Wireless Printer Set-up
A device which can communicate with a system and give information from the system in a document form is called a printer. It converts the hard copy of the document from the system into a document form. Like other peripherals, printers can be connected to a computer in various ways. The connection methods have traditionally included printer cables, USB cables, Ethernet cables, and more recently, the wireless connection. Printers that are capable of connecting wirelessly are referred to as wireless printers. A wireless printer has several advantages over an ordinary cable-connected printer. A wireless printer can be placed farther away from the computer with which its works, which can help diminish noise or create centralized access for a printer which is shared by several people. The use of wireless printer also eliminates the danger of using long cables that involves the risk of tripping.

Wireless card issue
In order to set up a wireless printer in your computer, the first thing that you would need is a wireless card. If your system or your OS Vista has any compatibility issue with the wireless card, you would have problems during the set- up process. You need to check the compatibility of the wireless card. A corrupted or an incompatible driver would also create issues in carrying out the set-up process.
In order to connect your wireless printer, a router is required. There is a possibility that the router might not be recognized while you are connecting the printer. There could also be a compatibility problem between the router/driver and your OS. You need to install compatible drivers to fix such compatibility issues, driver file corruption, or missing errors.
Install the printer software in your computer and do a system restart if your computer prompts you to do so. After restart, click 'Start' and then go to 'Control panel'. After that, go to 'Hardware and sound', 'Printers', and then click on the 'Add a printer tool bar'. Then click on the box 'Add a network, wireless or Bluetooth printer'. This would make your computer search for the printer and you can then click on it and then you are done.
