    Hey,
    I noticed the Extreme Base station has a USB port, and all Apple documentation is telling me it's for printers. Can you hook up a 4 port usb and run everything wirelessly? Or is it using a plugin or something to print wirelessly? I'm trying to eliminate the desk in my room completley, and if I can put it all on a small shelf, that would be awesome.

    Not really, it's not a regular USB port. It can only print.

    I haven't tried it but I guess you could theoretically try to hook up a bus filled with printers to it, although I doubt it'd work in practice. :eek:
