Benefits of wireless printers
Most importantly, a wireless printer eliminates the need to walk up to the printer every time you give a printing command. In addition to that, you can share the printer with several computers without making a net of wires in your home or office. You can also get rid of damaged wires, that is a common reason which renders your printer useless. Apart from that, you will be easily able to shift the printer from one place to another, as you can move it freely without dragging the wires around it. This means that you will not need to look for an electrical socket nearby so that you can attach your printer to it. Because these printers have a good range of reception, you can place your printer in any part of the room which means that you do not necessarily need to place it near your computer system.
Resolve the error "Access Denied"
When you try printing from a network printer, you may receive the "Access Denied" error. This kind of error occurs when you try to print from a computer with different operating systems. In order to fix this, you should first of all make sure that all the computers in the network are running on the same operating system and they are properly connected to your network. Also ensure that all the computers in the network are set for sharing the printer you are trying to give command to.
If Windows cannot detect your network printer, then go to 'Control Panel,' click on the 'Hardware and Sound' button and click on 'Printers.' Click on 'Add a Printer' button, choose to 'Add a network, Bluetooth or wireless printer.' The computer will ask you to choose the network printer page and here, you should click on 'The printer that I want is not listed.' If you need to find the printer by name or TCP/IP address, type the location of the printer and click on the 'Next' button. Keep clicking on the 'Next' button until you reach the 'Finish' page. By doing this, the computer will detect your printer in the network and you will be able to use it as per your requirements.
