details: linksys wireless hub with which my HPlaser jet 5m with a HPjetdirect card is plugged into. we also have an at&t wireless router. id like to marry the two, router and hub, so users can print while connected to the internet. also, my wife logs into her work via a vpn account using the at&t router, this setup causes her to have to disconnect from her VPN and reconnect to the linksys when she needs to print. is there a way to make the wireless printer available for her even though she is connected to her company? note: i have only one phone line that the at&t wireless router is attached to and there is no other space for the printer. the phone, lan line, is attached to a base with wireless phones around the home. the phone line is split with a filter from at&t. the router is perched on top of the dresser that everyone can get to. Thanks.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

All you need to do here is plug the Linsys hub into the at&t router.
I’m not sure of the model, so am not sure if on the Linsys side you have DHCP setp, or
if you have hard coded IP addresess on each item connected to it.
If it is DHCP, turn this function off. Once connected to the router, the DHCP range set up
on this will pass through to the hub allowing the same IP address range on both networks

Alternatively try to remove the Linsys altergether, assuming coverage is OK, and just have everything
connected to the router. I take it you have already tried this, however.

O, you may need a crossover RJ45 cable to go between the hub and router if the ports
aren’t auto negotiating, or you don’t have an uplink port which is switchable.

As far as your wife, what VPN client? If using native windows client, check the properties of the connection, on the networking tab, check properties of tcp/ip, click advanced, and clear “use default settings of remote gateway”, see if she can print
