Question

Can I use this as wireless printer or network printer (without the need of client PC) ?

I have a small network established at home consisting of a cable modem, then a wireless router and I use 3 laptops at home on this wireless network. I do NOT have any desktop PC. I want to be able to connect one of the router's output port to this printer (without the need of a dedicated PC connected all the time with this printer) or possible set this printer to accept my wireless network at home. Is any of this possible with this Canon MP250 all-in-one printer ?

I think you would need either wireless capability or an ethernet input to do this. It has neither.

No. I dont think so. But you can get a device that goes between your router and the USB connection of the printer that should work.

OEM cartridges are `~$22 black and ~$27 color these are the prices for the XL cartridge [xl=extra large]
Non OEM cartridges are available on line at about a 50% price level. Replacement is proportional to # of copies printed. Can't help you with that as I am strickely a home user

The price for the cartridges is about $25; and with moderate use, you will need to change them every other month.

Ink is between 12-20 bucks. I would not use this type of printer for an office setting. If you print more than 10 pages a day, buy a laser printer.

If you don't use color ink that often, set the default to draft mode.....saves tons of ink and only uses the black! when you need the color just select it!
