    Question Bonjour for Windows
    I've got my PC hooked up via an Ethernet cable to Time Capsule. It connects ok as I can access the Internet, no problem. I cannot, however, print. I've installed Bonjour for Windows on the PC, but can't find anything that allows me to configure the printer. The instructions from Apple reference a "Bonjour Printer Wizard" on the desktop. I can't locate it. Help!

    Can't test it with my current setup but I all I had to do was install the Bonjour for Windows software then follow the usual
    Windows printer installation.

    Which version of Windows are you using?

    I'm running Windows XP Pro, v. 5.1. It's weird because I've loaded Bonjour a couple of times and it appears to load alright. Just can't locate the printer wizard (or anything else related to Bonjour). I did a search of my entire C-drive and the only think it located was the "read me" file and the program installer.

    I found a page that explained the setup rather than relying on my memory. The reader comments include several tips for problems with this setup. How to print from Windows XP via Bonjour | Ian Bell

    Thanks for that link, Slydude. It's clear I'm not the only one who's had this problem, but I'm still struggling. I tried uninstalling and re-installing the Time Capsule/AirPort disk on my PC. It's clear that AirPort is installed, but I apparently still need to find and then activate the printer via Bonjour. Here's what the Apple support page says about using Bonjour with Windows:

    "Bonjour for Windows includes a plugin to discover advertised HTTP servers using Internet Explorer. Click the Bonjour icon in the Internet Explorer toolbar to enable Bonjour browsing. If you have Bonjour devices on your local network with embedded HTTP (Web) servers, they will appear in the list.
    "

    I've poured over my Internet Explorer toolbar (and about every place else I could think of) and there's not a Bonjour icon to be found. Any other suggestions? Thanks again for your help and patience.

    Whoops, that yellow highlight didn't work too well. What I meant to emphasize there was:

    "Click the Bonjour icon in the Internet Explorer toolbar to enable Bonjour browsing"
