When I had my old HP Compaq Presario X6000 laptop, it had a wifi card, I kept it downstairs in our dining room and I was able to print documents from it upstairs in my office from my Epson Stylus CX7800 printer that is connected to my Dell Dimension 8200 PC, which also has a wifi card.

My MacBook Pro was one of these that was unveiled at the WWDC last month in June, and it was ordered brand new from's online store.

Could someone please walk me through a step-by-step tutorial on how to set
up my MacBook Pro to print wirelessly from the printer that's connected to my Dell Dimension computer?

Thank you

P.S. I keep my MacBook Pro downstairs in our dining room as I did with my old laptop.

Guys, I got my printer set up on my mac to print wirelessly - I used it to print out the Boot Camp instructions from Boot Camp Assistant on my mac.
QUOTE Thanks
