  1. Hey guys,

    I've been doing a lot of research, HP has a one for all connection deal but its 100$ and I am looking to go a lot cheaper than that if poss. My printer is a HP Officejet 5610v that connects via USB and I'm running Vista on my Dell 1721 laptop.

    Hub? Best kind?

    Thanks ahead to anyone that answers!

    The device you need is called a Print Server. It attaches to the Router and your printer to the Print Server.

    Any system on your lan then can see and use the Networked printer.
