I have a LaserJet P2055dn printer (Jet Direct networking printer). It is unreasonable to connect directly to my router. How do I configure the printer network connection and my computers (a Windows 7 PC and a Windows Vista PC) to use the printer through a WiFi Access Point?

The printer has an rj45 port it is network enabled thus I bought an Ethernet enabled (RJ45) connected Access Point to use the Network port on the printer. I know I will have to connect the access point to my computer to configure it. I wanted to know if I set the printer's address to the address of the Access Point or to the address the Access Point assigns the printer. If I understand your first post I set my computer to the access point address to print.

OK, I'm supposed to use the address the Access Point assigns to the printer. Will that address show up on the network forward of the Access Point? I know I will be able to see the Access Point IP at the router or in a network diagram. If possible, I plan to give the Access Point a static IP and then set the printer to a static IP, too. Do you recommend I NOT set these IP addresses to a static IP or is static OKAY? Another point I need some clarification on is that I used the direct connect (FULL) printer driver on my computers. Do I need to delete this driver and install the basic driver instead?
