I have a wireless broadband modem installed which I just use for internet connection with my laptop. I'd like to set up a wireless printer but the printer I have in mind doesn't seem to be compatible with any of the wireless print servers. Can I connect wirelessly to a printer with an ethernet connection via a wireless ethernet bridge and print from my laptop without any other hardware?

Thanks & Regards, Jerry

Okay I've read this 5 times and keep getting more confused (it's me not you :) ). Anyway, are you asking if you can jack your PC in or jack the Printer in to a wireless access point that has a switch on it?

If your printer has an ethernet jack, then just plug that into your switch on your wireless router/bridge and YES you can print wirelessly to that wire(d) printer from your PC.

Sorry for confusing the issue. I guess what I should have asked is can I communicate to a printer via a wireless ethernet bridge (connected to the printer via an ethernet jack) from my wireless enabled laptop or do I need a "wireless access point"? (whatever that is??)

Thanks and regards, Jerry.

Hey no problem jerry. I was probably a couple beers in when I responded (never type under the influence :) ) and YES you can communicate/print. You're still on the same LAN even though you're physically jacked in on one end and wireless connected at the other.
