We are a small company who is now struggling to set up 4 lap tops to wireless network + one wireless printer.

Internet is provided for whole building with dedicated internet line, we plug in wireless router to network and we get internet, problem is that we can’t set up password for wireless network for some reason + we can’t make printer to work on same one.

This may need reinstallation to printer software + configuration to wireless network etc, for 4 PC , which I just can’t do and as we need to do work I need to find someone who will be happy to come to our office in Lnd in sw11 for a day and sort this things, now we don’t have big budget so if anyone know someone who will be able to do this for us for reasonable price please come back to us.

Thanks!
Mario

Most wireless printers come with a small connection utility program on the driver CD/DVD or have a button on the printer, using one or other should initiate a wireless connection attempt to your router and prompt you to enter an encryption key

Thx - i tried all of this, problem is router and private network we use for internet, we do need a pro person to fix this...

I may have misunderstood something here, but if there is only one incoming phone line
dedicated for internet provision, then the whole building can only support one router. Each office would have its own connection to that central router.
The wireless router would not be plugged into the network cable.
When you say that you get internet, could you explain further, please.Does that involve using the router, or plugging the PC into the "network cable, mentioned?
If you connect one PC by ethernet cable to the router and the router to the "network cable" mentioned, what is at the other end of that "network cable"?
If cost is a factor, suggest persisting to DIY.
