    Can I plug in a USB hub into the USB port on the Airport Extreme Base hub to share more than 1 printer wirelessly?

    Does the sharing work with scanners?

    Also, does the print sharing also work with PCs?

    there is a full list of compatible printers. i dont think you can hook up a hub because i think the firmware includes the printer drivers directly on the base station. i might be wrong but why would it otherwise be limited to those specific printers and not include features like GIMP-print?

    i have done this. in the airport admin utility it has one line for usb printer. so no i dont think you can hook up a hub but i didnt say it was possible. also you must have the drivers installed on your computer. the aiport will reconize the printer but it wont work withough the drivers on every computer that you plan on printing on. it does not work with snanners. then you go to print center to add a printer and you will see your printer in the rendevouz printer selection area.
