    Personal Printer Woes...

    I am heading back to school and living with a bunch of chumps in a house. We all have a lot of essay-writing that we do and so printing is a big deal. I have wasted tonnes of cash on single-use printers. By that I mean stupid crappy lexmarks or cannons that are not worth buying the new ink for since the ink costs almost as much as the system. I have no use for colour printing and just want to be able to print a lot of essays in black and white. This means that I have been looking at a laserjet. This is all well and good but we are almost certainly going to be on a wireless network and I'm guessing a personal monochromatic laser printer probably won't include wireless print serving. So what do you fellas suggest? Any particular printers out there that get your seal of extreme quality?
    Once I thought I was wrong but I was mistaken.

    There is hardware you can buy that makes your printer wireless. I believe it connects through the parallel port on your printer if you have one or it could even connect to usb. Check out this link.Its a product similar to what I was talking about. I don't know if you would want to drop 80bux on it though.

    Ahhh, that gave me an idea, buy a wireless router with a printserver set up with it already. The printer would then have to be near the access point but oh well. Cheapest solution I'm sure.

    The other way is buy a cheap old pc and use that as a print server. It might give you more control over your printer.
