Ports for print services
That should work fine. I run something similar at home using a Draytek 120 modem and an Atheros mini-pci card.
If you've been using IPFire you'll already be aware of most things to look out for. Like the fact that, unless you put in a firewall rule, your wireless network will be completely isolated from your lan.
oh ok, what rule would i need get file/print sharing from wireless to lan and vise versa ??
If you don't want or need any isolation between wifi and lan then just add a rule that allows any access:
Allow, tcp/udp, wifi subnet, to any.
Exactly like the default rule for lan. You can always add more rules later if want to block something specific.

If you don't want to allow all, the exact ports you need will depend on what operating systems and file/print sharing protocols you're using. SMB/CIFS requires different ports to NFS or others. Similarly if you're using IPP for printing that requires different ports than if you're using LPD or CIFS/SMB.
