    Printing via wireless router


    Hi

    I'm very new to Linux. I'm trying to install a printer on my laptop but am having difficulty.

    I'm running FC7. The printer is an HP LaserJet 3200, which is connected directly to a wireless router, the router acting as the print server.

    I've read lots of articles about Samba, CUPS etc, but I don't know which one I should be using and how to set it up.

    Hope someone can help.

    Thanks

    In this case I think CUPS is what you want to use. Set the router to give the printer a static (permanent) IP address. Then set up CUPS to connect to that address as a network printer.
