Big step: going wireless! Anyone help please?
Our set up: =93Talk-talk=94 broadband from phone line via modem to wireless capable DeskTop running =93XP=94, connected to HP1220C printer (non Post Script), and Canon scanner. Three family wireless capable Laptops running =93XP=94 and the orrible =93Vista=94. Would like to connect modem, printer, scanner, external hard drive and possibly DeskTop, by cable to router, and have access to them from Laptops.
Have seen =93ASUS WL-600g=94 router which combines a printer server, but it seems that HP 1220C is not included in compatible printers list, nor does it seem possible to run a scanner from it. Is this the case please? Is there an alternative router that would?
At the moment, the power for all items is through a =93One Click=94 switched adaptor so that when the DeskTop is turned off, the power to all items (excluding the Laptops of course) is turned off. Would it be possible to arrange for this to happen when the router was turned off, or would one have to re-setup the network whenever the router was turned back on?
