    I have recently installed a wireless home network system. I'm using the Linksys WRT54G router. I have Comcast Cable internet. My desktop is hooked to the router by cable and my two laptops are hooked wirelessly. I have a Canon i850 color printer hooked by USB cabel to my desktop. What I want to know is there a way that I can get my two laptops to print through that printer over the wireless connection?

    Sure, just share the printer on the desktop and you can print to it from any machine on the network.

    Yes you can if you already have a network setup,
    On the pc that the printer is hooked up to, go to control panel, click on printers and share the printer, this should give access for the laptops.
