USB wireless print server views wanted

Can anybody recommend a wireless print server which is not too expensive and will support a generic printer (ie not HP)? I would prefer if it was a dongle format, but a small box would also be acceptable. It only needs to support a single printer.

Cheers

Ian

I have recently changed from PC to Mac and use an Epson R2880 which is not wireless enabled. I solved the problem by using an Apple Airport Express which lets me print wirelessly. I addition I can use it to stream Audio to separate speakers.

The Apple Airport Express is a great piece of kit and not a bad price and will do the job for you Ian.

Cheers. Is the Airport Express compatible with Windows and a standard 802.11 wireless router?

Just had a quick read and the Airport Express does indeed seem to do what I want. It's a bit pricey though, maybe I was just being unrealistic thinking there may be a 20 dongle out there somewhere. Sad

What about the likes of this ? Not as sophisticated but cheaper?

Thanks Chris, that is the right sort of size and price but it needs to be wireless. However, from that page I did spot this , which is what I'm after and the reviews seem reasonable.

Off to do some digging. Smile

I had a TP-Link Wireless server but I had to enable its driver software every time I wanted to use it. It was a real pain. Hence moving to Airport Express

LOL I bet you guys still end up having to go to the printer because it runs out of paper due to Sod's Law Grin
