Printers are those devices that are essential for taking physical copies of electronic files on a computer. There are many different types of printers such as LED printers, laser printers, Wi-Fi printers, all-in-one printers etc. Wi-Fi printers have become very popular in the recent past. Wi-Fi printers can be set up and used any where. Unlike normal printers, Wi-Fi printers do not require any wires or cables and setting them up would be simple. Another added advantage of Wi-Fi printers is that users can move the printer even when it is connected to a system and place it confidently. When using Wi-Fi printers, users are advised to place the printer near the connected system so that even if some issues such as paper jamming comes up, users would be able to hear the warning messages or take adequate steps to solve the issue before printer gets damaged. Some of the common Wi-Fi printers include Brother HL-2170W, HP DeskJet D5568 Wireless printer, HP OfficeJet Pro 8000 Wi-Fi Printer, Lexmark Z1420 Wi-Fi Enabled Inkjet Printer, Samsung Color Wi-Fi Laser Printer- CLP-325W etc.

- Resolve system errors
When installing Wi-Fi printers, users are advised to ensure compatibility between the router, printer and the Operating System. Some printers are known to have compatibility issues with some operating systems. Installing an incompatible Wi-Fi printer to your PC would make it highly unstable and bring about problems such as blue screen errors, system restarts when the printer is used.
Like all other computer hardware, even Wi-Fi printer connected to your system requires drivers to function. Drivers are the communicating link between the printer and the Operating System on the computer and problems with the drivers would directly affect the functioning of the printer. Users must check the compatibility, authenticity and type specification of the printer drivers before installation as installation of incorrect drivers would cause malfunction of the printer.
When installing Wi-Fi printers on the system users are advised to make sure that the system does not have any errors or problems at the time of installation. Users must also ensure that the system does not have any malware such as spyware that would send out information from the system with the Wi-Fi network.
