Hi -

I'm trying to set up a printer to work wirelessly with our laptops.

We have a wireless router/modem combo from our ISP, so the Airport Express is no longer needed to connect to the internet.

But I'd like to plug the printer into the USB port of the Express and use that to connect the printer to our laptops.

So far, the express just shows a constant amber light and the Airport Utility shows no available devices even after multiple scans and restarts of both computer and Express.

One thing I haven't tried but will shortly is to plug the Express into my MacBook Pro via ethernet to see whether I can get it online.

Has anyone here been able to create a similar setup?

Many thanks in advance!!
QUOTE Thanks
