My sister inlaw wants to be able to print from her laptop wirelessly. She doesn't want to get a Cable or DSL High Speed Internet Connection but keep her dial up.

I have a NETGEAR FM114P Cable/DSL Wireless access point and a Netgear 802.11b Wireless Network Adapter # MA521NA.

Can these be used to create a wireless connection for a Print Server without an internet connection?

If yes, anything special I need to know?

Hi Bill,

To answer your question, yes you can quite easily do that. The printer should be on your Network, and there's really no need for it to interact with the Internet at all, except to possibly get driver updates.

anything special I need to know?

That depends.. Did your Printer come with a Manual? :whistling: If so, this really should be a straight-forward process, and your sister-in-law should be printing wirelessly in no time.
