Any suggestions on Wireless Laser Printers?

Hey All,

I am looking for a wireless laser printer that will work with linux with minimal fuss. While I would prefer a color laser I would also like to hear you recommendations on B/W ones too. So if you have any suggested ones just post the make and model and I will look into it. Thanks!

I know that Samsung has wireless support on some of it's laser printers. I've been using their network printers with Linux for quite some time with no issues.

Samsung CLP-550n there is an available upgrade to this unti to add the wireless..

I had bought a demo Samsung laser printer from a store and it ended up being a doorstop. And this wasn't even a wireless.

You might be better off getting two separate things. 1. A good linux compatible printer. 2. A good wireless print server(most router manufactures also make print server modules).

I'm using a Brother Multi-Function in Windows and Linux. It's network attached to both, using wired connection, but it does also support wireless.
