Wireless print server

I have a Netgear WGPS606. In order for this to work on my wireless network, does it have to be permanently connected to a PC (Laptop or Desktop). I assumed when I bought it that once I had configured it, I could plug the printer into it and that any wireless devices connected to the network would be able to print over the wifi to the printer without the print server being plugged into one of the PCs

Thanks

no, you only need to connect it directly to a pc in order to set it up using the web-based config tool

broadband - wireless router - cable connected pc's
                                          - wgps606 wireless prt svr + more connected pc's to extend your network

you do have to run the Add Printer Wizard on each pc after you configure the print server name & printer name, by adding a network printer & specifying \\prtsvrnam\prtrnam
