Network Wireless Printer

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?YmlsbHkgYm9i?=, Sep 12, 2006.

  1. Hello all,

    I have a Linksys WRT54G wireless router connected to a cable modem in my
    living room. An Xbox and Vonage adapter are connnected to the router via
    ethernet cable.

    In bedroom #1 is a PC (Win XP) connected to the router via AT&T wireless
    adapter. In bedroom #2 is a laptop (Win XP Pro) connected to the router via
    built in wireless card. Also, in bedroom #2 is a Brother MFC-3820cn printer.
    It is not hooked up at this time and has never been installed as a printer
    on either machine.

    I want the printer to be a stand alone device on the network. ( Not hard
    wired to a computer). The printer has an ethernet port that is available to
    use. I also have a spare Linksys wireless router (WRT54G) that I am not
    currently using. And a Linksys WUSB11 that is available to use. The WUSB11
    has a USB connection.

    What is the easiest/most cost-effective way for the both computers to share
    this printer?

    Thanks
    Robin

    If the printer has built-in ethernet, just connect it to the router.
    Refer to the printer's manual for network setup. It will tell you how
    to assign a static IP and whether you need to run the installation on
    each client computer or not.
