Can WRT54G use WPA and WEP at the same time?

I used to have a smc 802.11b wireless router and a dlink 802.11b wireless print server.
 
In order to have WPA and a firewall, I replaced the wireless router with a linksys WRT54G.
 
Then I realize the dlink print server, even though it has the "g" keyword in the model name, does not do WPA (DP-G321).
 
Do I have to buy a 802.11g wireless print server? Or is there another solution?
 
I don't supposed the linksys router can do both WPA and WEP at the same time?
 
Connecting the print server to the router with a cable is not feasible. They are on different floors.

both of your devices are has a wireless b technology settings, just set a wep encryption on your network rather than wpa because some wireless b devices don;t work with wpa. with regards to your query if wep and wpa can be used at the same time, the answer is no.

if you want the print server to have a WPA encryption..you can go for a linksys wireless print server...
