Wireless printers have more benefits compared to traditional
cable-connected printers. With a traditional printer, if you are on
your laptop computer in one room and need to print a document out,
usually you would have to unplug from the outlet, walk to the printer,
rearrange the desk in order to make room for the laptop, and finally
connect the usb printer cable to the laptop. Whew! What an
inconvenience just to print out a single document. With a wireless
printer, you can print your document with ease without leaving your
seat. Of course there are other advantages to a wireless printer.
Wireless printers can be placed in their own space away from the other
office machines which reduces a multitude of long cables that can be
unsightly, unruly, and hazardous. If the wireless printer is being
shared by several people, a centralized location can ease accessibility
and reduce noise in work spaces.
There are several factors to consider before purchasing a wireless printer. The type of router used to connect all the elements of a wireless local-area network (WLAN) is a very important component to think about in order to begin using a wireless printer. Ensure a well secured wireless local-area network (WLAN) with strong encryption is set up otherwise the printer can compromise the network's security. A wireless printer that supports Wi-Fi protected access (WPA) or WPA2 encryption is recommended for maximum system protection. Also, the standard of the wireless network (802.11 a,b,g,or n) chosen can affect interference levels from other electronic devices such as cordless devices, microwave ovens, and Bluetooth devices. In addition, the network standards can affect quality of performance and distance specifications.
Once the WLAN is setup and the printer drivers are installed, all the conveniences of a wireless printer will be revealed!
