I was not aware that the wireless router could connect to another wireless router. I like your idea. I'll put a wireless router upstairs and a hardwire from it down to the printer. Thanks!

comment How to diagnose computer freezing problem
@reinerpost: So it is conceivable that the disk sort of locks up, suddenly. The system is able to work with anything it already has loaded into memory, but no disk i/o is possible post lockup. Try the livecd.

@Cerberus: With the livecd, the memory is used for that function, or for swap in the case of Linux.
