    I'm looking at buying an Airport express. I currently have a wireless router that works fine, but lacks two functions that the Airport has. First, I can't currently connect a printer or hard drive to my router. Second, Airport supports AirTunes, which would be super convenient.

    So my question for anyone that owns one is: could I connect both a printer AND a hard drive using a USB hub, or does the router support only one device at a time?

    Also, if anyone has any other options for what I'm trying to accomplish, that would be appreciated.

    The Airport Express doesn't support hard drive connection, just a printer and Airtunes.

    A Time Capsule has a built in hard drive and allows a printer connection while the Airport Extreme will support a hard drive and a printer via a USB hub, however, neither of these two options support AirTunes.
