wireless connections

I am about to purchase a new wireless enabled laptop and already have fairly new, very costly top flight separate printer and scanner. Is there anyway of making a wireless connection or must I buy new?

Making a wireless connection to what? The Printer? The Scanner? Only if they have an integrated wireless card or you buy a print server.

Blimey! That was quick!
What's a print server. Cos I don't have one. The Printer & scanner are not enabled

This is a print server click here it will allow you to connect your printer to your wireless network.

Don't worry MAJ, I forgive you. Thanks - the link from the site explains it all. It means that for an investment of £40 I won't have to throw away a £400 printer and it won't be beyond me to carry the laptop to the scanner for the few occasions that I need to scan. Thankyou once again for your rapid and helpful 'gen'

Which printer model is it, BELSOX?

Scanner will only work through the USB
