Looking for a Printer that will play nice with airport extreme. Preferably one that can use a B&W only cartridge. I've tried to set it up on computers for friends and can't seem to get the wireless printing to work. I was wondering if some printers play nicer than others with airport extreme.
2.66 x 4 Intel Mac Pro, 4G RAM, 160G System 500G Scratch, Media, 320G Photo Capture, 320G Video Capture. 733 Quicksilver 1G Ram 120G system 60G backup 160G and 200G capture.
Define "wireless." Wireless, as in the printer isn't actually wireless but is made so by plugging it into the USB port on the AirPort Extreme? Or a printer that actually has built-in wireless capabilities and can connect to an existing wireless network? If it's the former, any printer should work as the printer isn't actually wireless.

i have an hp1006 works fine connected to a time capsule. its really fast, and toner is about $80. lasts me about 5 or 6 months and i print probably 15-40 pages per day
avoid lexmark printers..they never seem to work connected to an airport of any sort
My Lexmark has been working flawlessly with my Airport time capsule and also Printer share on wireless. 3 people are using my printer wirelessly at home and never had any issues for the past 4 years and i am very happy with my Lexmark so far.
So i say, you can still try a Lexmark, HP, Brothers just make that it is a the quality that you want.
the brand is for you to choose. Enjoy your new toy!

It's a bit hit or miss with Airport USB printers. I could never get my Samsung CLP-310 to work correctly on Airport, and I there are lots of similar reports on the internet.
