Customer Question
I have a Toshiba U405-S2820...
I have a Toshiba U405-S2820 with Integrated Wi-Fi® compliant wireless:10
o Intel® PRO/Wireless 3945ABG (802.11a/g).

I recently purchased a HP 4500 wireless printer but don't seem to be able to connect the 2 devices wireless.

Do I need a router - how does that work? Will my laptop communicate with this router and will it be transfered to the printer? Is there any way I can make the laptop communicate directly to the printer and vica verca? None of the 2 devices have bluetooth.

Thank you for asking your question on JustAnswer My name is XXXXX XXXXX other Experts and I are working on your answer.
To make the two talk to each other you need to give each one an IP address.
Such as the laptop wireless connection 192.168.0.1 and a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0 Default Gateway 192.168.0.1
and the Printer with an address of 192.168.0.2 subnet mask 255.255.255.0 Default gateway 192.168.0.1.
Now going back to your laptop go to add a printer and allow the laptop to search for it.
It should find the printer and then either install it using the Microsoft printer drivers or ask you for the disk. once you have done that you should be able to print a test page

will I need a wireless router like a linksys?
Tech Support Specialist: Nick, Consultant replied 8 years ago
nope you should be able to get them to talk with each other using ( ad hoc wireless ) communication and it will be secure as you are usinf what is called a "static ip address"

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
