    I was buying the ink locally at an office supply store which would be around every three to 4 months of 50.00 for the combo set. I would have to buy both cause most do not sell them separately twice a year. I play 60 total for the service and that saves me at least 50 bucks a year. Though this only works for WiFi models on a network. I never got WPS to work on printers that supported it ever.
    WPS hasn't worked for me either on my HP printer. Another annoyance is that my router didn't see the printer, so I couldn't get the ip from the router web page. But, since I had a prior connection on this printer, I used the printer to tell me its ip and that worked to manually connect via hp-setup.

    You can get printer IDs with printing service page.

    Here's something I can't explain. I lost the wireless connection and nothing I did could get it back. The router simply did not see the printer and the printer did not see the network. For other reasons, I booted into Windows and the printer connected automatically, although with a new IP address. When I booted back into TW, the printer remained connected.
