FWIW, I recall seeing a stack of boxes at BestBuy St James Saturday .. 
they were the linksys usb wireless printservers .. they were "blowing 
them out" at about $70 or something close to that I thought ... not too 
shabby for a dedicated usb print server . not sure if they're still on 
clearance or not ... they were on a table ...

as for other options .. you could always just plug it into a linux box 
and hook up a wireless card to it ...
or ... I like this one ...

The wrtsl54gs:

saw a unit in the city here .. although they want $150 for their unit 
and wont budge on price.

Naturally, you can hack up a wrt54g and add a usb interface as john 
mentioned ...

... there's some pretty cool hardware mods for this thing ... I 
personally like the 1wire temperature sensor project:
... you can pick up some from maxim-dallas ...
