I'm having a bit of a brainfade. If I have a router (sky) and wire connected PC to that router, should I be able to print to a wifi printer without a wifi card in the PC. ie can I print through the wifi facility built into the router as the PC is wired to the router. Thanks Al
thanks for this.. i'm afraid the pc in question is 150 miles (my brothers)away so I have to take control of it using team viewer.. I can only do this whilst he's there.. i'll check and come back to you..thanks again
Its a bit strange in that a laptop can use the printer with no issues.
If the printer is hard wired to the desktop PC then requests are queued but not printed, if the cable is removed any requests from the laptop are immediately printed but not the requests from the Desktop.
ahh, so are you saying that the desktop has to be connected first? prior to using the laptop... must admit that as the cable connection seemed to be messing things up its been left out whilst I tried to sort the wifi problem.. more food for thought thanks Al
