    I personally would not go down the wireless connection because they are all crap and unreliable dropping out at the most inoportune times.I have an Xbox and tried that wireless and it was rubbish so I hardwired it as I have done with the Wii.No problems at all since I hardwired it.

    Sometimes wireless connection can be tricky, but most of time my wireless network runs fine. I just need to restart the router once a month or so.

    How much are you paying per month for the internet service? Here in the US is around $15-$35 a month for 1.5Mbps-6Mbps services. But one may get up to 3 months free. Routers can be free with computer purchase and I even made money by buying softwares.

    Yes, not all printers are print server compatible, but all my 4 printers (one Samsung laser, 2 Canon photo inkjet, and one Epson inkjet) runs fine. The Epson one even works thru a USB-parallel adapter in addition to the USB print server. You don't get bidirectional communication as in USB or parallel connection, so you lost most, if not all, maintanence function. The memory slots on photo printer and the scanning function of all-in-one printer are not supported either. Other than those problems, I like my print servers (2 on router, one wired, and one 802.11b wireless) that I don't need to keep a computer running to allow printing over the network.

    i currently pay 17.99 for a 2Mbps connection, which tbh, i don't mind
    because as it's cable based, you do actually get 2Mbps, in fact
    most of the time the speed is nearer 2.5Mbps. over here a lot of ADSL
    users have issues with speed because of the distance they live from their
    local exchange...obviously, the further away you are, the slower the speed.
    iirc, it's down to the antiquated copper wires still in use!!

    The memory slots on photo printer and the scanning function of all-in-one printer are not supported either
    yeah, thats a biiiatch.
    "brother" amongst others now offer affordable "true" network scanners
    which support TCP/IP over ethernet....there might even be wireless variants
    available. i remember seeing one (wired) for around 69 which isn't too bad
    for a network capable all-in-one.

    I saw a brothers AIO with wireless and a 2.5" color LCD display for $99 here. My friend got one. I have not asked her if all the functions work over the network or just printing.
