Printer won't Automatically Connect

Lexmark E260d monochrome laser printer
July 30, 2009 at 19:05:52
Specs: Windows Vista
I am using windows vista and I have a Lexmark E260d and HP Officejet 5610 added on it on my laptop here, but everytime I turn on my laptop I have to manually right click and press Connect on any of those printers for me to connect and print to them. How can I make that automatic connection when I turn on my laptop.

They are both wirelessly connected from the PC's they are connected to, frist I have to open in the Network one of the PC names and then find in it's printer folder the printer I want to connect to and then connect to it by right clicking.

If you go into the "How-to's" section of this site you'll see I've posted some instructions on connecting printers to the network. The same instructions apply for when it's a printer physically plugged into another computer on the network. The only difference being you would use the IP address of the PC the printer is connected to.
