Steps To Prepare A USB Printer Wireless
Most of the people these days have access to multiple computers. Whether it's a laptop in one room or even a desktop PC in another, they both will surely need access to a printer. Sharing a printer can be sometimes a complex task to setup, and the host PC on the other hand will always be needed for any other computers to print to it. According to Epson Printer Technical Support experts, one of the greatest solutions is simply to add a wireless printer to the network. If a user is working with an existing printer, they can easily turn printer into a wireless mode by hooking it up to a wireless print server section. A print server is defined as a tiny box which easily has capability to connect to the printer by allowing it to be visible and accessed by other devices in the home as well.

Steps To Prepare A USB Printer Wireless
Here one really don't have to be a network guru to proceed with the installation phase of the print server. Print servers usually are available with a CD drive which allows people to set up and configure it. There are a few things that need to be considered while setting up of wireless printer.
Step1: Working with plug in process

    ·Plug in the print server into the printer with the help of a USB cable.
    ·If users wish to put the printer on the wired network then also they are advised to plug an Ethernet cable into the back of it.
    ·Plug in the power cable thereafter to easily proceed with the process.
    Step2: Working with the SSID
      ·Insertion of the CD drive right into a computer on the network is an essential phase as advised by Epson Printer Support professionals and then setup the screen to launch it easily.
      ·Users are requested to put the SSID name of the router which will be the name you will see while accessing the router over WiFi.
      Step3: Working with DHCP feature
        ·For easy process, users are requested to allow it to obtain an IP address via DHCP. More experienced users can easily opt to assign an IP address to the printer.
        ·When asked, select the Infrastructure Mode icon instead of Ad Hoc.
        Step4: Analyzing the PC
        ·Users need to go around each PC and then run the CD which was assigned with the print server. The software will then install a driver for the print server which will make visible the printer on the network. Once the print driver is installed, simply run it by going to the Start menu and then select the All Programs icon.
        Step5: Printer driver option
          ·If users did not already have access to the printer installed in their computer, then they might need to obtain printer drivers from the printer manufacture.
          ·One can easily make almost any printer wireless. They just need to get the correct print server for the printer.
          As of now, your printer issues have been completely resolved but we still recommend you to get in touch with our Epson Printer Customer Support Toll-Free 1-800-213-8289 professionals for any related queries.

How to connect hp pavilion to brother mfc9560cdw without router


This model Bother printer has a 10baseT LAN connection and can be connected to your LAN network and to your HP laptop via the wireless router. Connect a LAN cable from the printer to the wireless router.
To print from your HP laptop, check the IP address range your wireless router issues to your wireless network, it maybe 192.168.1.*** then configure the brother printer with a fixed IP address with the same IP address range but higher address eg. 192.168.1.10 so it does not clash with any other IP addresses.
Next install the Brother printer driver normally.
Then configure the Brother printer Properties.
Click Start - Printers and faxes - right click on the Brother printer - click Properties - Port tab - click Add Port - Standard TCP/IP port -
Port Name eg. 192.168.1.10
Printer name eg Brother
Click OK
Then do a TEST print if it does not work then the IP address is probably incorrect.

I purchased a SBG901 and have connected 2 MAC pc's wireless - 1 HP printer and 1 Compag laptop, I have one more pc which is running Vista on a HP Pavilion dv5 and visited the HP website to update


It might not be anything your doing wrong, the wireless portion of the card may have just gone bad. you could check this out by reconnecting your old router back up to verify it works or doesn't. If it doesn't work your wireless in your laptop went bad presuming that the wireless was not deactivated on the laptop. if it does work the Vista Driver may be incompatible with the new router, you may be able to hook up both routers at the same time which would allow you to keep using your HP system.

Wirelessly connect to hp deskjet f380 printer


This model printer only has USB printer connection and it cannot be connected to a wireless network directly.
If you have a wireless router then you can connect a print server to this HP printer and then connect the print server to the wireless router. This will allow you to print wirelessly yo the HP printer when you configure the printer server and configure the printer driver in the computers to connect to the printer port IP address of the print server.

Another option is to find an old laptop, with "wireless" capabilities and a Parallel Port.

Connect the printer to the laptop.

Connect the laptop to your wireless network.

Tell the laptop to "share" the printer.

Then, any computer on your network can "find" the networked printer, and can print to it.

Printing remotely from laptop -- can I?


I assume it's a Brother printer not your brother's printer right? I have an HP and it's a wireless printer which is accessible through my network, you have to install the printer driver and software on to the other laptop that is connected wirelessly to your network.
