I am using a Netgear ProSafe Wireless Firewall/Print Server FWG114P ver. 2.  I only want to use the router to print through.  I have 92 laptops (I use Ghost) that all run WinXP Pro that need to print to an HP LaserJet 2200.  The laptop connects to the router with a patch cord, the router is connected to the printer via usb.  I can I print to the printer using the router?  Do I have to change the IP address in the printer properties of the laptops?

Yes, that printer is compatible with that router. On the laptops, if the printer was not installed, you set it up as a local printer (not networked) and create a new port (standard tcp/ip). If the laptops were already connecting to the printer through a share, then you may be able to just change the printer properties, depending on how they were originally setup. It may be easier just to install it as a new printer on each, then delete the "old printer" icon.

Printer installation is covered in the Reference Manual, chapter 7.
