Good morning everyone. I have a desktop computer hooked up to a printer via USB. My desktop is wired to a router. I have a wireless laptop downstairs that my wife would like to use and print from WITHOUT turning on the upstairs computer. Can somone recommend a good wireless printer server. THANKS!

I have only worked with HP Jetdirect print servers. I know you can get a usb one and they work fine, but they might be a little pricey.

I have a Linksys WPS54G...bought it years ago. Works good for me. I have no opinion on others because this is the only one I have ever used. =)

You could post in the External Hardware forum. Might get a few more opinions.
