My town library has a wireless network in place. They want to relocate an existing USB printer connected to a PC to another location that's far away from any PCs. So connecting the printer to PC via a very long USB cable is not a great solution. The printer does not support WiFi only USB.

The only solution I see is to use a Wireless Print Server. Does anyone have recommendations? From reading a few reviews, these devices seem quirky and may not always work with every printer.

Besides a wireless print server, any other solutions?

It's not very clear on your question if this printer supports Wi-Fi. Could you please edit it? – A Dwarf Sep 25 '09 at 2:34
Clarified based on your suggestion. – Sajee Sep 25 '09 at 14:53

Based on my experience with WPS, Linksys make great products and I never had any issue with their WPS equipement.

I recommend you to check the WPSM54G that does a great job! Already installed a few for clients and it always work out straight out of the box with minimals configurations.

Check it out :
