Wifi Printers Explained

In basic terms a wifi printer is just like a regular printer but rather than needing a USB cable it works wirelessly. This makes them ideal for situations were you would like to share a printer between a number of computers around your home. It becomes even more useful if you have a laptop because you aren’t always going to be using it in the same place. This means you would ordinarily have to plug your laptop into your printer every time you wanted to use it. This isn’t the case with a Wifi printer, with a wifi printer you can print from anywhere in your home and from as far away as you can receive the signal from your wireless router.

Most wifi printers work by connecting to your existing wifi network. If you use a laptop without a cable then you will already have a wifi network set-up. Some wifi printers work by creating a direct connection between the computer and the printer, these don’t offer as much flexibility though. It is usually a very easy task to configure you wireless printer. With most printers you first have to connect it to your computer with a USB cable. This is just for the configuration stage though, you will soon be printing without wires. You are often guided through the configuration process by the means of a wizard. You have to tell the printer your Wifi security key and of course you also have to select your own wireless network for it to connect to.

Benefits of WiFi Printers

A wireless printer is very easy to share between multiple computers. It doesn’t need wires so you can set it up and connect it to your wireless network. At this point you can then access the printer from any computer connected to the network. Sometimes you will need special software to convince your computer it is a local printer. This depends on manufacturer though and it is often just a case of installing the driver and entering the IP address of the printer. Some models are only able to connect to on computer at a time, this is something to look out for but isn’t a problem with most newer wifi printers.

The most obvious benefit of a printer without wires (well just a power cable) is the lack of wires itself! That may sound like it doesn’t make sense but just think about when and where you do your printing. If you have a laptop you aren’t always in the same location when you decide you need to print something, you could be in your home office, in your living room or even out in the garden. With a traditional printer you would need to dig out the USB cable and go and stand near the printer while you did your printing. With a wireless printer you can send as many documents as you like from wherever you are (as long as you are still in range of the wireless network) and then go and collect them from the printer whenever you are ready.

A wireless printer also offers more flexibility in terms of location, all it needs is a space big enough to fit it in and a power socket. Most normal printers really have to be on a desk so you can sit down and have somewhere to put your laptop or desktop computer while you do your printing. So if you are short on space a wireless printer would be ideal as you can put it just about anywhere.

Common Problems with Wi-Fi Printers

The most likely reason you may have a problem when you first buy a wireless printer is that you can’t get it to connect to you wireless network. This is usually a very straightforward process but if for some reason it doesn’t work as intended then it can be a little tricky to diagnose. The most common issue is that you have entered the wrong wireless security key. This will have been configured when you first got your wireless router. If you were lucky it may have come pre-configured, if this is the case then you may find the key printed on the bottom of the router. So if you have problems make sure you are entering the correct key.

A less common but still possible problem can be caused by selecting the wrong wireless network completely. When you are setting up the wireless printer you will be asked to pick a Wi-Fi network to connect to, if you are lucky yours will be the only one listed, however if you have lots of neighbours with their own wireless network they may appear in the list too. Make sure you have picked the correct one.

Something to think about when buying a Wi-Fi printer is to make sure it is able to connect to the type of wireless network you are running, their are different standards for Wi-Fi and also different security protocols. Don’t worry though if that sounds too complicated, you should find that unless your wireless router is really old it will work with any new Wi-Fi printer.

If all else fails when you are setting up your new printer just pick up the phone. That’s right pick up the phone and call that friend of a friend or distant relative who works in IT. People who work all day with IT love nothing more than spending their free time helping out people they never normally speak to for free. It is just another perk of the job. No, really.
