There is linux running on the asus wl-500b/g, still printer sharing only works with this special modified printer driver from asus. Any idea how i could enable printing from mac os x (using CUPS linux-printer drivers maybe)?

Strangely, my photosmart 1215 works with usb, but not with a connection to the parallel port of the asus.

The port is a Standard Parallel Port (SPP), that means its not bi-directional.

I'm pretty sure this is why it's not working for you.

Printing works fine for me with my iBook OS X 10.3 via WLAN and ASUS Wl500g with Oleg's mod. Firmware. I didn't any special configuration at the Mac - it just workes.
Btw. The parallel port is always bidirectional when you keep the status lines in mind. ;)

"it just works" - what does that mean? Surely you had to choose a printer driver. And sorry, i did not quite get your remark about bidirectional cable - do you mean i need a special cable?
