If you have a wireless computer do you need to have a router to hook up to a printer if it is the second computer connected to it?
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.
It needs a wireless card or it should be connected to computer connected to the wireless router you are using for your network.
Yes, you can. Connect to computer which is connected to your router, share the printer in its settings.
it is possible to configure the computer and printer to use Ad-Hoc networking that allows the two to communicate directly without the need for a wireless router or wireless access point. My experience with Ad-Hoc networks, though, has been hit and miss: it seems that they are not as stable as traditional wireless networks, so I suggest getting a router/wireless access point for $30 or so to insure the best stability and performance possible.

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.
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.
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)
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.
How can you Share a printer between two computers through a router one computer is desk top and the other is a laptop?
Depends on where the printer is located. If you can have it connected to the router, on the router install a print manager. On each computer connected to the router using your LAN, install the printer using the print manager as the target.
Will a wireless router work when it is connected to a desktop computer that doesn't have a wireless card?
Are you asking if the computer will get internet? If so... Yes. as long as the router is connected to a modem via network cable and also connected to the desktop computer via network cable.The computer will not connect to the wireless signal sent out by the router. Without a wireless card, it will only work if it is hard patched via network cable to a working modem. If you are asking if the wireless… Read More
A wireless router will usually be connected directly to a high speed modem between the modem and any other device. This allows the router to correctly pass internet requests from the local network (computers connected wirelessly or to a standard port) to the ISP (the high speed modem connected to the Internet port). Connecting a wireless router to a computer would be unusual but it could function if connected to the network port on the… Read More
You can't add wireless router to your computer. You can a wireless router to your network. If you do so, it does make your network wireless. In order to use your network wirelessly you need to have wireless adapter for all your computers you want to be connected wireless.
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.
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.
Printers are commonly connected by one of three ways Older printers (and some new ones) are connected by a special cable that runs from the "Parallel Printer Port" on the computer to the printer. Most newer printers can be connected by a special USB cable. Some new printers can also be connected by wireless either directly or via a router. IF ALL ELSE FAILS, READ THE INSTRUCTIONS.
ethernet cable from the wireless router should be connected at the back of the tower the port is normally yellow
Yes, as long as the router is connected to a modem and your computer has a wireless adapter and you are within the range of the router.
It is possible that the router (wireless network) that you are connecting to is not currently connected to a modem (the internet). In this case, your computer will say that it is connected to a wireless network, but the network is not connected to the internet. If you have access to the router, check to see that the router has an ethernet connection to a modem.
If the laptop computer has a wireless adapter installed, either internally or externally, and it can communicate over that adapter to the wireless router, it is time to disconnect the Ethernet cable. The computer will only use one network path to the router at a time.
I am using wireless connection through my router It sHow is wireless connected but i could'nt open web page?
Check you're connected to the internet, and that your computer is allowed to web browse by your router.
You hook two computers to one modem by getting a router. Then you hook the router to the modem and you hook each computer to the router. You can also run your printer from the router. If your computer has bluetooth or wireless, modern routers can communicate with your computer or printer in a different room.
switch the printer on before the router
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… Read More
If you have a wireless router just get a wireless adapter for the computer. It can be USB or PCI adapter. And connect your new adapter to the router in the same way as you connected the first computer.
You can do it in at least two different ways. First one is to get a wireless router configure it properly for your particular wireless network. Of course, you will a wireless router. Second one is to connect your printer to a computer with wireless card, and share it using windows features (if you are using windows).
I do it through a router. My cord is plugged into the router. The router is plugged into the printer. In theory we could download the stuff to connect the other computer to the printer through the wireless connection but since it is hooked up directly to a different printer, we don't bother.
It depends on what you mean by "plug in" and "computer". It also may matter what particular type of wireless router you have. It's fairly common for a wireless router to also be a wired router... that is, it may have several downstream TCP/IP ports you could connect a computer to. Then again, it may not. It will always have an upstream port. This can be connected to a computer, to a cable or DSL… Read More
Yes, and you can connect many more devices. The router should have at least 4 ethernet ports to connect to. And/or you can connect wireless also. If you have more then 4 wired devices then you can use a 4, 8, or 16 port ethernet Switch to connect to the Router. Myself I have 3 desktops (wired), 3 wireless and 1 wired laptops, an X-Box 360 (wired), a Wii (wireless), a BlueRay player (wireless) and… Read More
It depends... If your printer supports wireless communication you need to make sure that you configured it properly. If it does not have a wireless card you have at least 2 choices. First one is connect the printer to one of your computers and share it within your working group. Or if your router has a printer server, and your printer is USB you can connect the printer to the router and use the router… Read More
I have one printer and four computers what gadget can I use to print from four computers to my printer without transferring the connection?
It depends on if you have a net-workable printer or not. If you have a wireless or ethernet equipt printer then you could use an wireless router that usually has 4 ethernet ports. I have my computers (six of them) hooked to an ethernet switch (and a couple connected wireless) which is hooked to a wireless router. My printer is wireless (or ethernet capable) and can be used by all my computers without doing a… Read More
For wireless internet connections does one computer need to be connected to the base or can all computers be wireless?
One has to be connected to a base In a wireless home network, there is no requirement for a computer to be connected, via wire/cable. The modem must be wired to router is the only requirement.
Yes. However, you will lose you INTERNET connection if you were connected via a wireless router.
Instal a wireless card in your computer. Cheers You can also install a wireless router. If your computer is already wireless capable, then all you need is a Wireless Broadband connection. Most cable Internet services have a wireless option and all you really need is a wireless router connected to any high speed Internet connection.
You can access the router's menu, then go to the page which shows all connected devices to your router. It will be different for each specific router.
Yes, you do. Even if you are going to have only one computer connected wiressly you need to have a wireless router for that.
That depends on your printer and what other network equipment you have. I'm assuming that your printer is NOT wireless (WiFi, IR, etc). You still need SOME kind of wireless communication on your network. In my case, I have a wireless router attached to my cable modem. Let's start with this configuration. From here there are at least three options: 1. I have a desktop computer located near the router and printer. I can install… Read More
You should use a wireless router to use multiple wired/wireless devices. Once you set the computer up you just set the printer up the same way just as if it was another computer. With a router you get one more wall from the internet and when you add anymore network devices, Blueray player, Wii, PS2, X-Box, etc, your already set to go.
yes you can use a wireless router with a computer.
you can use wifi if only your pda is equipped with wifi, and wireless router is connected to either DSL, or cable modem. in order to access the internet, you need to enter the wep key into your pda. wep key can be found back of the wireless router, if not, you have to assign a wep key from the computer which is connected to the wireless router.. asian623 If you have a wireless router… Read More
Is their a way to remotely access your router setup page at home without a computer connected to it?
Nope. You must be connected to the wireless signal from the router to access the setup page, the setup page for your router isn't an actual website.
No, this is not a wireless printer. If you want, you can wire it into your Ethernet network and then it might work as a wireless printer if the Ethernet connects to a WiFi router.
A node is a device connected to a network such as a computer or a game console. (Each device connected to a network is referred to as a node. A node can be a computer, printer, game console, or router.)
Yes, you can. You assign for both ip addresses from the same network (manually). And using Add hardware wizard add the printer. It might very tricky to do.
a wireless modem means it has a wireless router built in. A wireless router means just a wireless router. if your modem is not wireless, you will need just a wireless router
No, you don't, but you should have a wireless network card installed in your computer in order to receive/transmit signals from/to wireless router. Of course, if your wireless router has ethernet ports, you can attach computer with a cable, but in this case router will be working as traditional ethernet router, not wireless.
Wireless printers allow a single printer to be networked by other computers on your wireless network, allows you to make a central location for all printer users, allows you to place the printer further from your computer without running USB cable or further than USB code allows. It does require a wireless router as the hub. Depends on what you want and need.
A wireless card in your computer, or a wireless USB stick, in order that the computer can connect to the router
The differences between cable and wireless internet is that, when it is "cable" internet a physical cable is connected between the computer and the router. Whereas the "wireless" internet is wireless, it sends information through the air to your computer.
Is there any wireless router through which LAN in surrounding area can be viewed without connecting any cable?
If such router is connected to that lan either thought wireless or wire, than the answer is yes. Any router can do that. If the router is connected to the lan, no router can do that.
A wireless router is like a Modem (internet connection machine) but does not require cables to be connected to the computer itself. You can go on the internet where there is WIFI or wireless connection available when there is a wireless router available. All you need is a WEP code and WPN to gain access. When you have a wireless router, you don't have to worry about dial up or getting kicked off the server… Read More
