Thanks Bremner and LeadingMNM! I'll perhaps wait for newer models from Canon and/or HP then trade-in my existing printer so I can have all the features that I want, e.g., MFC printer, separate ink tanks with automatic document feeders.
You require a "PRICOM C-6200U" printer and scanner server, made by "Silex Technology", specifically for Canon mfd's. This device uses wired ethernet but does allow the sharing of the scanning function as well as printing.
I use one at work on an MP730.
Be warned, this item is hard to find and does not come cheap!
