    Do I need MotoPrint on my computer?

    Hello,

    I'm a little confused if I need MotoPrint on my computer or not. I have a WiFi printer and the Bionic seems to connect to it just fine. So Do I need to have the software on my computer or is that just for printers that don't have WiFi?

    Not needed if you're already connected and working.
    I have CDO. It's like OCD except the letters are in alphabetical order, as they should be.

    MotoPrint is only needed if your phone can't find your printers (my case). I installed MotoPrint on one my computers and it worked perfectly. The Bionic found the MotoPrint host and was able to print to any printer configured on the host machine.

    Stupid question but I am sorry; how do you connect the Bionic to your WiFi Printer without the software?

    You just connect the Bionic to your home WiFi network, run MotoPrint, search for Printer, and it finds it if it's one of the compatible ones. If it's not, you have to install the PC MotoPrint Software where the printer is connected so be able to access it.

    I believe it only works with WIFI printers.

    You can use MotoPrint PC Host to allow your Bionic to print to any printer available on the host PC. I am doing it, and it works flawlessly.

    I have it on my phone only. As long as you are on the same wifi network as your printer (the computer that is connected to the printer is using wifi) it will work. I have a new printer on machine and an old ink jet on another and I can connect and print to both.
