Question about Kodak EASYSHARE 5300 All-In-One InkJet Printer

Kodak 5500 Easyshare - Not really EasyShare

I want to print from various mac around the house using my Apple Time Capsule over Airport. Now this should not be a problem as the Time Capsule has a USB port for supporting the printer, but the printer does not like this at all. I can see the printer on the network, but it will not work. It will only support direct printer cable into the Mac.
This is a very big problem for Kodak. They have created the most economical printer and I love the machine, but not able to network is poor. So can anyone offer a solution? I know from reading the Apple and Kodak sites that this is a problem and many people are keen to see a answer to. 
Thanks
Derek

The Kodak printer was developed specifically to be used with other Kodak products. Notice how printing on non-kodak paper will end up with lower quality, and you can't use different brand ink with the printer. Another aspect of the printer that was developed with Kodak products in mind where the printers wireless capabilities. The printer will be finnicky with anything other than the Kodak bluetooth wireless adapter: http://www.kodak.com/eknec/PageQuerier.jhtml?pq-path=10605&pq-locale=en_US
The only other thing that was designed for it was the Silex Wireless Server: http://www.kodak.com/eknec/PageQuerier.jhtml?pq-path=12511&pq-locale=en_US

If you get anything else to work with the printer it's either an extreme feat of engineering or luck.

How do I Connect iPad to printer ?


depends on the printer model....
if you have a recent type of printer with Airprint capability it is very easy to setup wireless.
however if you have an old printer with only a USB-cable you'll need another device to get it working:
Apple sells WiFi-devices like Airport-Express, Time-Capsule and Airport-extreme
Print command central.
The included USB port is great for sharing a printer throughout your wireless network. Time Capsule and the Bonjour networking technology let everyone in the house or office - Mac and PC users alike - take advantage of one centrally located printer.

Trying to update firmware on y airport extreme but i forgot my password


You need to perform a soft reset of your router. There directions to do this from the Apple web site are:
  1. Connect the AirPort Base Station or Time Capsule to power.
  2. Press and hold the reset button with a pen or pencil for 1 full second, then release it. The light (LED) will begin flashing amber, indicating that the AirPort Base Station or Time Capsule is in soft reset mode.
  3. From the AirPort menu bar item, choose the network created by the AirPort Base Station or Time Capsule (the network name does not change).
  4. Open AirPort Utility in Applications > Utilities on a Mac using Mac OS X, and in Start > All Programs > AirPort on a computer using Windows.
  5. Select the AirPort Base Station or Time Capsule and click Continue.
  6. A window indicating that the device has been reset will appear.
  7. Select "Restore the previous settings" and select OK.
  8. Move through subsequent windows to make changes to your passwords or other settings as desired, clicking Continue after each one.
  9. When you have moved through all of the selection windows you will be able to select Update. Click Update to install the new settings.
  10. Click Continue to allow your AirPort Base Station or Time Capsule to restart.
  11. Quit AirPort Utility.

These directions are from the Apple Support Web Site:

Networking a mac and a xp computer with a kodak 5500 printer


I'm in the same boat here, I just found out that my new 2008 Mac Pro will not be able to print to my Kodak EasyShare 5500. Unhooking the printer from the Windows machine, so I'll have to print EVERYTHING through a VMWare Fusion (Windows) machine.
It's a shame for Kodak, a nice printer, but without industry standard functionality I really don't see them capturing market share. I will buy elsewhere next time unless they get on the ball, fast!
