Hi everyone,

I just bought my wife a new (refurbished) MacBook from Apple for  
Christmas. This will be her/our first OSX laptop (we've owned two  
previous old PowerBooks with OS9 on them). I know that one of the  
first things she'll want to know how to do is print. Right now our  
printer is plugged into our iMac via USB. I'm going to have to  
purchase a new wireless router as the very old one I have is Wireless  
B I think and it's slow as anything. Is Wireless N the newest? What's  
the easiest way to set up the printer for my wife to print from the  
MacBook? Should I be looking for a special type of wireless router?  
I'm very knowledgeable when it comes to the ins and outs of my Mac  
but I'm naive when it comes to the whole wireless thing. I would  
prefer it if she didn't have to rely on the iMac in case it's put to  
sleep when she needs to print.
