    I have an MN wireless router which I originally set up with an ethernet
    connection to my XP computer (XP 2002 SP3). Since then, I added a wireless
    card to the XP computer and put it on the network, added an iMAC (OS v
    10.6.2) to the wireless network and purchased an HP photosmart C4780 wireless
    printer.

    So my network has my cable modem, connected to the MN-700 Router and then
    both the XP and iMAC computers are wirelessly connecting to the wireless
    router.

    The issue I am having is adding the wireless printer. I have tried to do
    that through the iMAC and while this computer sees my network, connects to my
    network, the printer set-up process it does not "see" my home network to
    configure and connect the wireless printer.

    I have tried to do the same from my XP computer which again is connected
    wirelessly to my network (via an non-MS wireless card) which successfully
    wirelessly connects to the network, has my Broadband Network Utility software
    but again, is not able to "see" my wireless network through the printer
    configuration set up to confirgure my printer and add to the network.

    Can you please help as I am at a loss, outside of agreeing that I need to
    buy a new router.

    Thanks - Steve

    Please describe step by step what you tried and what happened when you
    attempted to install the printer using the XP box. Please report all
    error messages in full.

    Try temporarily disabling encryption on your router before attempting
    the printer install. Does this help?
