Or you could buy an apple airport express for $150 and its a wireless 802.11n base station with print server and airtunes that lets you stream from itunes to you stereo (if you plug your stereo into the headphone port on the airport express) the airport extreme is the next step up and has more functions (but no airtunes) but its nearly twice the price. You dont need a mac to use these things, pc software is supplied i think

Some printers such as mine (HP C4280 or something) has 802.11g built in. Easy to configure and complies with security WPA etc.

If you already have a wireless router then you could just buy a cheap print server (non wireless) and plug that into the wireless router. That will work. I bought a Belkin print server on TM for $20. Works perfectly.

Windows Live OneCare works perfectly with your printer to be used wirelessly for all computers.

The DLINK DI-524UP wireless router has a USB print server port.
