Wireless printing from laptop

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.

Hi, There are quite a few wireless printer servers which would do what you want - but surely you can just unplug from your old system and plug it into the laptop. If you want to be able to print from both then a wireless print server is the way to go.

Install the drivers/software onto PC that you want to print from.go to Start Printers and Faxes look for the printer either set as default or if not when you want to print to this printer you will have to choose it from drop down menu on print.If you plan to only use this printer choose Default if you plan to print by PC to Printer by direct usb you can choose default for PC and Default for Laptop wireless.
Depending on your Home Network you may be prompted for your network code.Note Without PC having wireless you wont be able to print to wirless printer,wireless,wired (usb will be fine).Good Luck.

Wireless printing does not work


For an effective wireless connection, the printer should be connected to one of the LAN ports of a configured wireless router. This way, every pc(mostly laptops with wireless capability) can print to the printer. You will need a wireless adapter for desktop pcs to access any resource made available wirelessly ok. Good luck
