Similar to other questions but different enough:
1st installed the printer to the desktop that does not have wireless using USB port. Prints.
2nd installed software to my wireless laptop. I can see the printer in the printers folder, it says ready, but won't print. Printer has been set up with SSID, etc, and even has an indicator that it is getting wireless signal. I know the laptop is wireless or I would not be writing this from it right now.
How to I get my laptop and printer to really talk to each other???? BTW, my wireless router is working fine since my Android phone works on it. Power does not need to be on the desktop for this.
I don't really want to network the computers since I will be decommissioning the desktop, but so far the system has made me do that in my attempts to get the printer to wirelessly print.
