    Just go to your local computer store. Linksys, D-Link, Hawking, etc. All of the above make a USB print server...for around $30-$50

    I just went over to the Epson site, and this printer does not appear to be networkable, at least there is nothing specific in the documentation. When I have had to try this with other multifunction printers (client buys printer without regard to whether it is network aware) I have met varying degrees of success. Sometimes nothing will work, somtimes only the printing will work, sometimes everything works. However, if something does work, it usually seems to be fragile and tempremental. If you just want to share the device between two or more nearby computers, why not get an AB switch with the appropriate number of connections? Belkin makes a four port USB switch that allows you to connect up to four PCs with one USB device. If you are networked, as you seem to be, sharing the multifunction device is another option to try. The only downsides to this are that the computer attached to the printer needs to be up when sharing, and the printer is in relative proximity to the sharing computer.

    Although there are may, many brands (both wired and wireless) on the market, I have found the Hewlett Packard JetDirect line to be the most reliable out there. The en3700 USB 2.0 Print Server is the HP entry into this area....
