I have the WRT54G router. I got an adapter for my USB Printer cable to Ethernet to connect it to the router. I have a wireless laptop that I would like to use to send the print jobs to the printer (a PSC750). Is there a software program or driver that I need to make this work?


Connecting to a Wireless Network with SSID Broadcast Disabled when using Windows Vista & Windows 7 Article ID: 5451
Disabling SSID broadcast is another way to secure your wireless network. This will ensure that your SSID will not be detected whenever someone does a scan. When connecting to a wireless network with SSID broadcast disabled, you will have to create a profile.

Creating a Profile

NOTE: Disabling SSID broadcast is another way to secure your wireless network. This will ensure that your SSID will not be detected whenever someone does a scan. When connecting to a wireless network with SSID broadcast disabled you have to create a profile.
Step 1:
Right-click this icon kb_5451-001_en.png at the bottom right-hand corner of the screen, then select Network and Sharing Center.

NOTE: If you are using Windows 7, just click once on this icon kb_5451-003_en.png at the bottom-right of the screen then select Open Network and Sharing Center.

On the Network and Sharing Center window, click Manage wireless networks.

Step 3:
Click Add. NOTE: You have to remove your preferred network before before you proceed to click Add a new connection. If you see your network has changed from Automatic to Manual, you will face difficulties to connect your computer on the network because the SSID is not broadcasting into the available network connection. After removing your preferred network and adding it back, the network will turn to Automatic and you will be able to connect automatically into your network. Make sure to look at network properties/Connection and check "Connect when this network is in range".
