What current Routers pass appletalk packets wirelessly?

My Netgear MR 314 wireless router with 4 port switch has begun to show signs of unreliability and I'm thinking its time to upgrade to an 802.11 G or super G/pre N. I only print wirelessly from my Powerbook to a networked LaserWriter 4/600 using Appletalk. All other printing is over the wired network. On the principal of 'don't fix what's not broken' I don't want to reconfigure my set up if I can help it.

So the question is what routers deals are out there that would work with my current all Mac network. It would be nice to have a built in USB print server so I could add my Epson R200 but thats not essential.

Thanks guys.

My Linksys BEFW11S4 does fine with Appletalk. You can get one for $50 or less if you shop around.

My SMC 802.11g router is the Metamucil of routers.

I don't know about their current models, but as recently as the models before summer, Buffalo Tech "Airstations" 802.11g supported Appletalk.

The Buffalo has been good to me, and relatively bulletproof.



What it is, man, a low-down and funky feelin'
