Some printers have a wireless adapter, but most of them don't. There are two cases. You connect the printer to a computer which has a wireless adapter, or if your printer has a lan card you can connect it to your wireless router and use advantages of wireless networking in that way.

Directly you cannot do that. But you can do it available through wireless if you connect it to a computer which has a wireless adapter. After that you need to share the printer.

remote printer is these printer we can connect to many computer by using wireless comunication is called remote printer

using a usb cable which is a connection between the computer and the printer only or wirelessly which means everyone on the network can use the printer but only if computer and printer is wireless

You have to connect the printer to computer which has either wireless card or computer connected to the wireless router with a cable. After that connect the printer to the computer and go in printer settings. The one you need is sharing. Choose "Sharing", and add users allowed to send print jobs.

yes you do need a wireless printer for a wireless computer

Yes, you can. Connect to computer which is connected to your router, share the printer in its settings.

A laptop with an inbuilt printer. A laptop with an inbuilt printer.

If it does not have wireless interface, there is nothing you can do to make it wireless. Unless you connect to computer with wireless card and share the printer.

There are two options. First, you connect the printer to a computer which has a wireless connection and share the printer for network users. Second, if your wireless router supports Print server, you can connect the printer directly to the router and configure print server options in order to get access to the printer through wireless network.

If the printer is connected to another computer via a cable, then you need something for the wireless computer to connect to. It would either have to connect to a wireless router or you could have a wireless card in the other computer and configure the two to talk to each other. But using a router is a far better solution. Then you can setup the printer as shared from the first computer and configure the two comptuers to be in the same workgroup and share it that way.

If the computer has wireless capability, then you can set up an ad hoc network for the computer and printer (only).If the computer doesn't have wireless capability at all, then it should be fairly obvious that attempting to connect to a wireless printer (or anything else) wirelessly is going to be an exercise in futility.However, most wireless printers (I won't say all, but all the ones I've personally seen) have cable ports for connecting via more traditional methods as well.

Connect the printer to a network computer that is connected via a wireless router. If that doesn't work, use the built in WiFi connection and tell the computer to look for it and add it is a separate printer, then set it as the default printer.

The main advantage for using the print server is you dont have to connect your printer to a computer and share the printer on that computer (printer shared computer). To be more specific, it means you dont need printer shared computer anymore and can use that computer for other purposes.

No, Hamachi is just a bunch of servers on the internet you connect to from your computer. So there is no way possible to bother the printer.

Depends on if the printer is wireless and if you are using a wireless cable. Most HP printers use a standard USB to printer cord. However, we would have to know the exact make and model of your computer to help you out

This means that it is capable of functioning as a network printer (thus does not need to be connected directly to the computer) and can connect to a wireless network.

It comes that you have a wireless network. If so what you need is a printer with a wireless adapter or with a lan adapter. If you have a printer with a wireless adapter you need to configure it for your wireless network. If you have a printer with a lan adapter you need a lan cable. Use the lan cable to connect the printer to the router. After that you need to find out the printer ip address. If you have a printer without a network interface you still will be able to print wirelessly. You have to connect the printer to one of computers connected to the network. After that in the printer settings you have to share the printer. And using network environment find and conncect to the computer with the shared printer.

Wireless is exactly that, your printer does not need to be connected to your computer

yes you can connect the Lexmark E120N Laser Printer to your wireless network, it works great.

Answer:Yes, but you first need a wireless router and your network configured.Next, install the drivers/software for your printer on your computer (check your printer manual for directions)Afterward, configure your printer to the wireless network. (this depends of the type of printer)

Wifi printers connect to the wireless network in your home (your wireless router) in order to allow for printing without physically plugging your printer into you computer. Information is sent from the computer to your router to the printer which means that you can print from anywere in your house to a single stationary printer wirelessly.

Can you tell me how to get my new HP notebook to print from my new HP6500 wireless printer.

To connect a printer to a wireless router, it would help to read the instructor's manual then open control panel, select your printer and it's properties and start the set up through there.

If you're sharing the printer with other computers, it can be networked either by wire or wireless. If your use is for one computer, parallel, usb, firewire, and 802.11 are common options.
