very general.

If you have the room, you would need:

AC converter
Wireless router
Maybe a wireless print server

The wireless router would allow you to connect to the print server. The print server would then allow you to send the commands to the printer. The printer would then print your document.

***You would have to install the printer's drivers into the laptop. I use a wireless router with three laptops to connect to internet. I also have all three setup to a wireless print server, drivers installed in all three.

I have never done this, but I think you can use the wireless router to connect with the printer and then there wouldn't be a need for a print server.

Hope this helps.

so basicly u would just need a router to connect. then something to plug the printer into(ac adapter). and install the drivers. what exactly is a print server? is that so a printer can connect to the laptop?
