First of all, i apologize if this has been posted OR i have posted this in the wrong section.

I was wondering if you could actually print something without connecting USBs/cables from laptop to printer.

IF YES, how so? Do i need any kind of wireless cards or whatever?

Thanks in advance!

The answer to this will depend on your hardware, printer, router etc.

Some printer now have a wireless feature built into them, some routers can act as a print server. I have managed to do it three ways, first way was a old computer acting as a print server, veryoe just clicked print then out it popped.

I am now running my multifunction prnt through a secured wireless network with a small box which is now the print server.

If you can give me more info on your printer and anything you already have set up, then i mite be able to help ou out!

Thanks

I haven't set up anything at all, i was wondering if it's possible.

I have an HP Photosmart 4180C (C4180?). I do have WiFi at my apartment and it is secured with a password.

you would definatly need a router, belkin or linsys are very good routers. and a small print server, http://www.scan.co.u...roductID=398859 it has worked wonders for me, alittle bit of a pain to set up but was ok once sorted!

will you be using the wireless to share internet, there is another option if this is not the case!
