Hi i have a Canon PIXMA iP2000 printer. i was wondering what the usb drive at the front was for, is it so i could plug a wireless usb stick into it so i can print wireless. or is it for something else?

You will need a wireless printer adapter,

The Belkin F1UP0002UK Wireless G All-In-One Print Server looks like a good buy and the price is the best on this site prices range from £55-£65 on other site delivered
