Wife's machines run either win xp pro or mac book with latest mac os..
Topology is ethernet
Comcast cable >> SMC device >> wrt54g >> wireless access to win xp pro
and mac book laptops
>> wrtp54g >> 2 port vonage phone
>> 3 ports serving 1
win xp pro machine and 2 ubuntu 9.04 boxes..
>For any recent Ubuntu where you have HP printers, the first
>thing you should do is get the latest HPLIP package from HP
>(ver. 3.9.4b). The current Ubuntu version is 3.9.2-3ubuntu4.
>It has several defects which upgrading appears to solve. One
>of those is the lack of a PPD for my printer.
>It installs easily even without the debian package.
>If your printer has its own wireless access (mine does) you
>might set that up and make it a node on your wireless network.
>Mind the security implications.
