g'day,
my brother has the latest BT Broadband Home Hub & uses a laptop connected wirelessly to the hub; at the mo uses an HP C3180 all-in-one printer connected to the laptop with USB cable.

Has anyone had success using the BT hub as a print server, connecting the printer directly to the hub via USB?

any comments would be appreciated
cheers,

On the older square shaped home hub you could connect your printer to the usb port but it would only do a single print job in any session without a reboot so it was not a lot of good to anyone who prints a lot, the how to is on this site

thanks HC for the useful link, will follow the advice and see what happens. Will report results in a few days which others may find of some use.
