Wi-Fi Printer

What is a Wi-Fi printer?

A Wi-Fi enabled printer is a type of printer that can connect to a wireless network, so you can print from your computer, laptop, or mobile device without having to connect them to the printer physically. You can send a print request to the printer over the Wi-Fi network, and the printer will receive it and print out your document or image. This can be very convenient if you have multiple devices that need to use the same printer or if you don't want to have cables running from your devices to the printer. Wi-Fi printers are becoming more common and are often used in home offices, small businesses or other places where multiple people need to print from different devices.
