    Hi all,

    Hope you guys can help, I need to connect a USB only HP Deskjet 1320 to my wireless network (running a Belkin N+ router). I found the HP JetDirect, but I can't afford the $150 price tag...can I get a regular router that connects USB printers to my wifi network via ethernet? Would that work? I can dedicate an old Powerbook or an HP laptop as a print server, if that would make things easier.

    Thanks a bunch, any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Well, you can connect the printer to a computer and share it on the network. If that HP laptop has bootable system on it, that would be free it would appear.
