My current setup:
Two desktops and one laptop running WinXP, and one laptop running WinVista. There is a router where I connect to my ISP (local wireless system), that runs to an eight-port switch. Both desktops are connected to the switch. There is also a wireless router connected to the switch to provide wireless connectivity for the laptops. Everything works as intended, no issues.
What I want to do:
I'm trying to add a print server to this setup so all computers can access a single printer. My problem is, the wireless router won't let me, with "standard" settings, run IP addresses in the same range on both the LAN and WAN sides. The WAN side is in the range of 192.168.0.x, and the LAN is in the range of 192.168.1.x. Nothing on the LAN side can "see" anything on the WAN side, and vice-versa. So, I can either plug the print server into the switch and print only from the desktops, or plug it into the LAN side of the wireless router and print only from the laptops. What can I do to get around this problem? If it matters, the wireless router is a Netgear WGR614, and the print server is an AirLink APSUSB201. I am by no means a networking expert (I wouldn't be asking this question if I were, would I?), but I do know more than most common people about networking and computers in general. Assume I know enough about networking to get myself in a bind, and go from there.
