wireless print server question

  1. hi, after recent networking troubles, i'm thinking of tossing my Linksys router which has been nothing but trouble, and updating to a Belkin Wireless Pre N router. Now my question is, do i need to buy a wireless print server seperately from this for my printer? or can i run the printer wirelessly by connecting it to the router somehow. The product information for the new router is a bit complicated for a techno-ignoramus like me, and it says 'with the Belkin Wireless Pre-N Router as the central network connection point, your connected computers are able to share a broadband Internet connection and networked peripherals such as hard drives, printers, CD_ROMS etc." So that just confuses me as to what they mean. I have a parallel port printer. Advice much appreciated.

    Going from Linksys to Belkin is a definite downgrade..

    If your router brochure doesn't say that it can act as a print server then that's exactly how it is. You can buy a separate print server box for your printer or just share the printer from one of your computers.
