    I am thinking of buying a Canon Pixma iP4000 printer. This will sit next to my ethernet router and it would be nice if I could plug the printer ( via it's USB port ) into the router. How do I go from USB to Ethernet, cheaply, bearing in mind the printer only costs £100.

    I to have one of these printers, While I cannot comment on your connectivity requirements, I can say that the prints this printer produces are fantastic.

    You would need a Print Server. I think they can be picked up for about £30 these days and then you would plug your printer into the box and the box into your router. The printer would then have its own IP address and not need a PC to print (other than the origin PC of course!)
