Question about Actiontec GT704WG Wireless Router (gs583ad3-01)
Can my modem also be used as a print server? If yes how do I accomplish this?
You can use a computer as a print server, and the router will allow other computers to connect to it. But other than that, you'll need to buy a print server separately and hook it into your router. You can set your computer up as a print server by installing the printer on the computer and setting up file and printer sharing through the network setup wizard in Windows XP, this can be found in Control Panel. Once that is set up, do the same for all other networked computers and then you will be able to install the printer on all other computers and print wirelessly (or wired) from any computer connected to the router. However, the computer the printer is physically connected to will need to stay on all the time, or at least be on when you need to print from another computer. I'm not quite sure if you can get a router with a built in print server anyway. But you can certainly achieve what you're looking to do - but perhaps not an all in one package like you were asking. I hope this helps you.
