Network Printer Problems in Windows® 7
The most common way to install a printer on a home network is to install it as a standalone device in the network and then you can add a connection to the printer on each computer that is on the network. Three types of connections are there. You can use a wireless printer, you can connect directly to the network and you can connect more than one printer directly to the network. For connecting a printer, first you have to click the 'Start' button and then click the 'Control Panel'. Then, click 'Hardware and Sound' and then click the 'Printer'. On the toolbar, just click 'Add a Printer' and click 'Add Printer Wizard' and select 'Add a network, wireless or Bluetooth printer' and then go through the steps in wizard.
