We are running a small office where we have 2 computers with Linksys Wiresell Router sharing internet and network.
Now we are getting a printer which we need to set up far from these computer. There is no way we can put any cable between printer and computer. is it possible to buy a wireless print server and setup such a way that both computer can print from it.
Printer also cant be connected from wireless router. Printer is HP laserjet printer and USB port on it. if we can setup wireless router how can we configure it without accessing to computer? Please help me

Yes, there is an 10/100 interface port on this...

 A standard auto-sensing 10/100Mbps interface is also available for trouble-free wired network installation.

So configure it with the ethernet port, then plug in your printer after the configuration...

Sorry I would have added more detail to the first reply....

Do I have to buy something for our desktop computer so it can recognize wireless signal. Currently one computer is directly connecting with Lynsys router with ethernet wire.

Nope just another wire (RJ-45 Ethernet Cable) to the linksys router... and you will be able to share the printer....
