    Just dropped embarq internet and now get internet through a verizon hotspot (love the speed). But I have a major networking problem. I have been told that i have to still connect my printer to my computer through my linksys E2000 router so I now have 2 networks on my computer. I run a business from home and trying to switch from one network to another one to print and one to search the web and send e-mails is a real pain in my [email protected]@. Can someone please tell me how this problem can be fixed I can now go on like this. thanks in advance.

    Do you connect to the Verizon hotspot via Wi-Fi? If so, you can simultaneously connect to the router by ethernet or by another wireless adapter.

    Most printers these days can connect by USB to a computer. That is not the case with your printer? What's the brand and model?

    My printer is a Kodak 6150. I do not want to connect it with wires. I want to find a way to be able to connect the printer to my computer wirelessly, but from what I have been told I have to make sure it is on the same network as my internet hotspot. If it is not printing and surfing the web can not be done at the same time.

    The Verizon hotspot is a router to which you connect by Wi-Fi, correct? If so, you can also connect the printer to it or you can use another wireless adapter with your computer to connect to the other router (or maybe directly to the printer via ad-hoc wireless).
