    I have a Macbook running Mac OS X 10.5.4, a Linksys WRT54G wireless router, a HP Laserjet 1022, and a HP wireless printing upgrade kit. The wireless router is working great, all my computers are hooked up and running well. I used my ancient PC to set up the wireless printing for the Laserjet. It works as long as I use the cheesy little USB adapter. So then I went through the process of adding the Laserjet to my existing network. I found my router (using the PC and the HP software) and used my passkey to gain access.

    Now I have no idea how to make my Macs find the wireless printer. Do I need to leave the PC on and that adapter sticking out of the side? I also have a DLink printer router I can set up via the PC. Does anyone make software to wirelessly print for a Mac?

    Thanks,

    Bryan

    Ah ha. I clearly wasn't paying attention and didn't realize all that other info was available. Dang, it looks like my main computer has to be on all the time for it to work.

    Thanks,
