 How to Make Your Wired Printer Wireless

Your laptop and desktop computers are connected over a Wi-Fi network but your uses physical USB cable to connect your wired printer to your network.

Turn any Wired Printer into a Wireless Network Printer

Modern printers are network enabled so you can just attach them to your home network using the Ethernet port (or over Wi-Fi) and print from any other computer in the home network. However, if you are using an old USB based printer, you can use a wireless print server to turn that wired printer into a wireless one.


 

Wireless print servers are small network devices that have a USB port. You just have to connect the printer to this wireless print server using a regular USB cable and the printer will then become available to all other computers in your wireless network.

Some network routers come with USB ports build-in allowing you to connect your printer directy in to your wireless network. Today, most multifunction printers include wireless capabilities and can therefore connect directly to your wireless network without any additional hardware.
