1) I just purchased a 20" iMAC desktop computer. I tried to connect my Dell 720 printer, Service Tag BWPLD71, to it. Reply message says I need to tell my computer the router number. Dell rep gave me this # R-80999 but it does not work. Ideas on what would work to get my printer working with my new computer.
2) Is a Brother MFC3360C compatible?
3) What are some readily-available printer/scanner/fax/copy options that work well with iMAC for under $100 that have lower-cost cartridge replacements. Thanks.

Your question does not make sense, but I will try. This is a great printer. You have three options. You can purchase an add in wireless card that plugs into the main board in the printer for a stand alone wireless printer. You can connect an Ethernet cable and run it right into your router, and your router will assign it an address. You can also just hook it up via a USB cable to your desktop, and share it, and your desktop. You will want to establish a Home Group if you have not done this yet, with all home computers on your homegroup using the same password. You can do this with any printer, you just need to share it.
The first step is to set up a wireless network is that you need the
equipments for connection. First of all you need a Broadband Internet
connection, Wireless router, and a wireless network adapter. The router
converts the signals coming from your Internet connection into a
wireless broadcast. You need to purchase an adapter for a desktop
computer and you must make sure that you have one adapter for every
computer. If you have a desktop computer make sure that you have an USB
port to plug the wireless network adapter to your computer.
Yes you need to setup the printer as a shared printer using the printer driver CD. Your shared printer and computer would need to be on your LAN and connected to a wireless router. The laptop will connect to the shares printer via the wireless router and LAN cable to the computer with the shared printer.
