How to Set Up a Wireless Printer Connection
Wireless printing can be extremely useful. Printers that can be networked come
with either a network adapter (which can be simply directly plugged into a
wireless router), or a wireless adapter (in which case a router is not essential if
you are prepared to use ad-hoc mode). Here's how to do it.
Make sure your printer has wireless network adapters or a wireless router.
Power on the printer and wireless router.
Configure the printer to connect the wireless router.
Enable the DHCP option on the printer. Obtain the IP address automatically.
Configure the DHCP server of wireless router. Again, assign the IP address automatically.
Verify connectivity. Try doing some test prints. If it doesn't work, check the IP addresses.
Assign the printer to a wireless network. Go to “Start” and click on “Devices and Printers.”
Click on “Add a printer”.
Click on "Add a network, wireless or Bluetooth printer."
Select the wireless printer from the list. Click “Next."
Allow Windows to successfully connect the printer. Again, click “Next.”
Click "Finish" to complete the process. If you have multiple printers on your network, set
this one as the default. Verify the connection by clicking "Print a test page."
