Wirelessly printing?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I've always heard of stuff like this but since I wasn't interested I didn't care much at all, my question is; Can I print stuff wireless with my PSC 1610 printer? I'm not quite sure but I need a wireless print server correct? All I do is connect the usb into that device then and the ethernet cable into my other router and boom I should get wireless printing capabilities?

Yes, just make sure the printer is on the same network and workgroup as your computer, and use the install printer feature in the control panel.

Do you want to make the printer print wireless and have no network cords to the router or have printer connect to a network with wired network cord?

because you have the psc a standard wireless print server won't cut it. You will need to get a wireless mfp server instead. There are only a couple thaqt i know of and neither of thoso work very well. You'll be better off picking up a cheap Lexmark *hak hak, coff* with wireless built in, it'll be a lot less expensive.

It has wireless features? I am looking on a specs page and it doesnt say that.

Do you have a wireless router?

If so.

Just get a usb to ethernet convertor. Plug it in the USB on the printer and plug in a ethernet cord (blue cord) and other end into your router.

Printer Servers only is needed if you have multiply people printing at the same time.

Yes. You need the convertor if you don't have the ethernet port which looks like this:.

Then you connect the ethernet cable into the port and the other end into the router.

To make your computer detect it go:

Vista:
Network -> Add a Printer -> Add a Network, wireless, or Bluetooth printer. Then follow the instructions.
