Assuming your printer is network compatible:

  • If it uses Wireless, use your printer's configuration to connect to the D-Link's network. You may also want to use the D-Link's built-in DHCP controls to assign a single IP to your printer for simpler setup
  • If it has an Ethernet port, connect a cable from the Printer's Ethernet port to one of the 4 ports on the back of the router. This should connect the two and all going well, most printers will sort themselves out from here.
If your printer is not network capable, you will have to connect the printer to a computer then use Windows sharing options to share that computer's printer with the network.
Hope this helps, Alistair

Hi,

You cannot set the printer up directly on the router as the router needs to have a driver to understand how to use the printer. If you have a wireless printer, you need to enter a wireless key on the printer, you'll have to do that from the printer interface (you didn't list your printer model so i'm not sure how exactly you do that). On my wireless printer there is a nice network setup menu on the touch screen display.

Then you have to install the full drivers for the printer and tell it the printer is connected wirelessly and it looks for it and finds its IP address and allows you to connect to it.

If you do not have a wireless printer, and need to print wirelessly, you will need to buy a print server.

Setting up wireless printers can be such a hassle!
The quickest solution is to let the router sync the mac address itself, don't worry about the details of it all. Easiest way is to start wired, before you go wireless.
When setting up the printer to work with that wireless router, hook your printer up directly to the router/computer the router is connected to. This will allow for the printer/router to recognize each other and establish a connection. Then, when you use a wireless connection (wireless on laptop/ on printer also), they will recognize each other and you'll be able to connect.
This is much less of a hassle than trying to set up wirelessly.
Best of luck!

I want to connect a wireless Cannon printer to a Toshiba laptop, do I need a certain type of router? I have WiFi and WWAN internet connection, do I still need a router?

Can i hook my printer to this router Linksys wireless-g 2.4ghz


You want to connect a printer to the network.
If you have Ethernet port on the printer then you can connect it to the router with the ethernet cable. IF it is wireless printer then you will need to connect to the wireless network on the printer. In both the cases you will need to set up your printer as a network printer. If you contact the manufacturer of the printer they will tell you how to do it.
If you do not have ethernet port on the printer and it has only USB port and it is not a wireless printer then you will need a print server. You can purchase a wireless print server and you can set it up so that all the computers will be able to print onthe same printer.
If you have only the USB port and you don't want to use print server, then you can connect your printer to one of your computer. Enable File and printer sharing on all the computer. If you go to microsoft.com and search for file and printer sharing, you will get steps to enable file and printer sharing.
If you want to check the wireless settings of the router, you will need to open the set up page of the router .

How do you connect a printer to this?


Basically, if it is a wireless-ready printer, what you need is match the same wireless settings that you have from your router.

On most wireless-ready printer, you need them to connect temporarily to your computer through USB connection then run the Setup CD. You will then have the option to configure the wireless settings (the same that you have on your router), then install the printer driver afterwards. You'll be prompted when to unhook the printer from your computer to make it wireless.

Hi i have a lexmark all in one printer,recently i changed my router and now cant connect the printer wirelessly to the computer!


You will have to reconfigure the printer with the router and then reconfigure the PC. All routers don't have the IP address range. That might be the reason why it isnt working after changing the router. Also, if you were using the printer wirelessly, the SSID (network name) and the wireless security needs to be reconfigured to match your new router. The simplest way to achieve this would be to connect the printer hard wired to the router; uninstall the printer drivers completely from the PC; and run the setup disk again. The setup will walk you through the whole process.

Please get in touch if you need further clarifications.

Set up 2 wireless routers, 1st for printer, 2nd for internet


You should only need one wireless router for everything. The purpose of the router is to "route" multiple devices together. Your set-up should be something like this:

Modem connected to wireless router via Ethernet cable.
Wireless router broadcasting wireless internet connection.
Computer(s) connected to wireless router via cable or wireless adapter.
Computer with network printer sharing enabled.
Turn on wireless printer.
You should be able to detect the printer via Windows.
