If you want wireless connectivity will cost a bit more than the $30 a basic USB to ethernet print server would cost. Hook up the printer to the device, it will get an IP from your Router. Either look in the Router status to see what IP it gave, or print a test page from the print server to get the IP. Then do this: http://support.cc.gatech.edu/support-tools/howto/direct...
I used thison my Netgear rooter:- " http://192.168.0.1/setup.cgi?next_file=start.htm " & clicked on "attached devises" & it showed this :-
# IP Address Device Name MAC Address

2 192.168.0.4 NICKMAXTOR 00:1F:C6:1C:9E:AC

1. I have a cable, one end is USB male socket & the other end a small squarish male printer socket.
Printers & Faxes show the Canon L-360 & the HP all in one.
With this cable connecting the Canon to the Netbook, & with the Canon as default printer, when I click print in a Word document it does not print.
This printer works fine via my PC.
Please note this Canon printer has no Ethernet socket on it.
2. My HP printer has Ethernet socket & I found a networking cable with both ends a ethernet plug & connected the HP printer to the Netgear (whis is wired & wireless) rooter.
Using my PC this time, I tried to print wirelesly with no success but, when I connect the printer to the PC with the USB cable it prints OK.
Can I make it print without the cable via my home network, without bying other equipment?
