I have an HP Deskjet 832C printer that I would like to hook up to a Linksys Wireless G Broadband Router. Is there some type of adaptor cable that will let me hoop into this router? All I can find online is USB to Parallel, and I would need to go Parallel to RJ45?

I don't think it's going to work.

There are routers which are designed to provide a wireless link to parallel printers -- but I suspect most are redundant models like the Zoom wireless b example I have. It's equipped with its own parallel port and comes with software to complete the link.

The modern equivalent would probably come with USB.
