Question about Canon Office Equipment & Supplies
I have a canon mp460 printer connected to my home pc. It works fine, but I have heard that I should be able to print wirelessly from my laptop. The printer doesn't have an ethernet receptical to hook to router. Is this possible to do, or do I need a different printer? Thanks for your help.
If you have your laptop and pc networked you can simply "share the printer....If not, you have to do that first......then "Right click" on your canon printer icon in "Printers and Faxes", left click "sharing", select "share this printer and name it whatever you want.
Then go to "add printers" (on your Laptop), "add printer" (the add printer wizard comes up), click "next", slect "a network printer..", select "browse for Printer". In the next box you should see your home network, you may have to click on this to search for available resources, then you should see your printer, double click on it to transfer the files to your laptop. You can use this process for any and all printers you may have conected.
You are now sharing the printer from your PC, so keep in mind that it has to be "ON" in order to print from your laptop.
