Ask Max: How can I use my non-wifi printer on my wireless network?

Asked on 09/03/2009:

I know there are new printers that have Wi-Fi capability, but I would like to use my existing printer on a wireless network. Is there a way to connect the printer directly to a wireless router so the printer is available to all users on the network? Any solution would probably also have to work with WinXP and MacOS X.4 or .5




I use the Apple Airport base stations for this. They share a printer with Macs and PCs, but you need to install Bonjour on the Windows system.

Look at the Airport express if you just have wireless computers in the house. If some computers have to have an Ethernet connection, the AirPort Extreme is the one you want.
