Connecting a wireless printer can be a bit more challenging that one that comes with a cable, especially if it's not an area you're comfortable with.


Most leading manufacturers often have a setup guide to follow or an automatic wizard that takes you through the process. However, these can sometimes fail or have errors so it's best to know what to do just in case. Most wireless printers need to connect to your network. When you connect the printer to a laptop or computer, drivers should automatically start to install. Once this is done, the setting up process is fairly easy, as your computer will already be connected to the network but you need to bridge the gap between printer and the network.


A setup wizard will usually ask you for the network SSID but there will sometimes be a separate menu with various options, while some machines do all the work for you. Check your printer's setup guides to see which to do or go to the manufacturer's website if you have lost the original papers. When you have entered the information, your printer should establish the connection.
