New Around Here
I am currently using a usb printer (non-wifi) attached to the back of netgear router r7800 and that allows wireless printing. I want to improve wifi signal downstairs and thought about setting up BT whole house wifi discs by attaching to netgear router after switching it's wifi off.

Will I be able to see the printer or usb disc attached to the usb port of the router on the BT wifi and be able to print wirelessly?

I am not sure if there are any affordable mesh wifi systems with a usb port.

Any ideas will be greatly appreciated as I don't want to change my current laser printer.

Many thanks
