Hi there,

Here is the equipment I have:

- Home PC (P4, 1GHz, network card, etc)
- Belkin wireless F5D-7230-4 router
- SpeedTouch ADSL modem
- HP LaserJet 4050 printer with Jetdirect network card
- ASUS laptop (wireless, network card, etc)

Current setup:

The Belkin wireless router is connected to the Speedtouch modem,
My PC is connected to the internet via the Belkin router (CAT5).
My laptop is connected to the internet via the Belkin router (wireless).
The HP4050 printer is connected to the PC via the paralel port.

What I want to achieve:

I'd like to connect my HP4050 printer to the Belkin wireless router (via CAT5), so that my desktop and laptop can print independently. Rather than share the printer via my desktop.

Is that possible?
