There are some other wireless routers that have printer sharing, and I think they should pretty much work across the board between Macs and PCs. Another alternative would be to share the printer from one computer, but that can be a pain.

Peter - yes, I had all firmware updates on router and client devices and had read up on several forums with multiple settings and solutions suggested. I just could not get everything to work reliably. I tinkered for over two weeks before I admitted defeat and switched to the Linksys.

Argon - I think most modern NAS boxes or routers with print sharing will work fine cross platform. Compatibility is always getting better. Sharing from a computer directly may also work but is less friendly solution.

Another option is a print server. I used to have one and I recall setting it up initially was a bit of a pain, but it worked great once it was running. I'm not sure if that's the state of the art anymore.
