Hello, and thank you for considering my inquiry.
Forgive me upfront for my (very) limited technological expertise, but I am trying to figure out the most cost efficient way to enable my printer to print wirelessly. I have a Cannon MF4350. I am attempting to figure out whether I need new equipment, or if I can do this with equipment I already own.
I have an Airport Express, which I was able to get to work for this purpose previously, but it has been awhile since I used it for this purpose, and am now having difficulty getting this to work (the Airport Express continues to blink orange/amber and i cannot manage to get the base recognized by either my Mac or PC).
After looking into other options and learning a bit about wireless print servers, although I am willing to buy new equipment if need be, I am now also questioning if the Cisco Valet Router that I also have could perhaps function to enable my printer to print wirelessly. I have been experimenting with different configurations of the Airport Express and Cisco Router, but I am not having any success. I have been going in circles for hours between experimenting with these tools and reading info online, with no success, and so am hoping that someone who is smarter about such issues might be able to enlighten me on my best options.
I would also be interested in recommendations for a wireless print server if need be, although I would prefer to save the money if it seems possible to create a successful setup with the equipment that I have. The laptop I primarily use operates on Windows 7. I would be happy to provide any further information if it would help.
Thank you for reading through and considering my inquiry.
