AirPort Extreme

Wireless Printing

Ever wish you had more than one printer in your home or office — one for every computer so you never have to go far to print something? Say you want to print a business letter from the living room, or your son wants to print his school report from his bedroom. Taking each computer into the den simply to print something is inconvenient, and buying a printer for every room is expensive.

Print from anywhere.

With wireless printing through AirPort Extreme, it’s almost like having a printer in every room of the home or office. AirPort Extreme uses the Mac- and PC-compatible Bonjour networking technology to let everyone on the network take advantage of one centrally available printer. Wirelessly, of course.*

Plug and print.

Here’s how simple it is to set up: Just plug the printer into the USB port on the AirPort Extreme Base Station, add it to the printer list on your Mac or PC, and you’re good to print — without a single cable tethering anyone’s computer to the printer.

If you want to both print and share a USB hard drive, no problem. Just connect a USB hub to AirPort Extreme and attach your devices to the hub.
