    First of all, THANK YOU to teddy_bear and the others who have made tomato a fantastic piece of software! Outstanding job!

    I have an Asus WL-520GU, and I'd like to connect my DeskJet 930C to it. I'm looking at buying a USB-to-Parallel printer cable, and am wondering if anyone else has done this (and if so, was it successful?).

    Apparently the cable has a driver associated with it, and that's where I'm getting confused... I assume that if the cable were plugged-in to a USB port on my PC, Windows would recognize it and either load the driver automatically, or prompt me to load it. But since the cable will be plugged-in to the *router*... would the driver somehow have to be installed on the router? That doesn't sound quite right... but I don't know... and sorry if it's an ignorant question...! Thanks!
