    Have Bonjour installed and the (single) Printer is working fine using an Airport Extreme (the square one) between two Macs and a PC. Is it possible to add a second Bonjour printer (using a USB hub)? Not found any info on this in the forum or manuals. And are there some other considerations? Don't have the second printer yet, so can't experiment.
    Thanks!

    I believe you can add more than one using a USB hub. You can also add a hard drive using a hub as well.

    You can also use an ethernet cable if your printer supports it if you do not want to purchase a USB hub.

    Bonjour Printers on both Airport USB & Ethernet ports.

    Thanks,
    So there could be one Bonjour Printer on the USB port, and another Bonjour Printer on one of the (Airport) Ethernet ports? Ethernet is often easier, longer cables for one.

    Or get a printer that has wireless connectivity. No cables at all. I have a Brother color laser in another part of the house that I print to from all my computers. It was not that expensive and you can locate it wherever you want (like a closet).
