The first thing to check is that both of your computers are assigned to the same workgroup name. Right click 'my computer' and select properties. Change the workgroup name so that they are identical on both machines. You will need to reboot if you change the name one one or both of the machines.

I have a laptop which is hooked up to a wireless router (Belkin) and NOBODY can get my wireless kodak printer to work on this system including the tech who came out from the cable co.


How is this printer connected to your PC? If it's connected wirelessly, I would suggest connecting it through a wired connection (if is has Ethernet capability) and trying to install it again. Even if you need to relocate it near your router it may very well fix your problem. Most wireless printers have annoyingly poor wireless cards in them, resulting in problems. you would then install it as a network printer and you can access it from any PC's in range of the router.
If this not have an ethernet port, then I would try connecting it directly to a desktop PC (via USB), and you could share it with other network users. In my experience this works very reliably, with only one caveat: for print jobs to go through the connected computer has to be on.

Do you have to connect the router to the computer to use it


You have to be connected via either Wired or Wireless connection to use a router. You can use wireless exclusively, wired connection is not required, but often handy for troubleshooting connectivity issues. If you are using DSL or Cable modem, the modem is connected to the uplink port of the Router, then you either connect wired via port 1, 2, 3 or 4 (they are all the same) or a wireless connection (Default settings are unsecure wireless for most routers)

CHANGE FROM WIRELESS TO WIRED INTERNET CONNECTION


It is possible .. just get youself an ethernet cable .. connect one end to your router and the other end to the back of the pc ( ethernet port ) .. and u will be connected via the wire.. You can disable the wireless connection from the router for that you can either call your Internet service provider or the netgear support team.

Wireless router - establish wired connection with desktop PC


You are right, cable connection is more secure. The steps are:
1.) Connect the PC to the router with a crossover cable.
2.) Once connected, try to see if you are in the network. If you are, then you are ready to connect to the net.

Pc connection problems


Sounds like you are setup to use Internet Connection Sharing. don't do this. Have each computer connect to the internet via the router. If the router is wireless connect all computers wirelessly to the router that are wireless capable and any computers that are not wireless capable, connect them to the router via a cat5 cable to the cat5 ports on the router. This will solve your problem. BPCS
