Re: printing

YOu should be abled to accomplish this with an AIRPORT EXPRESS with n usb printer. The recent wireless n units configure in seconds. You can also seek out a Usb wireless print server. Which will allow multiple users to access a printer wirelessly. Many available online as this is a standard item.

Hope this helps.

Re: printing

You need: * A wireless-enabled computer. Many computers made over the last three years are already wireless capable, or they can operate wirelessly with adapters. * A wireless router. This will serve as your Wi-Fi access point, the hub of your network. * Broadband Internet access. While you can use your wireless router without any Internet access at all, or use dial-up, experts agree that there?s real value in accessing online content via DSL or cable and making it available to every computer in your house. The cost of doing so, like with the hardware, has dropped dramatically in the past several years. When you set up your network using the wireless router, you?ll need to identify that network on each of your wireless computers and during the installation process for your Lexmark wireless printers or all-in-one devices. You?ll be asked about your service set identifier (SSID), which is basically the name of your network. Don?t forget to consider the security of your network early in your decision process. * Common security types for networks include WEP, WPA and WPA2, and there is usually also an option for no security. At a minimum, you should look for WPA or WPA2 security and follow the manufacturer?s instructions to encrypt your signal and set your own password. A password isn't mandatory, but if you don't use one, it's far easier for others to access your network, and potentially your computer.

MacBook Pro won't print to my Epson Stylus Photo 300 - it used to

The flashing green light normally means that the computer is sending information to the printer.
If the printer is receiving information, but is not printing, the cartridges may need replacing, or the printer may be faulty.
Do you have a friend with a printer? Can you try printing to their printer just to check your computer is ok?

Macbook, lexmark f4270 driver

Apparently, the drivers for your printer is bundled in with the MAC OS CD. There are no MAC drivers on the Lexmark for your model. And the 4200 series should work.
Follow the instructions below.

Plug and Play
Steps Action 1 Power on the printer. 2 Plug the USB cable into the printer and into the Mac. 3 The Mac OS will automatically create the printer queue and install the printer.
Manual installation

If you plugged in the USB cable and the print queue was not created, follow these steps:
Steps Action Illustration 1 Plug the USB cable into the printer and into the Mac. ... 2 Launch System Preferences and select Print & Fax. Image 3 Click + to add the printer. Image 4 Select the printer, click Print Using and select your printer from the list. Then click Add to create the printer object. Image 5 Once the printer has been added, close System Preferences. The printer is now ready to print. Image
If you installed the driver from the printer·s installation CD or from a web download, uninstall it and follow the instructions below for recovering the driver from the Mac OS 10.5 (Leopard) CD.
Steps Action Illustration 1 Uninstall the installed driver. ... 2 Delete the Lexmark folder found in Library/Printers.
... 3
Insert the Mac OS 10.5 (Leopard) CD to recover the bundled driver and then click Optional Installs. Image 4 Click Optional Installs.mpkg. Image 5 Go through the installation process. ... 6 In the Optional Installs screen, select first Printer Drivers and then Lexmark Printer Drivers.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

File/printer sharing between mac and vista

I just now figured out a way to do this.

Just to recap - This is the problem:
Printer is hooked up to Vista PC and I'm trying to print from my MacBook Pro with Leopard.

Before doing this, be sure to check that the exceptions on your firewall are set to enable "File and Printer Sharing".

1) Go to the Vista PC as the administrator user and find the Network and Sharing Center in your Control Panel.
2) You want to turn on everything under Sharing and Discovery EXCEPT for Password protected sharing.
3) You can now close this screen and go to Printers (also in the Control Panel)
4) Find the printer you want to share, and right-click.
5) Click "Sharing"
6) You want to enable this printer to be shared on the network.
7) Click Apply and OK.
8) Go to your Mac and install the software for your printer driver on the mac. If you don't have the software, you can search the website of the vendor (aka HP, Lexmark, Samsung) to find the driver that is right for you.
9) If you allowed sharing correctly, you can go to finder and see that the vista computer will be in your sidebar.
10) Close the finder window and open up System Preferences. Select Print and Fax.
11) In the toolbar, you'll find an option for "Windows". Click it.
12) The workgroup from the Vista PC should show up. Click it and follow the hiearchy down to the printer.
13) At this point, you'll probably be prompted to use put in your mac password. Do that.
14) Seach for your newly installed printer driver in the popup window (matches up with the make and model of your printer). Hit continue and follow the directions.

15) If all goes well, then happy printing. :) If not, I would download Network Magic.

I just put this up because I just figured it out after 4 hours... and it's FREE. :)
