    RE: Setting up a wireless printer

    i forgot to mention that i can connect to the internet via a D-Link wireless
    G broadband router, and the printer is a HP Photosmart 7960. iam not sure if
    this information is necessary but its there if needed.

    Set the printer as shared on the computer it is attached to.
    when you go to add a printer in Vista, it should show up in Network Pronters

    Re: Setting up a wireless printer

    I purchased a wireless print server (Netgear) on Ebay it was refurbished.
    The only problem I'm having is it occasionally prints half a page but
    corrects itself. I'm going to pick up a Netgear wireless router to see if
    it helps (currently using Ativa). I disabled bi-directional printing and
    start printing after last job is spooled which seemed to help.

    Re: Setting up a wireless printer

    Hi Josh

    I was thinking about getting one of those as well for a secondary printer of
    mine - glad to hear they work. Any idea if an all-in-one type printer will
    work with a wireless adaptor? I mean for scanning?

    Follow this to share the printer on the XP computer. You shouldn't have to
    mess with the Additional Drivers part...
