The HWUN1 Hi-Gain Wireless-300N USB Adapter with Upgradeable Antennas is a draft 2.0 802.11n wireless adapter that supports WEP, WPA and WPA2 and has two removable antennas. It is available now at a street price as low as $80.

The HMPS1U 1-Port USB 2.0 Print Server for Multifunction Printers connects a USB multifunction printer to your existing home or office network via a 10/100 Ethernet port. It uses special "NetUSB" technology that recognizes print calls from network computers and differentiates them from scan and copy functions, which are handled by a multifunction-capable host computer.

The server supports both LPR and IPP protocols, the latter allowing Internet-based printing and can also share a USB storage device (thumb drive, card reader, hard drive, etc.). The HMPS1U is available now at a street price as low as $55.
