We are staying with family for the week. They have an HP 6500 wireless printer that they are able to print to. For some reason, I cannot seem to add it as a printer to my XP laptop.
I printed the network configuration page. In the General Information section, it says that the URL is http://10.9.9.11. In the 802.11 Wireless section, it says that the IP Address is 10.0.0.11. The subnet mask is 255.255.255.0. The default gateway is 10.0.0.1
So I start the Add Printer applet.
- I select "A network printer or a printer attached to another computer".
- I select "Connect to a printer on the Internet or on a home or office network.
- I fill in the URL (above).
- I get an error message saying "Windows cannot connect to the printer. Either the printer name was typed incorrectly or the specified printer has lost its connection to the server".
I tried it with and without the http://.
What am I doing wrong?
I wasn't sure whether to post this here or in the hardware section.
