    Hi guys,

    I'm contemplating buying two airport extremes in order to provide adequate wireless signal in my home. I intend to set up the routers to run in "roaming mode" wherein the routers exchange synchronization information over ethernet rather than using wireless. (see http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4260).

    Because of the layout of my house, I intend to place the "primary" airport extreme in my garage where the fios OTN ethernet cable and ethernet runs from other rooms in my house terminal in a junction box.

    I intend to setup the "secondary" airport extreme in bridge mode and place it in an upper level loft.

    Question: Can I attach a USB printer to the "secondary" router and have computers attached to my network recognize and print to it? Or when running a bridged network like this can I only attach the printer to the "primary" airport extreme?

    Thanks in advance

    Clayton

    A printer can be shared from either Airport device and be used by the whole network.
