I have a Toshiba Satellite click that I bought in August of 2014. I cannot get it to print anything. My computer will recognize printers, it will even install them, but it tends to show printers as offline and even if I send a document to the printer it will not print it. I have tried to use 3 hp printers and a Canon one. I am at a loss as to what to do. Help me?
What is a router in regards to printer? I only know of internet or wifi routers
A standard home Wifi network consists of these components:
Modem (receives signal from broadcast tower):
Router (connects modem and other peripherals like external hard drives to devices) :
And then of course your laptops and devices like tablets, phones, and Smart TVs. Some networks also have central file storage or what's called NAS (Network Attached Storage) but that's another thing entirely.
