We have 2 laptops and one desktop that all used to print wirelessly in our old home. When we moved, we disconnected everything and now I haven't the faintest idea on how to get this working again. I don't even know where to begin.
Can anyone help? Our laptops all currently access the net wirelessly.

Based on your post description, I am assuming that: 1. You can connect to the Internet through your 2241 Neptoia modem; 2. You can access your WRT54G V8 Linksys Wireless router @ 192.168.1.1; 3. Both 1 & 2 above could be done through a wireless connection from your PC.
Connect everything as they are supposed to be wired (printer, Print Server, modem, router etc)
Pls try: a. Connect the Linksys wireless print server using a lan cable to the Linksys WRT54G Wireless AP/router. (Will tackle the wireless connection a bit later) b. Reset your print server; & c. Do a diagnostic print-out. Instructions for b & c are in page 4 of your manual.
You need to verify that: i. the Power indicator is contnously green ii. the Ethernet indicator is contnously green iii. the USB indicator is contnously green iv. the Wireless indicator may or may not be contnously green
Pls post back with the generated diagnostic print-out before we can proceed with the other steps.
Additionally, try installing the Epson Stylus Photo RX600 direct to one of the USB ports of your PC. Use the installer/driver CD that came with it. Try using it as a regular printer. This will tell us status of the printer.
Most older printers are not compatible with the new VISTA program. I have a $350 printer which can not be used although a cheap $30 printer that is 8 years old will work with VISTA. I was glad I save the old one
The issue was the wireless print server not properly connecting to my home network and thus being unable to see my modem/network. This was because my linksys wireless print server generates its wep key with a different algorithm than the Motorola surfboard SBG900, this also explains why when I was using my old linksys wireless g router, things worked without any issue (same wep key algorithm). Once I figured out how to manually configure the print servers wireless settings and manually enter the wep security settings I was able to connect to my network and the configuration found the print server and I was able to finish setup.
Indeed, you don't need the print server. Since your HP 6310 already has an integrated network port, you may setup and use it on your laptop the same way you do with your desktop. If you can browse the Internet wirelessly with your laptop, you should also be able to print.
