    We have a wireless access point router. We have three other computers [all computers windows xp]working well with this wireless connection. I would like to link our printer so that a word document on the wireless computer can use the printer in another location. Is this possible Thanks

    Yes its possible, but you need to tell us how the printer is presently connected.

    If it is locally connected to another PC, then that PC can "share" the printer, but the PC must be powered on and logged on to do so.

    If you want to use the printer independently of any other PC being powered on, then you need to have the printer connected to the network.

    There are so many possible variations that you need to explain how everything is currently connected in order to get a definitive solution.
