What do the instructions for the wireless router say about using the
router USB connector for a printer and setting up windows for using the
router as a print server?
Can you see the printer with the browser (may show up under the router)
If the printer was originally connected to the Vista P/C via USB, you
may be able to just change the port, or install a second instance of the
printer and point it to the lan address of the router/printer.
