Hi again guys
i decided to get a network usb hub so i could connect to my printer which is upstairs from my laptop downstairs. i have bought a Belkin network usb hub & i am having a bit of a problem
my question is does the hub have to be connected to my broadband router to work? cos i thought it was supposed to be wireless.

Though I have not used one myself, I do believe it needs to be connected to router - but I can't offer you any details.
