Yup wireless mateaslong as your laptop has wifi/ wireless capability then you just plug printer to wall. You can print from any wifi enabled device ie phone/camera ect aslong as your in range . There is some which you can send pictures and documents from a fone from miles away

The wifi button connects you to the hub/router for the Internet and you do the same with the printer,you can connect loads of stuff,phones games consoles ect and print,share music movies ect...

It all works through the router fella,the printer and laptop you enter the wifi code,you can get Bluetooth ones,the mobile dongles are crap,best I have seen is 3mb,I have 77mb

It's the easy way to do it,think you can still connect your laptop and printer together via a network without a router,need to create a p2p network

all this talk of p2p servers,openzone,cloud,router,and wireless network probably means nowt to you Finn .. Just stick with ya dongle and get a hardwired laptop compatible printer is much less complicated and cheaper too. Smile

Wireless printers aren't that expensive - got a great one from printerland with a 5 year warranty for £99 and it's quite economical on ink too, which aren't an arm and a leg (much cheaper to run than the Kodak one I'd bought which 'claimed' cheap to run .... it wasn't and went through more ink than the Evening Chronicle lol) - but you'd not be able to print off from your garage for example at home tho on any I don't think ... so you'd need a portable printer whichever way you go if you want to print off when you're away from home Very Happy

Finn, if you don't have a wireless router in the same building as the wireless printer then no, you cannot print to it. Having a dongle is not enough, you need a proper connection. If you have a bluetooth or infra red printer with a compatible laptop you can print but the range is rarely any good.

In short, a wireless printer would be no good to you with your present set-up

Tried a few Epson wifi printers and they are complicated to setup and ink isn't good value. I bought a £34 HP wifi printer from Comet and it virtually set itself up and works perfectly. I have replace the ink on it without any problems and it was £14 for black and coloured cartridges Very Happy

peer to peer/ad hoc wireless connection, you dont need a router for this type of setup, but it can be a pain in the arse to setup,not worth the chew

but HP have been known to have a better connectivity than epson and easier to setup, but inks are usually telephone numbers

you just need a wireless access point, as mentioned above hp printers are normally better to setup than epson, epson are well known for loosing ip address, I know am talking bollix, ya dont understand it What a Face
