    Connect to wireless printer and wireless router at the same time
    I can connect wirelessly to my router and I can connect wirelessly to my pinter one at a time.
    If I'm browsing the internet and want to print I have to break my connection to the router and connect to the printer.

    This is a pain in the .(especially when listening to pandora radio)

    Any way to stay wirelessly connected to the internet and use my wireless printer?
    Thanks for any suggestions

    My OS is xp

    It sounds as if your wireless network is configured for ad-hoc mode or each device is configured for a different wireless network. Configure the router for infrastructure mode and then connect the PC and printer to it while confirming all devices are using the same wireless network settings.
