Here is the situation: Upstairs is my trusty HP LaserJet 5L laser printer. It has a parallel port connection (no USB). My wireless router is also located upstairs, near this printer. Downstairs (usually) is my PowerBook, from which I'd like to be able to print to the laser printer. What I think I would like to do is attach the laser printer to a network printer server (hanging off of that wireless router) and then just set it up as network printer under Mac OS X. The problem is that I'm getting confused about the various printing protocols and having trouble figuring out which printer servers (if any) will be compatible with the Mac. For example, one network printer server that looks good to me is Netgear's PS101 Mini Print Server. Plug it into the printer's parallel port, hook it up to the router, and we're in business. But when I review its list of supported printing methods, I only see "PTP (Peer-to-Peer) and SMB over TCP/IP and NetBEUI protocols, Windows LPD printing". As far as I can tell, these are not supported connection types for the Mac OS X Print Center, which I believe supports USB, AppleTalk and LPR printing (right?) Hopefully, my ignorance about this subject is abundantly clear by now. Could someone with more of a clue please give me some ideas about what my options are, and how best to proceed?
