    I want to set up a Canon LBP6670dn laser printer with a wireless connection. I've had this printer for several years and have not used it. When I purchased it, there was a 'method' of hooking it up to my network that never really worked.

    Several years later, I'm looking for recommendations for a wireless print server or other method that would do this connectivity for me.

    Thanks

    If you are an all Windows house you can share the printer with other computers on your network. You can even do it from a small windows PC like a NUC. If you don't want to leave a PC running at all times there may be a way to use a Raspberry pi as the print server.
    I know that some routers have a USB port and opensource firmware like OpenWRT will let you set up your router as your print server.
