  1. Printing: not a problem-just curious


    My hp 3050 j610 series printer is connected by wireless home network to 2 laptops. Although I can print from either laptop without any problem when I go into Settings>Printers both laptops show the printer as Default (correctly) but "not connected " which is obviously not true as I can print anything from either laptop without difficulty. As I said above, this is not a problem, but I can't help wondering what is causing laptops to give out wrong message. Anybody else come across this anomaly?

    :)

    Not a problem - Just curious

    Windows 10, Dell desktop PC. A couple years back we purchased a Lanier copier. The Gent brought it in, installed it, and configured each system in our network to access it. Every time we clicked 'Print' we would select 'Lanier' from the list. Sometime
    during this past December - January, after a W10 update, the Lanier disappeared from the list on each system in our network and a Ricoh was added. Now when we wish to print we have to select Ricoh from the list and the print comes out on our Lanier. Is that
    the way it's sposed to work? Just curious. - everything still works fine. Thanks, K.
