    Hello all,

    I’m about to embark on a mission and I need some help please. I want
    to set up a USB printer (HP PSC 1355) and an external USB hard drive
    to a network than can be accessed by a wired desktop PC (standard RJ45
    cable) and a wireless laptop.

    Is there a (reliable) unit I can buy to connect these peripherals and
    then use them on both computers using a wireless and wired connection?
    To make things a bit clearer, I’ve drawn a beautiful picture for you
    attached to this post

    Any advice is greatly appreciated :)

    my 2 cents --

    I think the hard bit will be the disk drive, unless you're willing
    to attach it to the desktop PC and network it that way. If that's
    acceptable, you probably need a print server with a USB port, a wireless
    access point or router, and a switch (which might be built into the
    AP/router or even the print server). Finding everything in one box
    might be a bit tricky, if that's a requirement.
