Wireless printing

  SuzeWitho 18:58 21 Feb 2009

Hi everyone - I'm a newbie

I have a laptop (running Windows XP), a wireless router (Netgear, supplied by Sky Broadband) and a laser printer (Brother HL-5050).

At the moment, if I want to print, I have to take my laptop into the study, connect the USB cable to the laptop and print.

I'm not sure what equipment I need and what configuration is required to be able to print wirelessly from the laptop.

The printer has a USB or parallel connection.

Please note - I do not have a desktop computer attached to the printer, the only computer I have is the laptop.

If anyone can advise, I would be very grateful. No jargon, please, I am a simpleton!

Thanks in advance

You want a "Network Print Server" such as click here to which you connect your printer by USB. You can then print "wirelessly" to it via the Print Server.
