how do I get more USB ports?

Hi guys, just upgraded to broadbend with blueyonder.
It uses a Wireless Access Point on back of my digital telly set top box, to a wireless USB adapter in back of my pc. I only have two usb ports, and was using one for mouse and one for printer. Is it possible to buy an adapter thing to make more ports, so I don't have to unplug broadband to print something out.
any help greatly appreciated.
Thanks, Fred.

I think you can just add a PCI USB card which has more ports on it.

easier to get yourself an external 4-port usb hub, available from virtually any computer retailer. just plug it in to one of the usb ports and bobs your uncle - 4 new ports to choose from.

Thanks guys, I see Maplin do a USB hub with four extra ports on. That will do me smashing. Thanks for your help.
