    my girl just bought a new printer with networking capability (hard wired), but she can only use wireless in her house (dsl modem w/ wireless router is on one side of house, 2 computers are on other side of house). how would i connect the printer to the network? would i use a wireless access point or wireless bridge? or would it be easier to use a gaming adapter?

    thanks in advance

    I have a cheap $10 belkin router here that you can change the settings to act as a wireless access point. I don't know if an access point would work for this though.

    why not just plug the printer in to a computer and use that computer as a print server? sure that computer would always need to be on, but it's what I do.
