Hi
I currently have an ADSL modem and wireless router hard wired to a PC and wirelessly connected to a laptop, I also have a USB printer connected to the PC, could I connect another router(with a USB print server connection) to the existing router and access the printer that way, means I don't need to have the PC on to print from the laptop

Is it OK to have 2 routers conntected to each other or am I playing with fire?

Thanks

I have two routers connected together and it works OK. Only thing to be aware of is that you only want one of the routers to be assigning IP addresses.
