Samsung® Wireless Printer to Make Printing Easy

SEWA- Samsung Electronics West Africa introduced a new kind of printer to let you access as well as print documents right from a mobile device.

Connect with the printer directly

Primarily the USB version ML-2165W allows printing documents through Samsung’s MobilePrint applications. With Samsung’s one-touch wireless feature, it is possible to set up the device in as less as two minutes through an access point and router. Also, its Wi-Fi Direct feature allows connecting it with Wi-Fi Direct-enabled mobile device with ML-2165W straightaway, eliminating the need for setting up an access point or router.

The ML-2165W also incorporates Samsung’s one-touch ‘Print Screen’ button, enabling printing the content on user’s screen easily and quickly. The most amazing aspect about ML-2165W is that it is compact in design, smaller than usual printers and has the capacity to hold 150 A4 size papers with 20ppm printing speed.

Product Manager, Printing Solutions, SEWA, Bennett Nwogu, said, “The printer lowers Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) of printers, allowing for cost effective printing via Samsung’s Easy Eco Driver and Easy Print Manager.” He said, “With this users can closely monitor their printer usage and save up to 75 per cent on paper usage and 50 per cent on energy.”

How to Set Up Wireless Printing at Home

With the help technology it is very easy to print something by wireless printer at home. Suppose in your home, each room has a computer set then it gets really difficult and costly to provide a printer for each computer. Although a number of people also have a computer system hardwires using a laptop in their home. That’s why no one wants to use USB cables each time to print something. Also, laptops are meant to be portable. So, setting up a wireless printer at home gets very easy, simple, convenient and not costly.

There are several easy ways to set up a wireless printer at home. You can easily do it by yourself. Following are some of its instructions:

Wireless printer:

Nowadays you will find some newer printer models that are designed to be fully network capable. So, it becomes easy for you as some essential network interface hardware is already integrated into the printer. Hence, you can easily configure the printer’s wireless network connection directly from the controls of the device which already has a few models labeled with ‘one touch setup’ features. You can enter a network setup menu smoothly with the help of some advanced printers. In the menu you must find a wizard where you can recognize the existing wireless network connection at your home. After this, you have to connect the printer as the latest node in the network. You just have to access the home network’s SSID and WEP encryption code. Later, when the printer is recognized as the part of the network, you need to install the printer software in a CD-ROM in all the computers in the network’s so that they can all be easily used with the printer.

Wireless print server:

A wireless print server is an external device which is connected to a printer to give it wireless networking capabilities. By a USB cable or parallel cable the printer to print server connection is facilitated which is dependent on the old of printer. A computer must be firstly connected to it via an Ethernal cable for the initial set up of the print server.  You will enter the print server configuration page through the computer and its web browser. Here you have to set print server IP address and SSID. According to the range of home wireless network the IP address should be given and also SSID which is used by wireless router. To recognize the print server this setting will allow the home network.  Then install of its software in each computers in the network.

Shared printer:

If you have an existing wireless network then you can set up wireless printing without a print server because in this system the printer in installed and connected to one of the computers in the wireless home network. For the computer, it will serve as host computer. It is necessary to power up and connection for the host computer. The printer can’t be accessed if the host computer is logged out.

Wireless Printing Through Google Cloud Print

With the launch of iPad, the question of taking a print-out from a wireless device has been raised, once again. Though, we are familiar of taking print-outs by using a notebook, desktop and laptop with the help of drivers and cables. However, in this wireless age of tablets, the need of wires and cables to connect to a peripheral device like printers has vanished.

Google has come up with a solution to this problem, as it has recently announced a new concept named as Cloud Print. The Cloud Print is a part of the Chromium and Chromium OS projects. With the help of Cloud Print applications can print to any printer wirelessly. This means that any application like mobile applications, desktop applications and web applications from devices like BlackBerry, Windows machines, Macs, or even the iPad can print to any printer on a wireless network. Also the new operating system from Google named as Google Chrome OS will use Google Cloud Printing. Google has also confirmed that neither there is a print stack nor there are any printer drivers on Google Chrome OS.

The devices like BlackBerry, Windows machines and Macs will use a Web based API to communicate directly with cloud-ware printers and send signals to a proxy server in order to communicate with “legacy” printers. Google confirmed that it has already started the development of the software for Windows that will perform this function. Google also confirmed that later on this year the software will also support Mac and Linux.

Though the project is still in its early stages, Google has made the existing code and documentation open to the public. To use the Google’s Cloud Print technology, users will have to associate their printers with their Google logins.
