Router Question: My USR MAXg router now has troubles connecting to the internet (connection to cable modem fails...not the modem). In addition to routing and wireless, it also is a USB print server. The router intermittently loses connection to the internet...router problem. Question: Can I buy a cable router to use for the router function, and still use my MAXg for print serving and wireless?

I just started working in a small office (there are 3 of us). We have wired internet (I know, I know!), and an HP OfficeJet 5610 All-in-One Printer/Fax/Copier in a tiny closet. We all work different hours and use laptops. There is no dedicated computer that is there and always on. I know from working with a friend that we need a small printer server to plug into the printer and connect to the switch in the closet. One side needs to have a USB plug, the other side needs to accomodate the internet cable.
I think I'm talking about option #4 in this Wikipedia article.
I need to make a recommendation to my boss for what exactly she needs to buy to make this work.
Is something like this what I'm looking for? Is it likely to be compatible with the HP OfficeJet 5610? I need it to be!

What is the expected printing speed for wirelessly connected printers? I hooked up a Trendnet usb to wireless printer server with my older Canon S600 USB printer. I use wep encryption on my network. I immediately noticed that the print job for one page color document take a quite a bit of time to start on the printer. I have not played around much yet, but when i tried printing a short word document from my laptop I was getting not enough memory errors. I am pretty sure it is not a laptop problem.
When the printer was connected to the desktop PC i did not notice these problems of course. [more inside]
