Not much an expert with computers and network devices...
I have wireless Internet access through Verizon. They have supplied me with a Samsung 4G LTE Mobile Hotspot SCH-LC11 modem. My laptop detects it when it is on and connects to it in a wireless manner.
I now would like to purchase a wireless printer and set things up such that I can print from my laptop. I guess I could set up a wired connection between my laptop and the printer using a USB cable, but I would prefer being able to keep everything wireless.
So, what I do not understand is whether I can use the Samsung modem as a wireless router and print through it. If so, how do I do that? The SCH-LC11 user guide has no instructions on how to do it.
If it cannot be done, I guess I would have to purchase a real router, right? If that is the case, how would I get the Samsung modem and the router to talk to each other? Can it be done in a wireless manner, or do I have to use some sort of cable between the two? I am thinking it must be done wirelessly as the SCH-LC11 has no Ethernet port, so how could I possibly set up a wired connection between it and the router??
Or maybe there is something that I need to set up in my laptop (through Windows 7 Home Premium) such that it detects the wireless printer without the help of a router??
I need your help!
Thanks in advance.
