Lynksys WRT300N Wireless Router and using two or three printers on the network

I have the router hooked up to my destop to all three of us can share internet access and print from my HP Officejet 7210 all-in-one printer.
I have an older HP Laserjet 6P that I would like to add to the network so we would have a choice of which printer to use. The HP laserjet does not have an USB port. Is there a simple way to achieve this?

Is the HP working on any machine? You can connect it to any one of the machines and share it.
Now you just find it on the network.

You can purchase a USB to parallel adapter for about $25-35 if none of your PC's have parallel ports.

I would imagine that HP still maintains PCL drivers that will be compatible with 2000/XP. Good luck on the Vista :-)

Can i hook my printer to this router Linksys wireless-g 2.4ghz


You want to connect a printer to the network.
If you have Ethernet port on the printer then you can connect it to the router with the ethernet cable. IF it is wireless printer then you will need to connect to the wireless network on the printer. In both the cases you will need to set up your printer as a network printer. If you contact the manufacturer of the printer they will tell you how to do it.
If you do not have ethernet port on the printer and it has only USB port and it is not a wireless printer then you will need a print server. You can purchase a wireless print server and you can set it up so that all the computers will be able to print onthe same printer.
If you have only the USB port and you don't want to use print server, then you can connect your printer to one of your computer. Enable File and printer sharing on all the computer. If you go to microsoft.com and search for file and printer sharing, you will get steps to enable file and printer sharing.
If you want to check the wireless settings of the router, you will need to open the set up page of the router .

How do i hook up my ps3 to my network wirelessly


Make sure the same SSID and network key is configured on your PS3's wireless settings. To get the SSID and network key do the following steps.

1. Open your Internet Explorer and type http://192.168.1.1 on the Address Bar
2. It will prompt you for username and password. Type admin on the password, leave it blank for username. If admin password doesn't work, type your own password.
3. When you get to the Setup page of the router, go to Wireless tab. Take not of the SSID or the Wireless Network Name.
4. Now click the sub-tab Wireless Security that's under the Wireless tab. Take note of the Security Mode. If it is WPA-Personal, take note of the Shared Key or Passphrase. If the Security Mode is WEP, take note of the WEP key # 1.

5. Now all you need to do is access the Wireless Settings of your PS3 and configure manually the SSID and the Security Key. Then reboot the router and PS3. That should do it.

Linksys has a software program at their website called Easylink Advisor. Have you installed it yet? I had to and it has helped keep all of our computers online and networked. All desktops and laptops in the house stay connected share files and one printer.
