Suggestions To Make Printer Wireless
What is the advantage of making a printer wireless? Explain the different ways to make a printer wireless.
You can make your printer wireless through two ways, either by using wireless technology or by setting up a wireless network with a server computer that has a printer attached to it. A printer is a hardware device which helps in taking out hard copies of documents. When you connect a printer to a wireless network, you need to check the system requirements. Your computer is installed with both hardware and software components. Using a printer, you can print a text on a paper. You might have a print server which is compatible with both wireless network and printer. You might configure your print server to access the network. While setting up the network printer and its sharing on the home or office network, you have to check that all the connections are provided.
Discussed below are the tips to make a printer wireless:
- Connect to a wireless print server
- Share printer with other computer
- Use a Bluetooth adapter
Connect to a wireless print server
Check the USB port in your printer; then, you might plug in a wireless print server through which you could connect your printer. One of the benefits of having a print server is that there is no need to connect the printer to a computer. Before purchasing the print server, you need to ensure that it is compatible with your printer. You have to have to plug the printer into the printer server and using an Ethernet cable, you might connect that to the router. When you set up a router, you may install the software and configure it.
Share printer with other computer
If there are several computers to share a printer and if the printer is to be made wireless, you might connect it to a host computer. For that, go to 'Control panel' and enable the printer to be shared on the network. If the host computer is powered off, other computers in the network might not get access. So ensure that you have proper power connection and the host computer is turned on.
With the help of Bluetooth, you might be able to make your printer wireless. Bluetooth is a wireless technology that allows communication between Bluetooth compatible devices. Install the software for the Bluetooth adapter. Then, open printer options, add a printer, and choose 'Bluetooth printer' from the list of Bluetooth-enabled printers. Then, choose your printer from the list.
