will airport extreme work with a windows network and existing belkin wireless router?
I have a windows pc, windows laptop, windows/ubunto netbook, old ibook (clamshell - not that i use it but would be nice to have the option), a lexmark x83 all in one printer (usb), canon pixma ip6310d printer, palm tx, ipod touch, WD my book external drive (usb) & and belkin wireless router.
I would like to be able to havea home wired/wireless network were all these devices can connect to. My main concern is sharing my 2 printers and external drive on the network with out direct connecting them to a pc.
This airport extreme seems like the key. I have not yet been able to find another print server that can support 2 usb printers and a usb hard drive,

Yes, there shouldn't be any problem, although I'm not sure the need for the Belkin router once you have this. And, any printer must be a network printer, so first check its specifications in its documentation or at the manufacturer's online support website. You can attach a powered USB hub and Ethernet switch if needed.
