    Does anyone know if we can connect a USB hub to the airport express base station and then have two printers hooked up wirelessly? I run a college newspaper (3 macs, 0 pcs soon to be 5 macs, 0 pcs) and have two very different printer needs 1 is an inkjet with special paper to print proofs and the second is a laser for printing 8.5 x 11. both need to be accessed by all computers at all times. is this possible? If this is possible is it also possible to connect a scanner to the same hub and all three computers see it?

    Any Ideas would help. Thanks

    As far as I am aware, no, you cant

    I have a solution though - if you have one imac permanently turned on, attach one printer to that and then share it over the network.

    I know that the full sized base station is unable to do this so I would assume the same for the Express. I would suggest looking into what thefunky_monkey said. It's fairly simple.
