    I have a WRT54G wireless router. I want to connect two printers. I have an old HP LaserJet5 and an Epson Stylus Photo 200. I think I need a printer router? Do I need to worry about the router being compatible with my laser printer? I can use wire to setup this router since both printers are in the same room with my computer.
    Any help will be appreciated.

    The WPS54GU2 has a parallel and USB2 port, it will work with some of the HP Laserjet printers on the parallel port, but Laserjet 5 was not listed, but Laserjet 6 was listed on the compatability thread. The Epson was not listed. If you can return it I would give it a try. The downside is the encryption only WEP. You can try the Dlink DP-G321 it has a parallel and two USB2 ports for a wireless printserver.
