Hi you can get a wireless print server or if you get a wired print server and connect it hardwired to the router, then that would do the job. I do not have an Epsom printer but i do have a Brother Laser Priner with a network port (model 2070n) and i use a HP printer again with a network port. I have both connected to my Belkin wireless router via the 4 lan connections on the back of the router. The reason I sugest this is due to the router being able to be placed anywhere in the house, ear to a phone socket. I hope this helps

Hi here is how I did it,bought an Edimax PS-1206MF print server connected ethernet cable to the server then to my voyager 2110,usb cable from MFPrinter to server installed drivers and software from CD that came with server,did not work at first after some research and messing with settings I uninstalled the drivers and software thinking the drivers were not for vista,downloaded the application for vista from the Edimax web site now everything works fine,printing wirelessly from my laptop anyware to my Epson stylus RX500 photo,hope this helps others with wireless printing.
