I have 2 laptops, one work-provided, the other personal. With my own laptop, which is WiFi, I have a wireless network using a Netgear ADSL router and wireless printer which work perfectly.
However, my work printer is not WiFi enabled and I would like to print to the wireless printer via a CAT 5E cable plugged into the back of the router. I am able to access my work's server when hard-wired to the router but unable to print.
What do I need to do to be able to print from my work printer without physically taking the laptop to the printer and using USB?
I think there is a difference between installing the printer on a USB port and installing it on a network port. If nothing else, you have to go into the printer driver and tell it which port it is printing from.
You should probably have 2 printers shown - one on the USB port and one on the network port, with different names E.g. "Printer USB" and "Printer Net" so that you know which to use from Word, or whatever.
