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
