When you tried LPD, did you put in your ip address of your router in the server box? Then under protocol put lp.

This should allow the print server to work, this is the way I got my US Robotics router to work.

I have to play around with this too (I have a similar model)

Its a very windows centric thing (ie: it comes with special windows drivers to enable printing...I really don't know why or what functionality they give) my SO uses it...I myself haven't tried YET...but I expect it won't be easy...if someone has tips, they'd be appreciated.
