What Hardware do I need for USB Peripherals

  Bertie B 19:35 17 Feb 2009

I have a small home network of 4 computers - two XP Desktops ethernet wired and two wireless Laptops (1 Vista/1 XP all connecting through a BT HomeHub.

Presently USB Printers, External Drives, Scanner are all connected to one of the Desktop PCs, which means it has to be powered up when anyone want to access these devices.

I want to connect these devices to a Wireless USB Hub and was considering a Belkin 5 Port USN Hub but reviews say that it operates at about 1/10 of USB2 Speed and it a pain with some USB Drives.

I would appreciate any advice on best way/hardware to achieve, please.
