this is my problem:

i want to use my HP Photosmart 7350 with the asus wl500g. the printer works only with usb. so the usb port at the router is used. but furthermore i want to connect a usb hdd with der router. this hdd works with usb too. so can i link the usb printer with the parallel port of the router?

thanx for help

use usb hub, it's supported.

I think you should consider purchasing a usb hub. It comes handy sometimes :)

try powering your usb hub or without powering

some work only with external power some only without

as far as we know every 'usb hub' works

this means also that a usb hub with some extra ports (lpt, serial, ps/2 etc..) is not an usb hub but a usb device with an optional usb hub attached and may not work
