Recommendations welcome! Wireless & wired network with USB??

by lantierl / April 5, 2009 7:18 AM PDT

I am currently running a wireless network consisting of:
- Belkin G+ MIMO router
- 2 computers (Desktop PC with wireless G card and MacBook with AirPort)
- Canon pixma 5200R wireless printer
- Time Capsule from Apple (hardwired via ethernet cable to wireles router)

I am using the Belkin as my router and have turned off the Time Capsule's wireless N capabilities. and everything is working fine.

I would like to add a 1.5 TB external hard drive to my system, but my current router has no USB ports. Can anyone recommend a good replacement router that would allow both the ethernet connection to the Time Capsule as well as USB port connectivity for external hard drives?

Is there a better way to connect everything I need to cnnect than the way I am doing it now?

Thanks in advance!!!

I'll look into this as a potential solution.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
