    Im looking to buy a router and the one I have found has a print server built i, so it has USB port on the back, would I be able to use a scanner on it via the USB port on the router?

    cheers

    A printer and a scanner are quite different devices :p

    It's extremely unlikely.

    Alot of these routers dont support bi-directional so I cant ever see a scanner working.
