The only Multifunction printer that will fit in the space alloted is the hp Officejet 5110. It is located in a cabinet a distance away from the computer. The printer and computer can be connected by Ethernet. This is a USB only device. There is no Parallel port.
I have a Linksys Wireless-Ready USB print Server. I have successfully had this device work with plain printers.
The Linksys USB Print Server wouldn't work with an Epson CX6400 multi-function printer - I gather that some multifunctions are by their nature incompatible, but not all.
Does anybody know if the OJ 5110 would work with the Linksys? Can I install JUST the printer driver without the Fax and Scanner portion, so that I can avoid print server trouble?
I know that HP has a wireless USB print server. The specs on that don't list the OJ 5110, but also don't say there's any incompatibility either. HP has a line that says "Works best with...." I could put in a wireless access point, if I had to.
