I am trying to plan out how to go about setting up a new printer and NAS (network attached storage) drive on my existing wireless network. I will be using a USB printer and a wired NAS. I have not bought the pieces yet as I am not sure if I can get one access point / print server to allow both devices to link wirelessly.
I am looking at the Netgear Wireless Print Server 54 Mbps w/ 4 Port Switch - WGPS606 - WGPS606NA (specs here at buy.com). If I read it right I will be able to hook up any USB printer to the USB port and a NAS to one of the the RJ-45 ports. Hopefully ending up with both connected wirelessly.
Any one see any problems with this plan?
The alternative is to get a wired print server and NAS then link both with RJ-45 to the Linksys WRT54G 4 port 802.11g router I already use, but the possibility of a wireless connection is nice. It would add a few dollars but free up alot of desk space.
edit: seems this print server only supports a few printers, not including the one I had my eye on. Still I would like to know if anyone has this sort of setup working? Other similar products?
