I have a Canon i860 photo printer set up on a XP machine in my basement, with a wireless access point as well. My iBook is set up on that network with no issues whatsoever. I would like to be able to print from my iBook, wirelessly to my printer. I set up the printer sharing on both my XP machine and my iBook and when I try to print from my iBook, it goes through and shows up in the print queue as a 'wireless document' but goes away almost instanly and nothing prints. When I set up the printer on my iBook, there is no option as far as the model for the i860, so I dont know if thatt has anything to do with it or not.
Any help willbe appreciated.
TIA

is the printer mac compatible? try going to canon.com and looking up the drivers for the printer, download them and install them, that should do it.

No luck, I installed the drivers...(I forgot to mention I did that in the first place) and it is still not an option in the 'model' list. Any other suggestions? The printer is mac compatible, as the drivers were for OS X.

I'm having exactly the same problem.
I've got the i860 shared off a win2k3 server, trying to connect with a G5 iMac. I installed the canon drivers on the mac, when i restarted a window popped up saying the print heads needed to be cleaned (this is before trying to connect to the printer). When i go to the printer setup utility and select the shared printer and pick canon as the manufacturer, the option to select i860 isn't there.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated
