For most first timers to setting up wireless printers, problems may arise during the installation process. But the truth is that this task is just easy. There are only 4 steps you will need along the way.
1. The wireless network card. This is usually found in your PC. If it doesn’t have one, you can buy the card from computer shops. Install it to prepare for the entire process.
2. Buy a router too. Wireless printer setups will not be possible without a router on hand. Make sure that both the wireless network and router are 802.11 compliant.
3. Be ready to set-up your router. The router basically needs to be installed using your printer. Some routers come with CD’s that you can use in the process. Some routers may also require setting-up of passwords so that access will only be limited to those who are allowed to make use of the printer.
4. You can now set up your wireless printers but make sure the router gets recognized by your OS. Use the control panel of your computer then click over the “printers” bar. This will lead you to the “printers” window. Now you may add the printer. A list of printer types will appear so choose the one you want to add. Your OS will search for the printer model then it will automatically install the driver software.
With all the steps in installing your wireless printers, you will think that the process is not that hard after all. It just requires some simple following of instructions. Remember that some dialogue boxes will appear during the set-up. You need to read what it says before you do some clicking of the mouse.
