Hello Thelastleap,

A wireless router would work if the desktop has a wireless card. How much would you be willing to spend on a wireless router?
Regards,

Alan.

You could get a small switch, such as the Netgear GS105, they are quite cheap, which would mean that you could both plug in at the same time.

I bought a brother 2170W printer and it allows wireless printing. however, in order to wirelessly print, you have to be connected to it's own wirless peer to peer connection. It makes me have to disconnect from my internet and connect to it's network then print then reconnect, I'm basically looking for a solution on how to stay connected to the internet.

If you open Microsoft word or other application and select print, you should be able to select a printer. Does the wireless printer appear in the list?
Regards,

Alan.
