Vodafone dongle connect to printer?

PostPosted by Cleoriff » Sun Oct 09, 2016 5:28 pm

A friend of mine has just moved house. No WiFi as yet and is using Vodafone dongle for her laptop
She wonders if this can be connected to her printer....so that works off the dongle?

I assume it's a wifi printer?
if so, I think they way to do would be through the wifi sharing hotspot on laptop unless the dongle has wifi capability too? in which case just search on the printer for the wifi network being sent from the dongle or laptop.
