print server wanted: USB + Parallel



I'm looking for a new print server device to handle the printers at home.
We currently have our laser printer attached to the network
via a Netgear PS101 small parallel to RJ45 adapter.
The color inkjet is USB and connected to an old desktop on the network
that I would like to make go away....

SO - I'd like to get both USB + Parallel in a single unit

You may not need to meet your 'USB + Parallel' spec. I
have used USB into a converter cable that converted to
parallel, and it worked ok. I don't recall the price of
the converter cable, but I saw that it was worth while
to shop around. With that cable in hand you can use the
simpler spec, 'USB,' which makes for easier shopping and
perhaps lower price.
