without the router, you could buy a long usb cable, no way to do that without the router.

Customer:

& NO phone line.

Michael :

phone line would play no part in this anyhow.

Michael :

With that printer you have 2 options only.

Michael :

direct connect, or over a network

Customer:

Well where do you hook the router?

Michael :

What do you use for internet atm? some signal being broadcasted at teh park where your motorhome is?

Customer:

NO I use a Verizon conection.

Michael :

Oh.

Michael :

I feel for you, pricey

Customer:

Well $60 amonth.

Michael :

Yeah, I have some customers that use it, just I feel its a bit pricey for only 5gig a mnth

Michael :

Ok, anyways..

Michael :

Your in a situation that is obviously not normal.

Michael :

Your internet streams through your card, so cannot be set up with router either.

Michael :

Objectively.. is this were me, I woudl go with a long usb cord, theres no way it can worjk wireless in your situation.

Michael :

I hate to say it cannot be done, but it can't.

Michael :

You cannot be connected to verizon and then be connect to router at same time to even print.

Michael :

You could buy a router, hardwire it and set it up and it will broadcast and you can use it it a print server to some extent, but to do it, you would have to discconet from verizen, and then connet to router , knocing you offline, to be able to print anything.

Customer:

Soooo I guess my choices are to eather move the laptop & printer closer together. & the wierless printer is ussless.

Michael :

Correct.

Michael :

Just no way it woudl work, liek its supposed to in your situation.

Michael :

They do sell LONG usb cables.

Michael :

but then you get to figure out how to run/hide that.

Michael :

65 ft I have found

Michael :

About a buch a ft.

Michael :

buck*

Customer:

O K I'll move them closer & buy a long cable. Well thanks for your help!!!

Michael :

Your very welcome. I hate to say when somthing isnt possible, b
