Canon Pixma MP150 connect to Router

  Diala 11:53 08 Feb 2006

Hi all...

My employer has recentlt given me a Cannon Pixma MP150.

However, it only has one USB connector to connect it to a PC. I would like to Connect it to my Belkin ADSL Wireless Router which has Ethernet ports for connectivity.

Therefore, it is possible to connect this Printer to the Router so that every one can share the printer and benefit from wireless printing.

Any help or advice would be much appreciated.

You'll need a separate print server - I've got a Belkin one that works fine with my network. Plug the printer's USB cable into the print server and run the set-up. Then run the set-up on all the PCs you want to be able to access it - it's pretty easy. I even got my Mac iBook working with it despite the lack of support.

Hi Kate B...

Thanks for your advice, you have saved me a bob or two, as I was going to buy all sorts of wierd USB adapters and USB to Ethernet converter.

The Belkin Print Server looks good, so think I will get one of those.

Many Thanks.
