Am I able to link my Samsung Tablet with a Canon MG3160 wireless printer without setting up a wireless network, as I use a desktop computer without wireless capability?
i don't think you can print from the tablet unless you have a wireless printer with a wireless network
I guess you can try/use Google cloud print if
A. The printer is as of now connected (wirelessly) and working fine with any desktop/laptop or
B. If that printer is certified as "Cloud print ready"
If you have a wireless router get the app PrintShare on your android and windows. Then you can print from your wifi - using phone to your ethernet - using computer
Why not use USB cable to connect your desktop computer and printer?
