Wireless printing to two or more printers? - Mac Networking

I am considering getting an Airport Extreme base station and one of the selling points is its ability to print wirelessly. OTOH it is expensive compared to a number of other devices. Can someone please point me at a source which explains why so few (one?) base stations support this function? Has anyone found a technical description anywhere of how wireless printing works? Has anyone had experience of printing to two or more printers connected via a hub to the AE USB port? Thanks Merlin...

    Has anyone found a technical description anywhere of how wireless
    printing works?

    Has anyone had experience of printing to two or more printers connected
    via a hub to the AE USB port?

    To print wirelessly, you need a wireless hub that supports Appletalk.
    Not a lot of wireless hubs offer that support.

    Only if you're printing to an Appletalk printer; you can print to a
    USB-attached or IP printer without that. And in any case, the
    above poster is referring to an Airport Extreme base station.
