    Airport extreme alternative
    is there alternative for Airport extreme or any other modem/router that has a usb port that allows connect a USB Hub for various stuff ie. external hdd,printer, card reader, camera cable, etc? if there is no alternative will airport extreme handle other USb devices than printer and external HDD? I'm most interested if it will be possible to:
    1. use external HDD as a music library for 4 laptops (3 running Windows XP, 1 running OS X) simulaniusly
    2. use printer on all computers simultaniusly
    3. use card reader on all computers
    4. use other usb stuff like wireless usb mouse, gamepad, keyboard?

    Not sure about the card reader, or other usb stuff... However my Airport Extreme has an external drive plugged in that is used by a macbook/iMac/XP machine/Linux machine all work well.

    I have also 2 printers plugged into it which are used by the above machines.

    I thought there was only one USB port. How do you connect 3 different USBs
