    My Airport Express is setup in my living room. I want to set up my printer,but do I have to keep the printer connected to the Airport Express USB for it to work. I dont want to have to keep my printer in the living room as it doesnt look so hot! If anyone knows i would appreciate some feedback! :) :)

    1. Extend the ethernet connection to the Airport express so that it is in a less unsightly position

    2. Buy a second Airport for the printer which can then be hidden away

    3. Attach the printer directly to the computer

    4. Never print anything and save some trees

    5. Buy a wireless printer

    Otherwise you are stuck!

    My Boyfriend has a wireless printer. So does this mean I can leave the printer in the office and not have it in the living room after all :)

    Yes. Just make sure the wireless is turned on and conected to your wireless router. The computer must be connected to the same router. It doesn't matter if it's hard wired or wireless (the computer) Then install the software and your all set.
