Creating Wireless Network With Macs and Printer

Recommended Posts



I helping a friend set up his wireless network. He has an G5 iMac, Rev 2, 2.0 Ghz , 20" with airport extreme installed. He streams his broadband connection through a Netgear DG834G basestation. He also has a HP Photosmart 2710 wireless all-in-one printer. This printer sets up its own wireless network (it shows up as a computer to computer network in the airport menu) To print a document, he has to disconnect from the broadband network and connect to the printer network, print and then reconnect to the broadband network. This doesn't take very long, but is very irritating when surfing the web and printing things.


Is it possible to connect the wireless printer to the wireless network, so there will be no need to disconnect and reconnect every time when you want to print?


The printer is on another floor than the base station, so it is not possible to connect it directly to an ethernet port. Neither is it possible to connect it the iMac as it is on the other side of the room.


Any help would be much appreciated

Sorted it now, don't worry.


Was some random setting on the actual printer. If you have the same problem contact me.
