    My entire network is wirelessly connected to a Linksys WRT54G router. I have many XP machines, but only two 98 machines. I have a printer with a wireless print server attached to it, and it is linked to the router. (The printer is setup as a client through the router by using a print server as all the other PC's are, in other words.)

    I was able to install the printer driver onto all the XP machines, and then print over the network wirelessly.

    I am not able to install the printer driver onto the 98 machines, because it doesn't give me the option to browse for a network printer. The only options I get are to install from disk, and then when I do, I have the option of configuring the printers ports (Either COM1, LPT1, or Print Spool).

    Do any of you have any suggestions on how I can get these machines working with the printer?

    Thanks,
    Brooks

    If anyone has any suggestions, or knows of any 3rd party software that would allow me to do this, please help.
