This is the future, now. You no longer have to connect your printer to a desktop or laptop in order to print your papers and photographs. OMG, isn’t this incredible and mind-blowing? Take our advice and let us lead the way. All the information you need to know about how to connect wireless printer to laptop is contained in this article. So, fasten your seat belts and prepare to have your world turned upside down.
Using Wi-Fi or Bluetooth, a wireless printer connects to your laptop via a technology called Bluetooth, which requires devices to be in close proximity to each other (available to devices within 50 to 100 feet or so).
Wireless printing has various advantages that may not be immediately apparent.
Remove the cords from the equation and you’ll never have to deal with cable clutter again.
When it comes to new technology like Wi-Fi printing, many consumers are put off by the difficulty of getting it up. Setup of a wireless printer, which is covered in further detail later, is relatively simple.
Keep the following in mind when connecting your laptop to a wireless printer:
Bluetooth and Wi-Fi are both short-range wireless connections (meaning you have to be near the printer to connect to it).
1. To use a Bluetooth-based wireless printer, you may need to connect a Bluetooth transmitter to a USB port on your laptop. This transmitter, approximately the size of a stick of gum, sends a signal to the printer. If you have a laptop with Wi-Fi, you can skip this step.
2. Follow the steps given in the prior assignment to configure the printer in Windows Control Panel and install any required drivers. Select Add a Bluetooth, wireless, or network printer in the first dialogue box that appears, and then follow the on-screen instructions to complete the operation.
3. The Add a Printer wizard guides you through the process of connect wireless printer to laptop; a passcode (given with your printer) may be required for this.
4. Once you’ve installed the printer, you should be able to print just like you would with any other type of printer, but without the hassle of extra wires cluttering your desk.
Your printer should be linked to your home’s Wi-Fi network. Each printer mechanism is unique for doing this.
5. If you’re using Ethernet, connect the printer’s Ethernet connector to an open port on your router or network switch. This is frequently all that is required for an Ethernet printer.
To establish a wireless network connection with a wireless printer, use the printer’s screen. If your wireless SSID (network name) is secured, you must pick it and provide the password. The procedure will differ slightly depending on the type of printer you have.
If you’re unsure about how to connect your printer (either by Wi-Fi or Ethernet), see the handbook. The procedure for connecting your printer to another computer and sharing it will be necessary if you do not have a home network.
This is how one can easily impress others by printing their work without any printer at home.
