Please approach my question with the following in mind:
1. I don't want to move the printer
2. I don't want to move the router.
I'm a student. My computer and wireless router are in my room, and the printer is far away on the other side of the house (it's a duplex).
The printer has wifi, ethernet, and USB.
I need a way to painlessly print documents. Before, I had been using my mom's laptop (which itself needs to stay plugged in) and a USB stick, which is getting too convoluted and frustrating.
I tried wifi, but it always goes offline.
What is a simple, cheap solution so I can print things like word documents, pdfs, etc? Would a print server help amplify the connection rather than connecting to the printer wirelessly itself? Is there some kind of device I can purchase with USB ports that doesn't require me to buy an entire dedicated laptop for the printer?
I'm at my wit's end. Please help
