I know little or nothing about networking, so please bear that in mind...
I've got a 3Com router to which two laptops connect wirelessly and a desktop and a printer connect via a LAN cable. I have a second printer (QMS 2300DL colour printer) which I want to make available over this small network, but it's too far away from the router to cable, so I thought about connecting it wirelessly.
I know there are wireless print servers available, but do not understand how this is going to work. Does the wireless print server become a second network, or will the print server connect to the 3Com router, just like the laptops do? If it sets up a second network, I presume I won't be able to access the printer from the cabled desktop, is that correct? Also, how would the laptops connect - do I end up with two network connections?
What I really want is to be able to wirelessly connect the 2300DL to the existing router. Is that possible?
Sorry it's a bit of a basic question.
