HP PageWide MFP 586dn Wireless Setup
The HP PageWide MFP 586 series (HP PageWide MFP 586dn,MFP 586f, MFP 586z) has a good selection of both wired and wireless printing choices. It includes a USB port for connecting to a computer, and Ethernet for connecting to a wired LAN. (I tested it over an Ethernet connection, with its drivers installed on a printer running Windows Vista.) It has built-in Wi-Fi, and supports HP Wireless Direct HP's proprietary equivalent of Wi-Fi Direct as well as NFC. The 586dw is Apple AirPrint compatible, and also supports printing from Google Cloud Print. It offers a good set of drivers, including PCL 6, PCL 5e, and HP's PostScript emulation. Most businesses don't need to print with PostScript, but for those that do, a PostScript driver is a must.

The printer also offers some important conveniences. If you connect it to a network, using either Ethernet or Wi-Fi, you can print through the cloud, as well as print from an iOS or Android mobile device by connecting through an access point on your network. You can also take advantage of HP's print apps and print from a USB memory key using the 4.3-inch touch screen to give commands.
