I'm losing my mind! I'm trying to get my supposedly 'wireless' printer to send out a wireless signal. I've been at this for DAYS!!! I've tried every fix I can find online....to no avail!
I'm using an HP Deskjet 3050a Wireless Printer
A Cisco Linksys e2000 Router
Have an HP laptop running Windows 7 and a newer desktop running Windows 8.
Anyone have any non-typical or little-known fixes for this? I've tried resetting WPS, uninstalling/Reinstalling the printer driver, resetting my router, completely dismantled my wireless network and restarted it.
NOTE: I have 2 of these printers, NEITHER WORK WIRELESSLY! One has been plugged into a fairly new desktop (Windows 8) the other an older laptop (Running either 7 or Vista). Both work fine when hard-lined into the computer. I've tried using a different wireless modem to no avail.
FYI: I have 1 computer hard-lined into a room that is connected to a router (not wireless) and the cable modem. That modem is connected to a wireless router in another room across the house (25-30ft away+). Second computer, iPad 2 and 2 smartphones run wirelessly from the second router with no issues. I am by no means an expert, am starting to wonder if my issues stem from how I've got things set up? Using high-speed cable internet.
