    I got the Netgear WGPS606, to share my 930C and to network the 4 pcs in my room without 4 wireless cards. Its a print server with in built 4 port switch, and was a doddle to set up. Other route is to buy a nice new printer (if yours is older) I got the Photosmart 2710, and it comes with inbuilt 10/100 and 802.11g wireless. Works flawlessly, and you can scan over the network which is pretty groovey.

    Does anyone know any 802.11g routers which support at least 3 USB devices, preferably at a low cost?
