?Best print server with Belkin N1 router

  User-1236286 18:24 08 Feb 2008

I intend to purchase the Belkin N1 (F5D8631uk4) modem wireless router (at £94)to go with my new laptop , a Dell Inspiron 1720 Duo T7250 2 GHz with Intel Pro wireless 3945 802.11g Mini card. I have looked hard at routers and the reason for the N1 is to ensure coverage (old victorian house). I also have a HP deskjet 5552 printer which I want to connect wirelessly to the router in the same room, but I am having difficulty in finding a suitable print server. Would the Belkin F1UP0002 (at £51) do the job? Are there any better ones?

As you can guess I am an absolute novice, and the laptop will (probably) not be used for gaming and so the spec does not have to be too high.

my suggestion would be to save the £51 and connect the printer directly to the router [as it is in the same room as the router] by patch cable I am assuming the deskjet has a network adaptor installed.

The printer is quite old (Deskjet 5552) and as far as I am aware there is no network adapter installed. The printer has a USB port (it is about 1cm square) but I only got a parallel cable with it. So are you saying that I need to buy an adapter (about £40) and then cable it to the router?
