Hi all

Can the HP4250tn work wirelessly? If so, does anyone know how to do it.

Thanks

Yes, it can be connected to your existing Wireless broadband router via a Wireless Bridge or a set of Homeplugs (Homeplugs are easiest to setup).

Nice one. Sorry to sound really thick (I am when it comes to this stuff) but am I right in thinking you plug the new router in the back of the printer, it connects to the broadband router and then you set up the wireless thingy through the printer settings on the computer?

What computer/broadband router make/model do you have?

You can buy print servers , a little box with an arial that plugs into your printer using a USB cable or a centronics one that will use an existing network cable from the wireless router for the older printer . I havn't had much success with the one I bought , keeps losing it's ip address .

Netgear Wireless Router?

Keep it simple. Buy a set of Homeplugs. May be have a look in the For Sale section for a 2nd hand set.

One Homeplug adapter will plug into your printer's network port and the other into the Netgear router (they will use the house's electrical wiring to communicate with one another).

Any computer connected to the Netgear router (wired or wireless) can now print (each computer needs to have the printer added to it's list of usable printers obviously).
