We acquired an HP 5510 Office­Jet All-in-One printer/fax/copier/scanner this past week­end. It uses a USB interface.

I’m real­ly want­i­ng to try a USB wire­less print serv­er on this thing. I don’t like hav­ing to be wired to any­thing. It seems ridicu­lous when using a lap­top. We serve the laser print­er from the Sam­ba machine, but I seri­ous­ly doubt that it would let us use all the nice toys on the print­er if we did so via Samba.

I’m won­der­ing, though— would doing so let me con­tin­ue to use the scan/fax fea­tures of the print­er from my PC? If so, I’m gonna get one of those babies.

If not—well, I’d like one, but it isn’t as appealing.
