Hmm....I saw one of those printers in Walmart the other day, I don't know anything about them so I really can't help you.

Well lets start from the beginning, have you installed everything correctly according to the instructions? Are all the settings correct as they need to be? What does the instructions say about how your router and pc has to be set up?

Have you got the computer setup as a workgroup? Have you got file and printer sharing enabled on the workgroup? Have you installed the printer drivers on the computer your trying to print from?
