I have had good luck with HP printers.  Especially the somewhat
dated ones you can get on EBay,  Deskjet 672 and Deskjet 920.  I 
also had good luck with a the Netgear PS121 mini print server.  I
plugged a USB printer into it (epson) and put it on my home network.
The windows printers had to have a software driver added to use the
printer.  Something called lpd.  :-)  
There was no documentation for Linux and when I tried to access it
as a Windows printer it would not work.  I told Linux it was a remote
CUPS printer and it works fine.  The box is pretty cheap, arount $20 US.
