Wireless printer pro's help needed!
I've got a wired printer, an HP something something with USB Cable, connected to my PC (Dell desktop) I've also got a macbook and i want to be able to print with my macbook. (i'm getting sick of sending word-files to my own email-adress so i can print them from the pc) I've read some things on the internet but they all say i need to plug my printers usb into my router. The problem is my router (Linksys WRT160N) doesn't have a usb opening. So how can i get my printer to print wirelessly?

Thanks for the help!

You enable file/print sharing on your Desktop and network the printer.


This TCP/IP Home Networking and File Sharing Tutorial should get you started.
