So as I understand it you have:

->WRT54G -> wife's laptop
Cable Modem -> SMC Gateway device -|
->WRT54G -> ubuntu,printer

I'm a little unclear on what your "SMC Gateway device" is or what it is 
doing.  It's important to understand that all of these devices may be 
functioning as gateway, routers, dhcp servers, firewalls,switches.   The 
easiest thing to do is to plug one router into the cable modem buy a 
plain switch and ebay the rest.  This will allow you to print from any 
device on your network.
