    You can have wireless, or good, or budget, but I've not found any printer that meets all three requirements.

    Why not Wifi an existing printer? That's exactly what I have done. I have a HP 970 CXi and attached a 3COM print server to it. Works a treat. Let me know if you want more details as I have had mine running like this for years.

    I've got a similar setup but using a netgear print server, the trouble is the print servers are still relatively expensive to buy yet you can now pick up a wifi enabled printer for less than the server <£50 so it doesnt make economical sense anymore unless you can get a saving from the consumption of inks in both setups?

    I second BOB on the shared printer.

    BTW a cheap printer normally costs more to run.
