Hello members
At the moment I have a speedtouch st585v6 as adsl modem/router.
I would like to have a wireless modem/router(and with usb port if possible(for printer)) and with that I'm also looking for a bridge so I can connect the WHS wireless to the network. I had a wag54g before and it was ok(till it gave up) and wonder what sort of bridge(wireless) I would need to setup with the wag54g(as I might buy one of those again). Though the wag54g has no USB port.
Any help to that would be very much appreciated.

I'm just slow today; what do you mean with NAS?
And ASUS , would that be a wireless gateway/router?

Yes, the asus is a W/L router (http://www.qmb.co.nz/p.aspx?107299)

NAS=Network attached storage

Thanks for that!
So, I could attach my wireless(st585v6)to the asus 520gu for the internet and I would get a wireless bridge for the WHS(other room). Is that about right?

Theoretically yes...but haven't tried it myself so I'm not too sure

Just a word of caution, those built-in USB ports, although made for printers, dont work as well for multifunctional printers. But if its a basic printer you are planning to attach, then yeah, you should be fine...hopefully.

Have a linksys switch with usb print server, works well despite the fact my printer software jumps up saying printer not responding every time I go to print something, then the printer carries on and prints anyway

Hi its the Linksys PSUS4 see here (https://www.ascent.co.nz/productspecification.aspx?ItemID=121327) at Ascent, I bought to be able to network my printer and enlarge my network. My PIXMA printer IP3000 is not officially supported but works all the same as other PIXMA printers are listed as compatible
