One needs a wireless network extender when one decides to go to an area where their home phone or internet service is unable to be used. For instance, if one were to go outside and walk around, one would be able to do so if they had a wireless network extender.

How can you connect 2 displays wireless from about seventy feet away from a computer?

There are a number of wireless HDMI extenders available and these can be used to send a DVI signal from one point to another. There are fewer wireless VGA extenders but they can be found. Beware of cheap wireless systems. Seventy feet is a considerable distance to cover and the low cost wireless extenders may prove noisy or unreliable. If a computer can be attached to each display, then a wireless network can be used to replicate the image from a master computer. Wireless networks are often more reliable than low cost video senders but they will need more set up than video senders.

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.

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.

All what you need is a wireless router (in a case if you want to have internet you need to have also internet connection to the router) and at least one wireless adapter or a computer with a lan card (almost all of them), and a lan cable. After that you need to log in the router and configure (if it was not) the DHCP server (how to do that is written in the router manual). If you did everything right you have a wireless network (in the case when you are using wireless adapters). PS: Your network adapters (wireless and wired) have to be set in "get an ip address from a DHCP server".
