Wireless Printing

Ask IT: Question & Answer Forum:


I’m  a freshman who just moved into Alumni Hall in 2F. I have a wireless enabled printer which I’d like to share with my 3 roommates via the FIT dorm network. As a part of setting up the printer,  I tried to setup the Wi-Fi connection – it found the network and said that it was successfully configured but when we try to use the printer on our PCs it cannot find it – it is not visible as a selection. The printer was installed on the PC and works if hard wired via a UBS cable. Are we able to add a printer to the network for sharing purposes? The computers are Mac laptops and the printer is an Epson archival 730.

Hi Kelly,

Unfortunately we do not allow wireless printing in our infrastructure. The printer has to be hardwired to a computer in order to use it for printing.
