i have a g4 imac running 10.2.8 and am going to buy a windows laptop for my wife. i want to keep the imac hardwired to my dsl modem for internet and setup the laptop for wireless. i also want to share a printer. if i have to do the entire network between the imac, laptop, and printer wirelessly, i'll do it. but, i would like to save some money too. what do i need to buy to have everything up and running out of the box. i don't want my wife to have to wait for days to use her laptop online without a printer.

Look into a wireless router with a built in print server.
