I can recomend to your network setup is WPS54GU2
Wireless-G PrintServer for USB 2.0
******************************** Before configuring the wireless settings of the printserver, make sure to know the following settings on your D-link router: SSID, and wireless security.
Configuring the Wireless Settings on the Printserver
The wireless settings of the printserver can be configured using its web-based utility. Make sure the printserver is set to a static IP on the network.
NOTE: Make sure the printserver is already working when hardwired to the Dlink router before attempting to use it wirelessly on your network.
Step 1:
Access the printserver’s web-based setup page. Open a web-browser such as Internet Explorer.
NOTE: If you're using Mac, use Safari to access the printserver's web-based setup page.
Step 2:
Go to the address bar and enter the IP address you've assigned to the PrintServer.
NOTE: To assign the PrintServer a static IP address, click here.
Step 3:
When the printserver setup page appears, click Wireless.

Computers Do not find DI-704P router linked to Apris TM402G/110 Cable modem

Make sure that the cables are in the right place, computers should be connected to one of the 4 ethernet ports and the cable from the modem goes to the WAN port of the router, here's a picture, the WAN port is the closest one to the print server port.
If this is ok and still no internet than try to power down the router and the modem for a bit like 5-10 sec and put power back on, first the modem than the router, if this didn't help you out than you have to do some deeper configuration.
First you need to log in to the router while connected via cable to it. Open a web browser and type's the default ip address of the router), if it's not asking for username and password than start menu>run type in CMD and press enter, a DOS window will pop, type in IPCONFIG and press enter, the command's output will be something like this
The default gateway is what you need, that's the router's address, type that in the browser, it will ask for username and password, by default it's
Username: admin
Password: (just leave it blannk, no password)
or if it's not working:
Username: admin
Password: admin

You can use the wizard to finish the job, and don't forget to push the clone the MAC address button during the process. That should do it, but if you still have problems there's a very very detaliled howto from D-link over here.

Vista Compatibility with DI-704P

The print server software does not need to be installed in order to print to the printer attached to the 704P from Vista. I went out to D-LINK's website and there are step-by-step instructions for configuring port and associating a printer with that port.

See the following link:

These instructions are for 2000/XP but they are very similiar to what you need to do for Windows Vista. I tried it and it worked fine. It did take me several tries however, as I should have read through the steps completely first.

Mac Support for DLink 704P Router

The DI 704 P software is not distributed anymore , as D-Link discontinued the product.
Among 704 P only last version (revision D) supported mac, check here to find out your version.
You can still couple the server to mac using this procedure, give it a try.
If it does not work contact D-Link and ask if you can have copy of control software.

Add di-704p to an existing network

What you want to do should be quite easy:

1. Just connect one of the LAN ports of the DI-704P to a LAN port of your WRT54G. Try using a standard network cable. If the port status lights does not turn on on both sides when you connect the cable, use a "crossover" cable. Important: leave the DI-704P WAN port empty.

2. Disable the DHCP server on your DI-704P, your WRT54G will be the DHCP server.

3. Assign a static IP address to you DI-704P, different from your WRT54G. Example, if your WRT54G has, you may assign to your DI-704P. Make sure that the IP address you assign is outside the DHCP range configured in your WRT54G and that the subnet mask is identical on both.
You will then be able to use your print server from any wired and wireless computer and the remaining LAN ports both on the WRT54G and DI-704P.

London City Airport London City Airport Travel time and distance between London to London cities airports are shorter than those of the other London airports because it is close to the city's central. No matter if you take a taxi or take a bus it is the same and depends on the traffic conditions and delays in trains. How Do I Get From Central London To London City Airport The airport is the closest to the town's center, LCY is handily set away from by the DLR railway line, and it is easily accessible via public transportation. In contrast to Heathrow or other airports with a dedicated and costly--direct train that connects to the town's center, LCY is accessible via the Underground whenever you pay the best price and to the town center. How do you get Gatwick Airport Taxi Service - If you're returning from a location within zone 1 Zone 1, you'll be paying between $4 and $7, based on the day's time and the method you use to pay you'll save money by using of the Oyster Card in lieu of using cash. The Oyster Card is typically purchased for a tiny payment 5 pounds, or around $7 and the fares are put into the card. You'll be using your Oyster card to pay for all your transportation needs for London journeys using buses, the tube as well as some of the local trains and, consequently, the DLR.

Even returning from Paddington Station --which is situated on the other side of town and requires two transfers -- should only take 45 minutes assuming there aren't any delays, which isn't possible to say for certain.. Luton Airport Transfers for both to and from London city airport might appear like the most ideal choice for speed and efficiency even if you're not near the Tube station, they the majority of cases are, given that the ubiquitous black taxis of London are available everywhere and easy to get. But, as generally, if you're located close to the Tube station, the amount of time required to travel to LCY from the station is the same regardless of whether you use the subway or taxi cab. Conclusions If you're looking to stay clear of the expense of wasting money, then avoiding your London Underground to induce LCY is easy and cost-effective. Taxis cost more, but in the event that you're carrying bags, or have children, then it's definitely worth the extra cost to avoid all the problems that come with traveling on the subway.
