    Hi guys,
    I know this is probably not possible, but I just wanted to double check with everyone else.

    I have a wireless brother printer 1210W
    I moved to a place with no wifi, so for internet I'm using ethernet (connected via USB)

    Is it possible to print via wifi instead of USB even though I don't have a router.
    My computer can use bluetooth and can also open wifi connection of its own (but obviously not connected to itself.. )

    I download and read the manual. This is a USB and WiFi printer only, no Ethernet. There is also no Wireless Direct printing. So you will need a router if you don't want to use USB. However just a cheap travel router for around $20 will work. Search the web. Remember though, your computer and printer must be on the same network in order to print.

    Just connect USB and go.
