Wireless router Config

By seabird23 ·
I have a 3Com wireless router with my main computer hard wired, and a laptop on the wireless connection but I have no idea how to configure my printer on the network to get access to the laptop. I presume that I have to bridge the connections but cannot find out how to do it. can anyone help please.

Adding printer from laptop

by kutscera In reply to Wireless router Config

Is your printer also wired to your router or is it installed locally on your main computer. If it is wired to your router you will have to find out its IP address. You can usually do this by printing out the configuration page. With this information you can now add the printer to your laptop as a local printer using a typical TCP/IP port. When prompted for the port name enter the IP address that you acquired from the config. page. If the printer is installed locally, you will have to enabe printer sharing and then add it to the laptop as a network printer.
