Once upon a time, in­stalling a printer in­volved plug­ging it into your PC, in­stalling the driv­ers, print­ing a test page and rid­ing off into the sun­set, print­outs in hand. If you wanted to give other com­put­ers in your house­hold ac­cess to the printer, you shared it through your main PC.

How­ever, the rise of af­ford­able net­work print­ers – par­tic­u­larly wire­less ones – means every­one can ac­cess your printer any­time from any­where in your home. In the­ory. In prac­tice, judg­ing by the num­ber of emails we’ve re­ceived over the years, it can often be a con­fus­ing process.

Thank­fully, you can dis­til the process down to just a few straight­for­ward steps, which should work for the vast ma­jor­ity of wire­less (and Eth­er­net) print­ers out there. Read on to find out how to turn a frus­trat­ing set-up process into some­thing more sim­ple.

Nick’s best tip! You only need to con­nect your printer to the net­work once – then in­stall the driv­ers on each PC in your home.
