2 laptops on a wireless network (adding a printer)

  RobMcConnell 21:44 12 May 2008


I have a wireless network using a Zxtel modem router.

I have two laptops that connect wirelessly to the network.

Can I add a printer to the wireless modem router and print from the laptops over the network to the printer. What type of printer do I need to buy, does it need to an ethernet connection as the moden router has four ethernet connection ports on the back.

Thanks in advance

Either get a wireless printer , I believe there are a few about ( Lexmark , HP etc. ) or get a print server that connects to your wireless router click here for an example .

You will need a printer with either a wireless or ethernet connection such as this one click here
