I wouldn't recommend getting a router with a USB print server. From personal experience, these rarely work with mac OS X. Your best luck is plugging in the printer to one of your macs and using the sharing feature on it.smiles101 said:I was hoping somebody could recommend an ethernet router to connect 2 macs (cable modem internet) with usb printer possibility....the more research i do, the more confused and scared I get!
Problem with WPA is some hardware doesn't support it, only WEP. (like the Nintendo DS which is one of the devices I use on my WiFi network)apfhex said:It's a better idea to enable WPA.
I could be wrong, but you should be able to access the admin on the router by pointing your browser to http://192.168.1.1 and login in as user "admin" and password "admin" (if not try administrator as the user). As said above *change the default password immediately*.

More than likely your ISP will be DHCP (dynamic). So, I would setup your outside interface that way. I don't use Linksys stuff but I'd guess that it was setup that way by default. If that does not work, then you'll have to call to get your IP info if you don't know it or have it written down somewhere.smiles101 said:I received my Linksys router BEFSR41 and I'm lost....I can't even figure out if my internet provider address is a static or a dynamic one and I can't access the linskys router's web based utility http://192.168.1.1/...is that because I haven't hooked up or plugged in the router yet? any help would be much appreciated.
