I need to buy a new laser printer and want to get something that's well-supported by TomatoUSB. However, I noticed that Tomato hasn't been updated in two years, so I'm assuming it has only limited support for recent printers. Can someone point me to a list of printers known to be supported? I'm hoping I'm not limited to buying older used printers to find one that will work! Any chance of an update to TomatoUSB in the near future or has development been abandoned? Alternately, are there any forks or clones of TomatoUSB that are under active development and have support for more recent printers? Thanks!
Check out the mods page. Afaik, I think the only limiting feature of using USB printers, is if you have the driver for it (atleast for the actual printing function). I've used it with several newer printers without issue. If however your are worried about compatability, I would recommend purchasing a network aware printer.
The HP P1006 laser printer is very efficient with the ink and works well.
I am using TomatoUSB on an ASUS RT-N16
