Wireless router, usb printer


I am looking for a wireless router that will:
-give decent wireless (n) speeds for 4 different devices, and one hard-wired computer.

-provide a usb port and the ability to print from an attached printer (driver installed on computers already)

-have a less than $100 price range (preferably not above 50-60)

-can be set up with linux, preferably

-be comatible with some apple devices

So far, everything close seems to have some problem with it. Any suggestions?

-oh, and will be used in-home, up to 50-feet away through walls

currently thinking along the lines of http://www.microcenter.com/single_pr...uct_id=0357100 or http://www.microcenter.com/single_pr...uct_id=0364134

I have a Belkin N600 that seems meet those specs, though I haven't tested printing via the USB port.

Thanks!! The Belkin works just fine. The printer is wireless itself, and I didn't need the USB. It is a very fast router, and even better than the Apple Airport Extreme I used to use (I no longer have it, long story)

Thanks for the feedback. I'm actually not using the Belkin right now. I got when I thought my Linksys was broken (turned out to be a bad cable) and kept it as a spare. No such thing as too much spare hardware.

Unhappy Did you get printing from Linux working?

I know your printer is wireless, but mine is USB and I'd really love to print from my Linux boxes to the printer attached to my N600's USB. I can't seem to get it right though (!) The Win boxes run a Belkin client utility, but I can't figure out how to connect to the printer in Linux. Any help would be great! TYiA!
