I've looked carefully, and I'm pretty sure there is no such button
on my WRT54GL; the only button is called Reset.

I've installed the UnifiedLinuxDriver_1.07 from Samsung,
and this allows me to setup (and use) the printer
after connecting to my router with ethernet,
and then I can access the printer web-page
at the IP address (192.168.2.33) given by dhcpd on my LAN.

Unfortunately this web-page does not indicate any way
of connecting the printer by WiFi.

It seems to me that I shall have to run Windows on my server,
at least temporarily, to setup this printer as a WiFi device.
