I have a two router home network. How can I print from to network ? My setup is as follows: ISP Cable modem to Linksys wireless router#1 ( The One I Use) to 16 port Switch to Linksys Wireless Router#2 ( Childrens Router). I installed 2nd Router for my children's Internet access so that I could lock down Access Times and attempt to filter out Porn from their computers by keywords. Everything seems to be working GREAT and I would like to leave my currently installed printers at their current locations. One of the Printers is plugged into the Switch (HP p2015dn) and the other (Brother MFC 6490-CW) is connected wirelessly to Linksys#1 and is mostly used for scanning to .pdf and as a Fax machine but is used occasionally if the kids need to print something out in color for school. On Network 1 ( 150 ) are wired: My Desktop, Wife's Desktop, WD My Book Net Drive, TiVo, HP Printer Wireless: Brother Printer, My Laptop, Wife's Laptop, 2 Cell Phones. On Network 2 ( 145 ) are wired: 3 sons Desktops Wireless: 2 sons Laptops, Wii, Playstation 3, XBox360, 2 Kindle Fire's, 2 Cell Phones and their friends Laptops / Cell Phones as they show up. The easiest solution may be to buy another printer and put it on the kids network but I'm a retired Marine and not used to taking the easy way out if possible I'd like to be able to do it through networking. I hope that I've provided enough information so that someone smarter than me can provide me guidance

I appologize for wasting your time. I was attempting to do some research since setting the new router up last night for the Childrens network. After reading some of the responses on the internet I had already told myself that my setup wouldn't work. After posting the above I went and tried my printing setup on both of my boys laptops and it worked like a charm. Sorry to have wasted both of our times.
