A printer for multiple computers and no cable clutter: This works best via WLAN. A small wireless network is set up quickly and wireless printer already exists for less than 70 euros. But even without wireless printer is the wireless printing in the home network possible. We reveal what you need and how to set up your home network to print wirelessly.
What you need to print via wireless
The requirements for a wireless network have already been met in most households with Internet access. A desktop PC with wireless antenna and a wireless router include already standard. Notebooks and netbooks are anyway equipped for wireless data exchange. What is missing is a wireless-capable printer or multifunction device. When buying you should look on it, that the device has a WiFi interface.
The Berlin manufacturer AVM has presented at the CeBIT computer fair, what the new router generation can. Even manufacturers such as Netgear and Asus promises new techniques the transmission rates of the previously fastest wireless routers to triple. However, the new technique has a large hook.
The Gigabit WLAN comes
However, most router manufacturers opt for a variant / s transmits at 5 GHz on four streams with up to 1733 Mbit. Four other data streams transmitted data in the 2.4 GHz band with maximum transfer rates of 800 MHz. In practice, however, only half of the gross values is usually achieved. Nevertheless, transmission speeds of one gigabit is not unrealistic. Compared to a router with the still widespread standard 802.11n (450 Mbit / s) are the 125 instead of 56 megabytes per second flow over the WLAN.
