Some are better, some are worse. What ISP do you use, and what router
did they give you?

With regards to your printer, you could get a wireless printer server
such as http://www.ebuyer.com/product/150600, or setup your computer to
do it. Will the other computer's connecting to it be Windows or Linux
(or Mac)? If they're just Linux, you could maybe use CUPS (does it
support wireless printing?), but if some of the clients are using
Windows you could use SAMBA. See
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SettingUpSamba for help. Thanks.
