wireless print server recommendation - Canon LBP6670dn laser

I want to set up a Canon LBP6670dn laser printer with a wireless connection.  I've had this printer for several years and have not used it.  When I purchased it, there was a 'method' of hooking it up to my network that never really worked.

 

Several years later, I'm looking for recommendations for a wireless print server or other method that would do this connectivity for me.

 

Thanks

Greetings,

You have a printer and you like it, I understand.

 

Print server?  Not a good idea.

 

The only thing using one will give you is a headache.

 

The best thing you can do.  Buy a true network capable printer.  Life is too short.  Having to fiddle or constantly mess with a print server is not worth the time.  They are unreliable (all of them). 

 

I promise you this is sound advice.

Hate to hear about the print server issues ... thought I'd found a solution.  Obviously I know nothing about print servers.

 

My other option (I think?), if I choose to keep trying to use this printer, is to simply move the dang printer close to my router and use a print cable connection.

 

Thank you for your input Rick

Hi Steelart99.

 

By connecting the printer to the wireless router, you will still be able to print from your wireless laptop, as long as it is connected to the same network as the printer.

 

If you are interested in a true wireless networking printer, please click the link below for our available LBP printer options:
