Nrtwork printer

Very confused! Can I connect a USB printer to my Hub One Fibre Router and share it amongst the connected computers (many!)?
If not - can you suggest a good replacement modem/router that WILL allow such a facility?

No, printing isn't officially supported for the USB port on the hub one.

Re: Nrtwork printer

Are you suggesting that unofficially it may work?

Not promising - says 'No devices detected' even after a re-boot'.
Ah well - any suggestions for an alternative?

Re: Nrtwork printer

Which printer do you have? Is it only USB?
You could share it via a PC, or NAS if you have one.
Might it be time to upgrade to a Wi-Fi printer?

Re: Nrtwork printer

I managed to get a printer networked using the usb port on the TG582n - googled it for instructions. I'm sure there are similar for the hub one, or BT HH5.
