Self-Help: Adding a Wireless Networked Printer in OSX

Adding a Wireless Networked Printer in OSX

This tutorial applies to the following operating system(s):



Open network printers can be wirelessly networked to your Apple laptop. This tutorial will walk you through the process to set up a wireless connection on your Apple laptop.


Step 1

Click on the Apple icon and then click System Preferences… 

Adding a wirelessly networked printer to your Mac OS X machine is slightly more difficult than in Windows because it must be added “manually” without a list of available printers. This means you must know the name of the printer you wish to add.
