HP printersA wireless network includes a device called a wireless router or access point that sends and receives radio signals similar to a cordless phone base station. Other wireless devices on the network, like computers and printers, are like the cordless handsets. All communication on the wireless network runs through the wireless router, allowing the connected devices to talk to each other as well as share an internet connection provided by an Internet Service Provider (ISP).

This type of network is called an "infrastructure network". If you have a wireless router with wireless devices connected to it, you have a wireless infrastructure network.

Most wireless routers provide physical connection points for wired network devices such as computers and printers. A special cable called an Ethernet cable is used. This wired connection is known as an Ethernet connection.

All devices that connect to your wireless router, whether wirelessly or through an Ethernet cable, have access to the same network. These devices can communicate with each other regardless of how they connect to the network. For example, a desktop computer connected by Ethernet can print to a wireless printer as long as they are connected to the same wireless router.
