Share USB printer via router


Hello all, this should be an easy one for you gurus !. I've just bought a Canon i9950 photo printer and would like to share it on my home network by means of a hub or router ( I don't want to connect it directly to a PC for various reasons ) at the rear it has two USB inputs, a firewire port, and a camera to printer USB port on the front. I have a Linksys router and hub available on the network , is it possible to utilise these for my purposes ?, if so what cabling do I need ?

many thanks

Pete Kane

You need a printer server with a USB port.
