    I need to hook a printer up to my wireless network so I can print wirelessly. I'm too lazy for trial and error so does anyone know how I would go about doing this?

    thanks in advance

    give us some details and we will tell you how.

    What wireless router? Or are you hooking it up to a desktop and want to print off the laptop through the desktop?

    ok, I have a pc downstairs and theres a linksys wireless router hooked up to it and the printer is also hooked up to the pc at the moment. I want to be able to hook the printer up to my router so I can print from the pc and wirelessly print from my mac. Any ideas? I am getting a airport express but it's going to be used for my 360 and stereo upstairs so I want to use the router I have for the printer

    you have to have a wireless router that is also a print server. im not sure if they sell them, but they also might have wireless print server cards that can be used instead of the router.
