there are several "print servers" that you can buy for netgear, linksys, etc. (recommend netgear). some are wifi and some are eth, take your pick. i think they run about $50 or so, haven't checked in a couple months. another solution that takes a little work is if you have another computer (an older windoz box) on a home network, hook up the printer to that and share it over the network. i'm working on using this solution with my own printer, a BJC2000.

(added 11SEP2003) just remembered, some printers manufacturers carry lpt to usb adapters, i hear that they are expensive though...

wish you luck
