I do not as yet have any wireless hardware, nor do we currently have a printer.
For info my current set up is:
-Main phone line in opposite corner
-Cat 5 cable stuff trailing around the room
-Laptop (wireless capable)
I want to have a wireless network with printing capability. I would like:
-Home PC - wireless capable
-Wireless ADSL modem/firewall in opposite corner to PC (next to phone line)
-Standard Printer - made wireless capable by plugging into a wireless usb stick
.=2E.with the ability to print from both pcs, without one having to be on for the other to work.or vice versa.
Question: can I buy a
-Standard ADSL modem/firewall/print server,
-Wireless PC Card or Wireless USB stick for my Home PC
-Wireless USB stick to plug into my non wireless-capable printer
I am trying to avoid paying for an expensive wireless capable printer (I'd rather buy a cheaper standard printer and invest the money in wireless network).
Advice on the best (and cheapest!) way to do this whilst avoiding wires trailing around the house, or having printer in the lounge, would be greatly appreciated.
I hoped I could do it for around =A3150: =A3100 for a good Canon printer. =A350 for a wireless starter package incl Card and USB stick.
Am I barking up the wrong tree? WHat is the best way to set up what I want?
Thanks in advance
