Re: wireless printing

Hi, Through what method would you connect the printer to the netgear? I have looked at the information on both products and the netgear has no Print Server and the Printer has no Ethernet or wireless. If your printer has no ethernet or wireless and your router has no print server then the answer to your question is NO. HOWEVER: You can install the printer on any one of the pc's and then set it up as a SHARED PRINTER. If you would like further information on doing this please let me know and I will post it here. Thanks

Set a static IP on the Canon printer
IP: 192.168.x.x
Subnet mask: 255.255.x.x
Gateway: 192.168.X.1

DHCP should always be enabled on the router for your other devices to work.

you can buy a print server to connect to your printer to the network. however could you please list the printer type you have? some printers do not work over the network with a print server on mac.
the printer will still function as long as you got a phone line to it for faxes however some features like scanning will not work over the network.

Can I connect my printer to the uverse router USB port for sharin

If your using Windows operating system you can share your printer. That way you can keep your printer on one pc and when the other pc wants to print it will connect to your printer over your home network and print.
How to setup it in Windows XP
To share the printer, I opened the Printers and Faxes folder on the computer that was connected to my printer.
To open the Printers and Faxes folder
• Click Start and then click Control Panel.
• Click Printers and Other Hardware, and then click Printers and Faxes.
• In the Printers and Faxes folder, I clicked the printer's icon and, in the tasks pane, I clicked Share This Printer.
• I opened the printer's Properties dialog box, and clicked on the Sharing tab.
• I clicked Share Name, and then clicked OK.
That's it—the printer was immediately available for other computers to use.
Now that I had a network printer, I was ready to connect to it and print from other computers on the network.
To connect to the printer
• I opened Control Panel, and clicked Printers and Other Hardware.
• I clicked Add a Printer.
• Instead of adding a local printer, though, I clicked Printer Connection and then browsed the network for the printer.
The whole process took less than a minute before I was printing to the network printer as though it was connected to the computer.
