My System Specs

Default Wireless hub with printer and external storage sharing?

Does this animal exist?

4-5 port+wireless router with both file sharing and printer via USB at the same time? Not one or the other.

I'd weary about such a thing since I'd doubt the typical router's SoC will have enough processor power and/or RAM to be a good file server. You're probably much better off with a one bay NAS with print server, they typically go for ~$150-200.
