With your Dell 1320 printer turned on, and connected with an Ethernet cable from the LAN port of the Cisco valet Plus router, to the Ethernet port of the Dell 1320 printer, go into your Cisco Valet Plus router setup pages, with a computer, use the following directions page 14 of maual at below site: ... -01453.pdf

I tried all this. I even had an IT guy from work come over to help. Couldn't do it. I gave up and bought an HP Laserjet CP1525nw. It cost me $200, but it installed easy, works fine, and is wireless.

It was an unbelievably frustrating experience. Especially because none of it made any sense. Nonetheless, I really appreciate everyone on this site who tried to help - most notably, thunderbird.
