Re: switch from USB to Wireless

Hi,

 

Your printer is NOT wireless ready, it only have "1 USB 2.0; 1 Ethernet 10/100Base-T". You can do this using few methods but the cheapest method would be using LAN cable (or CAT5 and above cable) to connect printer to a wireless router (probably you already have it) and you can setup from there. You need driver and application for it ready for this work.

 

(a) Put the printer to your home network

(b) Connect it to your machine(s)

 

Please refer to this book for more info:
