Canon ip5200 Printer and WiFi

  tooter 10:10 29 Jul 08

I have a Canon ip5200 printer (about 4 years old), which I think is unable to receive WiFi. I am thinking of purchasing a new laptop for which I will need a WiFi printer. The ip5200 is an excellent printer and is working perfectly and I want to keep it if possible.
Is it possible to convert it to WiFi to use it with the laptop with WiFi and also leave hardwired to my desktop computer? Thanks for your help.

You can get a Printer Server. click here

how they vary in price click here

With a Server you only need the server and printer switched on, if Networking one you would need to leave the Computer switched on what the Printer was connected to

If you think the "Canon ip5200 is an excellent printer"why not try the Canon Pixma iP5200R I'm presuming they are still on sale.
