Printer recommendations

Any recommendations for a solid mid range printer that has excellent wifi capability and doesn't need to be connected to a laptop via Ethernet to work? Thanks.

I highly recommend a printer that does not run on WIFI - the less traffic on your WIFI network, the better. Will the printer be located in an area where it is possible to connect it to your network via Ethernet?

+1 to this, but for another reason: our wifi-enabled printer pretty consistently dropped its connection, and was creating a LOT of unnecessary frustration and wasted support time.

We have one of these and it holds up to quite a bit of use, and toner/drums aren’t bank-breaking: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B004QM99JG/

At Makeshift Society Brooklyn we’ve got one of those Brothers and it regularly gets grumpy and refuses to be found by people attempting to print. Alex, do you have it connected to the network via wireless or ethernet? Any other tips on config?

Hi,
I’ve recenly bought a Brother MFC J4410 DW (it’s a multifunction working both USB/Ethernet/Wifi), directly scanning over the network and printing very well both on linux and windows.
I didn’t have big expectations from brother, but the printer was cheap (70€) and the results are great, really surprised.
And the cartridges cost just 1/3 compared to HP!

Regards
Massimo

We had the exact same problem. Connecting to the Ethernet and setting it’s sleep time to 0 (making it not sleep, effectively) resolved it.
