Default Re: Connect to wireless printer from another location

Does anyone have any idea? All I need is to be able to print from the printer in the office from uni without a computer having to be left on in the office all the time. The printer is connected to the router so surely theres a way of connecting to my router from anywhere? the router is a bt homehub if that makes a difference?

What you'd need then is some kinda of VPN. If your router from BT isn't capable of hosting a VPN then you'd need to find one that can act as a VPN server. My Asus RT-N66u has a built-in VPN server that I've used to access all my network devices remotely.
