This edimax print server is about £25 click here

Is there anything to look out for when buying one to link up a USB printer to the router and thus to the network?

@£25 it seems alot cheaper and small than Netgear's or other makes.

It says it is for use in sharing a GDI printer ... what is that (as opposed to postscript or PCL) ?

It means pretty much a Windows printer , the host PC does all the processing of the print job , click here for a better idea .

After some research i decided to get a wireless printer. The print servers work, but not always 100%. You sometimes cant get two way communication regarding ink levels for exmple.
