If your pirnter is a regular USB printer, you need a wireless or wired print server, and the printer is connected to the print server.
If your printer is a wireless printer, it already has a print server inside, you have to go, with your browser, to the address that the dhcp server on your router assigned to it, in order to access the setup of the printer.

Hooking up wireless router to phone jack


Please add a comment with your router model number and the type of network service that you have.

Most routers need to be connected to a modem that connects to the outside line. (Depending on your service, this could be a DSL or cable modem or a unit that connects to a phone.)

For a wired incoming network:
You connect your RJ-11 (phone cable) to the appropriate-sized port on the modem. Then connect a RJ-45 cable between the modem and your router. Then connect any wired devices via additional RJ-45 cables (many routers include a four port switch). A few have a USB connection option for one computer; most with USB ports have the other type of USB connection for sharing a hard drive or printer. Use one wired connection to set up the router, including your encryption and password to secure your wireless network. (For some ISPs, you'll need to do some extra setup, including programming your username and password. This is usually not needed for DHCP connections, where the IP address is dynamically generated.) Finally, use the encryption protocol and password to set up the wireless network on your wireless devices. (Under Windows, go to the Windows Network control panel and choose Add New Network. For other wireless devices, you'll need to find a similar setting.)

There are a few modem/router combination units. However, those are less common. They will have both the RJ-11 and RJ-45 ports. This is for wired networks. For the devices that let you share your cell phone's network, you will probably see a USB port of some type on the unit.

I hope this helps.

How can I connect my printer to my wireless network


If you have a wireless-enabled printer, you can use the printer's configuration to connect it to the router. If you have a wired connection printer (ethernet port) connect it to one of the ports on the back of the router with an Ethernet cable and the printer should sort itself out. If your printer is not network-enabled, you will need to connect it directly to a network-connected computer, then use Windows' sharing settings to share the printer to the network.
Hope this helps, Alistair

My d link router will not connect to the internet from my phone jack. I where I receive my phone and internet connections. What steps do I take to install to receive the highh speed connections?


The phone jack must be connected to a modem, which is then connected to the router via an ethernet cable. To connect:
1. Connect the phone cord from the jack in the wall to the jack in your modem of choice. Turn on the modem. 2. Connect a CAT-5 ethernet cable from the correct jack in the modem to the correct jack in the router. 3. If using a wired connection, connect an ethernet cable from the router to your computer. Otherwise, simply activate the wireless card of your computer and select from the available wireless networks.

Had printer working with desktop, purchased wiless and cannot get printer to communicate.


Hi there,

Well it's better if you tell me which operating system you are using....?
anyway please follow the below steps to communicate your printer to the desktop  -

1. Check if your printer is network ready. Many newer models are designed to work on networks. Examine the documentation to see if your printer supports Wi-Fi (802.11x) or Bluetooth. 
 
2. Add network support to your printer. If your printer is not already wireless you can connect it to a wireless router using the RJ-45 Jack (it resembles a large telephone jack). You can also buy an expansion card that will add a jack or buy an external print server that will connect to the USB or parallel port.
 
3. Connect your printer to the network. If your printer is not wired, you’ll have to connect it directly to your wireless router. Connect a networking cable from the RJ-45 Jack on the printer (or adapter) to the router. Plug it into any jack except the UPLINK. The printer should automatically connect to the network when turned on.
 
4. Install printer drivers on all computers. Using the disc that came with the printer or drivers downloaded from the manufacturer, install the printer’s drivers onto each computer on the network.
 
5. Print. You should be able to access the printer just like any other wireless device. Select the printer from the Print menu when you print.

Share Your Printer in Windows
 
1. Install the printer. Set up the printer as normal on a machine that is already connected to the wireless network. Connect all necessary cables and install all necessary drivers.
 
2. Open the printers and faxes folder. Click "Start," then "Control Panel," then "Printers and Other Hardware" and then "Printers and Faxes."
 
3. Share your printer. Find the icon for the printer you just installed. Click the icon once and then select SHARE THIS PRINTER in the tasks pane on the left. Now, right click the icon, select properties and go to the SHARING tab. Click "Share Name," and then click "Okay."
 
4. Connect to the printer. On the other computers within the network, open the control panel and click "Printers and Other Hardware." Select "Add a Printer."
 
5. Select "Printer Connection." When prompted, select this option instead of the local printer. Find and select the printer you just installed and select it. 
 
6. Print as normal. Next time you print a page, send it to your networked printer.

Good Luck!!

Thanks

Your router is turned off that's why it says network cable is unplugged and your wireless does not work. Check if there are lights on the front panel of the router. Make sure the power adapter is plugged in

I need to hook up and start using a wireless router, can i get some help starting?


hi licking;
what type of wireless router are you using? a linksys? or a dlink?
do you have color coded cables?

try this:
from your modem(the box given to you by your isp), connect a cable from your modem LAN port to the WAN port of your wireless router.

If your going to connect a pc wired to your wireless router, you can connect a cable from your wireless router LAN port to your lan card of your PC.

give more details and ill be happy to help you. :)

Is it possible to connect cat5 cable to phone jack - from the router to the printer


No, Cat5 and phone jacks are purposefully different sizes. They have no compatibility.

If you want to share a printer over a network and it doesn't directly have a cat5 port (most don't) your best option is to set up a basic home network using the wizard, make sure that FILE AND PRINTER SHARING is switched on, and then share the printer as a resource on the machine it's already linked to. Then as long as that machine is turned on (even if it's not doing anything) the printer will be available to other machines on the network, even if those other machines are communicating wirelessly.
