Ad hoc router WRT54GX4


To connect to your wireless router, the router's wireless settings needs to be configured with the SSID, encryption etc. and also the wireless cards in all the laptops/computers needs to be configured with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops/desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router.
Connect a LAN cable from the Linksys to the LAN port on your computer.
Open a browser and enter the Linksys configuration URL
http://192.168.1.1
The default login = admin
The default PW = admin
You can protect your router by changing the default admin PW (write it down and put it in a safe place)
Go to the wireless configuration and set up the SSID and WPA or WPA2 encryption to protect your wireless network and Internet from unauthorized access.
Now apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer.
To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access, please click on this link and follow my instructions :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

From your description, you appeared to have to have set up the printer correctly to print over your internet.
Can you see the remote computer from the main computer and the remote computer from the main computer?
Are both computers in the same workgroup or network name?

You may want to check your installation against my instruction on setting up a shared printer.

Disable your firewall on that computer where you shared your printer.

After that check firewall settings to allow printing from the network.

Option1: Install both USB printers on the desktop computer, and then share them. Your laptops will be able to connect to them, but only when the desktop is turned on.

Option2: Buy a wireless print server, (Available from D-Link, LInksys, HP, etc) and use that to connect your USB printers wirelessly.

If you also want to wirelessly connect the desktop to your network, purchase either a USB, or PCI Wireless NIC for it.

The printer and print server has to be connected to the wireless router by a network cable for you to print wirelessly from the laptop.
If possible connect a long network cable between the print server and the wireless router or move the router next to the print server and printer.
You maybe able to use a wireless repeater/extender but is it worth the added costs and complication. The extended range would invite hackers unless you secure your system.

Desktop won't connect with printer connected to laptop


Make sure both computers can share files and can ping each other, if not, it's just a firewall issue. Try to disable your firewall first.

USB adapter


You can try using the WZC (wireless zero configuration) utility instead of the linksys utility. Just right click the icon and select "use windows to configure my wireless settings".

You can also check for wireless interfence that could be blocking the connection of your wireless computer to the router. Try changing the channel of the router and make sure that the wireless settings are personalized.

If all those failed, you can try updating the driver on your wireless adapter and the router's firmware.

If you have any other problems, just click on ask me and ill answer it as soon as I can.

Trying to network xp pc to wireless laptop


Right click on the drive you want to share. Ex: C:\Vol-xx = name. In the pop up window click Sharing & Security. This needs done to all the drives you want access too. To share a printer. Everyone must have the printer drivers installed. The Pc that has a direct connection to the printer must also Share the printer on the network. Open Printer & Faxes, highlight the printer you want to share. Click File than click Sharing follow windows instructions.
Small suggestion regards to the wireless side of the network. Suggest you setup security so others close too you can not tap into your network. (common).
