We have 6 pcs in our home and 6 printers; seems like too many printers. I have a new color printer I want to use for 3 of our pc's then I want to run the other 3 though a single printer.
Guy who does our tv/stereo wiring says he will install a wireless printer adapter for $275.00. I tried to look up wirelss print adapters to see what they cost but I can't tell which one I would need.

Question: Do particular printers/pc's require specific wireless adapters or are they universal? Is there knowledge involved in installing or are they pretty much plug-and-play?

I'm a cheap bastard and don't like paying for things I don't have to. Thanks for any knowledge you can share.

Found this on the Fry's Electronics site, do you need anything other than this to print wirelessly?

Thanks Mikey. Is that the only piece of hardware I need for my wireless pc's?
