Help. I'm installing a wi-fi printer but I get to a point when my options are 1.Connect to network...I'm a standalone computer

or 2. connect via usb port which defeats the purpose of wi-fi.

When I try to connect to network the error message is "can't connect under current network environment"

My operating system is windows xp pro.

Could you please give me an idiots guide as to how I alter my network thing to accept the printer

I don't do wifi...but my guess is that the "network" referred to...would be your existing Internet connection.


Have you read through the complete instlation instructions?  Does your system support wireless connectivity?  If so...is the driver for the system wifi connection properly installed?  You can verify this by going to Device Manager and see if a wireless connection is reflected under Network Adapters.


Start/Run...type devmgmt.msc and hit Enter...to get into Device Manager.


If no wireless adapter is listed as installed/working properly...and the system supports wireless...you should install the wireless driver from your Drivers CD.
