I recently added a MacBook Pro to my PC network. Being a tech, I figured that adding the Mac would be painless until I got to printer sharing. I tried a number of approaches, but I couldn't find a reliable solution for PC, Mac, and multifunction printer sharing. That was until I lamented and purchased an Apple Airport Extreme. It solved my problems easily and has proven to be a reliable solution. If you are interested, you can read more about what I did on my blog here:

I have the same situation, and it worked fine until I wanted to scan or copy. That did not work. If you know of a solution to that let me know
