USB Print Server

  interzone55 18:02 30 Aug 2004

I'm looking for a Print Server to connect a USB only laser printer to my network (Samsung ML-1510, only £49.99 at the moment).
The cheapest standalone print server I've found up to now is a Dabs Value one at £31.99.

EBuyer have a broadband router & USB Printer Server for £21.14 click here .

My network is run from an Origo 4 port ADSL router, will plugging another router into this cause severe headaches? In the manual for the ebuyer router it says it can act as a DHCP server or client simultaneously. This suggests I can stop it being a DHCP server if I want to. So maybe I can use it just like a switch.

Please help me as this is going way beyond my networking knowledge.

You're probably best going for the dabsvalue one. You can't really predict whether the two routers will like each other and they may not have enough options for you to disable one of them.
