I've recently bought a Linksys WRT54GS wireless router and setup was really easy to get through, but I was wondering if I could do things like share my printer across the wireless network so people can access it when they connect? This'd be a pretty useful feature, could someone help?

Is the printer wireless? Connected to the computer or the router?

open control panel, open printers and faxes, right click the printer select sharing. select share this printer. this works for me!
You might have to add the printer first. (control panel, printers and faxes, Add a printer, select network printer)
I don't have a wireless printer but it is setup in the wireless network wizard.
