    Specs:
    15" Macbook Pro, 2.16gz, 2gb RAM || 20" iMac, 2.4gz, 2gb RAM
    Printing wirelessly?
    Ok, heres the scenario..

    I got a PC wired to a router via ethernet, and my Macbook Pro connects wirelessly to the router..

    Is there any easy way to print? Cause brother has a Windows laptop, and laughs at me when he prints

    There is nothing special about the printer, its a HP550 and the router is a Netgear.

    Thanks for any help, this would be a real time saver.

    Setup the PC as a print server. I don't know how easy it will be to get the mac to connect.

    My setup has an HP laser jet setup as the print server itself. I think it's the whole HP Jet thing. So, I connect every computer directly to the printer.

    Whoops..

    Sorry for posting the same thread twice, but when I checked back this morning the thread was gone and I thought my internet hadnt registered it.

    Thanks for the replies, I will look into the print server thing.
