Brothers printer without a computer


If this is a Brother MFC-J470DW Inkjet, then it is possible to connect it to a wireless network. If you internet device is actually a "wireless router" as well as a modem (where cable or phone line connects) then you should be able to follow the manual in setting up the newtork on the printer. You may need a phone, iPad or other device that can browse the internet, to register the printer properly and complete setup. There should be a support number you can call for free (check your setup documents). Most companys are anxious to help new cutomers and give them step by step instructions. You can also try http://www.brother.ca/en/customer_care - there are several support option there.

NOTE:
If your internet modem is not a router and only has a wired connection for direct to a PC (a cable that has what looks like big phone jack ends), you would have to add a wireless router instead of a PC. This can be a complicated job, and beyond the scope of this answer.
This printer does support Google print, Apple AirPrint and other network printing (for phones, ipads etc) so once connected, it could be very useful. Brother Canada Customer Support

Can i print from my computer without the usb 2.0 cable


To print documents from your computer you will need to have it connected via USB. If you just want to print pictures you can load them on to an SD card (or any of the other supported cards for this printer), plug the card into the printer's card reader and print directly from the printer.

If you want to be able to print without using USB you should look into wireless printers such as the Kodak ESP 7250.

Hello, How do I connect my Epson stylus PHOTO px700 to my laptop?


NETGEAR’s 54 Mbps Wireless Print Server with 4-port Switch allows you to connect one or two printers to your existing wireless network, without using unsightly Ethernet cables. Simply place your printers anywhere in your home or office that works best for you, plug them into the print server’s USB ports, and the Smart Wizard set-up function automatically guides you through configuration. Then you can send your business documents to a high-end color printer, and your kids’ homework to a black-and-white printer. The print server also acts as a wireless Ethernet bridge, connecting a cluster of up to four PCs and laptops without requiring dedicated wireless adapters. I t employs powerful WEP Encryption and WPA-PSK to keep your wireless network secure, and interoperates with all standard b and g wireless devices. All this in a sleek, space-saving stand-up case.

Wireless printing impossible . How can I solve it?


Hi Paul,

Am sorry to be the bearer of bad news but your printer is not a wireless printer by default. If you would like to be able to print wirelessly and have a bluetooth connection on your laptop/desktop, you have the option of buying an adapter.

The HP bt300 wireless printer adapter uses Bluetooth wireless technology allowing you to print without using a cable. In general, Bluetooth wireless technology is a short range wireless technology that allows connection between devices without requiring a cable. By using your HP bt300, printing is possible from a camera phone, PDA, digital camera, or computer (currently to a computer using the Windows operating system only) to selected HP printers.

Unfortunately, this adapter runs about 145-153$ not including shipping or handling. Am probably giving myself a two star rating by saying this, but your best bet might be to just purchase a wireless printer. I have a wireless 3-in-1 (scan/fax/print) that I bought for about 120$ and it works like a dream. Check out your local Office Depot or Best Buy and take a look.

Hope this helps!

HOW DO I USE A WIRELESS PRINTER WITH NO ROUTER. I WANT TO PRINT FROM TWO COMPUTERS, THAT BOTH USE DIAL UP INTERNET


You can attach the printer directly through USB cable to your computer and print, or you can connect the printer and your computer to the same wireless network and then print using the wireless and your connection.
Internet is not necessary, only a communication path needs to be established. For this whether its your neighbor's wifi network, your own wifi network, a usb cable connection between your pc and printer etc printing will be accomplished.

Printing through wireless


hi,

if you had the printer before using the USB cable. then you changed it to wireless, try the ff:

1. re-insert the CD the came with the box, the cd that you used to install the printer Software to your computer.
2. after inserting the cd, it will give you option "add a device".
3. click on that to install the printer driver for WIRELESS.

note: the reason why you cant print, is mainly because the printer driver you have is still for USB connection. so inorder for you to be able to print, you need to install a printer DRIVER for wireless... That should WORK..
