I just want to be able to print from my laptop to 1 or, if possible, 2 printers
from anywhere in the house. I don't want, and refuse to have, wireless internet.
I have a Sony Vaio VGN-FS740 running Win XP Pro
says with "integrated Wireless LAN - Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG Network Connection (802.11b/g)"
Internet access is by wired cable.
I have no idea if that is meaningful, but it sounded useful.
I have also connected wirelessly thru it when on the road.
I assume I'll need something called a 'wireless print server'.
What I am unclear about is - does that communicate directly with my computer
or does it only communicate with a wireless router? (Wireless internet thingie).
Can I plug 2 printers into the wireless print server?
It then transmits its wireless vibrations thru the air to my computer where
I can choose which printer to use just as I would if it were wired? Yes/No, sort of?
I'm actually fairly computer literate, and pretty wizz bang at software, I just suck at hardware!
Any guidance, advice and recommendations would be most welcome.
