How to Set-up Printer on Windows® XP® system
You can easily setup a printer on a machine using XP Operating System. The connection procedures are simple. Switch off your system. Then connect the parallel cable of printer to the computer. After doing this, connect the power cord of the printer to power outlet. Then switch on your system. Your computer will then know that an additional hardware component is installed on it. You can also connect the network printer. For this you require a Network card and router. The Network card and router should be compatible with your Windows XP Operating System. Another compatibility check is needed and it is in the adapter. You should check the compatibility of these components with Wi-Fi Network engineering standards (802.11b/g). After checking these things, get the Printer wizard option from control panel and install according to the instructions.

Many problems can arise in the printing function. Sometimes your printer will not print. If you find this problem, first check whether the printer driver is installed correctly. If any of the files get missed during installation, you cannot get the print function. Another thing you should keep in mind is the Network overload. If your Network is busy or overloaded, you cannot share files and do not get print. Sometimes you find your printer prints with much delay. This may be due to the use of delayed acknowledgements by the system. If the printer cord is not plugged in properly or the router cable is not properly connected, you will be facing the same problem.
