Set-up Wireless Printer in Windows® 7
Most of the printers currently available in the market are compatible with Windows 7 with a download of driver from the manufacturer’s website. We have come across a few printing machines that are not compatible with Windows 7, particularly in the 64-bit version. The development of wireless network helps the user to connect more devices with the computers to get the maximum output. The wireless printers thus help the users to connect it with the computer without any wires. Wireless Printers permits the user to print superior quality documents in color, black and white. Designed with extensive variety of features, the All-In-One Wireless Printer allows the user to print lively, bright and exciting print outs with significant efficiency. The printer machine supports the user to print straight from the digital cameras and memory cards. Due to simple design, the user can easily place the system anywhere in his home and office. In Windows 7, the user can rapidly install a printer using Plug and Play technology.
Following are the important points related to setting up of wireless printer in Windows 7:
Windows 7 machines automatically detect the printer device, but sometimes the computer fails to detect the printer automatically. If an automatic installation fails, the users are recommended to go for a manual installation. For manual installation, go to start menu, open 'control panel' and choose 'device and printer options'. From the Devices and printer options menu, click on 'Add a printer' option. From Add printer wizard which appears on the screen, choose local printer option. Under 'Choose a printer port page', ensure that 'Use an existing port' is selected, and then click 'Next'. This allows Windows 7 to assign a driver to the device.
The various issues which are associated with wireless printer set-up are router issues, wireless printer set-up, and wireless connection issues. Some of the wireless printers may not be compatible with Windows 7 and this creates issues while installing. Sometimes the system shows error message: 'offline mode', even if the system is connected to the network and is ON. To set-up wireless printers first, make sure that you have a wireless network otherwise the user cannot be able to locate the printer on the computing device. Windows 7 automatically detect the printer device, but the Driver Software Installation component may run into problems while installing the device.
Most of the wireless printers are not compatible to work with Windows 7 64-bit Operating System. So check the compatibility before installing the printer. If the status of your printer is offline, then you have to reinstall the drivers for printer on Windows 7 based system. Make sure that you have downloaded the printer software from authorized websites. Wireless networks are always prone to errors. Therefore, it is important to monitor the wireless network at home or at the office to keep the links to the wireless printer active.
