I have a new Dell’s laptop which I was able to configure to use the wireless WRT54GS router to access the DSL modem to go to the Internet. This works fine.
Now I want to add the printer to the fry.
What do I have to do – in as many detail and possible – to add this printer to the router in order to be able to print from my laptop (wirelessly) to the printer?
I am new to networking and wireless networking, so any help (in easy step-by-step format preferably) would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for the lead.
However, does it mean that I have to have multi PC/Laptop environment – and that one of these PC/Laptop machines has to link to the Printer?
If yes then it is not for me. I have a laptop, a wireless router and a printer.
How do I piece this together?

Model of your printer and the Model of your wireless router are important issues. First of all set printer with the router . If your router recognize the printer wirelessly only then you can print from your laptop or PC.

I had to register to let people know of an issue I've encountered with the PSUS4 printserver. I've been fighting it for the last week to no avail. Rebooted my entire system countless times only to find out that the printserver was not showing up on my network. Then it hit me. The printserver was quite hot and the RJ45 LED going to my WRT54G wireless router was flashing intermittently.
I disconnected the PSUS4 and put it in front of my AC vent for 2 minutes. When I plugged it back in, it was perfectly functional. There must be a heating issue with the hardware, though I've owned it for several years for this to happen only now. I did however upgrade the firmware only last November. For some odd reason it seems to have started from that point on.
Anybody else have this similar issue?? The heat, the flashing LED???

interesting. i've just been dealing with the same problem. my psus4 has been working great for 5-6 years. then it just stopped. it was very hot. it would appear and dissapear from the bi-admin utility. and pinging it was not always successfull. i will cool it down and see if that helps.
do you use a static ip, or dhcp? is one way better than the other?
