The Print and Page Setup dialogs lists any USB printers connected to your computer, any network printers you have added, and all the printers that are shared by other computers on your local network.

To hide all the printers that are shared by other computers (which appear in the Printer List with a pink-shaded background), open Print Center preferences and deselect "Show printers connected to other computers."

To hide printers you don't want to use, open Print Center and deselect the checkbox in the Favorite column next to the printers in the Printer List. All the printers still appear in Print Center, but only your favorites appear in the dialogs.

To see if a printer is shared, open Print Center and look in the Host column of the Printer List. You cannot delete shared printers from the Printer List in Print Center (but you can hide them, as described above).

To see the Favorite or Host column, choose Columns from the View menu.

You should have Printer & Faxes or similar option somewhere in your system configuration where you change your system settings. Open it up and select the unwated printers. Uninstall/delete them. I'm no expert on Mac OS's, but i think that ought to solve your problem

    Computer freezes after about 5 min of use, with the rainbow twirling. Have tried apps/util/ repair and still the same prob. Have a MacBook.


    Click on the apple icon at the left top corner of your screen and then click on about this mac. Then select more info. Now select the Memory and look on the screen to see if the status is "OK" for both RAM chips. Spinning wheel of death means something is wrong with the RAM chips. Take the RAM chips out and replace them with new ones or take them out and re-seat them and see if that helps. If that don't help, then select the "system preferences icon". Click on accounts under the system title., select your icon account, then click on login items, and then select all the items on the list and click on the minus button to get rid of them. Then restart your computer to see if that don't help any. All these login in items are not needed and slow down your machine a lot. Your not actually deleting the programs-your only removing them from the startup files. So don't be scared. If that don't help, then back up your files and re-install your OS. If that don't help, then your SOL and you got to see the expensive Apple tech and have them put in a new logic board for ya.

    How Do I install Printer Driver for HL-5240DN to Mac os 9?


    System preference, print & fax icon, add a printer (no need to use the software install disk), when you add the printer use the default protocol: Line Printer Daemon-LPD, address if you know your IP address type that in if not type in localhost and this will locate your printer and fill the print using field.

    Sometimes this works and sometimes it doesn't, if it fails go back in and under the print using field scroll for the driver or printer model, and selelct - Brother HL-525ODN or whatever brand you are trying to conect to and save.

    Error 6911


    You'll have to use google.com to translate this because I don't speak Spanish, but I used it to translate your text into English.

    What you're seeing is PostScript being output to a non-PostScript printer. Mac OS 9 LaserWriter driver prints only PostScript. Make sure you've downloaded the correct driver from HP, and then make sure you're selecting the HP driver in the Chooser.

    Please let me know if this information helps or not.

    Macintoshes and Print Servers, the PS110 in Particular


    Topic 1. What do I need to connect a Macintosh to the PS110 Print Server? A PostScript printer with a parallel interface, a Mac running MacOS 8.6, 9.x, or 10.x. (NETGEAR products are not supported for earlier versions.), and Ethernet cables to connect the Print Server to the printer, and the Print Server to your Macs, and to a router. NETGEAR's RP614 router is known to work connecting the PS110 to the Internet with Macs. Topic 2. How do I avoid losing my network configuration when restarting my Mac? When changing theMacOS configuration it is best to use Configurations (MacOS 8.x or 9.x) or Network Location (MacOS 10.x) settings instead of changing settings for each category (TCP/IP, AppleTalk, AirPort, etc.). That way you can be sure the changes will not be lost after rebooting. To Create a Configuration in MacOS 8.x or 9.x 1. Open AppleTalk (or TCP/IP) from the Apple Menu in the upper left-hand corner of the screen. 2. Select File > Configurations > New Configuration. 3 . Type a meaningful name for your new configuration (e.g., NETGEAR Wireless Router). 4 . Make your changes to the AppleTalk or TCP/IP settings. 5 . When closing AppleTalk or TCP/IP choose Save Changes. Whenever making Configuration changes for settings in MacOS 8.x or 9.x, open File > Configurations or press Command-K. Changes in Configurations are saved after rebooting. To Create a Network Location in MacOS 10.x 1. Open the Apple Menu by clicking the Apple icon in the upper left of the screen. 2. Select System Preferences. The System Preferences window displays. 3. Click Internet & Network > Network. The Network Settings window displays. 4. If the window is locked, click the Lock icon in the lower left to unlock the Network window. (You may be asked for a username and password.) 5. Click the pull down menu next to Location at the top of the Network window. 6. Select New Location. 7. Type a name for your new location and click OK. 8. Make your changes to the TCP/IP, AppleTalk, and AirPort settings. 9. Click the Lock icon in the lower left to prevent further changes. The Apply configuration changes window displays. 10. Click Apply to keep the configuration changes for the newly-created location. 11. Close the Network window. Topic 3. How do I connect a Mac to the PS110 Print Server? For MacOS 8.6 and 9.x 1. Follow the instructions in the NETGEAR PS110 Installation Guide coming with the Print Server. (The CD is not needed unless you need the Reference Guide.) 2. Connect the PS110 Print Server to the PostScript printer with a parallel interface. (You cannot use non-PostScript printers with Macs on the PS110 Print Server.) 3. Connect the Print Server to the Mac. 4. Install the Printer Driver for the printer to be used with the PS110 Print Server on your Mac. 5. Open Chooser from Apple Menu. 6. Select LaserWriter 8. 7. Select the PostScript Printer to use. (This is probably the description for the PS110 Print Server and may have a name like ?PSD90335?. This name may be different on your computer.) 8. Click Setup. 9. Click Select PPD. 10. Select your printer from the Printer Descriptions list. 11. Close the Chooser. 12. Click OK. A message displays: ?You have changed your Desktop Printer.? You can now connect to the RP614 Router Gateway, and to the Internet. For MacOS 10.x 1. Follow the instructions in the printed NETGEAR PS110 Installation Guide coming with the Print Server. (The CD is not needed unless you need the Reference Guide.) 2. Connect the PS110 Print Server to the PostScript printer with a parallel interface. (You cannot use non-Post Script printers with the Mac and the PS110.) 3. Connect the Print Server to the Mac. 4. Install the Printer Driver for the printer you will be using with the PS110 Print Server on your Mac. 5. Open Utilities > Print Center in the MacOS 10.2 Applications folder. The Printer List appears. 6. Click Add. The Printer Selection window appears. 7. From the top of the Printer Selection window, select AppleTalk from the first pull down menu. 8. Select Local AppleTalk Zone from the second pull down menu below. 9. Click the Print Server from the list in the window. PSD90335 ? PostScript Printer in the case of this test. 10. Click the pull down Printer Model, and select the model of printer connected to your Print Server. A list of printers displays. 11. From the scrolling list select the Model Name of the printer connected to your Print Server. 12. Click Add. 13. Printer List displays with the list of printers and print servers connected to your Mac. Select the name of the Print Server from the Printer List. 14. Click Make Default. 15. Close the Printer List. 16. Open a file and try printing it. You can now connect to the RP614 Router Gateway, and to the Internet.
