    Hi,
    your post is not really clear. Do you have problems with your Airport (Express?) wifi ? or with the printer ? Is the printer connected to the Airport or to one of your computers ?

    Okay first, make sure that your printers firmware contains wireless printing options. You can probably find the correct info online by searching you printers make and model. Second, connecting to another computer can be done by clicking on the airport signal on your menu bar, you should see the other computers name in the drop down.Select which one you want to connect with and be sure to do the same on the other.

    What ?? In Leopard, when you click on the Airport signal you just see other wireless networks. Not other computers in your current network.

    Not totally positive but if the other computer is bearing an airport card then in the same drop down create a network connection for the 2. If both are a mac and have airport cards, they will solely create a network immediately. This I know because currently using all of my computers on the same network.
