I have a HP deskjet 6840 printer that I would like to connect to my network so that I do not need to have a computer connected to the printer to print from another computer on the network. We have a netgear wired/wireless router which is the centre of the network to which the printer is connected by ethernet cable. Can this pinter be a device on the network that any computer can pick up so long as the printer is on, without another computer connected to it?
I do have the printer connected to the network via an ethernet cable but at the moment I cannot see it in the network devices although it will print from one of the computers that it was originally set up from. is there something else I need to do or am I missing something?
