IR100M Printer Adapter Setup

The Ir Printer Adapter connected to printer

HP Deskjet 540 printer with the IR100M series printer adapter.

Shown to the left, the Ir printer adapter series IR100M is attached to the printer and ready to be used with a laptop, PDA, cellular phone or other Ir capable device. In this case a Compaq Presario notebook with Ir functions was used to send a document for print to the printer.

The printer itself was connected to a windows 95 machine with an updated Windows 95 Ir version 2.0 driver. Once in range the adapter was recognized and printing was started.

NOTE: It may be necessary if using a windows 95 machine to update the current IR driver to version 2.0 using the link above.

Testimonial for the IR100M printer adapter Making your wireless printer wireless capable, that's exactly what this adapter does. I updated my Windows 95 IR driver to version 2.0 as suggested in the user's manual, connected everything and I was printing via wireless connection in no time. The adapter is compatible with Windows OS through to Windows 2000 and is a real plus for wireless printing with laptops, PDA's, digital cameras and other Ir capable devices. The are some devices this adapter will not work with, you'll have to look at the compatibility list for details. The adapter worked very well as I selected a document on my IR capable laptop to print through the IR printer adapter.

This is ideal for an office situation of non networked printers. Turn them into Ir capable devices and send documents wirelessly to the printer as you walk by with your PDA or laptop.

If your looking for wireless printing but don't have an Ir capable printer, I would recommend this device. It's an alternative to buying a new printer if what your looking for is a wireless printer to work with your other wireless devices.
