Question about 2wire (1000-000057-000) Modem
I have a 2wire 2701hgv-w gateway wi fi modem and a brother mfc 260c printer and i wanted to know if the printer could be connected to the modem so i can print wireless from all computers connected to thewireless network
This is a little tricky technically it your printer isn't made to go onto the network, but you and do one of to things... let me start with the most cost effective way and that is
1. Hook your Printer up to a computer that is already on the network and then go into windows and SHARE that printer giving access to all the computers to print to it that you need to. I don't know what Operating System you have so your going to have to give more information to get clarification on exactly what you need to do in the Operating System to share the printer. The CONS of this approach is that you can only print to that printer when that computer is on. So if you want to have continuous ability to print to that printer you will have to keep your computer on.
2. You can get what they call a Print Server... and connect it to your printer and your network.. turning your printer into a network printer. Of course you might need to get more detail depending on what Print Server you choose. The Cons of this approach is that ofcourse your going to have to buy more equipment... but the pro's are you won't have to keep other computers on in the network to print to it. One last note you will find Print Servers in the store where you find Routers and Hubs.
The best of luck to you... and I hope this Helps... after you decide which way you want to go you might want to contact me or one of the other techs to get more percise approaches to installing your equipment... but we will need to know you Operating System, and the Print Server... if you go that route. Good Luck! I hope this works for you!!!
