I have a HP LaserJet 4050 T and a Belkin Wireless N+ Router. I'd like to make my printer available on the network. I've looked at both HP's and Belkin's website, and I've not found the information I need.

I've got a few Windows (XP, Vista and 7) computers and a Mac and iPad. I'd like to ideally get an IP address assigned to the printer so I can take things from there.

What setting must I enable in the router? the printer?

Would this question do better on ServerFault? – Moshe Dec 7 '10 at 5:25
@Moshe: No, this is a simple question about sharing a printer in a home-network, which fits IMO better on SU then SF. Also, does the printer have a built-in printserver? – Bobby Dec 7 '10 at 8:32
@Bobby: No "N" in the HP printer model means no built-in print server. – Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Dec 7 '10 at 8:32
@Ignacio - There is no N in the model number. – Moshe Dec 7 '10 at 8:34
Yes, I saw it.​ – Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Dec 7 '10 at 8:36

You'll need a print server, either an external one or an EIO print server such as the JetDirect 620n.
