    More information on the wireless is needed.Please read this sticky, and post back with the information.

    Wireless Setup - Start Here

    Also, what application are you using to connect with the wireless? You should be using the NetworkManager applet, found in the taskbar.

    You should be able to use CUPS (Common Unix Printing System). It is installable using YUM. After installation, you access the CUPS server through a web browser, like Firefox
    Code:
    http://localhost:631/
    If your printer is a network printer, I believe that you would use the ipp protocol to access it. An example of my printer, which is connected to a PC:
    Code:
    ipp://192.168.1.75:631/printers/psc_1200
    You also need to install the correct Linux driver for the printer, on the PC that will send the document to the printer.

    Since this is off topic, start a new thread for further CUPS questions. Maybe in the peripherals or Fedora section.
