I am about to pull out my hair. I was able to print from my laptop to a printer physically connected to my eMac. Both Mac's are connected thru a Belkin 802.11g router. The bad part is that the shared printer does not stay shared. When I tried to print a second time the shared printer did not show up as a printer option. I tried to add it by going thru Go>Utilities>Printer Setup but it didn't work either. The only way I was able to do it was by rebooting the eMac. Then the shared printer was available again. I locked the shared printer after rebooting but again, I could only print once.
I don't want to have to reboot just to print every time. Any ideas out there? I tried the discussion boards that Apple hosts and didn't get anything. I am all ears here. Thanks for any help. :dive:

have you tried repairing permissions? is this happening in certain apps only, or system wide?

Actually, I have only tried printing word docs or web pages. My concern is that the option for the shared printer is not there at all. I am completely confused. If necessary I will buy a print server but I'd like to fix the problem first. Don't want to let it beat me.
