Will the Acer Chromebook or any Chromebook ever support wireless printing? I have a printer that has wireless enabled (not Cloudprint ready) and all of my computers in my house recognize it and can print to it without any configuration.

It's a normal USB printer connected to a wireless print server

(Amazon.com: NEEWER® USB 2.0 LRP Print Server Share a Networking USB Printer: Computers & Accessories)

I have had guests come into my house and they could print to without any configuration the second they connected to my router.

Is there any way to get this printer to work on Chrome OS? I'm not really looking to buy a Cloudprint ready printer since they are about $100 and I cannot have a dedicated computer connected to the printer all the time.

What are my options?

Believe you need to set up cloud print for one of the systems that is on all the time, and then you should be able to print from your phone through the computer to the printer...

When you can print from phone, then you should be able to print from your Acer also. If you can not print via that computer with phone then you will not be able to use the Acer either. It may be a limitation of your print server...
