Cable/ADSL routers with print spooler

I'm not sure where I saw it, but someone has a very compact print server
that just plugs into an Ethernet port on the network (sort of a dongle). The
only other routers that I am sure of that have a built-in spoolers are
siemens and SMC (you didn't say wireless, so I am assuming hardwired).

Siemens -
This isn't the one I saw, but here's a print server from Netgear:

I was happy with my netgear, but they are apparently incapable of handling
30,000 volts at the ports, which is why I am not using mine anymore ;-).

> 1. 10/100 Ethernet switch (not hub)
> 2. Four Ethernet ports minimum.
> 3. Print spooler
> 4. Ability to block or allow traffic -

> Of course, other bells and whistles are welcome but not essential.
