Yes you need to setup the printer as a shared printer using the printer driver CD.
Your shared printer and computer would need to be on your LAN and connected to a wireless router. The laptop will connect to the shares printer via the wireless router and LAN cable to the computer with the shared printer.
Please click on this link and follow my instructions to setup the shared printer.

I DON T KNOW HOW TO CHANGE THE SETTINGS ON MY ROUTER SO THAT IT CAN CONNECT WITH MY WII. THE ROUTER AND THE WII ARE COMPATIBLE BUT IT SAYS TO CHANGE THE ROUTER FROM 6 TO EITHER 1 OR 11 BUT HOW DO U DO...


Go to your router's Web Utility, if possible through a computer connected to the router by cable (because you'll loose access to the router once you change its encryption rules). If you haven't changed the access parameters, the default IP address is 192.168.1.1, with 'User Name' left blank, and 'Password' set to 'admin'. In the 'Wireless' tab. I supponse you already have encryption definitions there. Try to set your 'Security Mode' to 'WPA Personal' and 'Algorithm' to 'TKIP'. Chose any 'WPA Shared Key' you want (from 8 to 63 characteers), and set the 'Group Key Renewal' parameter to 0 (zero, i.e. no key renewal, at all). Save your settings.
You see, my router is not Linksys, but in essence, the encryption parameters are quite alike, and this is how I managed to provide internet to my son's Wii console.
Hope it works for you.
Regards, Carlos

A shot in the dark. Do your lap tops have elevated heat relief? In other words a stand to elevate the laptops to stop overheating??

To connect to your wireless router, it needs the router’s wireless settings configured and also needs the wireless cards in all the laptops and or computers to be configured with the router’s wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router.

To set-up and secure the wireless router from unauthorized access, follow these steps: -
1. Connect the wireless router to your computer with a LAN cable.
2. Start your browser and enter the router's configuration URL IP address.
3. Enter the router setup, login and password
4. Change the admin password
5. Go to the wireless settings and change the default SSID and turn off SSID broadcast.
6. Setup encryption key the strongest is WPA2 (if not then WPA).
7. For further security measures - turn on MAC address filtering and enter the MAC address of the wireless cards on the computer/s you want to connect to this wireless router.
8. Record the settings you have made and keep it in a safe place and Save the settings.
9. Configure the wireless cards on the computer/s with the SSID and encryption settings of the router.
10. Remove the LAN cable between the router and the computer then the computers should be able to connect to the router wirelessly.

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
