    Can't Find A Printer


    I have a two printers installed on my home WiFi, yet when I 'search' for them neither show up, what am I doing wrong. I have a new laptop which doesn't have a DVD/CD Drive to use the printer install disc so I need to figure this out.

    I believe you meant my post which I had mistakenly posted to your thread.
    It was a careless mistake on my part.
    My reply was not meant for your. It was meant for this thread ............

    If you don't mind investing a very small sum for an external DVD drive.
    It is relatively inexpensive.

    I bought one last year for an Iconia tablet. It was less than $40 Canadian.
