Methods of connecting a wireless router with a print server
What are the steps to connect a wireless router with a print server?
A print server or a printer server is a device that connects with a printer or several printers to other computers or devices connected on the network. A print server helps to carry out print tasks from various connected computers or other devices and print them from the desired printers connected to the print server. A wireless print server helps to convert a standard USB interface printer to a wireless printer and allow sharing of printers connected to a wireless print server without use of cables. A wireless printer server helps to make your printer accessible on your wireless network, and it is easy for any device connected to your network to make use of a printer. You do not need to get a wireless printer to share over a network or to get one printer for each computer on your network.

- Connect a wireless print server
