Wireless Printing

  wrg 17:14 04 Apr 2008

Afternoon all.

I have Virgin Media broadband. My router is a Netgear that has only 4 ethernet ports one of which is plugged into the modem for VM. I want to be able to print wirelessly. Can anyone advise on how to do this.

Do you mean that you want the printer to be wireless or you want to be able to use a wireless PC to print or both?

Raven & Technotiger thanks for your response.
Technotiger tried that article last week and could not get it to work. Did not mention and maybe should have done but the 2 lappies are Vista and the wired PC is XP

How do the laptops connect to the internet?

Have a look at this. click here download the free version, 7.4 then if you like it upgrade later for just a few pounds, (about £15) well worth it. Its what I use and wouldn't be without it. I run 2 pc's and a laptop all wireless and is so easy to set up.

Thanks Ditch999 & iarno. Ditch999 they connect wirelessly. I have and DSL router that plugs into a modem (or vice versa). I then have the router wired into a PC in another room. The laptops just connect when they are booted up. The connection is password protected. iarno will try your suggestion later.

I recently bought a Canon Pixma MP600R which prints and scans wirelessly. It's not cheap, but the results are superb. click here

Is the printer connected to the wired PC? If so you can set up a small network and share the printer. Raven has a link which shows you how to do that.
