my laptop uses a 3dongle,my printer is an hp deskjet 3000 with wifi capability. How do I get the two to connect wirelessly?
The printer's manual should have something to say about this. I've worked on a few HPs and I think the little onscreen menu allows you to enter the SSID and wireless security key - some more advanced models might be capable of searching. You could try XP's Control Panel>Printers and Faxes and Add a Printer>Add Network printer but I doubt it will see it until the printer has paired with your wireless network.
