[Wireless] Linksys Router - WRT54G2 - Wireless Printing?

I have a Canon MX700 printer (not wireless), and a Linksys Router – WRT54G2. I’m trying to setup the printer on a wireless network so it can print via mobile devices (ie. MacBook, iPad and iPhone). I’ve gotten to the point that the printer LAN has the following details:
IP address:
Subnet mask:
Default gateway:
MAC address: 00:00:85:C6:3E:06
MAC address filtering: Off
IP address filtering: Off

The IP Configuration for the router’s Network Connection has the following setting:
Physical address: 00-16-76-C2-18-4E
DHCP enable: Yes
Autoconfiguration enable: Yes
IP Address:
Subnet mask:
Default gateway:
DHCP Server:
DNS Servers:

I’ve setup the printer on the MacBook OS X ver. 10.5.8; the General settings for the printer are:
Queue name: _192_168_1_114
Host name: localhost
Driver version:
URL: lpd://

The most I’m getting out of the printer from the MacBook are test pages, from the printer’s utility.

I’m lost as far as what to do next, I’ve looked on line and nothing seems to help. ANY SUGGESTION OR DIRECTIONS, please.

The only way to print from an iPad or iPhone is via an app. There are a bunch out there that do different things. None of them are that great. Honestly, with the price of printers, I just bought an Airprint compatible printer. The Macbook should be able to print if you have the correct driver loaded.

Go out and BUY a copy of Fingerprint - 19$


Allows ANY printer to print on a wireless network via AirPrint from ANY Idevice.
Works GREAT, simple to install and its a supported piece of software.

I run it on my Imac and have installed it on other networks on Windows boxes.
Nothin' left to do but smile smile smile
