Printers on those linksys printer servers and it does work in spite of the printer not supporting such. For you, if you insist they write it works then next time go get a printer that says it does. Here I just dive in and get it going. But that's me. Others want warm and fuzzy.
My Dad has a Netgear Wireless Cable Router. He has a Dell Windows XP laptop that connects wirelessly to the Internet thru this router. We gave him a Canon Pixma MP950 which clearly states that it does not have network capability. I contacted Canon to see if I could plug the PM950 into a print server and the print server into the wireless router and they said no but couldn't seem to get into more detail than that. However, Felisa Yang, one of the editors here, supplied an answer that seems to make sense (link below) but is in direct contrast to what the guy at Canon told me. http://reviews.cnet.com/4520-10166_7-6477856.html?tag=txt
Does anyone know if it will work for this printer? I'm concerned about opening the box b/c if he can't print wirelessly, he'll want to return the printer. THANK YOU!
