    I baught a usb hub, powered one of course to use with my airport express. I want to be able to share two printers and one hard drive. I tried plugging in the hub, waited and waited. Tried different ways, plug in the hub while the airport express is unplugged, plug in printers as well. Do not plug in printers different combos. Airport express refuses to see my printers or even printer when the usb hub is connected. Sees printer fine when printer is connected directly.
    This is the one, nGear All in One Card Reader Writer CF/SD/SDHC/MMC/MS/XD W/ 3PT USB2.0 Hub & Power Adaptor, also tried a nonpowered dlink hub doesnt work.
    Thank you

    If you have an 802.11n express, then it should see more than one printer if they're connected via a powered hub. The disks won't work - that's a feature of the airport extreme.
