Decided to give wireless printing one more shot. Picked up a LinkSys WPS54GU2 at Wal Mart. Went though all the set up all looked good. Could not get a test page to print. Called LinkSys Support.....Oh My goodness..it is not compatible with my printer. My printer is not on their compatible printer list!!!! Now I could understand that if I had an "ACME" printer ...but this is an HP Deskjet 3600. Very Common. Jeez get in the real world people!!!!!

Bah..you just got a lazy tech. It should work perfectly. I am assuming it came with software to add a port to the printer? Probably need to do this. Assign an ip address somehow to the print server. Install software on your computer. Install printer driver on computer, and specify to use a linksys port to connect to.
