You in a way can but u need to buy a adapter that goes into your modem. apart from that it is possible to sign it into one computer and have it on "share" so that other computers on the same network can still print but for this you need to keep that computer it's connected to on for long periods of time or when you need to use the printer

Is this dymo twin turbo labelwriter enabled to connect wirelessly


You can network the labelwriter using the Dymo Network Print Server device, but this is not wireless.

It is possible to connect using 3rd party print servers, but this can be pretty hit and miss. It's possible you would find a 3rd party wireless print server that would work with a labelwriter, but you may have a problem with the twin model - the dymo print server recognises that there are (effetively) 2 printers in one machine, where-as a many 3rd party servers do not.

So it's possible you could find a wireless server for it but it may not allow you to use both rolls...

How do I print wirelessly on this printer?


While this printer has a lot of features, built-in wireless connectivity isn't one of them. To use this printer on a wireless network you'll need a print server. If you already have a wired/wireless router on your network, you can use a wired print server like this one. Connected to one of the router's wired ports, any computer on the network could share the printer. If you don't have a network already or just want to connect wirelessly to the printer, you can use a wireless server like this one. Then the printer becomes a stand-alone wireless device. (I only picked the servers used as samples because I get a lot of parts from Tiger Direct and they are typical devices. There are many other sources and models, obviously. But you'll know what you're looking for.)

Wondering what I need to print wirelessly from laptop with this printer


If you printer hasn't a built-in wireless connection and if you haven't a wireless router then -
You need a wireless router plus print server. Connect this print server to the wireless router with a LAN cable. Then the printer is then connected to the print server's printer port.
The laptop's wireless card is then configured with the router's wireless settings.
The laptop is then installed with the printer driver and the printer port needs to be changed/configured with the print server's IP address.
ALTERNATELY
If the printer is connected to a desktop computer on your home LAN and it is also connected to your wireless router. Then you can set this printer as A Shared Printer on your desktop computer, but this desktop computer and the printer has to be powered up for the laptop to print to the printer.

Trying to install HP 2101nw wirelss print server but get message can't find the print server on the wirless network form this machine. I am trying to set this up stand alone , not via a router


The server maybe enabled but you need to navigate on the printer and select a wireless network you want to connect to (just like you would when you connect a computer to a wireless netowrk). Once the printer is connected to the wireless network. try it again

How do i set up my wireless canon printer to my laptop? I keep getting messages saying can't find the printer.


Difficulty: Moderately Easy
Instructions
Things You'll Need: · Wireless print server
· USB printer
· Ethernet cable
· Computer
1. Step 1
Obtain a wireless print server that is compatible with both your wireless network and your printer. While the printer’s documentation may not explicitly say that it is compatible with a print sever, many are compatible, and this can be verified by checking the website of the print server’s manufacturer. If you have a multifunction printer, only the print function will work with most wireless print servers, though a few have recently added support for scanning and the printer’s other functions.
Step 2 Read all of the documentation that came with the wireless print server. The manual will detail the specifics of the installation routine.
Step 3 Connect the printer to the wireless print server via the USB cable. Connect the print server’s Ac adapter and turn the unit on.
Step 4 Connect an Ethernet cable between the wireless print server and your computer. This will be used for the initial setup only.
Step 5 Insert the CD supplied with the print server into your CD-Rom drive. Start the software if it does not start automatically. The application will walk you through the installation process, which includes setting the unit’s IP address, setting an access password, configuring it to connect to the wireless network, installing the drivers that allow the print server to use the printer and installing the print drivers on your computers.
Step 6 Choose how your print server will be addressed. Most units are set up to use dynamic addressing by default, which means that your wireless router will assign an IP address to it. This allows the server to be easily installed on the network, but it also means that the IP address of the printer may change over time. The other option is to assign a static IP address to your print server. This option is more reliable, because the print server will always use the same IP address, making it easier for the computers to find the printer and easier to access the print server’s online configuration application. If your router has the IP address of 192.168.0.1, for instance, set the print server to something like 192.168.0.2 or 192.168.0.3, as long as another device does not use that address.
Step 7
Set a password to be used to access the unit’s online configuration application.
Step 8 Configure the print server to access your wireless network. Give it the same SSID network name as your router and set it to use the same wireless channel. If encryption is used on the router, enable encryption on the print server, and enter the encryption key or password.
Step 9 Follow the instructions given by the print server’s software for installing printer drivers on the unit.
Step 10
Disconnect the Ethernet cable and allow the unit to connect via the wireless network.
Step 11 Install the printing drivers on each computer that will use the printer.
Step 12 Access the print server’s online configuration application to verify all settings by entering the IP address of the unit into a web browser, using the “http://192.168.0.2” format. Enter the administrator name and password.
Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

My wGPS606 wont print on my Windows Vista laptop!


I just found a way to enable the HP P1006 with a different print server (Liveprint on Orange Livebox router). Perhaps this might work with the WGPS606 wireless print server?

I set up the P1006 via the print server as instructed (I'm using Vista 32 Home Premium) but no test page would print.

BUT!! (with thanks to another another forum):

I selected printers, then right-clicked on the wireless printer I'd just installed and selected 'properties'.

Under the 'Ports' tab I deselected 'Enable bidirectional support'.

Problem solved.

Hope this helps.

let me inform you that this printer is not compatible with any wireless print server. The drawback is that it is not possible to network such printers. A printer needs a steady flow of data, which is easily accomplished when it is connected directly to a PC, but cannot be guaranteed when the printer is connected via a LAN. Also, these technologies require intensive handshaking between the driver and the printer.
The host-based software uses the computer's resources to process print commands and rasterizing data, taking advantage of the computer's memory and processing power."

Sorry I can't be more upbeat - but its probably useful to know that someone at HP thinks the job's imposible - unless someone out there has a fix?

Wireless


Printing you could do through a wireless print server. The other day I hooked a copier up into customers office using this device Netgear device:

http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?skuId=7250707&st=wireless+print+server&lp=2&type=product&cp=1&id=1115366648118

By plugging the ethernet connection from the copier into the ethernet port of the wireless adaptor. I was able to use it as a scanner. Now the wireless print server was converted into a wireless access point. It's works quite well.

Installation assistant cannot detect print server


Results of attempting to connect the Netgear Wireless Print Server WGPS606 and the Canon MF6550 multifunction laser printer. I was on the phone for several hours last evening (March 9, until about midnight EDT) with a very competent support agent from Netgear (actually in the Philippines). The Netgear setup Wizard software would not connect the Print Server to my Verizon FiOS wireless G router automatically, so the Netgear support agent walked me through it manually. The Print Server connected that way, for sure. Then we manually attempted to connect the Print Server to my Canon MF6550 and subsequently, my HP 932C Deskjet. Neither printer is on the WGPS606 compatible list, nor is either on the known incompatible list. Now we know - both printers are INCOMPATIBLE with the Netgear WGPS606. I bought both the Netgear Print Server and the Canon MF6550 at Staples on Sat., March 8, 2008, based upon the assurance from Staples staff that it would all work. The question now is whether ANY brand of wireless Print Server will work with the Canon MF6550, or do I have to return this printer and get either a Canon with built in networking (ethernet or wireless) or switch to the Brother equivalent (MFC 8870DW). If I get a (multi-function) printer with built-in Ethernet networking, does the Ethernet capability bypass the USB incompatibility problem, or will the problem remain?
