Using a wireless home network, with a Iomega StorCenter ix2 network drive.

I've been having issues with a Lexmark printer/scanner/fax connected through the NAS. Basically, the two-way communication doesn't seem to work through the NAS's ports. I plan to try CaveDweller's advice about fixing it, but since the printer normally resides at my wife's place of work, we need a new one anyway.

Can anyone recommend a printer/scanner/fax that you know for sure will work through our NAS?

If you are going to buy a new printer, why not get one that has built in wireless? Some examples of HP printers.
