Hello community,

I am in a search of a router that has an inbuilt functionality of range extending and can make a wired printer wireless(print server). Please render to find the best one.

Hello @RainbowAttic309,

 

Is there already a wireless router in your house? If yes, a range extender can meet your requirement, you can connect the extender to the main router via a wireless connection, then connect it to the wired printer with cable, and the wired printer should be able to link to the internet. Here are the models you can check:

If you do want to get another router that can be configured as an extender, you can check this list:

Hello, you can refer to this FAQ, there is a "This Article Applies to:", where you can find the list of routers that support printer sharing feature:

https://www.tp-link.com/support/faq/1529/

 

Then check the product user manually to double confirm before purchasing, such as Archer C9, there is a printer sharing menu on the router web GUI:
