How do I connect Belkin Wireless Print Server to an Accesspoint ?

We have a wireless internet connection to our company. Netcomm 3G router and this is connected to the switch. We have two accesspoints. One providing wireless network access for few laptops in the office. and the other one in the factory side. distance 500 metres.

We have a dell workstation with Wireless card in a remote location where there are no data ports. A dell 1710 printer is connected as a standalone printer to this wireless desktop system.

I would like to make this standalone printer to a network enabled printer ( wireless). So I connected this Belkin wireless print server to the Printer.
My problem:
This print server is not able to conect to the accesspoint ( D-Link airplus xtremeG DWL-2100AP). Whereas the desktop system is able to connect to this accesspoint and working great. Please explain me how should I connect this print server with the accesspoint.

Any help on this much appreciated. Belkin tech support has not been a great help to me.

I would think you normally "hard code" an IP for the print server instead of letting the router/access point give it out on the fly. From there they device can be routed to in the printer setup for your machine(s).

Just a check, is this Belkins Bluetooth print server? If it is, it only "talks" to bluetooth devices.
