I have 40 megabit service through my cable company. The modem they
provided has wireless capability. The combination of the modem being
in a closet and the wireless not being all that great led me to run
two CAT5 lines: 1) to my main computer; 2) to a central location in
the house where I've installed another network.
My problem: when I'm printing from my main computer, the print signal
is going through the router provided by my cable company. I don't
want to have two wireless networks up and going. Is there a way to
either: 1) setup my main computer to route print jobs to the new
router; or 2) setup my cable company router to send all print jobs to
my new router (since it's obviously plugged directly into the cable
Thanks in advance for any assistance.
