Airport Express is $99, is a wall-wart-sized router, does WPA2, WDS (extend a network), 5GHz N, and is a print server. But, I find it more useful when I travel as an in-hotel-room mobile hot-spot to NAT my laptop, phone and iPad behind one room's internet connection.
Costco has an OfficeJet 6500 (wireless) multi-fuction color inkjet printer for ~$100.
Brother HL-2170W (wireless laser) is (as others have mentioned) easy to find for just under a C note.
