I am not very technology smart, so if I write something that is not correct please excuse me.

I have an older laser printer (HP LaserJet 2100) that works well when connected with Cat5 (Ethernet) wire.

The problem is that now (on the road) I am using my ATT Mobley hotspot to receive Internet. The Mobley works very well, but I can not print since the printer is wired not wireless.

Is there an adapter that will receive the wireless signal and convert it to a Ethernet wired CAT5 output?


Please give me enough troubles, uncertainty, problems, obstacles and STRESS so that I do not become arrogant, proud, and smug in my own abilities, and enough blessings and good times that I realize that someone else is in charge of my life.

One such device is an IOGEAR Ethernet-2-WiFi Universal Wireless Adapter, GWU637.

Can be found from many sources such as Amazon,etc.
There are many others

I have such an adapter or 2 if I havent' tossed 'em out

Not the best way to do it but They do work.. Provided the adapter you have is HP compatable.. one of mine was not compatable with the printer... which is why I have two.

Best Buy sells them or did.


Home is where I park it.

At today’s printer prices, buy a more capable unit with Bluetooth rather than an “adapter.”
