      Question Wireless noob - help needed

      I've managed to set up the wireless network in our house (one pc wired to the router, the wife's laptop connected wirelessly). I've just bought a new laptop to replace the desktop pcand was wondering, do I actually have to have a pc connected physically to the router, or can I just have the 2 laptops connected wirelessly? If this is possible, I was looking at this -

      Netgear PS121 USB ethernet network print server on eBay, also, Print Servers, Printer Paper Accessories, Computing (end time 10-Feb-08 17:30:00 GMT)

      Would this let me acces my printer (an Epson Stylus Photo R240) from either laptop without being physically plugged in to them?

      Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

      or can I just have the 2 laptops connected wirelessly?
      Yes if you wanted to.

      As for the Printserver, yes it should do. The other other option is to share the printer, if it is plugged into one laptop all the time. It would have to be connected to the router by ethernet though.

      I don't know if you noticed, Condition: Netgear factory refurbished

      Brilliant - thanks for the quick reply!

      I've bought from that Ebay seller before & everything has been spot on, so I'll give it a go.

      Thanks again.
