How to Add a Network Printer in Windows XP

Steps

Adding the Printer

  1. Open printers and faxes.Choose “start,” and click on “control panel” and then click on “printers and other hardware.” Now, choose “printers and faxes.”
    • You can also drag the printer from the printers folder on the print server. Now, drop it into your printers folder or right click on it, and click “connect.”
    • If the control panel window is in classic view, you could also click on “printers and faxes” icon instead.
  2. Open the printer wizard.Find “printer tasks,” and click on “add a printer.” This will open the “add printer wizard.” Click next.
    • If your computer uses wireless connection, make sure that you opened a web browser and logged onto the wireless network first.
    • Choose the local printer option. With this option, once you get to the “welcome to the add printer wizard” screen, select local printer. Uncheck “automatically detect.” Click next.
  3. Choose a new port.Where it says “create a new port,” you should choose “standard TCP/IP Port.” Click next.
    • At the next page, which says “welcome to the add standard TCP/IP printer port wizard” click next again. Make sure that you don’t check “automatically detect and install my plug and play printer."
    • Enter the host name or IP address of your printer server. Click next. Select “custom” and click “settings.” You will see the network printer settings. Click “finish.” The IP address should be on the printer itself and is a set of numbers separated by periods.
    • You could also call the manufacturer if you can’t locate the IP address, but it’s usually on the printer itself.

Completing the Process

  1. Select your printer make and model from the list offered.Click next.
    • If you don’t see your printer on the list click “have disk” and insert the printer software disk that came with your purchase.
    • You could also download the software from the manufacturer website if the manufacturer offers that option.
  2. Enter a name for the printer.You will want to put in a name so you can find the printer again, and you should decide whether to make this printer the default printer.

Connecting to the Desired Printer

  1. Use the method for those logged onto a Windows domain running Active Directory.This is one of three methods available to connect the printer.
    • Click on “find a printer in the directory.” Click next.
    • Click the “browse” button. You will find it at the right of “location.” Click the printer location. Click “OK.”
    • Click “find now.”
    • Choose the printer you want to use, and click “OK.”
  2. Connect to an Internet or intranet printer.If you use a printer’s URL, you will be able to connect to a printer via the Internet. You will need to have permission to use the printer, though.

    I have my Canon wireless printer set up on my computer that is online. Can I also set it to print on my computer that is in another room and not online?

    No! Unless you can get that computer to link with the wireless printer via the Internet, you will have to use a USB-USB cord. From there it will pop up in your available printers when you go to print.
    Thanks!
