When the time comes to choose a new printer you may find yourself swamped with options. One of the newest types of printer on the scene is the wireless printer. But you might be asking yourself, how exactly can a printer produce documents without cables?
The process is remarkably simple! Wireless printers work in the same way as Wi-Fi internet. The message is passed between the computer or source device to the printer through transmitted signals. This of course means you could encounter some of the same issues you have with your Wi-Fi at home or in your workplace, which includes going out of range and service outages. However, this should certainly not put you off considering purchasing a wireless printer.
One of the main benefits to having a wireless printer is not having cables trailing across your floor space. The more cables you have clogging up your office, the more potential hazards there will be. Not only can people trip and hurt themselves, the cables can also become damaged and rendered unusable over time.
Wireless printers are much the same as a wired printer. There only real difference apart from their cost is the lack or trailing cables. Most wireless models available are standard colour or mono laser printers, although multifunction variants are becoming more popular.
Your computer will need to connect to the printer remotely and will require the downloaded driver that you use for standard printer models. Once the connection is made the computer will be able to send documents remotely to the printer where the documents are completed.
There will be no loss of quality in the print out and the initial installation is no more difficult than a standard wired printer. The majority of wireless printers are laser printers which use a toner cartridge filled with powdered toner.
In short, a wireless printer works in a very similar fashion to a cabled printer, only using a Wi-Fi internet signal to communicate between computer and printer.
