Wireless networking

  Cuzza 16:39 14 Sep 2003

I am moving to a new house soon and it is too small for an office space so I want to have wireless access to broadband. So I have ordered a laptop and am thinking of buying a 54g wirelesscable/dsl router and a card for the laptop. My question is where does my printer fit in? I would ideally have the router in the hall but I want my printer in the lounge or dining room how can I print wirelessly? I have a Lexmark 5150 all in one. I though about bluetooth (another £150) but is there any way I can use the wireless router?

You could use a wireless print server:-

Plug this into the mains, plug the printer into the back of it and it will show up on your wireless network.

Install the wireless printer port on your laptop and you should be able to print with ease.

If you did go for that piece of kit, you would need to buy the wireless PC card to slot into it.
