Wireless technology has greatly increased the ease and efficiency in homes and offices. Wireless technology allows several devices to easily share information without the need of several different types of wires and adapters.

For wireless operation, the system must be equipped with a wireless print server attached to the printer that will handle the print requests from the network. In order to add a printer to a wireless network, inspect your printer for an internal print server. Obtain the MAC address of the print server for the printer. Then open the router configuration page and enter the MAC address of the printer that you obtained in the network. Then save the configuration and reset the router by unplugging it from the power plug.
