I have a HP OfficeJet L7590. It's not wireless by default, but it has
a built in ethernet port and I plugged it into my Wireless Router
instead. It took maybe 10-15 minutes to get it set up in Hardy (8.04).
In fact, it was WAY easier to set up in Linux than it was in XP :)
Scanning and Printing work great from linux. I haven't tried the fax
feature from the computer yet. As an added bonus, the scanner has a
document feeder and it comes with a duplexing attachment for double
sided printing.
