Hi guys. Ok i want to connect a printer to my wireless network so i can print from my desktop or laptop if either are turned off. I have a Netgear DG834GT 108mps ADSL modem router.It has no usb ports, just 4 ethernet ports. I have two printers i could use. I have a HP psc 1110 all-in-one with only a small square usb port and a Dell photo 924 with the same usb port. Can these be connected to my router? Do i need a Print Server?

It is not possible to do what you want without a Wireless USB Print Server. This device will connect to the USB port on your printer and share it over the wireless network. It should also allow the scanner function of the all in one printer to work also.

There is a compromise that involves nothing new, and that is that you attach the printer to the desktop PC and share the printer on the network. If you do this the printer will be accessible to both computers, only when the desktop PC is turned on.
