    My systems run Windows XP Pro operating system on both Computer A and Computer B

    Computer A is connected to a DSL modem through a WRT54G v4 router.

    Computer B is connected to the router through a WMP54G Wireless G PCI adapter.

    I would like to connect Computer B to my laser printer via a WPS54G Wireless G Print Server. I would also like to hard wire Computer A to the print server. The print server would be connected to the printer via the USB connection.

    Is this possible? If so, is there a fairly simple but complete set of instructions or a tutorial that is available?

    I have tried to search this forum for an answer but cannot locate one. I am quite new at networking.

    The print server does not support simutaneous wired and wireless connections. If the printer server is hardwired to computer A by a second NIC, try making the printer a network printer and allow print and file sharing. The other way you can do it is to have the WPS54G connected to the router only by a wireless connection. Computer A can connect to it through the router via the wired connection and computer B can connect to via the wireless connection to the router.

    I have my WPS54G set up like Howardp6 stated and haven't had any problems....
