Using printer's IP address for Samsung tablet usage
by kleinburg - 4/9/13 1:54 AM
I have a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 (GT-P51000) tablet.
I want to be able to print from the tablet to a HP Laserjet 5000 printer connected to a desktop computer. The printer does not have wireless feature, however I can wireless connect a laptop computer through the printers IP address.
To do this I make the printer shareable, switch on the dektop computer and printer;and then enter the IP address in the Run section of the laptop computer and I can print wirelessly.
HOWEVER, my Samsung tablet does not 'see' the printer. I tried using HP's ePrint app, but this requries a printer's email address (not the IP address)!!
Any help and advise welcome
