Connecting A Printer To The Network Using A Switch And A Wireless AP. Anyone Done It?
I had the idea to put a printer on the top of each laptop trolley so that we can remove printers from classrooms as they only print when they use the laptops. The trolley we have has a built in 5 port switch and a wireless AP. We dont use it as we have Wireless AP's in the roofs of each room so i want to connect a printer to the network using the switch and AP in the trolley. I can get the AP connected to the network, ping it etc and working as a client but when i configure the printer i cant ping it at all
I've almost given up with it but wondered if anyone had managed to do this before and could maybe help me with where i am going wrong?
