    I have a WRT54GS that I have a desktop directly connected using a 10 base T cable and have an older HP Laserjet parallel connected to this computer. I want to be able to use the printer for BOTH the desktop and any computer I connect wirelessly to the router.

    I'm not sure if I can make the desktop a print server so wireless computers can print to the printer or if I need to install a separate print server to the router.

    Can someone give me some basics for solving my printing printing problem or direct me to an article explaining the solution.

    if you right click on the printer in windows you can share it out.

    then from any PC connected to the same network you should just be able to browse to the printer by the ip address of that pc or via network neighbourhood, assuming the other users have rights on the host pc.

    alternatively, you could get a second hand jetdirect card for the laserjet off ebay maybe.

    Thanks, that seems to be doing the trick for me.
