I have a wireless network up and running. I have a second printer which I want to use in a spot where i can't run a wire. A wireless print server would work, but it's not a USB printer and all the wireless print servers seem to be USB only. I have a "wired" ethernet print server. Can I put a second access router in the remote spot, hook a network cable between it and the print server and be able to use the second printer? Again, I can't get a cable between the primary access point and the printer location.

As long as the second access point is on the same subnet as your other computers ( getting an IP from the main router) and the print server is supplied with an IP in that same subnet, then there should be no problem. A print server is the same thing as a computer so far as networking is concerned. In other words, either only 1 DHCP server on the network, or all devices supplied with IP's in the same subnet.
