Make networked scanners available to other Macs
Authored by: macshome on Oct 17, '06 07:45:28AM

Just as a side note, Brother has really nice Mac support. I've got a 420CN at home that I hung off a ethernet/wireless bridge. My wife uses it all day for network printing, scanning, and faxing. I've even used it as a USB or network SD card reader in a pinch.

It's cheap, fast, and fully supports Mac OS X to the point that they even have printer status widgets for Tiger.

Breaking my server to save yours.

Brother MFC420CN

I second the above. My MFC420CN scans faultlessly over our network via ImageCapture connected by a bridge (Linksys WET54G)..... Prints too ;-}...

At the risk of 'postin' "Me too" like some brain-dead AOLer', I'll have to second the recommendation for the Brother. Dirt cheap for an all-in-one with built-in ethernet, good scan and print quality, works flawlessly with Macs and Windows on a network.
