    I believe any USB printer can be used with the Time Capsule as long as your Mac has the appropriate printer driver for it. My Epson CX4800 multifunction printer was recognized immediately.

    However, with a multifunction printer (or at least my Epson), you can only print wirelessly. The scanner cannot be used wirelessly. The printer has to be plugged directly into the mac to scan (which also causes a 2nd printer icon to be created - one for wireless and one for direct connect).
