I have a Linksys wireless print server connected to my USB printer and I want to be able to print to it from my PowerBook. When I go to the printer setup utility it finds the printer and I can add it but it wont allow me to print anyting. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Do you have the printer drivers loaded on your PB? Get Bonjour it should help.

I have the drivers on my PB. I will try Bonjour when I get my PB back from getting it fixed again.

I got my PowerBook back and I dont think that Bonjour is what I need since it is not connected to a Windows PC. I have the printer directly connected to the wireless print server and then that connects to my wireless network. I am still unable to connect to the printer. I called apple and they dont support stuff like that over the phone.

I can probably help you but I need to know the model LinkSys Printserver you are running. Want to see if it supports AppleTalk. If it does it will be a lot easier to get working.
