Specs: Windows XP
I am trying to update/upgrade my printer installation and am finding that contemporary printers/MFM are not tolerating (compatible) with the USB-hub \ USB-printer-switch \ USB-cable pathway that worked flawlessly with the older printer hardware. Sharing the printer installation through USB connectivity is a requirement. Sharing the printer to some through USB connectivity AND others via wireless connectivity would be a ''nice-to-have.'' Please advise. Thanks in advance.

Huh? Why do you say a new printer doesn't work with an a/b switch?

Anyway if you want they make a gizmo that makes a usb printer just like a wireless point.

What are you sharing the printer with ?

If you're sharing it only with other computers on the same local network, the printer only needs to connect to one computer.
When you set up a local network, if you enable file and printer sharing, on all the computers in the network, the printer will automatically be installed on all the computers it isn't directly connected to as a network printer in a short time.
