I have a Canon MF3110 all in one laser.. I want to use it with my new OS X computer. Canon and HP say my printer will not be supported by OS X.. Anyone know if there is a way around this? Like could i buy an usb<>ethernet print server and get around it that way?

If they don't support OS X with drivers, you can always check if there is a CUPS version of your driver you can impliment. It is a pain to setup sometimes, though it's a workaround many OS X first adopters had to use.

Try PrintGimp. It supports most printers ever made
Nope, printGimp doesn't support my printer.
What about this ip printing? I was thinking.. i love this printer.. i don't mind spending up to $125 on a device that can make my printer work with OS X.. i don't want anything bulky like a computer.. but i wouldn't mind a print server of some type.. or something
I have my HP Laserjet 6MP hooked up to an old Intel Print server. It has Parallel and serial ports (I think, maybe just different kinds of parallel) as well as an RJ-45. Works like a charm. My print server was free as it was being thrown out, but similar ones turn up cheap on eBay. Most modern wireless, USB or ethernet print servers are alot more expensive.
