    Great thanks a lot I shall try doing that when I get back home this evening. Was it really that simple?

    Thanks again, I will let you know the outcome but sounds as though it should work if you are runnung same. So this means my ink consumption is going to go up. With a digital grahics mad 18 year old son its already high.

    Hi John,

    Bryan back here. Finally managed to get a minute to try the setup and have succeeded in getting one laptop to print through the network printer, but not the other. I can see and select the printer from the laptop, even send the print-job so that on the printer properties box it indicates that it is printing, but then it gets an error!! Any ideas?

You have to make sure you go to Control Panel/Printers, right click on the printer in the list and click 'Properties' - go to the sharing tab, select 'Share this printer', give it a name, and click OK. Then go to Printers on each of the laptops, select 'Add a printer', then 'Network printer', then 'Browse for printers'. You should be able to see the printer. If all the computers use the same operating system, you're good, otherwise, when you first share the printer, you may want to install additional drivers from the cd to support the different operating systems - alternately, you'll have to install the drivers for the printer on each computer.

Please rate if this helps :)

    It should be - sometimes the remote computers have problems seeing the printer - if that happens, let me know and we'll work on it... I'm actually running the exact same type of setup here, 1 desktop with a printer, 2 wireless laptops and 1 wireless desktop using that printer also. We buy lots of ink. :)

How do I connect my Macbook to my Kodak wireless printer with my Belkin G+MIMO router?


When you added the WPS encryption ket to your wireless router, this secures your wireless network from unauthorized access to you wireless network.
To allow your wireless computers and wireless printer to communicate with your wireless network the wireless cards in the computers and printer needs to be configured with the WPA encryption settings that you configured in the wireless router.

How can I add a brother 145 printer so all laptops in the house can use it wireless


This model printer has only an USB printer connection and normally connected to a computer or laptop.
To connect this printer wirelessly to all laptops on your wireless network there are a couple of methods.
Connect the printer to a desktop computer and setup the printer as a shared printer. Next connect the desktop computer to your wireless router with a LAN cable and then configure the wireless laptops to connect to the shared printer on the desktop computer. NOTE - This desktop computer and printer must be on at all times for the wireless laptops to print to the printer.
OTHER METHOD
Connect the printer to an USB print server and connect the print server to the wireless router with a LAN cable. The printer drivers needs to be installed on all the wireless laptops and then the printer port needs to be deleted from the USB port and a new IP address printer port installed. This IP address will be the IP address of the print server.

How do I add a printer to my wireless network?


You would have to install a wireless print server, like a Netgear WGPS606... It has USB ports that you would connect your printer to... You could actually replace your current wireless router with this one or chain one with the other!! Or your other option would be to buy something like a TRENDnet TEW-P1UG wireless USB2.0 print server, with this you can make use of the router you have now... But either way they basically cost the same! Hope this helps!!

1. If your laptop has a built-in wireless adapter, then you don't need a belkin wireless g plus adapter.
2. You can connect to the Internet using your adapter provided that the location where you at offers wi-fi or wireless connection
3. If you want wireless connectivity at home, then you need to have a wireless router and subscribed for DSL/Cable broadband connections

How do i get an internet connection using belkin wireless g plus mimo notebook card


1) Install the wireless card on your laptop computer (driver)
2) Run wireless utility (windows - Control Panel)
3) Select your wireless network (wireless networks availables) and connect.

If your wireless network have a wep key you need to know that in order to get connected.

To do that you need a wireless router connected to your modem or a wireless modem
Be sure first to have that installed first.

If you have more questions please let me know to help you out better with this issue
