What printer is it?
If you cannot afford more network points until you can I would recommend you get a pair of these. I would never make a printer wireless on the network.
Firstly the two office computers have a shared USB printer which is continuelly going offline. Its attached directly to one computer which always works then the other one will work for a few days then go offline. Ive tried everything i can think of but its still happening. Has anyone got any advice with sharing printers like this on a network? Would the best thing be to buy a wireless print server? (No nework connections nearby and cant really afford to get any)
TP Link 54Mbps Pocked Sized Wireless Print Server (TL-WPS510U) - www.misco.co.uk One like that?
Second problem is the printers deployed via group policy. They keep asking for drivers being updated which needs admin rights. I have seen one fix for this but it involved server 2008 R2 and we are running 2003.
Thanks in advance for any replies.
I'd recommend getting a standard wired print server, and either a pair of splitters, or a mini network switch.
I have got an old netgear switch actually. Would the splitters not have any effect on the computers? (sorry ive never used them before)
