Wirelessness


[link to this post]
 
Hello All

I've got a Livebox and a Brightbox. Using the Livebox for normal wireless internet connection to PC, not using Brightbox at all. As I'm not using the Brightbox, I was wondering if I could get it to act in any way like a print server, ie to enable me to have my printer wireless and in another room away from the Livebox and PC.

The Bright Box router will only work as a wireless access point if wired with Ethernet cable to your Livebox router.
You could use a wireless access point as below connected to your printer or use two Devolo powerline adapters.

Thanks, lots of options there, I'm sure I'll work it out somehow.
