I seriously need to network my printers – I am hardly ever downstairs anymore where the printer sits as wi-fi has made me free of wires! Laptop on the couch is usually far more entertaining that being downstairs.
Printing without wires, Part III. I must be losing my touch. I got our LaserJet 2100M working with our new SMC Barricade router after entirely too much time spent working on the problem. Why wasnât it working? I had configured the SMC for MAC authentication, on top of the other built-in protections, and hadnât input the MAC address for the LaserJetâs print server. I figured that since I was connecting the LaserJet via a wired connection it wouldnât matter, but apparently the SMCâs MAC authentication is good for both wired and wireless clients.
No matter. Itâs working, and now we have both our printers accessible via wireless. Iâm going to bed to nurse this cold. [jarretthousenorth News]
