    Can't you locate the devices in one room then access them via the network?

    there isn't the space. The pcs are laptops, the modem is in a different room, the printer in another, Camera and Kindle in yet another, and storage in hidden in another.
    as there no desk/office its easer to use network nodes spread around the house.

    For storage you would be better off getting a device that is specifically intended for it, same with the printer (would be surprised if you couldn't get a box that would do both). Though you will need to check compatibility with the printer.

    Plug the kindle in to the laptop, same for the camera if it's a digital still camera.

    USB over network is quite expensive

    your looking £200-300 for hubs

    USB1.1 is very cheap though can get adapters for £15
