Wireless Printer & Scanner Setup

printer setupPrinters and scanners are helpful tools for the home and office. But getting them setup and running smoothly isn’t always easy.

Selecting the Right Printer & Scanner

We can assist you in choosing the perfect printer for your needs. There are many different models available with a range of functions, which can be rather confusing if you’re not sure what the differences are between them all.  The best and most economical choice is not always the cheapest – as often the very cheap models use the most expensive cartridges.  We’ll review your requirements and anticipated needs and help you choose the most appropriate model.

Getting Them Setup and Working

scanner setupAfter you’ve purchased your new printer we’ll make sure it’s all setup properly in your home or office, so it can be accessed from all the devices you want to print from.

This includes:

  • Wireless printer setup, so you can print directly from your iPhone or iPad
  • Multi-function printer setup – eg: get all the print, photocopy, fax and scan functions working properly
  • Automated scanning to PDF setup, a very useful setting that will save you a lot of time
  • Setup a separate scanner if you’ve purchased one of these

We’ll walk you through the printing and scanning processes step-by-step, so you’ll have no issues operating the printer yourself.

Lastly, if your printer or scanner is playing up, we can troubleshoot the issue and fix the machine.

An inject printer uses liquid inks to print, and a laser printer uses powder to print. Inject printers are cheaper to purchase, but their consumables cost more compared to a laser printer.
If your printer is near your NBN modem or network switch, we generally recommend hardwiring it into your network.

If you find wireless printing unreliable give us a call, so we can fix this for you.
