    Yes, firewall can block - and often some years later for no apparent reason, if the subscription has run out it can cause issue.
    turn the firewall off, what is the firewall
    to check if the adapter is working OK

    If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to copy the program across to the faulty PC

I own a Dell V305w and have it wirelessly connected to my dell inspiron windows 7 pc. Prior to installing windows7 it worked beautifully right after I installed windows 7... NOTHING... I've updated...


If it is connected wirelessly, the computer needs to see it as a network printer. If it sees it as a local printer, it will not be able to print.

In addition to your print queue, make sure the Spooler service is running.
