This printer has a 10/100 Base-T wired Internal Ethernet Print Server .
To make it wireless ,you would have to purchase a wireless print server, which will connect through the USB port.

To save the expense of purchasing a wireless print server,I would run a cable from the router to the printer and set an IP address, the you can set the printer up on as many computers as you would need.

Good luck,
Joe

Dell 2155cn


You can make your printer WiFi compatible by connecting it to your wireless modem/router using the Ethernet port on the back of the printer, if the printer is located within a reasonable distance from the modem/router. The cost of an Ethernet cable (even a longer one) is probably less than the cost of the wireless adapter (I assume you have not bought the adapter yet).
To find out if the wireless adapter is compatible with your printer, you can call Dell technical support (for the printer or the adapter).

Hope this helps.

Epson stylus sx215 wirless or not


The Epson Stylus SX215 is not a wireless printer so you will need a USB cable to connect to your printer and print.
If you want to be able to use the printer wirelessly you have a few options:
  1. Check your internet router (assuming it is wireless) to see if it will support and share your printer (Check for compatibility with your printer).
  2. Look for a replacement router that will share and support your printer (Again, do your research before you buy!)
  3. Consider replacing your printer. Most new models are wireless and very similar to the SX215. The down side is that cartridge volume is much smaller on many of the budget models like the XP205 or SX235W.
Hope that helps.

How to make a printer wireless


Plug into a wireless print server.If your printer has a USB port, you can plug in a wireless print server, a small box into which you can connect your printer. The advantage of investing in a print server is that you don't have to connect the printer to a PC, which means you can use your laptop and print anywhere in your home.
.tmnAdsenseContainer{margin-bottom:10px;} We found plenty of print servers in the $50 range on Newegg.com, although many of the models cost closer to $75 or $100). Before you buy, make sure the print server is compatible with your printer (the printer's written materials are less likely to specify compatibility with print servers).
During the setup, you will have to plug the printer into the printer server, and connect that to the router using an Ethernet cable. Meanwhile, you'll have to install software on your computer and configure the connection, as you would when setting up a router.

Wireless printer compatability


Any printer can essentially be made into a "Networked" printer that function is all a function of software. You can usually, use any WiFi printer, as long as you know it's address, and can connect to it. Install the drivers and connect to the, WiFi, Networked Printer. A WiFi networked printer, is essentially seen as a "PC". It simply has an Address, and you just "Connect to" that address...

It is true the wireless upgrade printing kit will not be compatible with C1315 All-In-One Printer.
And also instead of going for a wireless upgrade printing kit you can buy a Wireless All-In-One printer for the same price and a new printer with a Year warranty as well, Check this link Bellow:

Printing through wireless


hi,

if you had the printer before using the USB cable. then you changed it to wireless, try the ff:

1. re-insert the CD the came with the box, the cd that you used to install the printer Software to your computer.
2. after inserting the cd, it will give you option "add a device".
3. click on that to install the printer driver for WIRELESS.

note: the reason why you cant print, is mainly because the printer driver you have is still for USB connection. so inorder for you to be able to print, you need to install a printer DRIVER for wireless... That should WORK..
