Is it possible to connect multiple printers to an Airport Extreme via a USB hub? It seems like it would work, but I am unable to find any documentation supporting this.

This has been asked before. No one appears to have tried it but the general feeling is no. Do a search for the reasons (basically APE does not export USB over the network it provides a single port print server instead).

I asked about this quite a while ago. A couple people told me they'd tried it and failed.

So would it be possible to connect two printers to my powerbook via a USB hub while still having one printer connected to an Airport Extreme?

Sure (as long as all three are supported by OSX of course).

Absolutely.
