wi fi networking question

  mrwoo 12:24 10 Feb 2005

I am going to buy a router to share my telewest cable broadband connection. Anyone got tips for best routers or ones to avoid,if any? I also want to network my printer (standard USB connection) is there such a thing as a wireless USB adapter that will link to the router or will I need to use a PC as a print server?

You can buy a wireless router with a print server click here.

You could have a look at the routers click here They have customer reviews which might help you, though I can't recommend any.

I've not seen a USB device like you suggest, but you can get wireless print servers click here, although these tend to be rather expensive for what they do. The easier option would be to just use a standard USB interface with a connection via a computer, or if your printer has an ethernet port, then it could be hard wired to the router (assuming there close together - otherwise it defeats the object of wireless).
