It sounds like you don't have a DHCP Server anywhere on the wireless 
network.  If you only have your laptop (with wireless) and a printer 
attached to a WUSB45gr are going to have problems.  You will either need 
to set up your laptop to be wireless router/DHCP server or invest in a 
wireless router.  Hope this helps. 


To be or not to be, that is the question
                2b || !2b
(0b10)*(0b1100010) || !(0b10)*(0b1100010)
        0b11000100 || !0b11000100
        0b11000100 || 0b00111011
        255, that is the answer.
