I have my network set up with the new airport extreme. Aside from the fact that it periodically loses connectivity (wired & wireless), now my USB printer no longer shows up in Bonjour. I tried to access it from my MacBook and my PC. Neither Airport utility (on the Mac & PC) is able to detect a USB printer. However, iDisk is still accessible. I figured it may have something to do with the USB hub connecting the drive and printer to the AE, so I decided to connect the printer directly. Again, no such luck.
I am reluctant to reset the router because - contrary to what Apple may want you to believe - setting it up is a pain.

That happened to me once or twice and all I did was quickly unplug Airport Extreme, plug it back in, and all was fine. I just updated the printer driver so maybe that will prevent the problem from happening again.
