Networking Printer on Bus. Network?


Beta member
Hello all -

heres my situation. I am working at a smaller Choice Hotel chain, and we would like to set up a inkjet printer that guests can print to while using the available Wireless or wired networks in their rooms, or in the lobby area.

We already have a smaller old inkjet printer, a HP external jetdirect and the cables. so everything hardware wise is there to make it work.

How would I be able to set up the jet direct to sit on the network, and for everyone to be able to find it, connect to it and print to it by using the windows printer wizard?

as far as I know, or thought thus far was that you needed the jet direct software on the computer in order to find it? please help, manager is down my throat for this.
