    I had a thought about my Airport Express. Right now, I have my printer hooked up to it, but im hoping to get a mac sometime soon and was thinking about digging up my 10 year old laser printer, which originally was used with my old powerPC. Anyway, my question is, could you attach a usb splitting device to the express and add multiple printers to the wireless network? has anyone tried this?

    Thanks in advance :)

    I don't believe they make USB splitters, just hubs where I guess you could possibly have more than one printer hooked into the APE.

    Hmmm.

    I've seen a few other threats on this subject, and the idea I walked away with is this:

    I don't think you can have multiple USB printers hooked up via a USB hub...
    I think the alternative I saw was a debive that someone manufactures that allows you to have a USB Print Server Hub. It hooks into the ethernet port of an APE.

    I'm not positive of this, but I vaguely remember it.
    Try searching for the thread.
