    My DSL speed just got bumped from 768kb/368kb to 3072kb/768kb for no charge. Yay!

    Now my wireless 802.11b network is the bottleneck. I have a Linksys that I had to bump down to 1-2Mb transmit rate to get my PowerBook onlline.

    At any rate, I'm looking for a G-based wireless broadband router that also has printer sharing. I would love to have the AEBS, but it only shares to Mac's. I have one PC that I would like to use as well to print.

    Any ideas on a router that will support Mac/PC printing over wired/wireless? My other option, if anyone has had success, is to share the printer via my iMac that is always on.

    Check outSMC. I've had one of their wired 4 port routers for a few years and I love it. It works seemlessly w/my Mac and my PC and it also acts as a print server.

    Thanks! It states in the manual that it can handle both Windows and Mac network printing so that's ideal.
