do you have any budget contraint ? how many users will access the printer server?
Also why do you need a server ? i guess MFC-8220 is a Network printer right ?

I do have a budget.  i like under $100.  up to two user, its for a home office.  the need is there because when I undock my laptop it seams to mess with the USB connection and the monitoring software.  The printer is not a network printer.

The MFC-8220 supports both PCL and PostScript (actually BRScript, Brother's PS emulation). Hence, just about any printserver should work with it. The Netgear PS0121 lists the mfc-8440, but not the 8220. I'm convinced it will work just fine though.

Alternatively, and much preferred, install the Brother NC-9100H network card in the printer.
