I currently have Linksys wireless-B with 4 laptops that connect to the
network and 2 printers connected to 2 of the machines.

What I would like is:
A wireless print server that I can connect up to 3 printers using USB
or regular printer cable (both options on the same box) so I don't
have to have any laptops locked down because of the printers.

All I have seen are boxes that allow one printer like Linksys WPS11.
I'd prefer to not have to buy 2 or 3 of these boxes to achieve my
goal.

Does this exist? Any idears?

Thanks,
Chris

fwiw
NP26g compex router... if you want to upgrade to a G router, had two usb
ports - see it advertised as two printers and/or as usb print/cam server

If I understood correctly, you want a single printer to handle the jobs from
all laptops, is that correct?
