I see that this is old but I don't see an answer to the question so here is what needs to be done:
Ok first off, do you have the software installed and working properly for your HUAWEI EC168 wireless internet card... if so move on to the next step
Next; on the same pc as your wireless internet card, is your wireless g router installed and working properly... if so move on to the next step
Next and most important you need to do what's next because , to the best of my knowledge, there is no other way around it as this is what I am doing. Also depending on what Windows your are using ( I am running Win XP Pro) depicts on how to get to the right internet settings. If your are running the same Windows then do as follows:
Click Start -> Connect to -> Click Show All Connections (New Window will open)
Right click on Dial-up Connection -> click on Properties (New Window will open)
Click Advanced tab -> In "Internet Connection Sharing" make sure you have a check mark next to "Allow other network users to connect through this computer's Internet Connection" and click OK. A window will pop up and click OK again.
Make sure that the network cable this is plugged in from your pc's network card which in turn is connected to the internet port on the back of the router.
Now your network is complete and should work. All of this allows your internet connection on your pc to communicate to your wireless g router, via network cable. The only issue is that you always need to have your pc on and your internet connected for this setup to work.

Where does the phone line go in the lynksys box.

Phone Line?

You need a cable or dsl modem to connect to the internet. From the modem you run an ethernet cable to the "broadband" or "Internet" port of your router.
Also make sure your lynksys is a router, not a switch

Hope this helps

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

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 :-)
