Hi Guys,

I have a Netgear DG834GU ADSL router which is fitted with a USB port. The manual only mentions the port as a connection for an external drive. Is it possible to use this port for a printer?
(I am not sure if this post should be here or under External hardware - Mod, move it if you feel it's not in the right place)

It doesn't appear that you can. To use that USB port for a printer it would need print server software running on the router which there is not. Sorry.

Hope this helps thumbup.gif
