If you have a wireless printer you can. Just go through the setup screens on your printer, basically it will search for available networks, click on your wifi modem and enter the password. You'll have to have the printer's app installed on your device.

That modem also hasĀ  WPS button near the top, on the back. If your printer can be connected that way, it does work. I have mine connected and, only needed top press the WPS button to connect it.

You should be able to but you'll need to refer to the steps for that particular printer in order to do so

i have gone through the setup on the printer and was successful for one document, but when I tried to print another document I had to go through the setup again on the printer, before it would print the second document. What's going on?
