I have a Belkin N600 D8 wireless router Model F9K1102V1, which has a USB port. I would like to connect my HP Deskjet F4180 to the router so that my wife can print from her iPad and I can continue to print from my laptop. When I tried to follow the directions from Belkin, I was asked to install my printer driver; but I didn't because it was already installed. Can I reinstall my driver from my original installation CD? How do I find it?

More than likely, they are referring to a first time installation of the printer.
However, I would hate for you to go through all the trouble of getting the printer to work with the router to find out that the iPad may not print.
The Deskjet F4180 is not on the supported list of printers for the ePrint app for iOS devices from HP.
A list of supported printers can be found here.
Also, the printer does not support Apple's Airprint technology which means native printing from the iPad will not work.
There may be some third party apps that will enable printing, but I do not know of any and I cannot guarantee they will work. Sorry.
You can reinstall the driver from the CD, but this will not enable printing from the iPad.
