    And indeed it works with Appletalk. Perhaps yours is simply broken. The
    MR314 was made by Zyxel, so it's possible the current Zyxel offerings
    will also work with Appletalk.

    You could try hooking the hub up to the router and the bridge to the
    hub; sometimes you'll get ports which are just out-of-spec enough to
    work with some brands but not with others.

    Probably because the MR314 is discontinued. The current MR814 does not
    support Appletalk. The MR314 does.

    They still have the MR314 listed.

    Running it throught the hub to the router seems to solve the problem.
    It now works flawlessly. Thanks to all.

    I'm a bit annoyed that I have to have one more device plugged in. Now
    I have one more transformer plugged into an already out-of-control
    surge protector. I guess it's a small price to pay to have wireless
    internet AND printing.
