Is it possible to share a printer using Netgear's Powerline adapters? My printer is an epson stylus cx500 and I'm using Netgear xe103 powerline adapters.

It's a good question. It appears the netgear devices extend the home network by bridging it. How it does this I'm not entirely sure, however here is a direct quote from the Netgear.com

With no expensive new wiring or cabling to install, you can surf the Web, join in online gaming, send and receive e-mail, and share files and printers, all from different rooms at the same time.

There's no reason you can't, those devices are "supposed" to emulate a wire between the points. If you can connect a wire to the machine with the printer, you should be able to share just as if it's a wired connection.

Note that I have a very low opinion of power line network adapters, I've tried several brands and they've all universally sucked. :wink:
