The white/grey/black colour scheme happened by accident!

The desk is a Fredrik Workstation from Ikea.
Most cables are attached to the desk with cable ties to keep them out of the way and there’s a USB hub attached to the back of the panel under the desk.
The panel is also supposed to act as a cable shelf but British plugs are too big to fit inside it properly!

Also in this picture:
Canon MP210 printer/scanner/copier, Griffin laptop stand, Huså Work Lamp, Ageing Logitech MX1000 mouse, Sennheiser HD210 headphones (handy when my wife is watching TV at the other end of the room), Dymo labelling machine, some Uni-ball Jetstream pens from jetpens.com (I bought one in Japan last year and haven’t been able to find them in the UK), fresh mug of coffee.

Still to do:
Find a decent bluetooth mouse to replace the MX1000. Partly because the batteries don’t hold their charge like they used to and partly so I can lose the cradle.
Buy a pair of Logitech Z-10 speakers.
Find a replacement light – it’s nice to have some bias lighting but the lamp is too big and the bulb too close to the wall. I’m thinking about getting some cheap cold cathode lights and attaching them to the back of the desk instead.
Get an Aeron chair :)

Question by Izzy: How do I wirelessly connect my laptop to my printer?
I have an Epson Printer and a Toshiba Satellite laptop. I’ve tried “sharing” my printer but what do I do from there? Please be specific and put things in layman’s terms if at all possible. :)

Answer by JD_in_FL
I put my printer on a D-Link DP-300U Print Server attached to my Wireless Router. I am using a USB Canon MP830 all-in-one.

The Print Server allows 2 USB and 1 Parallel printers to all share the same IP address with different port names. I also set up my Router to always give the same IP address to the the Print Server, instead of configuring the Print Server with a static IP address.

Finally, I bought a two-port USB switch and attached it to the printer. Make sure you buy one with an external switch as well as software switch.

Most of the time, the printer is connected to the Print Server so that everyone in the house can use it.

I have a USB cable from my PC and another one from my Print Server to this switch. Then, a single cable from the switch to the all-in-one.

If I need to scan or fax from my PC, I use the software switch or press the hardware switch to change it to my PC. However, when I am done, the software switch doesn’t let me change it back to the Print Server. The manual button on the USB switch lets me change it back when I am done.

Another option is that most newer printers have a USB port that allows you to attach accessories, such as a blue-tooth receiver. If your printer has an external USB port, you can install a wireless receiver on your printer and connect via blue-tooth (or otherwireless connection) to print. This can also be used for other devices, such as your cell phone that has a camera.

    Customer review from the Amazon Vine Program (What’s this?)

    For a multi-functional all-in-one printer, this Brother MFCJ450DW is fairly compact, measuring 16 inches long, 14-1/2 inches wide, and 6-1/2 inches tall. It is versatile, it can do most things a user in a home office or a small business office would want to do – it prints, copies, scans, and faxes. The paper tray is removable and can hold up to 100 sheets of 8-1/2 x 11 plain paper or 20 sheets of inkjet or glossy paper of the same size. Furthermore, there is an automatic document feeder (ADF) which can feed up to twenty 8-1/2 x 11 sheets of documents at a time. To me, it was a pleasant surprise because, in my experience, document feeders were restricted to larger floor-models.

    At the front panel of this printer, there is a 1-1/2″ x 1-1/4″ LCD screen. The user can operate the functions of faxing, scanning, and copying at the front panel or, if he prefers, at his computer with the provided software on the included CD. I connected this printer to my Dell computer by USB. It can also be connected via a wireless network. The print quality is very good and comparable to other printers I used to own, including HP and Epson printers. This Brother printer does 2-sided printing, which is quite common among desktop printers these days. The automatic document feeder makes it a breeze. There is a unique copy function which allows the user to copy up to four sheets of documents and print them all on one single sheet. I find that unusual. There is also a “Web Connect” function with which the user can scan to or print from the Cloud. I don’t use this function; I have to leave it to other reviewers.

    The purchase comes with 4 separate ink cartridges – magenta, cyan, yellow, and black. They are starter cartridges with limited ink capacity. The price of Brother ink cartridges is comparable to other brands, which is too high in my opinion. It is an open secret that printer manufacturers sell their printers at rock bottom prices but make a ton of money selling ink for them. However, at ninety dollars a pop, one can’t beat the price of this features-loaded all-in-one printer. I highly recommend this Brother printer to Amazon shoppers.

    Customer review from the Amazon Vine Program (What’s this?)

    This printer works very well. I was able to easily set it up on my wifi network and all of my computers easily linked to it. The print quality is average for a color printer. It is not the worlds best photo printer – I tried to use some photo stock and the colors were not very deep. It is very fast and not very loud when printing everyday text, etc. The scanner has a document feeder which did not jam very much. It also has a fax, but I haven’t had an opportunity to test that.

    The best part of this printer is the duplex printing. Printing on both sides not only saves paper, but it makes large documents less burdensome to carry in my litigation bag.

    The scanner works well for text documents. It is extremely show if you want to scan a photo on high resolution.

    Five stars. It does everything very well.

    Fully functional, cheap in build but fits its purpose, October 15, 2013

    This review is from: Brother Printer MFCJ450DW Easy-To-Use Inkjet All-In-One Color Printer with Scanner, Copier and Fax (Office Product)

    This was my first Brother printer; I’ve been wanting to try out the Brother brand for a while, as they’ve made decent and reliable small business printers for years (at least as far as I know of them). It seems they’re really pushing into the consumer territory, and with the major manufacturers (HP, Canon, etc) all having their various failings, now might be the best time to switch to a different brand.

    Overall, let me just summarize at the top that this printer is functional, does everything it should quite well, except the print quality is pretty mediocre and the plastic paneling is very very cheap.

    Now, that may sound like I’m unimpressed with the printer, but that would be wrong. I think the cheap paneling isn’t that big a deal so long as you treat it with care, just don’t go and plop something heavy on top or else you’ll probably obliterate the thing. My previous printer was a Canon MX700, and the plastic was very thick on it and the printer lasted for years (but scanned pretty poor quality). I don’t have kids or anything that might break the printer so I’m not too worried, and for a personal printer it should be fine, I just wouldn’t have it necessarily as a printer for a whole small office due to its brittleness.

    The print quality gets the job done, but I wouldn’t expect even high quality prints of documents (that are meant to show to prospective clients for example) and certainly wouldn’t even attempt photo printing. But, if you need high quality color documents, FedEx Office/Kinkos/etc are always there, and WalMart/Costco will print photos that will blow away all but the highest end printers (which would cost thousands, I know I used to work for Costco’s photolab and now work in digital media). In fact, the printing of this machine reminds me of the old color dot-matrix printers (even makes that irritating “rrreerrr” noise as the print head moves back and forth). Speaking of noise, its pretty quite, but does make that high-pitch noise as the print head moves around, but its pretty muffled and certainly acceptable.

    Other pros of the machine include its rich feature set (duplexing, ADF, wireless, etc). The wireless worked easy for me; I did have to install software from the CD and it installed some irritating taskbar software with popups for updating (didn’t remember seeing that listed through the install prompts). I like the paper tray being within the machine in the front instead of paper sticking out the back like many consumer machines, and the print cartridges are really easy to replace as the door is located in the front of the machine (no having to prop up the lid to change cartridges).

    Like I said, the cons aren’t really a big deal nor a deal breaker, just don’t expect this to be a shared frequent-use high-quality printer. It fits its niche quite well, and for all of its cheapness it seems intelligently designed (like my Civic, cheap parts but also designed to run forever). I’m satisfied with it for the price, and have no problems recommending it to people needing a cheap all-in-one printer for their personal use.

  4. First run wireless setup wizard.

    Print the network configuration page.

    Open internet explorer and type the ip address of the printer in the address bar and press enter.

    If you are able to see the printer information page then communication is fine.

    Now try to print, if you are unable to print.

    > Click on start > Control Panel > printer and faxes folder > Right click on the printer icon > select properties > Ports tab > select the port as standard TCP/IP and configure the port with IP address of the printer > Click on Apply and OK.
