I am shopping for a new all in one printer for my mac book pro and would
like to keep it wireless and i saw the hp has one with ethernet and wondered
if this would work with an airport extreme i am already using the usb for
a hard drive.

I would get one of those new Samsung models selling exclusively through Apple right now, but I don't know if it's wireless.

I have to vote for the Canon mp610. Very affordable and great quality. I got it when I first got my Imac and have been very happy with it. I use it to scan photos into the Imac and for general photo and text printing.

I have the Lexmark P6250 and can't get the scanner to work. I do have an Epson R220 that seems to print fine. Anybody have any experience with the Epson RX680. I want to ability to use an all in one with my iMac. I don't have a problem buying a new scanner if needed but would really like a all in one.

Lexmark have released drivers for this model scanner and Leopard, which may be worth a try. Here is the link:-

Have a C5100 series HP, use it connected to the router via ethernet and share it with my Win and Mac machines, both wired and wireless.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.

I have a Canon Pixma MP610 that is a great printer - except it won't scan with the Mac. I've read several posts here and there about this problem. Too bad, otherwise a nice printer. I'll have to look at some of these alternatives.

I finally found one that would do it all the HP 6380 networking
so far so good ink is cheaper than the Epson and it will scan,copy
and print all through airport extreme.

Update - I had the usb cable from the Pixma (the only port available on the MP610) going
directly from the printer to my Airport Extreme. Finally, I found out if I connect the USB cable printer to the iMac, I can print AND SCAN (which is all I was trying to do) on the iMac, but then can't print from the MacBook. Neither Canon (which I had to pay for tech support, grrr, or Apple was able to help).

I'm using all the USB ports on the iMac (keyboard, mouse and camera) and it only has three.

So the semi-solution is to connect the USB to the iMac if I want to Scan and then switch it back to the Airport Extreme in order to print from both printers. I probably can also get a USB hub, so I don't have to switch - maybe. Either way, it's annoying. I also have an external HD and my computer cables are totally out of control as it is. I really don't want yet another unit that I have to have even more cables!

Printer sharing only addresses the printing and not scanning. Hope this made sense. So the Canon Pixma series is great for one printer, but a pain with anything wireless. So when the Pixma 610 (and no doubt the others) say compatible with Mac, be forewarned. One Mac yes, two, no.
