Wireless networks allow you to connect an Asus network to a printer located anywhere on the network. Asus netbooks come with wireless adaptor cards, so you can travel with the netbook and connect to any wireless-network hot spot. It also allows you to connect to the wireless network's printer, provided the printer is shared on the network. The Asus EEE netbooks come with either Windows 7 Home or Starter edition. Nevertheless, the procedure for wireless printer connectivity is the same.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Navigate to the Windows "Start" button on your Asus netbook. Select "Devices and Printers" in the menu options, then click "Add a printer." The "Add Printer" wizard begins.

  2. 2

    Click the option named "Add a network, wireless or Bluetooth printer" in the list of options. The next window searches for available printers. If your netbook is unable to identify the desired printer, click "The printer that I want isn't listed," which will prompt you for the printer's location and name.

  3. 3

    Type the computer name and printer name in the text box. If you're unsure of the printer name, click the "Browse" button. In the opened dialogue window, double-click the computer that has the printer connected, then double-click the printer name. The dialogue window closes and the location and name of the printer are shown in the text box.

  4. 4

    Click "Next." Select "Use an existing port," which is the default port selected. Click "Next."

  5. 5

    Check the box named "Set as default printer" if you want to set this printer as the default printer each time you print a document. Click "Finish" to complete the printer addition.

Tips and warnings

  • If you have a plug-and-play printer that connects through the printer's USB port, you can connect the printer directly to your Asus netbook's USB port. In such a case, you won't need to use the "Add Printer" wizard. Windows will automatically install the appropriate driver.
