    Hi guys, I'd like to buy a printing/scanning machine but I don't want to use other cabling apart from power!
    I would like the machine to be in another room to be host.
    What characteristic should it have in order to work with my iMac 10.11.6
    Can you please enlighten me.

    PS: I'd like an epson

    My Epson XP324 works a treat via wifi, both printing and scanning.

    Have to say I have always found the need to set up via USB cable to get it up and running before setting up wifi.

    Use any printer that is AirPrint compatible and connect it to your WiFi network and you will be golden.

    Love Love LOVE my HP Envy 5530. There’s a newer model but this one has a small and unobtrusive footprint. I have Instant Ink (there’s a free trial) and that has saved me a bundle. Mine has been ticking along for almost three years now.

    I use an Epson but I think most manufacturers have models that will work for you.

    AirPrint support is really only necessary if you plan on using iOS devices. For an iMac, any WiFi printer will work.

    That is true, but it ensures compatibility across all Apple devices on the network
