USB Print Server
#1
My dad brought a USB Print server (after I told him to :biggrinSmile.

Its actually amazing, so the idea is I convert the USB printer into a network printer so that it can be shared around the house to his other computers.

So avoiding the wireless printer server as that would cause a lot of havoc he got a wired one, so I hooked it upto the router, by the way its a one of these magical do everything printers you know.

Installed the program on the laptop setup the reserved IP address and done!

I could print over the network, took 5 mins to setup its brilliant :biggrin:, its only shared between two computers but its really smart, saves unplugging it when you want to use it on a different computer.

time capsule is a brilliant idea, it was one of the popular things when leapord came out.
Apple really do make it easy for home networks I have to admit, Microsoft make it a pain Biggrina
