WIRELESS PRINTER CONNECTION WARREN 2 ABSTRACT A printer is a necessary piece of equipment in the Real Estate field. We print all throughout the day, from listings to contracts and lots of legal forms. In our office we are very much in need of a wireless printer and a wireless connection to the internet as well. A wireless printer would allow for all employees to take advantage of printing. And, by installing the wireless router, we will have the benefit of wireless internet access. When you think of a small business, what do you think of? Is that business running as efficiently as possible in order to have the highest profit margin? Right now, our business is not running as efficiently as is could and there is one simple fix that we need to implement. All employees need the ability to print from their laptops current location in the office. We currently have two desktop computers with the ability to print and two laptops (used often) that do not have the ability to print from their location. The laptops are often moved from office to office, front desk and to the conference room. No matter their location, they will be able to print. With a printer that has the ability to print wirelessly, we will become a more efficient office. DESCRIPTION & GOAL For this project we will be installing a new wireless router. This will allow the office laptops to connect to the printer wirelessly instead of using a wired connection. The office space is only about 750 square feet, so a wireless connection to the printer should not have any issues with range. Once the wireless router is connected, we will use an Ethernet cable to connect the printer to the wireless router. This will allow for all computers with wireless capabilities to be able to access the printer. Other steps will be taken (explained in detail later) to complete the setup, including software installation and security encryption. The goal is to have this project completed in just a few hours and done as soon as the project has been approved.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
