Wireless Printing ?

2008-02-03, 3:44 AM
I have an X60 Tablet and want to print wirelessly. Does anyone know if I just need to buy an adapter for any printer or whether I need to buy a wireless one?

You have a few options here.
This yoke lets you print wirelessly from 1 PC/laptop to 1 printer.
Some wireless routers have also a printerport (Parallel or USB) built in.
You can get wireless print servers.
And you can also connect a separate printserver to your wireless router, which is what I did.
My Trendnet TE100-P21 allows for 1 parallel and 2 USB printers.

You can also network your laptop, with your desktop, and set your desktop to share its printing service. You can than network to your printer, and print. This is what I do untill I can purchase a wireless adapter as stated above.
 
The only downfall is that the desktop has to be on to access your printer.

you can use a wireless print server on your wireless network.
I use the D-Link DPR-1260
 
I had some problems with wireless scanning (could not recognize the scanner... was suddenly working 5 minutes later...) but wireless printing has been flawless from day 1!!
Highly recommended!

If you choose to go for a wireless printer don't go for the expensive ones because not all time what's expensive it's better. Here's a must read article www.printon3d.com/best-wireless-printer/ about how to find the best wireless printer.

Hope that helps.

Good luck.
