    I am in the middle of Networking my House with a NETGEAR DG834 ADSL Firewall Router (wired) but I wish to add a USB print server, the one I am looking at is the Belkin Bluetooth Access Point with USB Print Server here (quite cheap on Ebay) it does have a Lan RJ45 networking socket but I am not sure if it will work with my setup with it being a wireless print server :confused:

    Can anyone tell me if this would work with my setup?

    Thanks

    do you actually need the print server to be wireless?


    If you dont need wireless i'd go for one of these

    if you need wireless then maybe go for this

    The bluetooth model you've seen wouldnt work wirelessly with your 834G, but would be fine connected via RJ45 ( although £30 more than you need to spend if that's all you require )

    Hi Dude

    No I don't need wireless, so I went for a cheap parrallel print server from ebay :)

    I don't suppose you know how to set my date on the admin settings for the Netgear DG834? it seems to be 2 years out of date.

    Thanks
