There is supposedly a firmware upgrade available that extends the functions of the usb port so the short answer is "maybe"

My best suggestion is to check out the actiontek web site. Also you should try access the setting page (http://192.168.1.1) and see what options are available within the router itself for USB

Is the user manual

Actiontec GT704WGB from Verizon is working through Earthlink yet Verizon still thinks it is providing service and want to set up my "account"

Sounds like you have Verizon software on your computer. The router has nothing to do with that. Go into control panel > add remove programs and remove the Verizon software.

My DHCP is not assigning a dynamic address to one of my seven wired devices. I've had to switch over to a stati

On the second router just plug a port cable in from your main routers port into the wan port and then be sure to change the second routers gateway and IP address to a different number. Say that your main router IP is 198.18.1.1 and for your second router IP you could use 10.10.10.1 or what ever combo you want and then you should be able to use both routers together. Is this what you are trying to do?
Linksys routers as well as all routers with DHCP enabled should be able to handle up to 255 separate IP address's for a LAN network. Is the firmware of the Linksys the latest? If not, down load the latest firmware and flash the router to update it. Or, check out third party firmwares like Tomato to flash that tired Linksys and turn it into a real router.

Wireless Internet Issues

USERNAME:admin
PASSWORD:password or password1

That is the default user/pass, if it has been changed from default, you will have to reset the router and then use the defaults I gave.

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 :-)
