How can I connect an HP Laserjet 4100 printer to my wireless network WITHOUT pluging the printer into a computer.  My desktop is in the bedroom and I want the printer in another room - about 100 feet apart.  Is this possible?  Thank you.

    You have a few options with this printer. You can make this a wired or wireless print server. If you go with the wired option you can use the HP J3110A  print server that plugs directly into your printer or you can get a wired print server. You can also get wireless print servers.

    I hope this helps. Good luck.

    Hi dpsmithers,

    Only a wireless printer or a network printer canprint without connect to a PC. Is your printer HP Laserjet 4100 or HP Laserjet 4100n ? If your printer is HP Laserjet 4100 then you need connect to a PC to print.

    If it is a HP Laserjet 4100n you just need plug it into your network and install the printer driver on your computer, then it can print.

    you should able to find an ethernet port at the back of your printer if your printer is a network printer.

    Good luck.
