The best wi-fi print server

I sometimes use an Aspire netbook using XP which is wireless. Is it possible to connect one of the above to enable the use of my printer which is not wireless?

You can get USB devices that work as a wireless hub for printers. Not sure who makes them but this might give you an idea

I use a Netgear WGPS606 which is incredibly easy to setup and use click here 10/10 for the software and ease of use.

You have to initially connect it to a PC and printer to set it up but disconnect the cables after you've done so.

The only snag with it is that it doesn't support any higher level of encryption other than WPA-PSK.
