Hooking HP 8500 AIO to Belkin G router

Belkin G wireless router

Specs: Windows 7 Premiun 64 Bit
I purchased a HP 8500 Pro wired printer. I want to hook it to a Belkin G router to use it wirelessly. Problem is my computers are wireless and I use a Belkin N router to connect these to the internet via a Clearwire modem which is also wireless. Will this confuse the computers or can I somehow accomplish this all through one router?

You would connect the printer wired to the belkin, assign it a static ip address and then configure the hosts to print to it via lpr [tcp/ip] printing.

wanderer, I'am a novice at best, I would connect the printer to the Belkin "G" router and assign it an IP address? Then on our laptops assign them to print to that IP address??? [tcp/ip] tcp????/ip=ip address

This should be covered in the printers manual. This is a standard and well known procedure for configuring the printers builtin print server.

On the client you create a new tcp/ip port with the printers ip. You install the printer to use that port.

Are you sure it is not wireless?

It's not, I was under the same impression that they all were wireless but that's not the case. It's the Primier units that are wireless product codes A909g and A909n not A909a. Thanks anyway!
