Hello..everyone. I am a new XP user and I am trying to hook up my Lexmark Z22 to my Linksys Etherfast Cable/DSL Router for the express purpose of making my printer a network device. Is this possible? Or must i buy a "print server-hardware"?
You can only connect your printer straight to the router if it is a network-printer. If it is not a network-printer you will have to connect the printer to a computer on the network and then share the printer. This way every1 on the network can use the printer as long as the computer which has the printer attached is on.
If you don't want to leave a computer on then you will have to buy a new one. I'm not sure but there are special printer-routers so that you can share your printer without leaving a computer on. So my advice is to do some investigation and ask around shops if they know a good solution. I have my printer shared with a computer always on, so I don't know much about this subject.
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
