Netgear WG111v3 blocks access to epson RX500 USB printer

Just had the netgear adapter fitted to do with Tiscali TV. I now find that I can no longer access my printer whilst the adapter is fitted.
I have a HP desktop with 4 USB ports at the back, 3 are used, netgear adapter, mouse, printer.
Mouse works fine but computer cannot see printer and reports unknown device when I connect the printer.
Have tried various booting and rebooting routines but all to no avail.
If I unplug the adapter the computer sees the printer without problem.
I can connect the printer to the front USB connector and it works OK but prefer not to have leads sticking out of the front of the computer with a young son about.
Any ideas please
