I just read your posts and the good replies to it. Here are my thoughts on this as well.

Food for thought:

Re: Lost networking to windows after Samba updates 4-18-2016

thanks
so far no luck
I still get a login box
more googling leads be to believe there is no easy way to roll back the updates
if it's broken for lots of people maybe it will be fixed soon
in the mean time I'll keep experimenting

thanks again for the suggestions

Brother Hl-3170cdw

Just a note to let you know the Brother Hl-3170cdw works fine under linux mint 17x mate edition.
Installed mine just after Christmas 2014 and it works flawless.
printer is set on a static IP on my wireless.
if you need a reasonably price color laser that works this is one that works
