New to this site but can help people who want to print through their wireless laptop.
1. get the IP address of the system to which the Printer is connected if it is shared through a system connected to Router (Dont forget to share the printer)
2. In the wireless laptop please use the search option and search for "computers on the network" (Option in Windows XP). Enter the IP address of the system which is connected to the router and printer both. You will find the system you are looking for. double click the system appeared in the search box. You will find the shared printer. Install the drivers and you are all set to print wireless.
I have a linux router/firewall that I built myself that is connected to a cable modem. Off of the linux firewall I have it it connected to a simple 10baseT hub. Rather than go through all the trouble of finding a wireless card and the drivers for the linux machine I would like to buy a simple access point that I can connect the 10baseT hub.
What is a good cheap access point that I could use in this configuration that anyone would recommend?

I have kind of the same question. How do I get my wireless access points (linksys 4 port routers)to work with my existing router (2wire router configured within an internal network -- block of addresses 192.168.x.1 -- 192.168.x.255 that are routed to a static ip)? Note: I want the wireless router to be able provide internet services but not internal network services (the wireless would be for visitors). Please help!!
I have a 3com Home Network Ethernet Hub 10mbps with connections to 1 x xp and 2 x 98se systems, one of which controls internet access through a broadband modem. I have a laptop with xp that I have been wiring into the hub and it works fine. However, it came with a 11g usb adapter and I would like to use that sometimes.
The Linksys Wireless-G Access Point is pretty cheap at £30 and the specs seem fine:
* IEEE Draft 802.11g Supports Data Rates up to 54Mbps
* Backwards Compatible with Existing IEEE 802.11b Devices
* Setup Wizard for Easy Installation
* Supports 64/128-bit WEP Encryption
* Built-in Web-based Utility for Easy Configuration from any Web Browser
* Firmware Upgradeable through Web Browser
* Supports Wireless Bridging, MAC Address Filtering, and Event Logging
* Set up a high-speed Wireless-G (draft 802.11g) network in your home or office
* Data rates up to 54Mbps -- 5 times faster than Wireless-B (802.11b)
* Also interoperates with Wireless-B networks (at 11Mbps)
* Advanced wireless security with 128-bit
Can you comment on this combination?

I've got a cable modem cannecting by wire to a DLink DI604 router. This in turn is connected to my PC by wire. All working fine & get the net. I also have a WAG302 access point connected to the wired router.
The router is doing just fine assigning IP addresses to the PC & the AP. I also have an xbox360 with which I want to communicate wirelessly via the AP. So here's the problem..
The xbox can see the AP & it can see it. in the log on the AP I can see that it's authenticated the device.
In turn, the router sees that there is a new device and lists the mac address of the xbox, but in the log on the router the DHCP server has not leased an IP to it.
I'm guessing that the AP is not passing the xbox through to the router, or if it is, the router isn't seeing that it needs to assign it an IP. I've tried fixing static IP's and everything & I just can't get the xbox to connect to the pc :(
