    A little more direction on this please? What does "right interface" mean?

  • D Tacey Jun 11, 2008

    Thanks - I needed to check for myself because I have a kid here who says that particular printer needs something else that cost about $200 to make it operate wireless. Any truth to that? It does have a usb and serial port on it.

  • D Tacey Jun 11, 2008

    Yes. It is a Linksys WRT54GL with 4 ports.

    I have three computers set up on it via the little usb antennae. Nothing connected directly except for the dsl modem. It is over by the printer.

  • D Tacey Jun 11, 2008

    So, if you don't mind, what do I need to do? Do I need another usb antennae to plug into the printer? I probably should download the driver also I would suspect.

    If your printer is USB then you need a wireless USB print server. If it is a parallel interface, then you need a parallel USB print server.

    Do you have a wireless router already?

    You don't need nothing else then.

    You just need a wireless print server for your printer that is for USB printers.

How to print wireless to my printer


You need a printer with a built-in wireless system, or buy a wireless router with a server port, and then attach your printer in this router. It will define a IP to your printer that will be visible over all you network.

Will my x2500 print wireless?


It is not possible to connect this printer wirelessly because it only has an USB connection to a computer unless you attach this printer to a print server and then to a wireless router.
Alternatively you can set up this printer as a Shared printer on a computer on your 10baseT LAN network. Other computers on your network can then printer to this printer provided the computer with the printer is switched on (booted up).

Can the epson R220 print wireless


It can't print wirelessly with the native hardware. It has a USB 1.1 connection. You may be able to find a print server that can connect to a wireless router. However, you will need to check the specifications. Some print servers will only work with select printers or OS combinations.

The specifications for the R220 are here: http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/consumer/consDetail.jsp?BV_UseBVCookie=yes&infoType=Specs&oid=58654761&category=Products .

I hope this helps.

Cindy Wells
(note since this is an older printer with a USB 1.1 connection, you can expect the printer to be slow with a wireless connection. If your signal strength drops, you may need to reboot everything (computer, print server, router and printer).)

Wondering what I need to print wirelessly from laptop with this printer


If you printer hasn't a built-in wireless connection and if you haven't a wireless router then -
You need a wireless router plus print server. Connect this print server to the wireless router with a LAN cable. Then the printer is then connected to the print server's printer port.
The laptop's wireless card is then configured with the router's wireless settings.
The laptop is then installed with the printer driver and the printer port needs to be changed/configured with the print server's IP address.
ALTERNATELY
If the printer is connected to a desktop computer on your home LAN and it is also connected to your wireless router. Then you can set this printer as A Shared Printer on your desktop computer, but this desktop computer and the printer has to be powered up for the laptop to print to the printer.

How do i set up my wireless canon printer to my laptop? I keep getting messages saying can't find the printer.


Difficulty: Moderately Easy
Instructions
Things You'll Need: · Wireless print server
· USB printer
· Ethernet cable
· Computer
1. Step 1
Obtain a wireless print server that is compatible with both your wireless network and your printer. While the printer’s documentation may not explicitly say that it is compatible with a print sever, many are compatible, and this can be verified by checking the website of the print server’s manufacturer. If you have a multifunction printer, only the print function will work with most wireless print servers, though a few have recently added support for scanning and the printer’s other functions.
Step 2 Read all of the documentation that came with the wireless print server. The manual will detail the specifics of the installation routine.
Step 3 Connect the printer to the wireless print server via the USB cable. Connect the print server’s Ac adapter and turn the unit on.
Step 4 Connect an Ethernet cable between the wireless print server and your computer. This will be used for the initial setup only.
Step 5 Insert the CD supplied with the print server into your CD-Rom drive. Start the software if it does not start automatically. The application will walk you through the installation process, which includes setting the unit’s IP address, setting an access password, configuring it to connect to the wireless network, installing the drivers that allow the print server to use the printer and installing the print drivers on your computers.
Step 6 Choose how your print server will be addressed. Most units are set up to use dynamic addressing by default, which means that your wireless router will assign an IP address to it. This allows the server to be easily installed on the network, but it also means that the IP address of the printer may change over time. The other option is to assign a static IP address to your print server. This option is more reliable, because the print server will always use the same IP address, making it easier for the computers to find the printer and easier to access the print server’s online configuration application. If your router has the IP address of 192.168.0.1, for instance, set the print server to something like 192.168.0.2 or 192.168.0.3, as long as another device does not use that address.
Step 7
Set a password to be used to access the unit’s online configuration application.
Step 8 Configure the print server to access your wireless network. Give it the same SSID network name as your router and set it to use the same wireless channel. If encryption is used on the router, enable encryption on the print server, and enter the encryption key or password.
Step 9 Follow the instructions given by the print server’s software for installing printer drivers on the unit.
Step 10
Disconnect the Ethernet cable and allow the unit to connect via the wireless network.
Step 11 Install the printing drivers on each computer that will use the printer.
Step 12 Access the print server’s online configuration application to verify all settings by entering the IP address of the unit into a web browser, using the “http://192.168.0.2” format. Enter the administrator name and password.
Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

Is it possible to set up the printer for wireless printing?


Hi,
This is not a wireless printer, however, you can create a wireless envirnoment by using a wireless router or a wireless printer server router. Linksys and others carry the routers for around $40.00. You would hook the printer directly to that router and the router would have an IP address that all wireless devices could see.

Good Luck.

I have a wire less network set up and want to use my lexmark x1270 so i can print wireless but cable is USB and do i need to get a cable to put into my router or??


You can't set it up wirelessly, persay. but you can use a special bluetooth adapter in the "pic bridge" slot on the front. I have seen them on e-bay from £5($8) to £12($17) or so.

Need my laptop to communicate wireless to printer


If the printer does not have a built-in network card/print server then there is a couple of ways to do this.
If you have a desktop computer connected to the wireless router with a LAN cable, then connect the printer to the desktop computer and make this printer a shared printer on your network. This means that the desktop computer and printer needs to be on when you want to print from the laptop.
The other way is to purchase a print server, connect the printer to the print server and connect the print server with a LAN cable to the Wireless router.
If you don't have sufficient network ports on the wireless router then you need to purchase a hub. Then connect the hub and wireless router with a LAN cable and then the print server to the hub and other computers to the hub.
Setting up the wireless printing will depend upon which method you want to adopt and I can advise you when further when you are ready.
