Airport Extreme Base Station has trouble finding USB printer

in Mac Software edited January 2014
I have one of the new Airport Extreme Base Stations. I have a D-Link USB Hub hooked into it along with two devices hooked into that, a Western Digital My Book 500Gig HD and a Brother MFC-9700 USB printer.

I have had no problems at all with the My Book working with this setup but have a lot of problems with the printer. Often when it's working I don't have problems unless I turn the printer off and on, the base station off and on, or the power goes out resetting them. Sometimes it can take a day of unplugging, resetting, etc. until all of a sudden the Airport Utility finds the printer again. What could be causing this problem?
