  1. Connecting Two Machines Wirelessly for a Dummy Wannabe!


    flatbed scanner on my tablet. It does not have a DVD drive. A friend suggested connecting the desktop where I installed the Canon app to my tablet, then running it remotely or installing it.


    I have never done this before. I am not having much luck. I tried this:

    Desktop Side
    HP Pavilion Desktop PC 570-p0xx
    Start > Connect>
    This device does not support Mirrocast


    Tablet Side
    Start menu > Connect>
    desktop-UR80KTK is ready for you to connect wirelessly.


    So given this I wonder if this track just will not work? They will not “pair”?


    The other thought was copying the app off the desktop to a flash drive then installing it on the tablet.


    I stalled out on that idea too. I was not sure which files to copy, if they are keyed to the desktop, etc, so I stopped there to try the direct connect idea.


    What is driving this is that I have a lot delicate flatbed work. The desktop workstation is already overflowing. I want to put the scanner on a table I have on the opposite side of room. I could save the files to that HD and transfer them directly to the desktop if they will connect? Or alternately save them to a flash drive and sneaker-net them?


    BTW. I am not running a router, but have a couple from the Neolithic Age that I uses as closet-fill.


    Any direction will be greatly appreciated.


    Thanks for any thoughts.

    :)

    Cannot Connect Wirelessly to the Internet


    My E Machines E732 laptop which was recently upgraded to Windows 10 (from Windows 7) and has now had the Anniversary update applied. has suddenly ceased to be connectable wirelessly to the internet. I am using a BT Hub 5 and there is no fault with it as it connects wirelessly to several other computers in the house. I can connect the E Machines using an ethernet cable, and this works well, but any attempt to reconnect wirelessly fails. Could this be a result of the latest Windows update or is there some other fault such as a Registry flaw. I have tried renewing the network settings but no joy. Has anyone got any suggestions?*Sad

    Can't wirelessly connect to Samsung TV

    If that is the case, we need to clarify a few things first for us to better understand your concern about connecting your computer to your TV using wireless connection. Kindly answer the following:

    • Does your TV has a Miracast feature?
    • You mentioned that you're able to project your computer to your TV using wireless connection before. Can you please tell us the step-by-step process on how you connected your computer to your TV using wireless connection.

    While we wait for the answers to our questions, there may be a setting on your TV that needs to be activated so that you can connect your computer. We strongly recommend contacting Samsung so that you can verify how you can connect your computer to your
    TV wirelessly.

    We'll be waiting for your response.

    Can I connect 2 laptops wirelessly one running windows 7 and one is running windows 10, with no internet

    You have several options:

    • Connect the machines with a cross-over CAT5 cable
    • Use CAT5 cables to connect each machine to a switch or a router
    • Connect the machines wirelessly to an Access Point
    To access one machine from the other, use TightVNC. "Remote Desktop" (which is the name of the Microsoft tool) is available on Windows Professional only but not on the lower versions.
