Default Wireless Printer?

I bought a new wireless router recently, to be able to use my new Sony laptop elsewhere in the house, and not just with the Ethernet cable to the new router. I could not figure out how to reset the password on the old router, and for $29 I overcame that problem, and besides, the new router is supposedly faster than the one from five years ago.

Now BestBuy comes along, knowing I bought the router, and suggests that I buy a wireless printer. I have been thinking about a new inkjet printer anyway, because the one that came with my wife's new computer years ago is a Canon MP 140. It has worked fine until recently, and now it is giving me paper feed troubles. If I leave paper in the feed for days, it then sometimes begins to not feed. New paper works fine. My bigger objection is the price of the ink jet cartridges.

So, any suggestions on a wireless inkjet printer which has inexpensive cartridges? A new printer would overcome the expensive cartridge, bad paper feed problems with the printer, and let me print with the new laptop anywhere in the house.
