    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
