Question about Apple AirPort Extreme Wireless-N Wireless Base Station

HP DeskJet D2460 only prints grayscale through Airport Extreme

My HP DeskJet D2460 USB printer is hooked to the USB port of my new Airport Extreme.  My iMac is networked wirelessly to the Airport.  Internet connection works fine and I can print, but only in grayscale.  Apple Support has been less than helpful.  Any ideas?

    BTW to be a little more informative and fair, you could just grab the setup from the HP support website.

    Not a clue. Do you get to select printer properties in a MAC?

Computer does not see the printer

I was told by HP that I could not use USB over a network. I Called Apple support and was hooked up through my Airport Extreme using USB. You want a better solution invest in a Mac. They have the know how and what they are doing. It's like comparing a Model T to a Cadillac when you tout PC's.
