Just a feedback out of own experience:

Not USB but for Parallel Printers using D-Link's DP-311P, 
connects the printer wireless ! ;-)

It's setting is very easy plain TCP/IP and works with 
OS/2 Warp 4, Ubuntu and Win XPP ;-))

Unfortunately the units are already EOL and support, 
however I never needed, seems to be stopped soon !?

Cool solution. ;-D
