Wireless: Printing from a Laptop (Windows)


This article shows you the step-by-step process of how to send a print job from your Windows laptop to one of the LSU Public Access computer lab print servers via LSU's Wireless Network.

Anyone with a valid MyLSU Account ID and a Tiger Card can print documents remotely to any of the LSU Public Access computer lab printers. Once you have downloaded and installed that printer's software package, it is as simple as selecting that printer from your updated list and submitting your document for printing.

You can also print wirelessly at LSU from your Mac Laptop, for more information review the following:  Wireless: Printing from a Laptop (Mac).

Print from Your Windows Laptop to an On-Campus Printer:

NOTE: If you have installed a printer package with the Pharos Popup previously, it may no longer be valid and working. We would recommend you first uninstall the Pharos Popup client in Windows Add or Remove Programs (choosing Pharos > Uninstall, checking "Pharos Popups" as the uninstall option, and proceeding with the uninstaller.) Once finished, you can download and install the new package from the link below.

1. Go to the LSU Public Access Printer Packages page. 

2. Find the appropriate printer that you would like to print from the list. In this example, we want to print our document in the LSU Library Computer Lab in room 141.

3. Click the LSU Library 141 BW and/or LSU Library??????? 141 Color link.

4. Click Allow when you are prompted to allow this software to make changes to your computer.

5. Click Install to begin the installation. When the installation is complete, click Finish.

  • NOTE: If the installation fails, please remove it from the Printers & scanners section in the Windows Settings (click on LSU Library 141 Printer and select Remove Device) and then reinstall from step 1 above. It should then work.
