Hi,
I just bought the linksys wireless-g printserver to make my HP Laserjet 4100 networked. I was wondering if it would be possible to make it a remote printer as well since I am out of the house a lot. I also have two networks, so in order to print I constantly have to switch the network I am on to print. It would be greatly appreciated if anyone has an idea?

Maybe it's possible with a softwareware like Hamachi (link).
Its free. I've only used it for games though, but I guess it should work.

While the filesharing is cool, the thing that impressed me the most was being able to print to the network printers in my basement (both the laser and the desktop inkjet) from anywhere I'm online. I was able to map the printers as "Remote Laser" and "Remote Inkjet" and can now print to home as easily as I print to anywhere more local. Very cool way to get paper copies of useful articles home without having to drag the paper around.

Thanks,
I was reading about this program when I realized that I have a VPN as well. Turns out all I have to do is press the print button while connected to the VPN and it works. Thanks for the advice, it really helped.
