    Is there a certain type of USB hub that is required for the Airport extreme

    to share a printer
    and hard drive (used as time machine backup)

    having a hard time finding an answer

    Nope. USB is Universal, so any USB hub should work. If your hard drive is bus powered though, you MUST have a powered hub, otherwise, any $10 USB 2.0 hub will work.

    You might want to think about getting a powered unit, particularly for HDD's. :)
    Saves headaches at a minimum, and not expensive. Especially for peace-of-mind. :p
