from this post you will soon realise that I am very inexperienced with regards to Networking. So any easy to undestand and help given would be much appreciated.
At the moment I have cable Internet via NTL in the UK with a DSL modem and wireless router (Belkin). I have a laptop which I use to access the internet by wireless. I have 2 seperate USB external hard drives (Freecom) to back up my valuable data from my laptop.
What I would like to do is the following:
Be able to back up my data wirelessly from my laptop (fed up with having to keep getting back up drives out of cupboard and plug into laptop)
Access a printer wirelessly without having to buy a wireless printer I have a canon HL 1530D
(fed up with having to keep getting printer out of cupboard and plug into laptop)
Ideally what hardware could I plug into my belkin router (or do I have to buy another router also)
Ideally I would like the printer in a bedroom
The hardware (back up device etc) being plugged into the router in another room
I would not be able to connect the router to a printer by wire but the hard drive device etc
could be (lack of space)
I have seen on the internet that you can buy devices that you can use the house wiring as a network could this work if so how?
Would I need a PC plugged into router to be able to do?
If this is not clear please let me know.
Thanks for any help
