    Does anyone still make printers that are NOT network ready?

    The military base I work on has a directive that any printer on the network must be an HP, and stand alone printers that are not HP, must not be able to network, USB only. I know it is like tying to buy a car with out a steering wheel but I thought I would ask.

    a lot of your office jet series is USB only. Are you looking for toner based printers?

    these are a list of business class HP printers that do not come standard with a network port.

    Yes I am looking for laser. I can sell HP, but we hardly make anything on them. Konica or Ricoh would work.

    I have nothing to do with Ricoh or Konica so I can't help you there man. We just sold a bunch of the HP-2035d series (i think) that were all desktop units and didn't have a NIC card on them. All connected USB. The client wanted B/W at everyones desk and then they had color in the work areas. Didn't make a lot of sense to me, but it was there money so I was happy to go around and install the print drivers for an entire day.

    There are some tabletop Kyocera Mita's that come with USB only. Also some of the Samsungs sold in the office supply stores.
    That's a strange sort of requirement. I wonder if there's any logic behind it? =^..^=

    If you'd like a serious answer to your request:
    1) demonstrate that you've read the manual
    2) demonstrate that you made some attempt to fix it.

    In extremely secure environments, the (irrational) fear is that a networked printer could somehow be used as a bridge so that one computer could steal data from another. (I've had a few accounts like that.)

    The root of that issue, are the IT people who want everything the same to make their life easier.

    In places of government or in businesses where they work on 'confidential' government contracts these guidelines are put in place by an authority higher than the IT guy. We have many printers on the near by air force base that are setup in this manner. It also makes it easy to swap printers in and out when there are issues and the security is to high to have a civilian in the area.

    I think the 2 current Kyocera models FS-1320D & FS-2020D would fit your bill. (the DN models have the NIC card installed in them) You can get them pretty easily from machine wholesalers too.
